1. Jeff Roger’s McDonalds Ad
I love putting a face to a design that I’ve known and loved. I had seen this McDonald’s ad awhile ago, loved the painted textures and typography but never knew who created it. THen I ran acorss Jeff Roger’s portfolio. And his behind the scenes process images! And then I loved this ad even more. It’s just gorgeous work! See more of this campaign and more of Jeff’s work here.
2. Seasons Cover by Eiko Ojala
I’m obsessed with the intricacies of paper cutting… largely because I have no patience for it so I am in awe of what people can create with it when they take the time and have that inherent passion for creating art from scraps of paper. All that to say, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the teeny tiny details of this magazine cover for Seasons, from Eiko Ojala‘s portfolio on Behance. It is so intricate and chock full of details. See more here. Found via Mr. Cup.
3. It’s a Small World Book, Illustrated by Joey Chou
Not long ago, I posted about this new Disney show inspired by the It’s A Small World Disneyland attraction . I really loved the look of the show since it was heavily inspired by Mary Blair’s work. So when I saw this book at the Wonderground Downtown Disney gallery, I just had to have it! Illustrated by Joey Chou, the layouts are just gorgeous and so full of life! See more images of the book on Joey’s blog, purchase on Amazon here.
4. Classic Disney Animation Recreations
Speaking of Disney art, you may have seen this image floating around the web this last week or two…. artist Tyson Murphy took a screencapture from 101 Dalmations and then painting over it to practice and explore the lighting of the scene. Really beautiful work. Love the little bits of debris and other items caught in the light. Also see one from Sword in the Stone.
5. Aged Wood DIY
I love Jess’ Whip It Up Wednesday posts… where she posts a quick little craft project. They’re usually pretty easy and something that can be “whipped up” within an hour or so. But I was super excited to see this DIY!
A few months ago, her hubby Scott made me the most amazing shelves that used this painting technique. And I seriously love them—for so many reasons—but the paint job is my favorite!
Follow this link to see the rest of her post. I’ve already painted a frame following her tutorial, it was seriously so easy!
