Illustration Inspiration : JooHee Yoon

We love JooHee Yoon's work! Each picture expresses a rich story that will keep the inquisitive imagination busy for hours! Her illustrations are masterfully crafted with elegant colour usage, fascinating characters and, by mostly using traditional printmaking methods onto paper, a wonderful tactile quality is achieved.

Her work has been celebrated internationally by being featured in American Illustration, Communication Arts, and 3x3, and she has also won numerous awards.

Go and have a look at more of her work on her website here.

Ceramics Exhibition

Royale Eatery in Cape Town is hosting a marvelous exhibition curated by illustrator and ceramics artist Elise Wessels called “CHAMPAGNE for my real friends”. 27 artists were handed 2 handcrafted plates each, for them to decorate the plates with their own designs and concepts. Elise then collected the plates from them to glaze and fire them. Most of the artists have never worked with ceramics before, and the results are sometimes surprising, but above all astoundingly beautiful.

The exhibition is on until 11 January 2013, so do yourself a favor and drop in to see their handiwork.

Click here for more information on the exhibition, the artists and to view Elise Wessels portfolio.

Wooden Masks by AJ Fossik

The masterful work of AJ Fossik is intriguing and mesmerising. Working from Philadelphia in the US, AJ has been creating 3 dimensional wood constructions for quite a few years now. His work shows excellent craftsmanship, uniqueness and reminds one of totem-like characters out of old folk tales and night mares. Yet, you cannot stop staring and investigating these strange and beautiful characters fiercely glaring at you. We love AJ's ferocious yet colourful wooden masks. Below are some of our favourites.

For more information on AJ Fossik and his work, go visit his website here.

Type Delight : Melbourne Typeface

We absolutely love this font. Melbourne is a clean and compact modern san-serif font, and fantastic with almost everything. Melbourne was designed by Marco Müller with the help of Professor Jovica Veljović from the Department Design of the HAW Hamburg, and developed during a study semester in Australia.

If you would like to explore it for yourself, go and download it for free here.
