So my friend Pınar showed me a pretty good wallpaper website, and I am sure you’ll like it. The wallpapers are in good quality, and here are two I downloaded – I made Yotsuba-chan my wallpaper and Hatsune Miku my google background. (oh and yes, you can change your google page background by clicking on the text “Change background image” on the lower left of the page)
I was just looking at some of my older blog posts – I know I haven’t been updating, for some reason neither blogspot nor wordpress loads from home (we are really contemplating changing our internet service provider since that isn’t the only problem we are having at the moment) – Anyway I came across this one about pixel illustrations of the star wars characters and it reminded this video so here you go:
As a bonus (and for an apology for being absent for a long while, here is a great illustration from Ulises Farinas, also featuring Tattooine. (click on the image for the hi-res version)
Here are some illustrations made by Cory Godbey about some fairy-folk tales. I like the style very much, and hope you enjoy it too. My faves are The Princess and the Dragon from The Four Clever Brothers and The Troll from the Three Billy Goats (which oddly was one of my favorite stories from preschool.)
So, some months ago I watched all of the Star Wars movies starting with episodes IV, V, VI and then I, II and III. In a few days, because I didn’t have the time to do a marathon and frankly, my eyes are already -7 degrees. I had watched IV, V and I before but I never had time to watch the whole series, and I guess I just love how the series play out. esp III, but II was boring as hell. Anyway, because I am making a pixel game for my graduation project, I look at a lot of stuff other people do, so here are Andy Rash‘s pixel Star Wars characters! I love all of them, especially the details where he made the arm – cutting cliché ^^

I guess we were all shocked because of the earthquake last week. I spent many hours worrying about relatives that live in places where the tsunami was possibly headed after the disaster in north-east Japan.
Here are some posters that were released after the earthquake to raise awareness or funds to help the people in their time of need.
Graphic designer Max Erdenberger of Wieden + Kennedy has designed this screen-printed poster to raise money for disaster relief following the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan at the end of last week. Purchase this poster here.

Life-size statues near Cancún, Mexico, in a late 2010 picture.
More than 400 of the permanent sculptures have been installed in recent months in the National Marine Park of Cancún, Isla Mujeres, and Punta Nizuc as part of a major artwork called “The Silent Evolution.” The installation is the first endeavor of a new underwater museum called MUSA, or Museo Subacuático de Arte.
