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 ^^

Love the juice packaging idea.
“Jooze is a fictional company that manufactures fresh fruit juices, catered especially to kindergarten and primary school students. It is a company that believes that healthy eating habits should begin at a very young age.
The shape of the logo is inspired by the shape of a sliced fruit, and the handwritten typeface used is to portray a sense of fun, hands-on personality and characteristic that appeals to kids and toddlers. The logo also consists of singular bright colours, which may vary depending on the flavour of the juice. This would hopefully be a recognisable icon whereby children can relate and connect to the brand.
A simplified illustration of the fruits are to further clarify the flavours, to add visual aesthetics, and to appeal and connect to the target audience.
The juice box is shaped in an unconventional way to incorporate the essence of the logo, to gain instant recognition from the audience, and to capture their attention, especially if this product is placed alongside other juices on the supermarket shelves.”

So, I’ve fell in love with these box critters, boximals since I saw the featured comic on FML. Brought to you by Jeffrey Jang, a freelancer graphic designer and illustrator living in Coquitlam, British Columbia. I’d say these are lovely character designs, I especially love the cats and the turtles. Enjoy!
