I am a bit on a Stina Persson roll this week: Stina just launched a brand new print over on Wonderwall. Would make a good Tattly as well, no?
The talented and delightful Gael Towey recently started a short film series called Portraits in Creativity in which she documents artists and their inspirations, revealing the courage and curiosity that propel the creative act.

Given that I believe in the importance of side-projects and in recognizing your own superpower, this illustration of Side-Project Man by Andy J. Miller made me chuckle.
Adam J. Kurtz sent me this giant handwritten note in the mail. Can’t stop smiling.
I need to hang this print by Andrew Neyer above my computer so I remember to drink water throughout the day. Oh, healthy habits…
A Tumblr filled with incredibly charming animated gif drawings, by Thoka Maer: It’s No Biggie.
Very Semi-Serious is a documentary aiming to go behind the scenes of the New Yorker. It introduces the past, present and future generations of cartoonists who have inspired, baffled—and occasionally pissed off—all of us for decades.
Totally backing this Kickstarter. Let’s make it happen.
Hey twitter-verse, who is your favorite illustrator? Trying to find new talented folks.
— Tina Roth Eisenberg (@swissmiss) May 9, 2013
Last night, I sent out the above Tweet, asking for Illustrator recommendations. The response has been incredible. In fact, I found so many talents on that thread that I figured I should share it here, on my blog. Thanks to everyone that responded. I can’t help but feel that the internet is quite a magical place.
Feel free to add your favorite illustrator as a comment below.
A typeface made out of cats? I am not even a cat person but this is making my head explode: Helveticat. Congrats to Bethany Lesko, the designer.
The launch of Vine, the Instagram of video, has been fascinating to watch over the past few weeks. Obviously everyone is trying to figure out what works, but users like Mark Weaver sure found a unique way to play with the format. His LEGO Vines are my personal favorites. Imagine a stop motion art project using Lego bricks and Vine. See the growing archive over on legovines.tumblr.com.
