Tasty Icons: 500 hand-drawn food icons

My latest icons set is finally out. It took a couple of months to paint and prepare everything, and it was totally worth it.

It’s huge, it’s delicious and absolutely awesome.

500 hand-drawn food and restaurant icons – anything from kebab to tiramisu, guacamole and sushi, chorizo and shiitake. It was tough, because while 500 good icons made it into the set I had paint around 700. But I guess, I’m just a foodie.

Hong Kong Neon Signs

Chinese neon signs are some of the most beautiful things in the world, they are one of the reasons I decided to move to China. Recently I’ve found this cool project that glorifies neon signs of Hong-Kong.


www.neonsigns.hk is an interactive, online exhibition dedicated to exploring, mapping and documenting Hong Kong’s neon signs.

There is very handy map that helps to locate and categorize neon signs of the city.


These are just few examples…

Chinese fonts by REDESIGN

It’s always hard to find nice modern Chinese fonts. That’s why I was so happy, when I stumbled upon a website of Beijing based typographic designer Ding Yi (丁一) and his company Redesign. I must confess it’s the cleanest, the most nicely designed Chinese website I’ve seen.

Wang Ling (王灵)

One of my favorite part in fashion magazines is photographs of objects of fashion – watches, jewelery, bags, etc., if it’s done in an unusual, creative way. The very best, the most creative object styling I’ve seen were in Russian Esquire magazine. But here, in China I also have found nice examples of styling and object photography. From Outlook magazine, by Wang Ling (王灵).

Calligraphic Voices

Looking through great graphic novel about Batman “Arkham Asylum”, illustrated by genious Dave McKean, I discovered how beautifully and witty McKean introduces characters of the novel, using creative callighraphy. I think this is especially suitable there because all the characters of the book are so beautifully and frightfully mad, and you can see this in what and how they write.

I decided to share one of my favorite illustrator on Flickr – L Filipe dos Santos (aka Corcoise). He mostly draw skinny girls with big eyes and noses and this would be not enough for me to like the artist but for opposite effect. But Corcoise’s people are so lively, so perfect-unperfect that I love to see everithing he draws or paints. And he does a lot, with all kind of natural media.

Take a look!
