Gabriel Dawe

Shower of light?

Nope, these are artist Gabriel Dawe's installations, made with thread.

Take a look at his website to see more amazingness.

p. s.: This is a scheduled post. When this will be posted, I will actually be in my first class at university for this year! Eep!! :)

a cluster of links

First of all, thank you, Melissa Chaib, for following the blog! You rock. :D

Now for the usual cluster of links:

+ That awkward moment...

+ Apart from creating new words (such as blogging, facebooking, tweeting), the Internet has invented a lot of new emotions. Here's a list of five of them.

+ Graphic Design from the Noughties

+ Ben Wilson, chewing gum artist.

+ Nail art: Vintage Rose Wallpaper (how pretty! Btw, I got O.P.I. Russian Navy, in matte! I like it, although next time I might want to get the glossy version.)

+ Simple, and very effective stop motion: Pepper heart

+ They draw and cook.

+ The prettiest mouse pads I've seen. (Click on the image to see it full size)

the month of valentine

I know that I haven't posted the usual 'cluster of links' for this week, but I have been working on something else for everyone (while keeping up with a few other things in the non-bloggy life... hehe). I have designed a few Valentine-themed desktop wallpapers that I will share here from Monday-Friday next week.

So, see you on Monday!

Edit: Hmm... should I also post some of my university work/other projects here?

Nubby Twiglet

Nubby Twiglet is quite a good source for design students. I have just recently started following her blog, and she is oh-so-inspirational. You should most definitely follow Nubby Twiglet if you're a Graphic Design student.

p.s.: Yes, I love the name "Nubby Twiglet". :D


Hello! Did you all have a lovely—and, for those who are in New Zealand, long—weekend?

We went to Rotorua (no photos, sorry!), and had the most fun with our family friends and their two adorable daughters (who I consider my sisters; I'm an only child). I screamed a lot while luge-ing, and then I screamed some more while zorbing. It's kind of embarassing that the six-year-old wasn't remotely scared while I was, well, nervous. Oh well. I had good fun in the end :P and I definitely want to do it again. I wish they had more of this stuff in Auckland too, but we got the Sky Tower.

And then, we went to Waitomo Caves. While we were in the 'cathedral' part of the caves, our guide asked if anyone from our group would like to sing to us, as a lot of world-class singers had held concerts in there. I put my hand up. The guide turned off all the lights, and I sang 'You Raise Me Up' for our tour. I thought it fitted the atmosphere perfectly, in those cool, quiet caves. It was quite a magical moment. :)

This is how I spent the last days of the first month of this new year. Can't believe we're in to February already! And before long I will be exhibiting my final project for the course, and collecting my degree!
