5 Fantastic Artworks by Federico Uribe

Here are 5 stunning pieces of artwork by Federico Uribe. As can be seen, the artworks are made from everyday objects, such as jigsaw pieces, pencils and coins. I can remember back in the days of art class, where there wasn’t a computer in sight. All we had to work with were pencils, coloured pastels, vaious paints, and of course – pencils! The ends of these were either thrown away or simply put back into the art trays. No-one ever used used them, so it’s good to see an artist like Uribe find such a fantastic use for the old pencil-ends and suchlike…

Pencil Art

These funky pencil art photos were produced by Bisy Backson, a creative from Amsterdam. I love original work such as this, and its good to escape the amount of digital and Photoshop work out there [SEE THE REST OF THE SET HERE].

Learn More about the Coloured Pencil on Wikipedia:

A colored pencil, coloured pencil r pencil crayon is an art medium constructed of a narrow, pigmented core encased in a wooden cylindrical case. Unlike graphite and charcoal pencils, colored pencils’ cores are wax- or oil-based and contain varying proportions of pigments, additives, and binding agents. Water-soluble (watercolor) pencils and pastel pencils are also manufactured as well as colored leads for mechanical pencils [more].

Victorian Graphic Design Posters


Please Stumble this Post:



I found these Victorian graphic design posters and leaflet collection via Attitude Design. I think it’s great to look back upon design ‘before Photoshop‘ and see how different and varied advertising was back then. I rally like the one shown below, with the man posing in the ever-so-classic ‘fight pose’. Did boxers really stand like this? Check out the poster of a woman holding a camera up in the air, too. Classic.

As it happens, I recently visited the National Media Museum in Bradford, here in England, where they have an entire collection of vintage cameras and their corresponding Victorian graphic design posters and other interesting artifacts.

My Personnel Experience with Drawing Ink Pens

On another note, when I was at University (Coventry, UK), myself and the rest of the students were all asked to buy a set of ink pens for a project. It was then that I saw how remarkable these pends can be. I think the smallest nib was a 0.1, and then the ‘Rotering Set’ went all the way up to 0.9 or 1.0 I think. I still use them to this day, years later, although I don’t buy the ones with inc cartridges any longer. I use the ‘DP’ ones instead. You can check out one of my Moleskine Sketches sing these ink pens over on Pure Christian Graphic Design entitled “Cross Walkies Photo Illustration“.

Prominent Brands Color-Swapped with Competitor Logos

Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts logos image

These interesting designs were created by Brazilian graphic designer, Paula Rúpolo. Apparently, Paula was working on another logo design when she began to research into various brands and their color schemes. As part of this research, she swapped-out the colors of prominate and famous brand logos, including comparisons form the likes of Playmobil and LEGO (see further down this post).

I think this type of work is fantastic, and remind me of the swapped logos design ‘experiment’ by Fabio Di Corleto. Image Above: Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts logos.
