Bluebirds fly

Just because Joplin, Missouri happens to be an American mid-west town close to my heart, I thought I'd share these lovely prints. St.Louis Based Moosylvania put together a series of posters to benefit relief efforts in the recently tornado-stricken city. Each poster is signed by the artist and screen printed by hand to order. All proceeds will be donated to the Southwest Missouri chapter of United Way to aid in the economic reconstruction.

Support UnitingWorld in the 2011 City2Surf

Asking any of the Boheem Team members if they're interested in running the City2Surf is like asking if they could please run a quick errand to North India. I put the question out there, and all it does is start a conversation about what running "used to be like", and the comparing of notes of when the last time any of us actually ran for a bus.

I digress. Rob Lutton of UnitingWorld is taking one for the team and running the City2Surf to help raise money for Relief and Development and their work among those living in poverty in Asia, Africa and the Pacific. Click here if you'd like to donate.

Dear Photograph

Ever looked at your old pictures and wondered what happened to your favourite treehouse, park or the front porch of your first family home? This blog is dedicated to user submitted photographs re-shot in the same location as they were originally taken. The result is a cute glimpse into past childhood memories and family moments. It's amazing how little some things change. Can't wait to dig out some old photos and try it myself!

Wanna be a Movie-Maker?

These infographics made for Canal+ take the cake. I'm not sure if the point is to make clear just how easy it can be, or just how hard it is to make a movie... but I've got a feeling it's the latter. One thing I know, is that I like the designer's approach and I wish I knew who he/she was. In any case, next time you find yourself thinking your true unearthed vocation is actually in making horror movies, simply refer back to the relevant diagram and wah-la! You'll be underway before you can say "Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

Oliver Nieder

Brrr! It's c-c-c-cold in Sydney at the moment. Ok, so maybe not nearly as icy as it becomes in other parts of the world... or even other parts of this country. But my 50% wool jacket just doesn't seem to be cutting the mustard early in the morning when I leave for work! Check out these beautiful wintery shots by Oliver Nieder. His work has an eerie stillness to them which makes me feel a little uneasy but lured in at the same time.

Marise Maas

Maybe it's the horses which make me love this artist's work so much. Marise Maas lives and shows in Melbourne, and her paintings seem to hold a happy naivety which makes me wonder how she knows where to begin and when to end.

Boris Pelcer

Beyond having a wonderful name, Boris Pelcer is very talented and I adore his self-promoting business cards. Wish I'd a) thought of that and b) had the time and patience to create something so thoroughly detailed and beautiful for our own studio...
