Comical Furniture

Comics are a unique form of art and literature that have the ability to communicate with people from all over the world even if they don’t speak the same language. Silvia Zachello is universally connecting people with her storyboard furniture which is available either online or at all good furniture stores in Venice and Milan.

Vintage Camera Night Light

Growing up, my father always had a camera in his hand. It was part of his profession as a graphic designer and a part of my life because it was also his hobby; I’d be the one who’d usually have to hold the side light for him on shoots. In a digital age, using film based cameras might sound a little out there, but it used to be that the only way you could see your picture was to develop it, or have them developed.
Jayfish on Flickr has managed to find a way to add functionality to vintage cameras by taking examples from the 50’s & 60’s and converting them into night-lights.  
If you like what you see and would like to own one, head over to Etsy online store. Alternatively if you have any collecting dust on your shelf and would like to have a go at making one yourself, he’s been kind enough to provide a DIY guide.

Words Create Worlds

I made this piece of pop art to demonstrate that audio alone has the ability to create powerful and vivid images in the mind of the listener. You can close your eyes, but you can’t close your ears. 

Listening is a difficult experience not to do, and for this reason I felt that the combination of an iconic gun with a rotary dial phone was appropriate. If you’ve ever heard a gun being fired then you will know the distinctive sound that echoes in your head. The turning dial represents the chamber in a revolver and the phone symbolises the power of the spoken word.
