Good Morning everyone : ) A nice mix of things today...I hope you enjoy e!
I stumbled upon Esther Coombs when flicking through some Etsy finds... and then spent a good amount of time oohing and ahhing over her work, both in her store and on her website.. (I like it when that happens!).
Esther's work consists of a collection of intricate drawings and collage. Both her paper and ceramic work have a sense of ease in the way she overlays her illustration onto each piece, but on closer inspection you notice her intricate detailing and how cleverly she gives new life to often old discarded china and books.
There is much more to see in Esther's store and on her website so I suggest you go on over and check out the rest of her work...
Here's a peek:

I really like this series of work by Traci Edwards. I love her use of colour - we all need a bit more colour in our lives right?? - and I particularly love the detail in the "Do Horses Grow on Trees" Print (pictured first below).
If you have a look through the collection of works below you will notice that Traci not only produces a fab range of graphic prints, but her acrylic jewellery and Jar Diorama's are also fantastic - enjoy!

I spotted this over at David Stark's blog and just had to share it with you! I know it's probably old news but there's no harm sharing it again...
Officially opened in 2006, The Eureka Tower is Melbourne's (Australia) tallest building, and is the second tallest all-residential building in the world. The building itself is pretty impressive, but it is the first 9 floors of car parking space that I want to share with you.
Axel Peemoeller designed Eureka's very cool way-finding-system while working for Emery Studio in Melbourne. Inspired by the work of Swiss artist Felice Varini, Axel developed these (pictured below) distorted sets of lettering that can be read perfectly when standing in the right position... have a look!
