There are a lot of great photo products out there and a seemingly equal number of blogs that showcase stuff to buy. I don't usually share products, but this poster by Pop Chart Lab is an exception. They are offering this beautiful poster of 100 cameras. A mini history of the tools of the trade. And it's a steal at $22.
I fill up my sketchbooks quickly. Fill isn't quite the correct word because I regularly go back and add to my older books. I started a new journal in January, and it's already bursting at the seams. This time, I decided to make a few at a time, so what you are looking at are folded pages for three new journals!
I have been following the blog, 50 Watts for years because of Will Schofield’s dedication to showcasing beautiful historical books, design and illustration from around the world. A visual journey, his blog is well worth the visit.
I discovered Fay Helfer via one of my favorite blogs, Street Anatomy. Pyrography – the practice of wood burning – is a long time camp favorite. I remember trying it a few years ago and had results that were mediocre at best (and I broke the tip of the tool - sorry, Ken!). Fay Helfer combines elegant pyrography with colored pencil and pastel on wood to create organic and anatomical images.
