Julian James works under the alias of Whyisbox and recently updated his site. He was kind enough to inform me about it. Unfortunately he doesn’t provide a lot, or none, info about himself. His designs speak from themselves. I love his character designs and simplistic approach. He’s still busy uploading new stuff to his portfolio. I can’t wait to see his other designs.

In this post I will present my 11 favourite tv series opening sequences. Usually I am really annoyed when the intro lasts longer than 10 seconds, but with these series it is a pleasure to watch them. Some are very artistic, some I like partly because of the theme song. I hope you enjoy watching the intros.
After reading Andrew Houles’s post about inspiring yellow logos at myinkblog I decided to present inpirational blue logos. Before judging me and thinking I would simply rip his idea I want to emphasize on the fact that I got Andrew’s blessing. This post is intended to be an addition to the yellow inspiration series at myinkblog. Please visit his site and show him some love and appreciation for his awesome continouus efforts to inspire people. I hope you’ll like both posts and that you’ll discover some new logos that you dig.
Linn Olofsdotter is an insanely talented illustrator from Sweden who’s now working in Brazil. She got a tutorial in the August issue of Computer Arts Magazine which should be available soon on their website. If you can’t wait try to get your hands on a copy. It’s well worth it! Linn Olofsdotter combines hand drawn elements with beautiful colour schemes and awesome textures. I really wish I had her talent. This is a premiere for fudgegraphics. Linn is the first female artist to be featured on fudgegraphics, but I hope there’ll be more to come. Below is a selection of her work. More inspiration from her massive portfolio.
With temperature rising to 26 ºC (in London) and above there’s no better time to get in the mood for summer. Who knows how long it will last. Therefore I put together a collection of the best summer wallpapers for all those who have to sit in front of a computer, but still want to feel the heat. No sunblock needed.

I can’t think of any site with more inspiration or resources than deviantArt. It is a must for everyone interested in design. The one feature I like the most is the favourite-service. Not only can you add artworks to your favourites, but you can sort them into different collections. I’ve compiled a list of the 14 greatest collections on deviantArt. The themes vary from typography, advertising to photography. There should be something for everyone. Assuming that each collection contains about 40 designs you’ll get 500+ (no guarantee) inspirational artworks. Enjoy!

I’m totally hooked on deviantArt and today I want to show you my latest discoveries in the Mixed Media/Abstract category. I just love abstract art. Beautiful colours combined with excellent textures and unusual shapes is all I need to get my juices flowing. It’s just so inspiring. Hope you feel the same. 13 of the best artworks presented in this post.
Update: All the pictures are now embedded straight from deviantArt to give proper credit to the artists.
Nelson Balaban is only 19 years old which makes his art that more impressive. This Brazil based graphic designer works as a freelancer under the alias of XTRABOLD. Visit his portfolio for more inspiration.
