Kerby Rosanes: Doodle Animal Kingdom

Dear friends, I shall leave you for the weekend with these amazing doodles by Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes. He draws these detailed doodles with intricate and complex patterns using Uni Pin drawing pens on an ordinary moleskine. Each doodle is intriguing and even more fascinating when looked upon closely. Visit his website Sketchy Stories to view more of his work.

Owl Bedding in Mint

Mint green has been all the rage lately. The internet is over flowing with mint colored home decor and I have to agree the color does look elegant, airy and fresh. I'm swooning over this owl bedding collection by Home Republic. I like how the combo of mint with black and cream doesn't make the color too overwhelming.

Marcelo Gallegos: Surreal Creatures

Marcelo Gallegos is an artist from New Mexico who attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently living in Manhattan's Lower East Side. He drew a series of fascinating, surreal animals and robotic birds that seem from a whole different universe.

Artist's statement: "I'm very interested in the intersection between the natural world and the man made. Very interested in how the world adapts to us, and how we adapt to the world. A sort of fear I have of technology, I guess. I love it and I embrace it but at the same time it’s a little scary sometimes."
