Bury Something Precious.

- 'Brideshead Revisited', Evelyn Waugh, 1945.

Cuenca Rasmussen’s sculptures construct a poetic and at the same time pointed criticism of this relationship between object and beholder/consumer. The mirror surfaces of the mannequins turn our gaze back onto ourselves, forcing us to become aware of our own bodies and consumption habits. This way revealed, we can see ourselves as part of a much larger system, as complex and chaotic as ever the sculptures’ reflections on the walls.” - Christian Larsen website.

Given their glitzy exterior, you could be forgiven for thinking these mannequins command attention and flattery and nothing else. But upon closer inspection, I think they also convey the gentle nature of femininity far more accurately than it might first appear.

Sean McCabe’s hand lettering work is absolutely faultless - his portfolio boasts a wide range of typographic styles, each one better than the last. He says of his work, "I have a passion for hand lettering and typography as well as a love for meticulous detail that emanates from everything I create. My work expresses an attentive eye for precision, balance and composition, and uses subtle intricacies to produce smart cohesion." 
See more of his brilliant work here, get some tips from Sean himself here, or buy something awesome here.

I’m completely in love with Roman Muradov’s illustration style, and the above Yellow Zine #1 should explain why. To see more of his brilliant work, and become similarly enamoured yourself, head over to Roman’s inPRNT gallery.

Seen first over on the blog Drawn, and drawn for The New Yorker, these ballet illustrations by Angie Wang are really rather delightful. See more of her work here, and explore her Tumblr here.

This leather ‘Opera’ laptop case from Estime is breathtakingly good looking, no? Available exclusively at Selfridges in London.

I have long loved Lovely Package, and the collection of designs that they have curated. The above was designed by an American student, Amy Dick, for the Bourbon company ‘Dapper’.

"Dapper is a small batch bourbon company that combines vintage with modern. It is for the contemporary gentleman. The whiskey should not only be suited for a gentleman but the packaging should also accessorize the modern gentleman. The name Dapper was influenced by the slang word used in 1920′s. The labels were created with an elegant touch of linen textured paper and the use of metallic lettering." - Lovely Package.

'The Last Resort' [part of the recent exhibition 'Concrete Ocean’] is another of Slinkachu’s great miniature scenes, impeccably set up and photographed. You can much more of his ‘Little People Project’ work here, or peruse his blog here.

Sara Wood’s online design and illustration portfolio is truly second-to-none. Each of her pieces [whether it be a book cover/poster/drawing] are engaging, and brilliantly executed. I suggest that you go visit it, and browse.
