August 28th, 2014 by Dovilas | No Comments | Filed in Design

Talented artist Karla Mialynne isn’t content with simply sharing her stunning hyper-realistic art with her 44,000 Instagram followers – she posts these mixed-media images together with the artistic utensils she used to create these pieces, as if to prove that these are indeed drawings and not photographs.

The utensils, which include pencils, markers and acrylic paints, also show the beautiful rich color palette that Mialynne uses in each of her pictures.

Artist Draws Terrifying Monsters On Sticky Notes

August 22nd, 2014 by Dovilas | No Comments | Filed in Design

Danish artist John Kenn Mortensen (who goes by Don Kenn on Tumblr and other sites) taps into the terror of our childhood nightmares with brilliant and terrifying monster drawings that he does on sticky notes.

The round and fuzzy forms of Mortensen’s illustrations make them seem like they could come from an innocuous children’s book, but the characters in his pictures are undeniably dark and terrifying.

If you like his work, be sure to check out his sticky-note monster book!

Palestinians Turn Smoke From Israeli Rocket Strikes Into Powerful Images

July 28th, 2014 by Dovilas | No Comments | Filed in Design

The conflict between Israel and Palestine has recently been escalated, but many supporters of both sides can agree that any innocent civilian lives lost during the conflict are a tragedy. Several Palestinians have found their own way to grieve for the dead and to cope their strong emotions about the conflict – by drawing images that they see in the smoke rising from the sites of Israeli rocket strikes.

The images that they see in these violent clouds of smoke are shaped by their experience in Palestine – they are full of imagery usually associated with rebellion, resistance and grief. We can only hope that the current violent confrontation between Israel and Palestine comes to an end as soon as possible, for the good of innocent civilians on both sides.

Letters Leap Off The Page In 3D Calligraphy By Tolga Girgin

July 23rd, 2014 by Dovilas | No Comments | Filed in Design

Although calligraphy is an ancient art form, it will probably remain relevant for as long as humans continue to communicate with written language. This 3D calligraphy art by Tolga Girgin, an electrical engineer and graphic designer in Turkey, is an excellent example of how this ancient art continues to evolve even today.

Girgin’s graceful letters seem to peel or tear off of the page owing to his skillful and clever shading. Their flowing forms and bright coloration serve to make them even more eye-catching.

Artist Leaves Cute Motivational Sticky Notes On The Train

July 15th, 2014 by Dovilas | No Comments | Filed in Design

October Jones (real name Joe Butcher), the prolific writer and illustrator behind gems like Texts From Dog and these commuter sticky-note doodles, is at it again with a fun series of sticky notes featuring a grimly determined cat named Peppy posing next to motivational messages. He draws them and leaves them in the trays of the train he takes for unsuspecting fellow commuters.

If you’re having a case of the Mondays (or of any other day of your work week, for that matter), these images are perfect for getting inspired and pepped up!

Artist Recreates His Own Childhood Drawings 20+ Years Later

July 14th, 2014 by Julija | No Comments | Filed in Design

Some time ago we wrote about Vancouver-based artist Wendy Tsao, who turns children’s drawings into toys. Telmo Pieper, a Dutch muralist, does a very similar thing: with the help of Photoshop, he digitally recreates his old drawings into realistic versions of his childhood imagination. The Kiddie Arts series features some of the weirdest-looking animals – a shoe-shaped whale, a snail with world’s smallest shell, and an alien looking fly – a great collection of typical boy-ish drawings.

Pieper drew the original images when he was only 4 years old which shows how greatly his painting skills have evolved. Now he works in an artistic muralist duo “Telmo Miel” in Rotterdam and draws on daily basis – a childhood dream came true!

  • About us

    It was in the back corner of McDonalds with a couple of hours to wait for a train home to Norwich, that theDot first came together. Freshly inspired by a weekend at the 4designers conference in London and having traipsed around museums and exhibitions all day, three minds came together over chicken burgers and chips.

    The three are currently studying Graphic Communication at Norwich University College of the Arts, where they delve into advertising, corporate branding, design for publishing, photography, illustration and so on. All confident in their skills, but continuing on their learning journey.

    We are a new design group hoping to achieve great things

    Meet some of our friends.
