Joshua Davis

18Dec06

I managed to catch the second half of Joshua Davis’s Masterclass last Friday. During his open and witty presentation he explained how he uses and selects colour in his artwork (inspired by nature) and how he automates the process of generating endless combinations of colour in his artwork. He certainly opened up my eyes and world to his work, particularly how traditional artwork can be combined with technology.

Sauna typeface

18Dec06

I was asked to make a presentation of a typeface of my choice. I presented background information about the typeface Sauna and explained why I choose it, why I liked it and compared it with Cooper Black explaining why I think it is better. The Cooper Black typeface video is fun to watch, and informative. Sauna is the younger brother and a contemporary version of the classic Cooper Black typeface.

Here’s a copy of my presentation and a preview of what’s to come. Watch this space for my book about my chosen typeface “Sauna”.

A big up to Akiem at Underware for agreeing to sponsor me with the use of this wonderfully inspiring typeface.

I can’t seem to get enough of this lovely piece of animated beauty. Check it out yourself and be enriched, be seduced and be happy because of it [link].


This stop motion animation just goes to show that by using few materials you can come up with the most wonderful results. It must’ve been hard not being able to see the end result and have taken endless hours and hours. The accompanying retro music is not too bad either.


An excellent way to kill time if you find yourself bored, and have fun while doing it. Check out this flash-based game (called DR3I) by Mach Parat in Germany [link].

For me it conjures up vague memories of the game I sparsely played in my younger years, “Operation” where you would carefully lift out metal body parts from a person’s body, as carefully as one can, without touching the sides.operation game image
