Ron’s Instagram looks pretty damn cool
This week I had a chance to ask my friend Ron, graphic artist, designer and overall really nice guy a few questions about his new creative project.
Every (work) day, since February 3rd Ron drew a fictional character portrait on an empty container from his daily caffeine fix. He posts the results of on his Instagram account, Twitter and, if you know him personally - Facebook. By now I fully expect it, it is my reminder that I need to get my coffee too and start doing something with my life. And as I do just that I reminisce about the old friends from sci-fi and comics that I worshiped as a kid, staring at me from the empty paper cup half way across the world.

During the past twenty years I have seen a huge influx of “green" products and practices - which is really good, considering the state of our environment.

Nothing is in black and white, despite what some labels might tell you.
In this article I will be talking about the basics of sustainability when it comes to print products - whether its art, photography, gicleeé or whatever.Read more
Printing has come a long way since 1041. Nowadays we can order our images to be printed on pretty much whatever we want: from TP to 7-storey building walls. We can even 3D print that we can print our print on - but who would want that?
In this article I will be going over some standard (quality) options. No metal prints, no vinyl stickers, no wood burning - just digital images on paper or canvas - to be specific.Read more
