Artist gives life to stories through cute illustrations

Home is Homeless by Hava Nissimov, Poems for Amalia by Dafna Ben Zvi, and Wings by Gogo and Sunshine are just some of the books that illustrator Ofra Amit made artwork for. While she mostly works side by side with these books' authors, there are occasions she has to work alone - especially for classic literature. One example of this is The Gift of the Magi where the author, O. Henry, has already passed away. This Tel Aviv-based artist studied Architecture but eventually graduated in Visual Communication in Wizo Academy of Design in Haifa, Israel. She worked as an animator for a while before becoming an illustrator. She mainly uses acrylic on paper or board. She currently teaches illustration and once in a while lectures about her work in design schools. For more information about this artist, visit her website and Facebook. Some of her works are available for sale on Etsy.  ...

This baker makes cakes that you just couldn’t bear to slice

Emma Jayne Morris, 46, is a British cake designer based in Aberdare, South Wales who creates amazing life-like, animal-shaped cakes. Although she has made a lot of other designs, her dog-shaped works became the most popular because of its insanely realistic appearance. Emma runs a cake design business and would usually get unusual requests from clients like cakes in the shape of a bag, shirt, vinyl record player, house, yacht, hotdog sandwich, and shoes, among others. Emma uses vanilla sponge and fondant icing to create these adorable designs. She makes her dog-shaped cake based on photographs of actual dogs. The most challenging part for her is sculpting the sponge to its complicated shape but once she starts decorating and adding details, the process becomes fun for her. Emma started baking 6 years ago and since then, the passion has grown for making even more incredible ones in the future. For more of this artist's works, visit her website and Facebook page. ...

Yvette Lising is a freelance visual artist based in Manila. She graduated with a degree in Fine Arts with a major in Advertising. At a young age, drawing and painting portraits became just a few of her favorite past times.

While they easily served as her influence growing up, it's interesting to know that she also draws inspiration from video games, movies, and everyday adventures. Today, Yvette is busy juggling between freelance jobs as a graphic artist for local businesses and her recently-launched illustrated stationery business TypeScratch.

‘Cats in the Mail’ has you sending postcards with cat stamps to Belgium

Cats have not only taken over the Internet, but they're about to invade your mail, too!

Collaboration proves that hand-painted mail gives a more personal touch to getting holiday cards

Wouldn't it be amazing to go back to the time when everything was made by hand? Handwritten and sealed letters say so much more about a person's emotion and sentimentality than a text message or an email. Fortunately, we are here to know that all of this old school style isn't completely lost. Lucy Halcomb is a Brooklyn-based artist who specializes in hand-painting her crafts. Her latest projects include customized, hand-painted mail in the form of greeting cards. She sent this to her friend, Nimrat Brar, who happens to be an art director. But instead of simply saying thanks and appreciating the cards, Nimrat returned the favor and "realized" some of the mail. She even responded with a hand-painted letter of her own. Below are some of these hand-painted mail from the collaborators - but you can also check out Lucy's Instagram account for more of her amazing art. ...

Popular artist draws Pokemon wearing costumes of other Pokemon

An artist who goes by the screen name It's Birdy has made drawings worth taking a second look at. These sketches go back to 2013, but since we are all pretty much in a huge Pokemon craze these days, it won't hurt to see these nice little pieces of art. The concept is simple - it's Pokemon dressed as other Pokemon. It's as if you're going to attend a cosplay event if you were a Pokemon going with other Pokemon. Is it too much Pokemon? That would be a judgment call. After all, most of us can't get enough Pokemon.  In the following images, you'll see baby (unevolved) Pokemon dressed up as their older (evolved) selves, i.e. Bulbasaur dressed as Venosaur, Squirtle dressed as Blastoise, and so on. It's a shame there aren't more of these pictures in the circulation these days. Fans would surely love to have them on apparel while playing Pokemon GO! See more of It's Birdy's works on Instagram or on this slideshow. ...
