Inside-Out Bears


Here's what Kent Rogowski has to say about his inside out bears.
Bears, is a series of portraits of the most unusual sort: ordinary teddy bears that have been turned inside out and restuffed. Each animal’s appearance is determined by the necessities of the manufacturing process. Simple patterns and devices never meant to be seen are now prominent physical characteristics, giving each one a distinctly quirky personality: their fasteners become eyes, their seams become scars, and their stuffing creeps out in the most unexpected places. Together these images form a topology of strange yet oddly familiar creatures. They are at once hideous yet cuddly, disturbing yet endearing, absurd yet adorable, while offering a metaphor for us all to consider. These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all. It is by virtue of revealing their inner core might we better understand our own.

Wish Upon the Shooting Stars... by The Children At Risk Foundation (flickr).

You can purchase prints of this photo through flickr, but the artist asks that you make a contribution of any amount you feel fitting towards The Children At Risk Foundation's work with street and other children at risk in Brazil. Donations can be made through Paypal on their Changemakers Campaign Page.

Not a bad idea. Buy a print, support a cause.

Business Card Inspiration


I've seen a lot of business card roundups floating around the blogosphere. This one has quite a few cards I have not seen before.


I prefer to look at books instead of the screen when sketching business card concepts. One of my favorites is The Best of Business Card Design 6. There is a Best of Business Card Design 7, but I have not seen it in person, so I don't feel as comfortable recommending it.

Another favorite is 1,000 Graphic Elements: Details for Distinctive Designs. This one has little info about each project and it forces me to focus on materials and techniques while coming up with an original concept.
