I just fell in love with the work of New York based artist Thomas Doyle (thanks enna). His miniatures remind me of my earliest fascination of building miniature houses and landscapes. But Thomas Doyle goes one step further and brings his own bizarre fantasies and thoughts to life in these beautiful and sometimes pitch-black still lives. Definately worth checking out his portfolio with lots of other work.

Whoohoo! This will probably become the third Playboy I am going to buy in my life! Marge Simpson graces the cover of the November issue of Playboy. Finally a woman who can handle nudity with a kind of dignity you don't see often anymore. D'oh!

The Book about Swiss Cheese Makers began as an editorial project for a journalist friend. " I expected this to be an agricultural trip, meeting people who make a living through the production of cheese in a more or less industrial way, " Scheffold confesses. "But fare from it: I met unorthodox lateral thinkers, visionary fellows, modest canny and successful people living and working in some of the most spectacular landscapes of Switzerland. Some sell their products abroad, inventing a new cheese every other month, some work exactly as they have learned from their fathers, now sometimes just selling to hikers visiting their remote location by chance. But all of them seemed to follow an individual vision they are not willing to betray for growth and money". (source)
