So? What's your favourite social medium? Blogger and Tumblr, like me? Or Twitter or Facebook?
No matter what medium fits you best, Italian digital artist Victor Faretina, aka Neko-Vi has designed a gown with your name on it! He got inspired by popular websites like YouTube, Blogger, Tumblr and Facebook and reinterprets their visual aesthetic into evening gowns in his series titled Web in Vogue. Much more over here.
When I think of the words batch, harvest or crops, I'm immediately thrown into my Smurf's Village. But not this time! Yesterday we harvested our first strawberries from our balcony. Red, green and sweet!

Portland-based designer Jim Kazanjian uses thousands of found photographs and digitally pieces to produce these gorgeous manipulated surreal landscapes, without ever physically operating a camera himself. Each piece exists of around 30 of these images.
While Kiamo is the fat one, with the big round eyes which make him look a bit dumb, Komet is his smart brother. Mind of his own, opening doors where his food is, closing doors when I'm in the shower. Big personality! Took this pic of him when he sneaked into the bathtub. Cute!
They did it again! Die Antwoord released their new video and again it's jaw-dropping, mouth-watering and mind-blowing. Baby's On Fire is another killer track and the video a feast on the eyes. Watch it in HD and on full screen and enjoy these creative images!
This beauty found a new home. Close to where we found our home. So this season we're gonna be neighbours. Good thing I have no fear of spiders. Good thing I don't live in Australia. Good thing Dutch spiders never grow that big.

When I think about people having a fish as a pet I always imagine it like the image above. A fish in a bowl.
But I just discovered a whole new subculture called Aquascaping. People building tiny landscapes in fishtanks. And they look amazing! Mountains, trees, rivers and even waterfalls. All illusion, but very well done. Now I want a fish as well. And an Aquascape.

Photographer Michal Korta spent three days in the Tatra Mountains region of Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic and followed a group of shephards with their sheep and dogs. He captured the way they herd their herd and how they make Oscypek cheese from the milk. The same way their ancestors made cheese from the milk since the 15th century. Stunning portraits that were published by Boston's Big Picture.
