After exploring ways in which she can make use of old, discarded books, British artist Kerry Miller experimented with dissecting and rebuilding them to produce unique artworks. Layering to create a 3D effect, She utilises only the illustrations and the shell of the book, while removing the written word.

These carved 3D books provide tantalising glimpses into a rich past, becoming miniature worlds that allow you to simply tumble into them. As technology threatens to replace the printed word, there has never been a better time to reimagine the book. (via)

Andrea Berretta’s design work is just so happy. Even the weird serpent/monster creatures look like something I would want to play charades with. His energetic, hand-drawn type gives his work an inviting atmosphere. Like, after seeing this, I’m totally ready for happy hour.

As an arts blogger I spend most of my day looking at amazing things created by artists, performers and creatives. If you’re reading
Beautiful/Decay, a good portion of your time is likely also spent in awe of the creative output of others. I decided to make a move to the other side of the screen, rolled up my sleeves and learned to create something awesome. I joined forces with Skillshare, an online learning community that provides access to over 15,000 creative classes, to help accelerate my creative inspiration. Whether you’re looking to learn graphic design, illustration, photography or practically anything else, Skillshare can teach you what you need to know to execute your vision. Even better, they’re offering Beautiful/Decay readers two free months of Skillshare Premium (usually it’s $10 per month). Visit this link to redeem the promo or use the promo code BEAUTIFULDECAY..

Dieter Van Der Ougstraete’s Agressive Humor!

Illustrator, Dieter Van der Ougstraete’s world of aggressive and grotesque humor is also equally charming in his use of color, and characterizations. I wonder if he could get away with putting the above illustration on his business cards and get away with it?
