Retractable dog snap leash Povodokus

Povodokus sports a gun-shaped handle, which retracts the leash when you need to control your target dog. It's a sure shot! The lead goes out freely as the dog pulls and reels in when you pull the trigger. Link here.

Bec Winnel

' Bec Winnel creates soft and dreamy feminine portraits, dosed with sensuality and emotion. Using a subdued colour palette, they are created by building and blending many delicate and detailed layers of colour pencil, graphite and pastel. ¨Her work has been described as reminiscent of vintage Victorian postcards and¨ like melancholy souls staring out at you through disguised, beautiful faces. Bec works full time as a graphic designer and part time as an exhibiting artist and commercial illustrator. ' (via Illustration Web)

Martin Stranka

Martin Stranka's photographs exist in that space between dreams and waking, those split seconds when a person has a foot in both worlds.

Shoe Lamp

" Lund School of Architecture student Clara Sjodin put some interesting work on display at a recent international furniture convention: shoe lamps. This novel idea is not only functional art, it’s a great way to express your love for kicks and really “shine some light” on your passion to guests. The cloth shoe laces are not only accurately scaled, they are the actual power cords for the bulbs found in each sneaker, which helps keep the lamp’s design very clean. Would you put a pair up in your house? " (via Kick Fiend)

Gabby Nathan

' Gabby's paintings reveal an ambivalent approach to the consuming culture and to the consuming society. Hate, disgust, love, and dependence surface from self portraits accompanied by images of inflatable plastic toys. Her work is a kind of painted autobiography, a complicated relationship with the world of shiny plastic and illusions. She was actually an active participant in this world (as an art director in the TV commercial industry) and the commercial world nurtured and fertilized her emotionally, creatively and financially, but naturally she also loathes and resents the brainwash of capitalism. Disappointment of an empty, hollow, and meaningless world often reflects in her work. Gabby has shown in several group exhibitions, among them at the Urbanix gallery, Haifa Museum of Art and at the Fresh Paint contemporary art fair. ' Website.
