The 'other artists that are so good I hate them' post

fable1
fable3

It's no surprise that recently I've been playing Fable 3 (a lot...) but I have more reasons for playing than it's an extraordinary game. Asides the fact that the story sucks you in (I've always wanted to play a hero), or the characters are absolutely fun (Reaver, Ben Finn) most of all is the artwork. The incredible back drops of this incredible world (i'm running out of adjectives to describe the world of Fable). Not just the third game but all of them. I was super happy to find one of the concept artists blog online. You can too - his name is Mike McCarthy and here are some of his pieces. You will find fantastic people, places and creatures of the Fable world. Damn, I hate him..

A pop-up (in?) book from the 1851 Crystal Palace from this fantastic website movable book collection. One awesome website full of amazing ephemera (mostly vintage and antique pop-up books).

Apologies

Life as usual - you get super busy and forget you have a blog to update. This here is a possible project for a magazine I like to call 'Time Flies'. The theme is 'things that fit into a jar'. I have a couple more ideas but I have to go through my stamp collection to see what I have. Stamps being part of the theme as well.
