A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO PLASTIC!… (SRC JEANNIE)
These wooden LEGOs by Japanese design studio Mokurukkuare a wonderful alternative to the normal bright plastic pieces– there’s something really textural and tactile about wood that can’t be achieved with the shine of plastic manufacturing.
Recently I’ve been going over this model of a Camero on C4D, trying to improve on lighting and rendering… still in the development stages.
Another fantastic video by Juan Rayos and the Longboard Girls – Endless Roads is a film about freedom. You might ask whats so special about a road trip around Spain and what makes it ‘freedom’ like but when I watched this documentary style film I felt inspired, influenced and kind of jealous by the shooting, music and even the movement whilst skating… its totally ‘dream like’ and I think thats what it is! It transferes the freedom feeling across to the viewer – Love it.
Check out his vimeo page for the rest of the parts and for more cool stuff!
