The Dreamstime Challenge on

posted on 14th of april, 2010 announced a new design challenge based on Dreamstime images. Their monthly theme is a spiral motif.

"Whether found in nature, crafted by the human hand or generated by mathematics, the spiral has long been a potent graphical element for artists and designers, across the globe and down through the ages. And, of course, by mere coincidence it just happens to be part of the Dreamstime logo," says

Entries for the challenge of month will need to use at least part of one of the six Dreamstime images.

This looks like lots of fun and something designers could use in their work. But the timing is a little weird for me. I was up until 4 a.m. working of spirals and fractals. The whole world is spinning right now. LOL Great entries so far. Thanks for letting us know about this.

Being Childish

posted on 16th of april, 2010

Are you afraid of being childish? That's the worst name you would want to hear somebody calling you with, when you are in your teens. But later... I guess you don't care so much.

I wanted to tell you a story about one of my images. That's the one with rainbow. A little red cat is missing there. It should sit right under the rainbow. :) I couldn't recreate it. But that was the memorable drawing from my kindergarten days. I painted it during my drawing lesson with gouache colors. I was so proud, when I draw it. Other kids were admiring my work and I thought: "Hmm... maybe I'm an artist..."

Now when I learned to use Illustrator, I wanted to recreate my childhood image. I had serious doubts, when I uploaded it on stock sites. Cause at that time there wasn't many illustrations or cartoons...

Wow, I nearly missed this blog. Thanks Mailis :) Rainbows and garden forts, long grass to hide and play in, wooded swampy areas full of mossies, creepy and fun. Tree climbing, mud pie making and sandpit playing. Lying on my stomach on a swing and pretending the grass was the tops of trees and I was flying. So many things I enjoy doing, I mean did enjoy doing ;P :)))))) Well, I'm off out to play again, I mean work :D
