5ft10™ 1/26/07 Description: photos, living in London (Flash) Comments: Paul Richardson, originally from New Zealand, arrived in London just about a year ago and the site presents a dozen photoseries done since then. His most recent views from walking home is a series of night shots along the Thames – very nice! I also enjoyed his shots of some rather well-known faces, taken in a famous wax museum. There's also several series taken in Paris, plus a bonus link today, Paul's old web playground from back home with even more cool photos... [Newstoday® PBS]
Sketzh.com 10/15/05 Description: "mini-graff the movie" and other graffiti/murals Comments: "Nerdish but cool!" said armed rob in a post at Newstoday® – indeed. If you wanna tag a slew of trains without having to deal with local anti-graffiti forces and other such nasty business, mini-graff may be your answer. That's what Sketch is doing and I think it's great. The site's other content tells me Sketch has been out there on the streets doing waycool graffiti and murals for a long time too...
XPMNTS 11/7/04 Description: a collection of experimental works (Flash) Comments:"I've basically just uploaded the files and stuck an indulgent interface on the front..." says the site's creator – "some of it bad and some of it ok." What was once just a folder full of experimental work on What's hard drive is now an online collection of Flash works, static art, and photographs. All pretty effin' cool, in my opinion anyway...

Newstoday® 12/8/03 Description: design broadcasting network – for a better tomorrow Comments: This one's long overdue. Over the last 2 years, I've reviewed 20 sites found there and it dawned on me over the weekend that I'd failed to add it to the listings. Today's pick provides a "people's voice platform, public broadcasting system." From what I can see, most of the registered members of the "Alliance Network" are designers, and it's easy to join. Besides the public broadcast, there's also a news column featuring posts by a "selected team of broadcasters" plus a public discussion area. The posts are frequent and on any day, you'll find a fresh supply of links to great design sites and other odd and amusing destinations. A truly great alternative portal, powered by people...
bwoup.com 11/4/03 Description: the art of Morgan aka. "Splif" Thomas Comments: Splif's "very own homepage and portfolio" has an odd name. The word for "the language of the clouds" is also the name of the red airship that greets you on the splash and main pages. Not surprising that the navigation rests on the belly of Splif's big orange balloon. The "artwork" section includes the "junkyard" of sketches and fast drawings, "inkings," both rough and monocromatic, and colorful hand-drawn illustrations – dozens of each. There's 7 other sub-sections/pages including 3D work and cool doodles. If you're a designer or graphic artist, you'll probably enjoy the "themas" section. The nav-balloon leads to other stuff too. Impressive site design and works... (renders best in IE) [finelayout.com < Newstoday®]
cyberheadz 10/21/03 Description: base illustrations and sculptures (Flash) Comments: Today's pick features the works of Swiss illustrator/sculptor Maurice Xarramo. In addition to photosets of various finished casts, there's also a section with shots of a number of unfinished sculptures still in progress. Another section contains sketches plus photos of the artist at work in his studio. For Maurice, the art is all in the headz and his work is fascinating... [Newstoday®]
GroupC 10/3/01 Description: installations exploring experimental interaction with images, reactive electromechanical sculpture, high resolution digital prints, and screen-based interactive software Comments: Today's pick features the work of Casey Reas, a recent Masters graduate of the MIT Media Laboratory, Aesthetics & Computation Group. His major was Media Arts and Sciences and his work is highly academic on one hand, while simply visually pleasing on the other hand. His installations have been exhibited at a number of places, both offline and online – some of his most recent stuff is currently featured at singlecell, which just happens to have been a daily pick back in July. Simple machines, living organisms, biological systems, synthetic neural systems, behavior, and movement are the types of things that Casey looks into rather deeply – great colorful graphics, showing interesting variations in form and space are what I see, pure and simple. Art and science seem perfectly combined in Casey's unique studies of media... [Newstoday®]
