mediumaevum:

This Book of Hours has the most peculiar shape: its pages resemble lily leaves (the yellow background is a paper sheet used for contrast).

It was made for king Henry II of France, who used it for private devotion – the Book of Hours contained prayers and other short texts, which were read at set times during the day.

The Bathhouse
Spirited Away Redesign: 10 years later

Painting for my redesign series I did of Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece. This shot is Chihiro looking over at the spirit world. The train lines have moved from the ocean up to the island instead; and the bathhouse has expanded and become so industrialised it’s become a factory for its clients now.

Tim Knowles - Tree Drawings (2006)

Artist’s statement:

“A series of drawings produced using drawing implements attached to the tips of tree branches, the wind’s effects on the tree, recorded on paper. 

Like signatures each drawing reveals the different qualities and characteristics of each tree.”

This is so fucking amazing.
