Previously, I’ve featured the talented illustrator in St. Paul, Teagan White. Since then, she has posted more intricate renderings of flora and fauna, cute anthropomorphic critters, illustrative typography, and everything in between. Teagan begins each piece with an inky drawing and then digitizes them to add her harmonious color schemes. Check out her website, here, to see more of her incredible art! And for a wonderful treat, check out her Society6 page to purchase prints.

Architectural design studio, Stickyline, based in Hong Kong, created a series of paper helmets shaped as iconic buildings from their famous skyline. The team selected the Cultural Center, Space Museum, International Finance Center, HSBC Headquarters and the Convention and Exhibition Center for this amazing project. By folding bright paper into building-shaped hats for their series entitled, “Masked Creature”, the Stickyline team hoped to showcase the harmonic connection between the people and the buildings. The helmets were made as part of the deTour 2011 design event. As they introduce the familiar structures with a new perspective, the Stickyline team certainly give us a new understanding of the beautiful city.
