Nendo - Bird Apartment : Tree House surface and surfaceA Tree house that’s for the Birds by Japanese design studio Nendo. The tree house is located in  a forest in Komoro City in Japan’s mountainous Nagano Prefecture and contains 78 separate spaces for birds to nest while providing accommodation for the ornithological enthusiast to have an auld snoop. There’s a mammoth amount of great furniture and product design from Nendo on their site but do check out the exhibition they did with Philips de Pury in the Saatchi Gallery, London in 2011 entitled ‘Think Black Lines’.

Ryan Andrews - Nothing is Forgotten - Surface and SurfaceThe very talented Ryan Andrews is running a Kickstarter to raise funds for publishing a collection of his illustrated short stories ‘Nothing is Forgotten‘, ‘Sarah and the Seed‘ and ‘Our Blood Stained Roof‘. The images of the book look amazing; with its French Folds and Sewn Binding. I’m really looking forward to getting mine in the post.  Ryan has already reached his target amount but if you’re looking to pick up an original drawing or print this is a good way of going about it.  You can find our previous post about Ryan Andrews here.

Great  illustrations from California and Japan based Artist Ryan Andrews.  Ryan Andrews works with ink, watercolour and a bit of Photoshop to create his dark and moody comics and illustrations.

Ryan has a very insightful entry in his blog about the process he uses to create his work here. I really recommend that you check out his comics / graphic silent short-stories Nothing is Forgotten and his new story Sarah and the Seed’. You can find even more work on Ryan’s blog.

Cheers to Feargal for showing me Ryan’s work.
