Apparently, Letter Playground has been around for a while, but it is certainly new to me (I lack the superpower of overseeing every corner of the internet, evidently). It’s a delightful website / forum for “everyday joes” and designers and illustrators to show off their hand-drawn (although I see some computer aided type in there also) letters and alphabet creations. Lots of great inspiration from tons of talented people.

The extremely talented Portland, Oregon based duo of Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols, aka Jolby (get it?), have relaunched their online portfolio. Full of lots of new fantastic illustrations and designs, maybe unaware to you, but Jolby has probably been involved with a lot of work that you interact with everyday, like Pitchfork, Urban Outfitters, Garmin and T-Mobile, just to name a few.

The talented Canadian artist and illustrator Ray Fenwick has just updated his online portfolio to include lots more awesome projects. Be sure to check out his “Comics” and “Books” sections, both are filled with really amazing work.

Tom Edwards is a recent graduate of Illustration from Brighton Academy in the UK. His work, collages, doodles, journals, conceptual pieces, all exude a unique style and perspective and innate sense of balance and composition. I was initially drawn to his Landscapes series, but ended up enjoying many more of his projects.

These rudimentary doodles are my first experiments with Harmony, developed my Mr. Doob. For all intents and purposes it is basically a web-based illustration app that allows you to create all kinds of drawings that you can then save out. The brushes and filters remind me of architecture CAD tools, creating webbing and textures that feel like structure renderings.
