The concept of mortal sin is a corruption of the soul and in Alexey’s allusory series sin is expressed in the corrosion of the pure geometric form; a slight deformity that poisons the entire picture. You can purchase Lust (and only Lust because let’s be honest, that’s definitely the most desirable of all the sins) in a high quality giclee print over at the bigcartel.
An Earth-inspired typeface designed by Siyu Cao that creates shapes and letters from classic typographic map features. The two-dimensional forms are great, but the 3-D carvings really drive it to the mountaintop.
I’ve seen a lot of Earth as Art projects, but never a typeface. Excellent work.
In the spirit of openheartedness and what life is really all about, I’ll go so far as to say that the fear of others may mask some deep-seated desire to understand, and maybe even to love. Because really, what is there to be afraid of? Few people today don’t know—or have in their families—at least one loving couple who are raising children, same-sex or not. And it’s really just the loving part that matters. That same-sex marriage could go from its preliminary draft of “diagnosable” to the final edit of “so what?” must indicate some positive evolution on the part of the larger human consciousness. My wife, being a biology teacher, puts it even more succinctly: “Why are all these people so worried about who everybody else is sleeping with, anyway?” (Score two for Moms.)
