This beast was built by Monaco based yacht maker Wally Construct in conjunction with Paris-based high-fashion luxury brand Hermes. With comfort in mind, this unique hull apparently tested incredibly well, showing very little movement in full swell. The designers also integrated a number of environmentally friendly features, including 900 square feet of solar paneling that feeds energy into its diesel electric engine. You can read and see more at WHY Yachts.

A classic project from Naoto. The set also included a kiwi and strawberry version, all really great stuff.
A beautiful video done by Danish painter-turned-director for IKEA. They must have footed a pretty serious travel bill, shots from all over the world. You can watch it, along with some of his other work here.

All the illustrators aren’t Canadian, but the money raised will be going to our underprivileged kids (in the form of free skateboards). The tour started in Van and finishes in Quebec. It’s in Toronto at Livestock on the 25-27th. More images after the jump…
Some good looking illustration and design work on the pre-release of Cargo Collective. It’s striving to establish an online community to “dramatically increase the accessibility and exposure of creative individuals on the Internet, while aspiring to build a networked context that will contribute to the culture as a whole”. Above is the cover of Australian Creative, done by ‘Nice To Meet You‘.
A well known artist from the UK, Stezaker works with iconic images found in books, magazines, and postcards. He builds collages from them, creating interesting relationships between the overlapping photographs. You can see more of his work on ‘The Approach’ gallery website.
Born in the UK, he’s shown all over the world. Above is a grab from one of his sites, lots of mayham worth checking out. He’s represented by Breed (some other artists/designers worth checking out on there too).
Some great looking work and an awesome site from HelloVon, a studio set up by London based illustrator and artist Von. He does a great job of mixing realistic drawings and handwork into design. Check the site here. Reminds me of Si Scott.
