Sparkle #163: Travel with the Holiday Magazine

I recently came across some illustrated covers for the Holiday Magazine, and was curious to know more about their content and readership. The Holiday Magazine was first published in the US between 1946 – 1977, and it introduced a new and exciting glamour and lifestyle travel format for it’s readers. What set the magazine apart from it’s contemporaries was it’s strong aesthetic sense, a fun and creative layout, stellar photography and brilliant writing.

Sparkle #100: Magical Art for your Desktops

Have you heard of Vladstudio.com? I stumbled upon Vladstudio almost 5 years ago, when I was looking for quirky and whimsical wallpapers to dress my shiny new Sony Vaio! Vladstudio is an art project of Russian digital artist Vlad Gerasimov – a professional web designer. Sometime in the late 90’s, he started designing desktop and mobile wallpapers in his spare time. His designs swing between the bright and colorful, to the dark and mysterious.
