Earlier this year I worked on some concepts for exotic fruit flavours for a beverage label design. The concepts never saw the light of day, but I can share my favourite one here: Maracuja! (a South-American type of passion-fruit).

Globules in IC 2944 by Fred Vanderhaven

The above pictured emission nebula, cataloged as IC 2944, is called the Running Chicken Nebula for the shape of its greater appearance.
The image was taken recently from Siding Spring Observatory in Australia and presented in scientifically assigned colors. Seen near the center of the image are small, dark molecular clouds rich in obscuring cosmic dust.
Called Thackeray’s Globules for their discoverer, these “eggs” are potential sites for the gravitational condensation of new stars, although their fates are uncertain as they are also being rapidly eroded away by the intense radiation from nearby young stars.
Together with patchy glowing gas and complex regions of reflecting dust, these massive and energetic stars form the open cluster Collinder 249. This gorgeous skyscape spans about 70 light-years at the nebula’s estimated 6,000 light-year distance.

Just discovered these fantastic textiles by Sally England.
"Sally England is a fibers artist specializing in her own distinct style of modern macramé. Driven by her reverence for the craft process along with the intimacy of using her hands as a tool, Sally&#8217;s macramé work brings new regard to an age-old technique steeped in nostalgia.  As a second generation artist and knotter, Sally grew up in the Michigan countryside surrounded by magical forests, fields, and lakes. Her kinship with the outdoors has translated into her affection for using natural materials and creating textural work with the goal of bringing solace to interior environments."
