New design is already up and we like its minimal style! It's not the "Spring" one we mentioned in our previous post though. Since love is in the air we wanted to create something refreshing and different for St. Valentine's and beyond.
This is to update and thank all the people who recently bought items from the shop at Cafepress and who continue to read the blog (we are also thrilled to see that people keep visiting the blog even when we go into "hiatus" mode). The good news is that the shop is constantly improving to deliver better designs and products for mosaic and mosaicology customers and followers!
Muse Thalia, new mosaic print
There's a new mosaic print on selected jewelry items. It's Thalia, the muse of comedy and pastoral poetry. Show your sophisticated style by wearing this lovely pic of soft hues.
"Keep calm and put the pieces together" quote's new improved version
The "Keep calm and put the pieces together" design has been improved. It has been enlarged and looks more vibrant and stylish. Same with the other "Keep calm and mosaic on" quotes in pink, blue and green. Please note that all images are at 300dpi high resolution.
Mosaicology is currently working on a new "surprise" design (no quotes) due Spring.
This is a quick post to share an interesting story about Yeggy Michael, a Seattle based mosaic artist who creates public works of art that tell the stories of the community. Read this and this.
Do you have any stories worth telling on Mosaicology? Get in touch with me now at firstname.lastname@example.org. The blog is looking for people who can inspire others with their writing, passionate about mosaic, tiles, fashion and things in between.
I make my digital mosaics by hand. I mean I use the "good old" mouse. However, did you know you can actually use a software to do just that? I am not talking about constructing industrial-style mosaics with straight lines and no real manual-artisan intervention. I am talking about creating artistic mosaics, resembling real ones! Works of art.
The guy behind this software is Simone Aielli and you can find out more about The Mosaic Project right here.
The potential of this software is beyond your wildest mosaic dreams. And that's from someone who loves ancient and Byzantine mosaics.
