The ark project.

Dear friends,

Lately I've been incredibly bored with the internet. I feel like I'm going to the same sites and seeing all the same things and for some reason can't come across anything fresh. One ray of sunshine into this desert of boredom is the ark project. I stumbled across it earlier this week and wished I had heard about it with enough time to submit something. I have a weakness for illustration... compilations? The only other word I can think of is annuals, but that doesn't work. Someday I'll get those Gestalten Illusive books (1, 2 & 3) off my wishlist and now I find that I've got to add another book to that wishlist. The book contains submissions from illustrators across the world of animals indigenous to where they live, so you end up with a book full of what must be at least one of every kind of animal. Now, while the website doesn't feature any pictures aside from the book cover, it does have a list of all the participating illustrators with links to their individual websites. I can't guarantee all of them will be golden, but there will be enough jewels in there to make it worth your while, including one of my all-time favorite illustrators, Mads Berg.
