Manila-based art director/illustrator Patrick Cabral (also known as Dark Gravity) has a very eclectic portfolio. From illustration, to app design, to motion graphics, Cabral brings his a-game to each new project. As strong as all of his work is, we are particularly taken with Cabral’s typography work. It’s sort of refreshing to appreciate hand lettering in this increasingly digital age. And Cabral’s ornate work, complete with flourishes, swashes and filigree is among some of the best we’ve seen. Oh, and Happy New Year!

One sign of a gifted photographer is finding beauty in mundane, everyday subjects. Take popular aquarium “betta” fish (otherwise known as Siamese fighting fish), for example. Sure, they’re lovely domestic pets, but Thai photographer Visarute Angkatavanich captures them in all their beauty and elegance like we’ve never seen before, despite their rather aggressive nature (hence their name). Through Angkatavanich’s lens, they look exotic and mysterious. A commercial photographer by trade, Angkatavanich decided to experiment with shooting these colorful cold-blooded vertebrates a few years ago on a whim. And the results are truly stunning. We love how they appear to be suspended in air, the water they are submerged in not even apparent. It’s like they’re wearing luxurious, flowing gowns.
