New Free Script Fonts With Multiple Glyph Styles – Part 2

Elegant, versatile, and overly popular as script fonts are, there weren’t enough occasions for me to use them in my design work. Most of my projects required a clean-cut look and simplicity of sans-serif fonts. So as my personal side project, I came up with a script fonts’ reference file and made it a habit to keep it constantly updated. Just simply sifting through it gets me into a creative mood.

These Hyperrealistic Human Sculptures by Ron Mueck Make You Feel More Alive


Ron Mueck's hyperrealistic human sculptures make you feel as if you are invading someone else's intimate moments. Some of them are deliberately disconcerting, but looking at them makes you feel more alive and self-aware.

Ron Mueck is an Australian artist that shifted his focus from the film production to the fine arts. His sculptures illustrate the artist’s attempt to portray the cycle of life, from infancy to the different stages of adulthood.

An internal moment of affection between the two. The interdependent poses of the figures emphasize the strength and complexity of partnerships built over time. Every sign of aging underlines the fullness of the life.

Man in Blankets
2000
From a distance, this sculpture may seem to portray a small infant wrapped in blankets. Up close, however, the figure within is revealed to be an adult man, rendered at a much reduced scale, reminding us of the inevitable cycle of life and death, and the need of comfort in the face of this awareness.

Still Life

Mueck renders his subject with unflinching realism, capturing the distinct texture of plucked and slashed skin, as well as the pull of gravity and the absence of life. The viewer knows its superiority and is humbled.

Man in a Boat 
2002
The man, stripped bare, is traveling from the physical world into the unknown. Like all of us, he launched into the sea of life without a map to navigate through.

Crouching Boy in Mirror
1999-2002

Crouching Boy in Mirror shows Mueck's continuing fascination with adolescence, as well as with the self-consciousness that comes with the growing awareness of sexuality and identity.
