For quite some time, I’ve been eager to refine the headline to better capture the essence and authenticity of its Japanese roots. My aim was to infuse a more original Japanese aesthetic into the font style, and to incorporate the native pictogram for the word “Bonsai” in the poster’s title. The previous design felt overtly stereotypical and lacked originality.
With this in mind, I dedicated significant time and effort to re-envision and redesign the entire top section of the poster. My approach was deeply rooted in understanding and representing the philosophy and essence of bonsai. To complement this, I also incorporated a curated list that emphasizes the interconnected values between humans and nature, which I believe aptly embodies the true spirit of the Bonsai discipline.

Everything about photography in a single giant poster infographic. It’s the fourth artwork piece for my “Learn with a poster” serie; visual elements are inspired by ’70s newspapers, blueprints and camera manuals, with typographical screen patterns.
A long work of design, driven by a personal and professional passion for photography. As a technical discipline and evolution of artistic expression.
It’s a visual reference to theory and practical tips, with guidelines and personal notes collected during my personal professional experience on the field, scholar tips and notes, courses material, ideas and much more.

Some shortcuts fixes and updates for Blender 3.3! Color input picker tip added
Glad to present a new small but not so small update on the “All the Sailing on a Single Map” poster infographic. Every small update need recomposite lots of elements of the illustration, and it takes time.
Weather section redesigned: wind strength now also shows visually its scale with the windsock rings. Each ring indicates the wind velocity of 5 knots: So in this way 5 fully blown rings correspond approximately to a wind speed of 25 knots. Height of waves, maneuvers, navigation speed in knoths are interconnected and more readable in a linear scheme from left to right.

Reset trasformation connection revidited. Mesh loopcut sub-options added. Mesh context menù and mesh select menù moved to its section. Added skin resize (plugin) shortcut. Tweked and improved some icons and infographics.
I found out something interesting today, and fascinating. Something which witnessed the fact that time pass but design universals returns.
I was contacted by a map collector, hunting for a treasure. He showed me a digital scan of an old lythography poster, from 1850, a map very similar to my work: “LWAP All the sailing in a single map”. It made me jump on the chair: it really looked like someone almost made the same artwork centuries ago.

the knife angle constrain relative to screen or edge direction and the knife measure tool is my favourite update from Blender. Asset browser is finally the best way to organize and storing objects looking to reuse them across projects (waiting for collection id asset compatibility!).

A while ago on the island of Seuraasari, Finland, I met an artist craftsman building ships in the bottles. He asked me if I knew the trick… The answer is quite simple but the final result still smacks of magic and ancient sea legends…

Suzanne in late summer look with glasses is introducing 2.9, with a colorful poster update.
Non manifold extrude is probably the most intriguing modeling update in Blender 2.9. I was waiting it for a long time, since I tried Google SketchUp, and I think it could be the default extruding option. Now it’s included as a tip into the infographic.
