i think this is fantastic, we sould encourage this sort of thing much more. ๐Ÿ™‚

When we planted trees (100,000) in Inner Mongolia (China) earlier this with the Japanese organisation, Make The Heaven, we decided to increase everyone’s tree planting activities. So along with Make The Heaven, and the other organisations who participated in Inner Mongolia, we’ve created a new super organisation: The Wonderful World Tree Planting Festival (WWTPF).

If you want to see how he puts some of his images together follow some of the links bellow. In particular i advise that you watch the breakdown of his coca cola image and the dog digging up the bone. These breakdown video’s although not tutorials are helpful as they show the raw methods and style of putting multiple images together.

Navigation for the site is abit awkward but thats probably down to my idiocy- to get to the broken down images go to the R logo on the left hand side of the screen and click on case studies, then just select and play.

here are also some photshop tennis examples i found on the internet, having tried these myself im loving them, encompassing for people with minimal photoshop ability it provides a fun game you can develope to practice skills.

Hanging gardens have become art in Houstonโ€™s Lawndale Art Center. Local artist/designer Ned Dodington transformed a stark white gallery interior into a verdant landscape with 30 hanging eco-pods of Fescue and Ryegrass. How are they watered you ask? Each pod is plugged into its own life supporting IV drip.

La Casa de Botellas, created by the Alfredo Santa Cruz family in Puerto Iguazu, Argentina, was constructed from thousands of PET plastic bottles, and was designed as โ€œa tool for promoting ecological and social responsibility.โ€ The surprisingly sturdy structure features a Tetra pack roof, doors and windows made from CD jewel cases โ€” and the interior boasts beds, coffee tables and couches, all created entirely from used plastic. While no one in the Santa Cruz family is an architect or engineer, they are doing their part to save the planet by providing free home building courses in Latin American countries โ€œto address both trash [issues] and housing scarcity.โ€ย Read more about the elements of design and the construction of La Casa de Botellas at Inhabito.
