Stephen Kelleher   |   http://stephenkelleher.com

I’m Stephen - an Irish-born Brooklyn-based designer, illustrator & art director. For the last 10 years I’ve been bullying shapes and colors, collaborating with some amazing talents and generally enjoying the ride. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to receive recognition and several accolades for my work but being named an ADC Young Gun in 2010 made my mom especially proud.

Drones Over Dolphin Stampede and Whales off Dana Point

"Captain Dave Anderson of Capt. Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, California, at great personal risk, has recently filmed and edited a 5-minute video that contains some of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping, footage ever taken with a drone from the air of a huge mega-pod of thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California, three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California, and heartwarming close-ups hovering over a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom as an escort whale stands guard nearby, filmed recently in Maui."

Drones have really received a bad wrap, as of course there are many negatives involved. THIS is how you can use a drone to capture something beautiful.

早く走る裏技
当時小学校1年でそれやって学校来てた奴がいた

方法1
まず靴の中にプチプチを入れる方法です。 まずプチプチを10cmくらいの大きさに切り、プチプチが内側になるようにして2つ折り~4つ折りくらいにし、これを靴の底(かかと側)に敷くだけです。

方法2
おなかに鉢巻を巻くといいそうです。 鉢巻でなくともいいのですが、何かをおなかに巻くことでそれが腹筋の補助となり、腹筋の弱い人でも早く走ることができるそうです。

方法3
足首に輪ゴムをとおす方法ですが、これは実際やると結構痛いようなのであまりおすすめできませんが、輪ゴムを甲のところで一度ねじり、親指にかけ8の字の状態にするそうです。

方法4
走る直前に「けんけんぱ」をする。ティシュペーパー等を奥歯で噛みながら走る。上体を低くし、コースの線を踏んで走る。

For the past four years, 16-year-old artist Shania McDonagh has participated in the Texaco Children’s Art Competition, an art contest for children in Ireland held every year since 1955. Just looking at the astounding portrait above, it may come as no surprise that McDonagh has won the top prize for her age category every year since she was 12, and this year snagged the top prize overall with this hyperrealistic drawing of a man titled Coleman.

The Ultimate Vintage and Retro Design Bundle (Limited Time Bundle) 
Today I’m excited to share an incredible vintage/retro design bundle containing well over 1000 great items, including textures, brushes, graphics, logo/badge templates, hand-drawn elements and much much more! There’s a ton of great stuff included, plus it’s all extended license, so you can use these resources within works that you resell. Normally it would cost you $330, but the team over at Design Cuts are running the entire bundle for just $29 for this next week only (that’s 91% off). This is a limited time bundle, and I can’t recommend getting it enough.
Check out just some of the beautiful resources below: http://bit.ly/1nsvI3v
