Nudi is a nick name for the Nudibranch. You may think it is related to naked, yes, it is! Nudibranch means “naked gill”. It is an invertebrate animal from the molluscs group that can be found anywhere in the oceans. They are more diverse in tropical seawater like in Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Artist gives old photographs a new life by adding colour and surreal backstories

artist recolours old photographs to bring them back to lifeThe one thing missing from all vintage photos: a flying goldfish (Picture: Costica Acsinte Archive/Jane Long)

Giving old photos a whole new life.

Artist Jane Long‘s Dancing with Costica project takes old photographs and brings them back to life, recolouring the images and giving each of the photographer’s characters their own imagined backstory.

Jane says she started the project to brush up on her retouching skills, but quickly got caught up in Costica’s images, wondering what the stories of the people in the pictures could be.

She says: ‘I wanted to bring them to life. But more than that, I wanted to give them a story.

Lifecycle of a Power Plant Lump of Coal

Power Plant Men

Fifty Percent of our electricity is derived from coal. Did you ever wonder what has to take place for that to happen? I thought I would walk through the lifecycle of a piece of coal to give you an idea. I will not start back when the it was still a tree in a prehistoric world where dinosaurs grew long necks to reach the branches. I will begin when the large scoop shovel digs it out of the ground and loads it onto a coal truck.

The coal is loaded onto trucks like these before it is dumped onto the train cars. This photo was found at The coal is loaded onto trucks like these before it is dumped onto the train cars. This photo was found at

The coal for the power plant in North Central Oklahoma came from Wyoming. There were trains from the Black Thunder Mine and the Powder River Basin.

First Night Design | The Haunting #Halloween

Just imagine you’re living in the 19th century and want the perfect entertainment for Halloween. You could try The Haunting at the Theatre Royal. But beware the black cat!

Having just sold this Halloween card on Greeting Card Universe, it’s clear that people are already thinking about 31st October and being spooked out by kids trick or treating!

Just in case you were wondering, there was never — to my knowledge — a Victorian play called The Haunting. The image was created with various bits of family ephemera and Photoshop’s design tools, except for the black cat, which came (I think) from The Graphics Fairy.

First Night Design | Bound for Santiago #Art

I created Bound for Santiago in the form of a collage and then blended the images into one with Photoshop. It comprises one of my textured backgrounds, two photos by Joshua Earle at Unsplash, and a lovely antique ship by Zakhar Kleyman on Flickr.

Why Santiago? The title came fully formed from the mouth of Mr FND; where would we be without dreams and imagination? The fact that the antique ship photograph was taken from Staten Island ferry is neither here nor there!

First Night Design | #PhotoRehabCoverMakeover #6

First Night Design

e309thumbI’m entering another challenge.  Who’d ‘ave thunk it! It’s actually a form of creative procrastination since although I have several pieces in the pipeline on my digital drawing board, as it were, I’m not happy with any of them at the moment. See a sneak peek of one on the right!

The Photo Rehab Cover Makeover is run every week by Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist and Lucile of Lucile de Goday. The idea is to re-imagine a new cover for a known work, whether a book, an album, or a movie, by adding your own photo and embellishments. For the latest challenge, we are asked to re-do a bar of chocolate – a particularly uninspiring packaging design as you can see!


I used a detail from one of my Christmas pieces which had been created using a photograph of a bowl of grapes to which I had added textures as…
