Jared Muralt was born in 1982 in Bern, Switzerland. Though he attended art school for one year in Bern, Muralt is primarily self-taught, and he developed his precision and skill through the careful study of books as diverse as those pertaining to anatomy, art history and comics. Muralt is also co-founder of BlackYard studio, a Swiss illustration and graphic design agency that was honored with Bern’s Advancement Award for Design in 2009.
Muralt is largely inspired by the quotidian: his sketchbooks, which he carries with him at all times, are filled with fascinating studies of people, scientific inventions and the animal kingdom.

Japanese textile artist betibettin crocheted this awesome bowl of ramen that looks good enough to eat, although we’d recommend using it as a pillow for a post-ramen nap rather than an actual meal. Each ingredient has been expertly crocheted, right down to the tiny curls of green onion.
betibettin created a fascinating video tutorial for this project so we can see just how each ingredient was made. We were particularly curious about how he made the noodles and broth look so realistic.
No please excuse us while we go heat up some Cup Noodle.
I’ve got Lia’s site bookmarked for anytime I need to wrap a gift. Her colours and patterns are gorgeous and any person who I’ve gifted with her wrap have commented on it. This is one of my favourite colour combos - plum, navy and pumpkin.
