Today we’re looking at a couple of odd and wonderful photographs, dreaming about imaginary travel destinations and going back to the future (and everywhere inbetween) with some fascinating illustrations.
ONE – Johno Mellish launched a new site and along with it, revealed some fantastic new images.
THREE – Promo images for Hannah Collection, a womens-wear label produced in Cape Town by designer Hannah Lavery. She has just launched an online store and is having a “waiting for summer” winter sale!
FIVE – Extracts from Skop, the first of ten books in the Wake up, this is Joburg series. “Writer and urban planner Tanya Zack and photographer Mark Lewis present a startling story of entrepreneurship and survival in the city. Their text and images take us to uitval grond and to a condemned building, where a thriving commercial network has its start before branching out to various corners of Johannesburg.
The butchers and traders and entrepreneurs who have made this business uniquely theirs, speak of the hardships of their work in the meat trade and the occasional rewards of making it on their own. It’s a story not just about an interesting and tough line of work, but about business and how to get things done, how to operate below the radar and, against fairly tough odds, how to make things work. More or less.”

SEVEN – Some recent photographs from Out the Office, a tumblr documenting Patrick John and Chloe O’Doherty’s journey through the USA in a 1995 Chevy campervan dubbed ‘Dora’.
Read an interview with Chloe and Patrick.
EIGHT – A few doodles we saw and liked at this year’s Night of 1000 Drawings – Cape Town.
