Animal photography is one of my favorite kinds of posts. To search for furry, little animals is truly relaxing, and man, aren't these Ferrets just the coolest animals ever? I want one. Seriously. After seeing flying dogs, we really needed to take a look at these über cute pictures of ferrets. I wonder if it's legal to have them as pets in Brazil. Does anyone know? Anyways, here are some great ferret photographs taken by some amazing people. You should really check their flickrstreams out for more great photography (just click each image to go to their pages). It's really worth the visit. I hope you enjoy these.

To shoot photos like Nick Brand you must have a lot of patience. His ability to capture the wildlife is enormous, like I haven't seen before. “African wildlife has never looked so regal and mysterious as in Brandt’s grave photographs. His elephants appear as weighty as the pyramids. His rhinos look more ancient than carbon. His apes know something we don’t. Given the multitude of human disasters in Africa, is it an indulgence to lose yourself in pictures that carry no hint of the wars and famines outside the frame? Not when the pictures are such powerful reminders that Africa is also a magnificent—and endangered—treasure house of animal life." - Time Magazine Look out for his newest exhibitions on http://nickbrandt.com/
If you don't have enough cash to travel to an exotic country and get to know their biodiversity, a good alternative is to learn these things by other people's experience. In case you're wondering what animals in Vietnam look like, Brendan Wenzel shows us. These illustrations belong to a series called "Wildlife of Vietnam", with over 50 pieces like these. Here are only a few examples of the this great set. Brendan styles is pretty cool, kinda loose and unpretentious. I sure like it a lot. For more pieces of this series, you may visit Brendan's blog. He'll appreciate it. I hope you like these.

Just to remember the book is amazing and if you're not the winner, go take yours, I'm sure all of you guys will love it!

THE WINNER And the winner of the book Spirit Animal is: Charlote I think my spirit animal is the snake.I was born on the year of the snake, and somehow got some of its characteristics. Snakes are calm and silent creatures, yet deadly when provoked. I do think I got my calm and silent personality from them, and though I'm not deadly when provoked, I can say that I won't be nice and joke to go around it. Snakes are said to be lazy, but while being at their laziest times, their mind still keeps on ticking. This goes for me as well. Even though I'm lying in my bed, there's still something cooking on my head. Congratulations Charlote, we'll contact you via email! Some more pictures about the book for those who didn't see yet!

This time im introducing an special art director from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. He is creating the concept art to the animation movie Kin-Dza-Dza. On his blog/portfolio he shares all his drawn concepts and ideas for the movie plus his personal work. We have already feature some of Alex's artworks in the past but more towards the surrealism inspiration. Now, I'd like to show you a few of my favourite images of his work containing scary animals and settings that look like an old Star Wars movie.
