Your weekly dose of creative inspiration, resources and awesomeness.
Here are Weekly Wonders 56’s champions:
Web: Wunderlist 2
Falling in both the website and app category, Wunderlist, the excellent free to-do productivity tool developed by the German group 6Wunderkinder, has just launched its second version. This service which now features more advanced functions is available as a web app but also for mobiles and desktop. It’s definitely a must-have for any professional who relies on to-do lists to get stuff done.
Art: David Cheifetz
David Cheifetz is an American traditional artist who paints with oils since 2007. Because of his clever light and shadow play, his use of saturated hues, sharp textures and dynamic compositions, he creates what might be some of the most stunning still life paintings I’ve ever seen. A tablecloth, some fruits and a glass are enough to take us to an alternative universe where objects have mysterious mesmerizing auras. Cheifetz also paints portraits and cityscapes, just as interesting. Make sure to take a look at this beautiful gallery.
Photo: Wendy Liu
Wendy Liu is a Fashion photographer based in Seattle. Her photos stand out from the bunch as they are dampened with emotions. Her portraits show the delicate side of her subjects, each revealing a story through their eyes. See it for yourself by visiting her portfolio.
Freebie: Smashing Magazine’s Christmas Icon Set
Christmas is almost upon us and what better way to celebrate than by putting Christmas icons in your website? Alright, I know other ways to celebrate which do not include Christmas icons, but those images created by RocketTheme are so cute I had to share them with you! Ho ho ho.
Mobile/Web App: Mobile Grooveshark (beta) – Free
Grooveshark, in case you haven’t heard of it, is a music library, not unlike Spotify. It’s free for desktop and also accessible on mobiles, including the iPhone. The beta version accessible at html5.grooveshark.com allows you to surf through the library and prepare a playlist on the go. It’s not a full-blown app unfortunately but it is nonetheless a nice way to discover music while travelling.
