These Anker PowerLine+ Lightning cables (3' | 6') are wrapped in nylon, are rated for 6,000 bends, and come with an 18 month warranty, all of which are improvements over Apple’s own Lightning cable, and that’s not even accounting for how much nicer they feel to use, or the included pouch that keeps them organized.

Self-taught artist Sofia Bonati captures nuanced expressions and personalities of a variety of female characters while also integrating them into abstracted environments and patterns. Her illustrations most often feature solo subjects melded with thunderclouds, dizzying mazes, and floral patterns. Bonita renders the women’s features in graphite and she uses gesso, paint, and markers to add colorful accents and build their surroundings. The strong, distinctive expressions on each woman’s face suggests that the characters are in control of their environments, rather than being subsumed by them.
In a recent collaboration with Society6, several of the Argentinian artist’s works have been animated by glitch artist Chris McDaniel. You can see more of Bonita’s work on Facebook and Instagram, and find a variety of products featuring her designs on Society6. (via Visual Fodder)

Lauren MarxIn a new group show at Beinart Gallery in Australia, nature's flora and fauna are explored. Courtney Brims, Lauren Marx, Crystal Morey and Thomas Jackson, each with his or her own distinctive approach and themes, contribute to “Botanical Bestiary,” which runs from Aug. 11 through Sept. 2 at the space. Much of the work is inspired by the terrain of Australia itself, from the native artists.
For “Swarm,” the Gallery explains, “he continues to explore his development into the world of color with mixed media paintings. This has been a gradual process and these paintings represent another step on a journey away from the monochrome works, a palette which he says remind him of death, morning and loss, toward a fuller albeit still unnerving atmosphere. Exploring themes around conflict and constraint, aggression and repression, greed and destruction, Sheehy is not only commenting on his own experience, in what he describes as semi-autobiographical works, but also on our innate nature.”
“Swarm” will be on view until September 2nd, 2018.
