Fellow Designers 1/28/00 Description:
a portfolio - pure and simple
After going through almost fifty sites last night, I was sure glad to find today's winner. No hype, no sales pitch, no bookstore links - no nothing but a simple portfolio of cool, creative pieces from two designers in Stockholm with a single dropdown menu interface. Very simple - very nice!
sijmen hendriks photography 1/18/00 Description:
gallery of dutch freelance photographer includes work from nepal, india, morocco, jordan, ireland and the netherlands
For the second time this week, the Best of the Cool winning site comes from a Dutch freelance photographer - an interesting coincidence, indeed. Today's winner features mostly black and white photography from a number of places - I like the presentation which uses layers - fast loading pages and easy navigation. One of the sections of the gallery contains portraits and other photographs all related to philosophers from around the world - pretty cool...

the photographs of Rob Huibers
Rob Huibers is a freelance photographer working in northwestern Europe whose work is seen in various Dutch newspapers and magazines. His site offers several galleries of photographs, including portraits, landscapes, and topical features. Wallpapers, resources, and a "Photo of the Month" round out the content - an interesting and easy-to-navigate site.
dangergraphics 1/13/00 Description:
design and illustration portfolio of a college instructor who teaches animation and multimedia product creation
Although today's winning site has room for improvement in content (don't we all?), I am really impressed with the slick interface, color scheme, layout, and original illustrations on display. I also admire the fact that the producer is thorough in giving proper credit to copyright holders for the images which were based on others' original artwork. All in all, this unique site is one to watch and worth checking out!

"all matter is speed and flame"
You'll need Flash to view the main attractions, which deliver tasty sight, sound and motion. There's a most unique flavor and style here, and you won't need Flash to enjoy the extensive list of inspirational sites - but, be forewarned - you might not surface for an hour or two...
Laudator 1/11/00 Description:
Computer illustrator based in Paris, France. Illustration, photomontage, photo collage, digital image and graphic creation.
Originally posted to the Links Arena back in November, today's winning site showcases the colorful works of a digital artist in Paris. I really liked the feature that allows you to change background colors as you're viewing the pieces. There are four different galleries plus an excellent list of links to other artists on the web.
Donald Roller Wilson 1/1/00 Description:
"Alive with spirit, they peer out from the surreal landscapes of their canvases with eyes which bare their simian, canine, and feline souls, and invite us to share in their reverie... or their revelry, as the case often warrants."
If you're interested in buying any of this artist's works, you better have some really big wads of disposable cash layin' around (like the stars who collect them). But even if you're broke, you can go enjoy some of the most unique paintings exhibited on the web - the non-human subjects are more human than humans themselves!
