If you’ve been keeping up with our featured Zap websites for the past few weeks, you’ve probably seen some cool stuff. Whimsical art blogs, beautiful trips around the world, obligatory adorable pet Zaps. Here’s a collection of 10 really notable favorites to share with you. (Truth be told, there were way more than 10, but we need to start somewhere) Take a look, leave a comment or a like, and maybe get a bit of inspiration as well.
1. “Painted Moon Log” by Jessica Tea
Painted Moon Log is a really brilliant idea. Jessica takes her daily journal entries about the moon, and pairs them with adorable digital paintings of her sights during the day. It’s an enchanting little story that you can follow along with, and maybe learn a thing or two about the moon cycle.
2. “Fashion” by Stephanie Rose
I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but Stephanie has cranked out some really interesting Zaps. This Pinterest-esque collection of fashion eye candy caught a lot of people’s eyes. But her inspiring collection is more than just dresses and hats- you’ll find some crazy interesting stuff like armadillo mittens and lips that look like Pokemon.
3.“Sawasdee from Thailand” by Stephiedoo
A breathtaking travel photo-based Zap that really reads like a story. This collection has striking beauty and depth in each photo, and really puts you in the moment. Beautiful beaches, delicious food, cats hanging out… now I want to go to Thailand.
4.“Iron and Chrome” by ADISA
ADISA has a excellent collection of Zaps you ought to check out if you haven’t already. Here, he’s put together a gallery of impressive bikes he’s spotted through his travels. If you’re a lover of motorcycles, these will make your heart melt. If not, you’ll probably still enjoy it.
5.“Schleich World of Nature” by Mawry
The overwhelming originality and adorableness of this one took me by complete surprise. Tiny animal figurines hanging out in nature, paired with some quality photography? This takes you back to your childhood in the best way. You go, Mawry.
6. “Photography” by Jilu Panicker
Just take a look at the photo of the moon hanging over that lake and try to tell me that isn’t freaking awesome. Jilu’s photography is diverse, intense, and one of the best we’ve seen all week.
7. “Muse-ical” by Stephanie Rosell
This is another Zap done by Stephanie, but you can’t really blame us for having her in here twice. This is a great concept- Stephanie linked us to some of her favourite playlists and paired with some lovely aesthetics. Take a listen- And then make your own!
8. “Mobile City” by Fotologic
An iPhoneography gallery of truly epic proportions. Fotologic really knows how to wield an iPhone and tell a story. You can’t help but feel submerged in that urban city feeling as you look through these.
9. “Inktober 2012″ by: Ramsey Sibaja
Ramsey, otherwise known as Raz City Studios, has got some serious talent. Here he was given the challenge to create an ink drawing every day of the month- and I’d say he passed with flying colors. Robots, monsters and awesome galore!
10. “Must Be Dreaming…” by Scott Fisher
Nature photography with a very trippy twist. Be prepared for an eye-gasm. And then when you’re done, check out the rest of Scott’s really awesome photography Zaps.
I hope you enjoyed these just as much as I did. We’ll be posting our Top 10 once a week, so there’s much more to come. Or even better, create your own awesome Zap and send it our way – maybe it’ll make it up here!
Did you see some really awesome Zaps that are not on this list? Leave a comment or send me an email. Look forward to hearing from you!
