DRB Feel-Good Issue #9

Link - by Avi Abrams

Some joyful stuff to brighten up your day
Mixed images flow: cars, girls, etc.

Welcome to the new issue of Dark Roasted Blend's "Feel-Good" series: mostly bright and sweet collection of images designed to propel you along your day with a smile on your face and a spring in your gait.

This is a kind of Tumbler-substitute for the caffeinated, busy crowd with deeply-felt and sophisticated sensibilities, somewhat nostalgic about more glamorous times (you know who you are), or just looking for that extra bit of sunshine.

Mind-Boggling Art & illustration
