The Illustrated Battle of Willpower

Uncountable souls have lost their battle to eat and live healthy in the face of an onslaught by junk food and procrastination. Santiago, Chile based artist Oscar Ramos created this set of illustrations for a government aided print campaign called “Elige Vivir Sano” (Choose Healthy Living). The campaign was set up to encourage people to make use of their will power and adopt a healthier lifestyle. The illustrations do very much appear to be in tune with the idea.

The Canadian Goes Where No Train Has Gone Before

The Canadian Goes Where No Train Has Gone Before

“The Canadian: Ghost Train Crossing Canada” by photographer Jeff Friesen shows a train passing through beautiful locations in Canada. That train does not travel by itself though, it’s a toy train that travels with the photographer and settles easy in the vast and diverse landscapes of Canada, including some places that would be impossible for a real train to visit. The photography is mesmerizing; prints are available on the photographer’s website.

A Scary Face That Appears in Air Whenever Airplanes Pass Through

A Scary Face That Appears in Air Whenever Airplanes Pass Through

That “face” you see here isn’t flying out of someone’s imagination. It is very much a truth that appears whenever airplane fly. It isn’t just clearly visible because the air isn’t colored like the green fog in the image that was placed especially for this test. These happen to be wingtip vortices; not entirely uncommon, but super cool to look at, especially when you set up an experiment specifically for them. Hit ahead for the gif image of the action, and if you want it more hardcore, there’s a video too (action begins at 5min 53seconds).

Mechanical Insects Made From Watch Parts and Light Bulbs

Mechanical Insects Made From Watch Parts and Light Bulbs

Chicago-based jeweler Justin Gershenson-Gates took a break from jewelry designing to create magnificent insect sculptures that bask in the anatomy of watch parts with a touching of light bulbs for effect. Justin started the set as a break from his usual work, and soon became interested enough to create more of these arthropods and insects. These sculptures are usually made in a single sitting that can last for as long as 12 hours. You can get hold of some of these sculptures over at Etsy.

Headlights Take Things A Bit Too Literally

Headlights Take Things A Bit Too Literally

Going fully by the literal meaning, these lamps by Brooklyn-based artist Stephen Shaheen take form of a humanoid, only to replace their heads with light bulbs. That’s how they become headlights. The artist’s idea for the project titled “American Socket” is to explore the border between art, design and architecture with this creation. When arranged properly, the headlights appear to be reaching out to the power source, apparently in the search of illumination, or enlightenment, as we humans would like to call it. Well, this turned philosophical quickly.

Awesome Pop-Up Lego Building

Awesome Pop-Up Lego Building

Lego bricks, it seems can do anything, even beyond the limits of imagination. For all the things in the world, we never thought Legos could be used to chalk up a pop-up building. But then we’re not Talapz, the dude who created the mind boggling model of the Tao-ji Buddhist temple, and did it as a pop-out.
