Artist Bob Al-Green imagines Game of Thrones characters growing up in the ’80s and ’90s. Here’s what their school photos would have looked like. The set includes the Starks, namely Robb, Sansa, and Jon Snow; the Lannisters Tyrion, Jaime and Cersei; Daenerys, Theon Greyjoy, and everyone’s beloved King Joffrey.
Go big or go home. Since it isn’t in the nature of excavators to handle tiny things, they go big. Like playing Jenga with 600 pound blocks big. Five different pieces of equipment get into the game to remove the gigantic wood blocks. We got to say, it does look like fun. The video is a promotion for Cat Products (Caterpillar), that is, the bigass machines you see playing the game.
Artist Abraham Poincheval lived for thirteen days inside a bear. When we say bear, we mean this very bear-like structure where the artist decided to spend 13 days. The bear was positioned in the center salon at the musée de la chasse et de la nature in Paris. Visitors were encouraged to interact with the artist, or the dude who sleeps in the bear. Facilities were included inside the sculpture to cater to basic needs like food and water. The bear even had its own electricity.
Flipbooks by artist Juan Fontanive are incredible, not only are the animations beautiful, but the underlying mechanism is pretty darn sweet. The artist makes these mechanisms by recycling and repurposing parts from old bicycles and clocks. Then comes along the process of hand drawing, painting, and screen printing the images. Several of these display birds and insects in flight, a subject that goes extremely well with the sound made by the flipbook as pages shuttle.
It’s so meta. Firemen, water hose, and a hovercraft.
Photographs by Asher Svidensky show the badass eagle hunters of Mongolia. Just to be clear, these are people that hunt with the golden eagle to capture prey. As we already know, the golden eagle is one badass hunter, even more so when combined with the skill of these hunters.
Sailor Moon and Sailor Scouts get to the job of being the Earth’s mightiest superheroes in these illustrations by Jei Shepard.
We are totally amazed, not just by the blast of colors that is visible here, but also by the imaginative presumption that someone counted eight million flower petals. Nevertheless, this tiny Costa Rican village did get showered with millions of flower petals.
With great power come inexplicably large names. The latest special edition Bugatti Veyron is the Black Bess. Belonging to the Bugatti Legends series, the new supercar pays homage to the Type 18 Black Bess. One of the fastest street legal cars of its age, the Type 18 made quite a mark in the pre World War I era.
Chomp on an object that you see everyday around you, and it just might be a chocolate, or it might be what it looks like. Japanese sokkuri (‘look alike’) sweets are desserts that look like everyday objects. Recently on a game show, celebrities and participants were asked to bite everyday objects; some of which were desserts, and others were exactly what they looked like.
