In the illustrations of artist Lars deSouza, Marvel characters are cats. They’ve become a wee bit difficult to recognize, Thor almost looks like a dog; but that probably is besides the point.
Artist Simon Harsent finds his calling in photographing icebergs. This set in particular takes a good, hard look at what may be loosely called the life span of an iceberg. The portraits start with massive icebergs as they reach Greenland’s Disco Bay from the Ilulissat Icefjord and goes on to the east coast of Newfoundland, where the icebergs have been mostly battered, melted and traveled hundreds of miles. You could buy individual portraits of the icebergs, or the book here.
Artist Johnny Hermann made these popsicles as an experiment in nostalgia. It’s like hundreds of flavors right before our eyes, waiting for us to dig in. But therein lies the trouble. These 150 popsicles won’t be any good to taste, they are all made of wood. A perpetual popsicle could still be a good idea though.
This armor has been created for emperors – of the post-apocalyptic era. That would be a wonderful time to strut around in badass Victorian armor and people would just fall at the emperor’s feet. In all earnestness though, the custom Steampunk armor by Ian Finch-Field really is wonderful.
At just 16 years of age, Spanish photographer Cristina Otero seems to be very good with the camera and the creative aspect of photography. In this set, Tutti Frutti she poses with fruits, adding makeup on her face to look somewhat like the subject; yet staying distinctly out of the subject.
Things as mundane and troublesome as coffee ring stains can actually turn to something as brilliant as this poster. We’re assuming Taiwanese musician Jay Cou’s songs inspired artist Hong “Red” Yi to drink a shitton of coffee, without using coasters. Yi managed to place her cup and saucer so well that the effort ended up being a very impressive portrait of the musician. We got to hand it to her, one does not simply make art with coffee ring stains.
Loosing the heart is never a good idea, those things are terrible to find. Thanks to this street art project by Roadsworth, the heart can now be found in the unlikeliest of places.
We’ve seen the amazing papercraft of Phillip Valdez before, and we’re delighted to see another round. Made in his inimitable style, the Victorian Steampunk Iron Horse matches its humble paper origins to the impressive and strong metallic looks. It is the attention to detail that makes the Iron Horse all the more formidable. The gears, cogs, meters, levers and pipes are very clearly visible, making the paper sculpture look quite “functional.”
Nowadays it seems when we get talking about natural beauty, we’re talking about Iceland. This time, we have aerial photographs of the wondrous landscapes. The shots were captured by photographer Sandro Santioli as he flew above the landscape in a Cessna aircraft, clocking in over 70 hours of flight time and brought back these wondrous gems that make Iceland look like a wonderful and somewhat alien, but enchanting world.
