Taking inspiration from the good old days of pixel art, illustrator Gustavo Viselner has created a set of images depicting scenes from some of the best known TV Shows. Take a look.
This decorative skull has a cool Steampunk-ish look that probably earn this guy a top spot in the zombie army, if he were undead. It is supposed to have a “secret” compartment to store tiny trinket treasures. That secret compartment happens to be a clearly visible drawer on the side of the skull, which is not so secret, but apparently saying that aloud would hurt the skull’s feelings. So we’ll leave it at that. Erasmus Darwin’s Steam Cerebrum Skull was designed in England, manufactured in China, and ships free to the United States. Price $54.

Starting with the Roman Republic in 300BC and continued during the Roman Empire, the Roman State built and maintained hundreds of thousands of miles of roads. The roads were important for the movement of people, trade, and of course, armies. At its height, the empire had over 250,000 miles of roads – of which 50,000 miles were paved. So what would it take for the representation of these ancient roads in the modern world? A subway map, of course!
Sasha Trubetskoy created this map representing Roman roads in 125 AD in a fashion similar to modern subway maps. Sasha says the map involved a lot of research since there was no single consistent source, plus, some creative liberties had to be taken for the map.
Artist/photographer Kimberly Money created this set of makeup and images to represent the 12 signs of the zodiac. For this set, the artist did the makeup and photography all by herself, connecting her iPhone to the camera and using the phone as the trigger. So what did she do for the shot that includes both her hands? Camera triggered by toe!
Artist Gaku carves exquisite patterns on a variety of fruits and vegetables. Food carving is called mukimono in Japan, and apparently, carved food is often served as a side dish. The artist has to be rather quick with his hands as oxidation sets in the moment the fruit is cut, and discolored edibles don’t look this picturesque.
Peruvian artist and photographer Christian Fuchs looked up at the portraits of his illustrious line of aristocratic European and Latin American ancestors, and probably thought “Hey, I can do this too!” Reality happens to be a bit more complex though. Christian grew up looking at the portraits that had been in his family for up to five generations.
These masterfully crafted area rugs and carpets may look like a bunch of stones, but they are indeed quite soft. The “stones” happen to be handcrafted and unique. The soft and textured pebbles are made from wool felted by hand. You can purchase the rugs and carpets from Etsy.
