We are fans of the stunning looks of the Lamborghini Aventador, we’re even more enamored by someone going the impressive route and crafting a supercar entirely out of paper. Seattle based artist Taras Lesko crafted this full scale Lamborghini Aventador using only paper. The paparecraft supercar has been styled in the looks of a police interceptor and christened with the name Aventador A-E2. Frame of the car is built on thick cardboard for support, then given shape with printed sheets of E2 architectural paper (hence the name).
It probably wouldn’t be much off the mark to say the minions were the highlight of Despicable Me 2. We have seen them in several settings, and now we see them in two of our favorite series. Sherlock minions and the Star Trek minions, now that is a pretty damn good thing.
Lee Samantha is the mother of two daughters, and an excellent story teller with food. She makes beautiful pictures out of food which makes it that much easier for children to enjoy their food, and their vegetables. Several characters from books, movies and popular culture show up on the plates looking all gorgeous and delicious.
This is what Pikachu would look like for real. Forget the cute eyes, forget the good looks, the non-anime Pikachu is as ugly as they get. Can’t say it was unexpected, Pikachu is after all, a rat. Real world Pikachu is a taxidermy creation by Divya Anantharaman (previously).
We are all very well acquainted with the concept of high tide and low tide, though seeing the two effects in quick succession with the availability of a reference point changes things entirely. Images by Michael Marten show the wonders of change of tides, and how completely they change their surroundings.
Sony’s new QX series Lens Style Cameras are brilliant. A good chunk of photographs come from the very capable smartphones almost everyone carries these days. In the same vein, cameras too have evolved into digital settings and many of their components overlap with those available in smartphones. Sony is putting the two in a union with the Lens Style Cameras. The QX Series are comparatively small cameras, almost smaller than several lenses available. But each of these is a full fledged camera with its own lens, sensors, processor, microSD storage, and the wifi capability that makes it all possible.
David Bowie the hamster, we’re inclined to believe, is all in favor of dressing up. He may be unaware of the stuff he is doing, but David Bowie really knows to stick his face right where it matters, with the aid of a cutout of course.
The thing about anime is, everyone looks good. Illustrator Jon-Lock set out to draw what popular websites would be like if they were all anime characters. Firefox and Chrome though not really websites, get a representation as well. It’s a pretty, pretty set.
Unlike the majority of such portraits that we see, these are not rendered digitally. The apes you see here are the Japanese Samurawashi, who are trained street performing monkeys often dressed up in human clothes to act out skits. US-based photographer Hiroshi Watanabe captured portraits of these very human-like apes in human-like clothing, for a series entitled Suo Samurawashi. It is of course the resemblance between the apes and humans that gives these photographs a somewhat familiar look that is further powered by the subjects wearing clothes.
Humans write and sing all kinds of weird things. If it were not for cats silently improving on human efforts, we would still be in the stone age. New York based graphic designer Sofia Falcon has created a set of images where she shows the effect of cats on song lyrics, and how they could have been way better if cats had the opportunity to make them right the first time.
