When I first saw this, to my naive mind it looked like a plastic hair accessory built to look like a coiling snake to keep your hair together. As it turns out, this is the real deal. A baby green tree python who was so taken by Dr Anne Fawcett, it decided to spend some time rolling in her hair, acting as a hair tie.

Artist Drachea Rannak cast Disney Princesses in the role of Sailor Moon characters for this set of illustrations. While we assume Disney princesses have been to a lot of different settings and popular culture universes, the sailors haven’t really been that prolific lately. The anime sailor girls sure are picking speed though, just yesterday we saw Sailors in an excellent mashup with the Avengers, and now they’ve gone the route of the Disney Princesses.
Earlier this year, Lamborghini showed its willingness to depart from conventional car design with the Veneno. Now, it apparently wants to cement the idea with the Egoista. This one though, is a one-off concept made to celebrate 50 years of the marque. The single seater supercar has a silver body with orange rims and accents, plus really sharp and pronounced curves and cuts that are intended to give it a look and feel similar to its inspiration, airplanes and jets.
The latest Japanese photo-meme to make rounds is the human eating giants. It owes its origins to the new anime Attack on Titan. Originally a manga, Attack on Titan tells the story of a city that is under attack by human eating giants.

Check it out.
Tippi Degré was born in Namibia, Africa while her parents French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert were there in the Kalahari.

Illustrations by British artist Jonathan Wolstenholme has a love for old books, and it shows in this series entitled Books on Books. The illustrations show a world where books read books, play cards and chess, and have a social life of their own. A book reading a book while writing a book is quite an interesting force at play.
Apache Revolver is a very interesting weapon. You can put in bullets to shoot, wield it as a knife, and if that isn’t enough, it can be used as a brass knuckle to do some hard punching. The Apache originated in Belgium and soon found favor with the French underworld where it was used till about the end of the 1800s.

Mikko Kuorinki had the project “Wall Piece with 200 Letters” running from March 2010 until February 2011 at the Kiasma museum, with words being changed every week. It is pretty self descriptive, where the artist used a maximum of 200 letters to present these quotes from various sources. We like the simplicity, and we like how good this looks.
