Putting his love for photography and travel together, New York-based photographer Richard Silver not just visits various spots around the world, he brings back delicious visual goodies of his travels. The photographer makes use of several techniques to capture images, though for the moment our primary interest would be dictated by his project Tilt Shift.
Dolls can be beautiful, and human-like. The key being that it’s almost impossible for humans with doll-like proportions to actually exist. Or at least, exist naturally, as we’ve already seen plenty of people try. Japanese model Vanilla Chamu is the latest on that list we’re not keeping. Over the years, Chamu has undergone 30 plastic surgeries at an expense of 10 million yen ($100,000) to look more like a porcelain French doll.
One insanely detailed and amazing project, this is the recreation of the battle of Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings. The build by Rich-K and Big J is about 90 percent complete, and manages to look epic even with that tag of being “unfinished.” Setting the scene for the battle, 150,000 bricks have gone to build the walls, towers, ladders and the general landscape, while 1700 minifigs take their roles as elven, human and orc armies engaged in battle.
Grumpy Cat very likely is amongst the biggest celebrities of our time, or maybe even better because we can’t think of many celebrity names who have art projects dedicated for them. Grumpy Cat Art Project features more than 30 artists and is currently on exhibit at Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment complex in Huntsville, Alabama. The medium used by the artists, or even the variety of situations Grumpy Cat appears in is quite varied. What doesn’t change however, is the influence of the star feline.
Most of our college/university experience can be summed up with a lot of alcohol. Yet it doesn’t quite get a standing in the formal graduation. Dominique Zamora has corrected the massive wrong with this DIY Graduation Cap Flask, meant only for the eyes of graduates of legal drinking age. Add a flask to the cap, attach with pipe, Profit!! Zamora used the wine rack bra for the raw materials, and probably as an inspiration to create this hat.
Vintage themed lamps and objects that artist Cory Barkman (previously) creates, come from a very elaborate process. The stunning design and the beautiful appearance are of course, a big part of the job, but the story of materials used in making these lamps is impressive in itself. Most of the objects used in the construction of these lamps are reclaimed mechanical parts from a scrap yard. Once the idea takes its shape, Cory looks for parts suitable for his lamps or forges a part if it cannot be found.
Disney characters get an educational experience in this set of illustrations by Hyung86. For the Disney University series, the artist envisioned various characters as students in a modern setting.
Putting in some effort can bring a big smile to someone’s face, and make their day. For the moment, Zoe Green is quite the poster girl here for doing the (not so) little things that make everyone’s day a little brighter. She calls the 5th of April “Happy Street Day,” a day when she got up at 5 in the morning to decorate her entire street.
Historical figures took their portraits seriously, which is only natural considering you didn’t really get to have yourself photographed a million times, a privilege we thoroughly enjoy today and use to fill our Facebook albums, along with random clicks of anything and everything. Historians, we assume also take these old timer portraits seriously, and probably sometimes also imagine how these portraits would turn out in the modern era.
We like to vehemently deny it, but let’s face it, we’re hooked to games. This set of images from Dorkly shows just how things are, everybody knows them, but no one is willing to accept. All this kind of makes us wonder what kind of drug would be the flash games we so often find ourselves hooked on to, play for hours at end, and never look back at them. And they don’t even make any sense!
