Apparently, the superdad with artistic talent that he is, graphic designer David LaFerriere has been drawing cute illustrations on lunch bags for his kids Evan and Kenny.

Artist Jason Freeny has an ongoing series that features popular characters with a slight twist. These characters maintain their usual appearance on one side, while the other (usually the left) side has been torn apart to show glimpses of the anatomy of these characters. We never imagined the Marshmallow Man would have bones and such anatomical detail, but well, good for him.
Images by Canadian photographer Matt Molloy present the sky in a way that seems to have it painted through broad brushstrokes. To achieve the effect, he takes hundreds of photos of the sky and then puts them all together to create images for his “Smeared Sky” series. The number of photographs required depends on various factors like weather conditions, cloudiness, or whether the object in the picture is moving or static. Eventually, the result is a beautiful composite where the objects stand ground to sky painted by a master.
