Not only is Portugal’s resort island Madeira a beautiful year-round resort destination, with wonderful beaches and drinks, it also holds the annual Flower Festival every spring. The festival happens two weeks after Easter in the main streets of Funchal’s center. It’s a four day event that includes a children’s parade, a Wall of Hope, and […]
Probably inspired, or influenced, by artists such as Ed Roth, artist Otto Splotch has that punky, sometimes gross, but always interesting style. What sets him apart is the originality, spontaneity, and humour found throughout his work. This super trippy art seems like a perfect fit for the Brooklyn band Japanther’s cover art.
Snails looking at their reflections? Snails kissing? What about smelling a flower? These snails, shot by Ukrainian photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko, appear to be creatures of deep sentience. These crisp, colourful, heartfelt photos look like they could be part of a fairy tale.
Bob May takes discarded old books and makes them into magical collages. These collages are always beautiful, and usually surreal, with a comforting retro feel. May has a great way of placing two unrelated images together in a fun juxtaposition. I particularly like when he repeats the same image and pairs it with something else, […]
John Kenn Mortensen gives us a glimpse into a creepy yet curiously beautiful world of monsters through his post-it drawings. These fun drawings almost poke fun at reality by hiding the monsters in the most ordinary of places.
Working out of Denmark, Verner Panton designed some truly out of this world, trippy, beautiful furniture and room interiors. One of the 20th century’s most influential artists in the area of interior design, and using unreal colours, surfaces, light, and spaces, you will be wowed by what this man has done.
Masha Mel is an amazing fashion photographer based in London. Mostly shooting women, Mel has a way of capturing the inner (and outer) beauty in each of her models. Her work spreads along a spectrum of Spring Breakers (the movie) looking girls to serious runway model attire.
Created by IBM, A Boy and His Atom is made completely from atoms – the smallest particles from any element in the universe. Probably not the most captivating plot line, but definitely a interesting concept. This movie holds the Guinness World Record for the smallest stop-motion ever made and can only be seen when magnified […]
Sick of plain old sending your Tweets on a computer? Why not have a sponsored homing pigeon Tweet your Tweet for you? Not to be confused with @feral_pigeon choose from four pigeons (named Hans, Wilma, Jean Claude, and Engeli) to fly cross country with your Tweet. Once they reach their destination both the Tweet and […]
This Kickstarter project uses LED bars that fit along the inside of your wheel to create moving gif images as you ride. The lights can last up to eight hours at full brightness – up to 48 hours on lower settings. The only thing that would make it cooler would be if the energy produced […]
Sometimes humor at the simplest form can really hit the spot. Check out these funny monkey faces and brighten your day. I think the descriptions are just as funny as the pictures, and also somewhat informative on why the monkey looks the way it does.
That’s right, some wonderfully talented and imaginative people teamed up with school kids to make a twenty foot balloon Acrocanthosaurus for display at the Virginia Museum of Natural History. Using a real skeleton of the dinosaur as a guide, they tried to make it as realistic as possible. However, nobody really knows what their skin […]
So I think we officially found the girl with the coolest childhood. This little girl is just playing with a 14 German Shepherds and they are all loving it. If you look closely, you can see the little pups hidden in the grass as well.
When I first saw this, I was disgusted, and then I realized it wasn’t real and I was still kind of disgusted, but also full of wonder (there should be a word for that, grossed out and full of wonder at the same time). You would have to be a pretty morbid little girl to […]
