Okay, I did not expect my childhood idol and number one spinach endorser, Popeye, to be this… old. Multi-awarded special effects makeup artist Rick Baker printed out this realistic – and menacing – rendition of Popeye using a 3D printer he bought at a charity event auction. Using a digital model he made back in 2007, he was able to achieve surprising results given the price of the machine.
What does music look like? Certainly not a bunch of notes and lines like we previously believed. Actually it looks more like a 3D Jackson Pollock painting. The images of multi-coloured globs of paint are from the man they call the ‘3D Jackson Pollock’, artist Martin Klimas. To find out what sound looks like, he placed a transparent scrim over the diaphragm of a speaker.
Hey Mr. Incredibeard, I think we just found your worthiest adversary. ‘Will it Beard’ is a Tumblr dedicated to showing everyday household items stuck onto the facial hair of art director Pierce Thiot.
Nothing blights modern life like selfies do. Or cats, for that matter. Which naturally means that cat selfies are now a thing. Making it a snap for cats to take selfies is the Snapchat app on Android, where a red dot darts around on the screen and takes a shot when your cat paws at […]
Wow. In March 2012, Francisco Negroni visited Cordón Caulle in Puyehue National Park in the Andes of Ranco Province, Chile with his camera equipment. He left the site with these crazy photos of the active volcano erupting while a lightning storm took place. These pictures are so remarkable and dramatic, we’re not sure if we […]
Welcome to your typical Victorian era mansion. It’s got approximately 7,000 square feet with 8 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms, a study, a wine cellar, and BAM! An action-packed spaceship cockpit right in the attic. Ok, that’s just the play room for the kids, but isn’t it neat in an 80’s sci-fi movie kind of way?
So apparently last January, scientists started posting tweets with the #overhonestmethod hashtag. Are we late to the party? Good thing the Internet’s around.
In late 2013, artist Miriam Elia launched a successful fundraising appeal on KickStarter for We Go To The Gallery, a children’s book with the look and feel of these Ladybird Books for birds. The book mocks the art world, as well as takes on decidedly un-kiddy themes like sex and death.
Towering mountains and vast oceans become vowels and consonants in this series found deep within the archives of the British Museum. Illustrated by a Charles Joseph Hullmandel sometime between 1818 and 1860, the series contains 26 landscapes contoured to become the letters of the alphabet.
How did you spend your time as a teenager? Playing video games? Sport? Maybe mixing it up with friends at parties? Well, be prepared to feel like you wasted your youth! These photos were all taken by teenagers. All of them. They’re from the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards and to take part in the […]
We don’t have many details of this, but take the YouTube video description for what it is. A GoPro is ready to go in a skydiving plane with a bunch of jumpers. Somehow, it accidentally falls from the plane, and tumbles down, spinning furiously (and we see a cool effect of recording framerate/spin-rate almost matching) all the way. And it keeps recording.

Again, the Dutch have proven that their country is oh so perfect. While most countries are still trying to integrate bike programs on their crummy roads, the Netherlands are already light years ahead. Introducing, the ‘Hovenring’, one of the world’s first bicycle path roundabouts.
Redditor Tatsputin, or Fred Giovannitti in real life, wowed us all with his superior dad skills by simply colouring in his kids’ artworks to kill the time on his business trips. The Internet picked up the story and the rest, as they say, is history. We spoke to the Super Dad about how it all started and what he’s been doing since [read our original post about Tatsputin here and here's a Facebook Q&A our readers did with him]
When embroidery artist Hiroko Kubota got a special request from her then very young son to put hand sewn cats on his shirt, she didn’t expect that the designs would make the online world go bonkers. Of course, this comes to n surprise to us as considering these are cats – the internet’s animal deities. We were lucky enough to get a moment with her and ask her more questions about her famous cat embroidery. [read our original post about Hiroko Kubota]

Paris mayoral candidate Nathalie Koziuscot-Morizet has made quite a stir with her plans to revive old and abandoned Parisian metro stations. Not only would Koziuscot-Morizet be the first female to ever hold the title of mayor in the capital, but she’d also be the first to reclaim Paris’ abandoned stations.
David Bussell is a writer, performer, and stand-up comedian who has travelled to many places and stayed in plenty of hotels. In these hotels, he leaves what he calls hotel graffiti in places hard to find, such as behind picture frames, underneath toilet bowls, and so on. We interviewed him to pick his brain about his famous brand of street art. [read our original post about this hotel graffiti and a Facebook Q&A our readers recently did with him]
John Bitmead, a 48-year old mechanic from Oxfordshire, UK, may just have redefined the meaning of Throwback, albeit with an adult twist. He, his brother, Geoff, and their buddy, Nigel Douglas, did five months work converting a Daewoo Matiz into an adult-sized, street-legal Little Tikes Cozy Coupe.
When French painter and illustrator DZO said on his website that he doesn’t like constraint when it comes to art, we assumed he meant his choice of canvas. So probably after mastering traditional art on boring pieces of paper – which you can check out on his Instagram – he moved on to more challenging surfaces: stones and skulls. He uses river stones and a found skull and covered them with intricate illustrations. Kudos to his steady hand and patience, because from the look of these pieces, it must have took him a long time to finish each one.
UPDATE: We interviewed DZO about his peculiar choice of canvas and also asked about his intricate art style. Here’s a preview of our exclusive interview!
You use a paper, as well as stones and skulls, for your art. Which type of canvas do you like drawing on best and why?
My favourite canvas is paper! Any paper. But the skull was incredibly interesting due to surfaces variations.
What was the most challenging part of drawing on stones and bone? What was the best part about it?
Those surface are still ‘living’ materials: rough, bold, smooth, cracked, absorbent. Taming the variety of surfaces on a volume is a real adventure! That was the challenge for me.
Best part? The part where I finish it and watch the impact of this kind of artwork.
