Ecologically-Minded Artist Creates Stunning Dreamscapes. So Surreal.

January 19, 2018

Amy Guidry’s landscapes almost look familiar, with blue skies, clouds and distant mountain ranges. But what’s populating them is entirely different. Her hybrid creatures, disconnected (though still alive-seeming) animal parts and eerily calm human faces let the viewer know that something else is going on here. Something much larger.  That’s the point, though. In her “In Our Veins” series, the Lafayette, Louisiana-based artist explores the inter-connectivity of life on this planet, the…


I Would’ve Never Believed What This Guy Did Was Real… Til I Saw How He Did It. Mind-Blowing.

January 10, 2018

A week ago, I posted an article detailing the unbelievable woodworking creation of Randall Rosenthal. He created a very realistic box of money out of nothing but a block of wood. Well, looking into Randall a little further reveals that’s only one of many incredible projects he has done. This guy has an unmatched skill, creating very realistic wood sculptures of just about anything. If you just looked at them…

January 1, 2018

The Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod just got a bit fancier with the addition of a nine-story surreal mural by street artist Rustam Qbic. Entitled “Blossom,” it shows people reading books while their heads bloom into flowers. Despite the mural’s springtime imagery, Qbic spent eleven days braving snow and freezing temperatures to complete it.

This Coloring Book Was Designed By Someone Who Had His Eyes Closed The Entire Time

December 3, 2017

A new trend in books has taken the world by storm, and it’s not what you would expect. No, it’s not another series like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games — it’s something much more elementary. Welcome to the wonderful world of adult coloring books. And one take on the trend has opened quite a few eyes in New York City. Artist Ian Sklarsky just developed a coloring book in…


I Won’t Tell You What Makes These Photos So Awesome. But As Soon As You Look Closer, You’ll See Why.

October 19, 2017

Using tiny models that are all less than an inch in height, husband and wife team Kurt and Edwige Moses have created these amazing series of photographs which they fittingly titled “Un Petit Monde” or “A Small World” in English. It all started back in the summer of 2010 when Kurt was wanting to explore a new and more creative side to his photography. Since then it has really grown into…


Tolkien’s Art Is As Rich And Beautiful As His Stories. Why Don’t We Ever See It?

October 6, 2017

J.R.R. Tolkien needs no introduction, of course. The author of the seminal Lord of the Rings trilogy, along with many other works on Middle Earth, is a household name and a favorite of kids and adults alike. His incredible imagination, spurred by years of studying the ancient cultures of Europe, created an entire unique universe. …but he wasn’t just a writer. He created a visual record of his work as…


These Globetrotters Document Their Travels In A Really Cool Way.

September 7, 2017

Peter Sedlacik and Zuzu Galova run the blog “Lens Between Us,” which documents their travels through photography. Specifically, they take pictures of themselves taking a picture of the other. It may seem confusing, but their photos feature some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. They really have a great sense of what makes for a perfect backdrop. Not only that, but the “behind the scenes” aspect adds depth…

August 27, 2017

When it comes to traveling on a budget, Airbnb is a thrifty adventurer’s best friend. If you’re not familiar with the service, this site connects travelers with people who are renting out rooms (and sometimes entire homes) in their destination city. It’s a great way to save some money and avoid the cookie-cutter atmosphere of chain hotels. That uniqueness is what drives more and more people to Airbnb every day,…


This Guy Turns Unwashed, Dirty Trucks Into Art. Stop Washing Your Car!

July 27, 2017

This project is nothing but filth… and a guy’s finger… and an incredibly creative mind. “The Great Traveling Art Exhibition” by Ben Long is a continuous series where the artist uses nothing but his digits and grime to craft beautiful images on the rear door of freight trucks. Sorry, people who use a dirty automobile to draw something vulgar, but your genius has been outdone. Long began this project to…


Artist Creates Magical Storybook Worlds–Literally

July 23, 2017

Emma Taylor is a lover of books, not only for the stories they hold inside, but as beautiful objects as well. It might seem strange, then, that showing her appreciation of them involves scissors and glue, but we think that in the end, her love of books shines right through.  Taylor uses books, particularly older ones, as a platform to create paper sculptures of incredible detail. Usually, the sculptures, which are…
