This is one awesome Alien themed guitar. If Ripley ever put together a band, this is what the guitarist would play. It was created by Gig Goldstein and this carved guitar matches H.R. Giger’s original design very nicely.
I went and bought a stylus a few weeks ago, when I got hooked to OMGPOP’s Draw Something game. The craze has since subsided, but I still use my stylus a lot to doodle and just draw simple sketches on my tablet.
You consider yourself a hipster, and you love Instagram, but you’re not sure how the two fit together. Instagram is pretty mainstream, but your hair is not mainstream, your clothes are not mainstream, and your attitude is not mainstream.
I hate spiders almost as much as Indiana Jones hates snakes. Especially spiders like these, with sharp legs as well as fangs. The metal spider you see here was created by mechanical artist Christopher Locke, who created them from scissors that were confiscated at airports by the TSA.
These custom Sonic the Hedgehog Vans are pretty awesome, with a ton of nice detail. They were made by Reddit user lumpyheadedbunny and I have to say that they look great. They take a long time to make, but obviously they are well worth it.
Turntables can certainly be used to make art – but I usually think of them as a tool for auditory creation, not visual so much. Not so in this project, which transformed a couple of ordinary turntables into a drawing machine.
Have you ever thought about making portraits using screws? I never did but that didn’t stop Andrew Myers from using thousands of Phillips head screws to create these incredible three-dimensional portraits.
Clouds are those puffy white balls of cotton that hang in the air far above us. Unfortunately, only those select few who grew wings because of radiation exposure can fully enjoy them. Sure, we can all lie on our backs and pretend that these majestic pieces of nature look like everyday objects, but we all know that they all just look like masses of fluff.
3D printers are changing the world – now on a microscopic scale as well. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology have perfected printing 3D objects at the nanoscale and it looks like they are having a great time playing with their new toy.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That statement pretty much sums up why some people find certain things beautiful, while others may regard it as simply atrocious. But these multi-perspective shadow sculptures give that old saying a new twist, because even the same eye can behold different things, depending on the light.
Sometimes, pictures lie, and that’s no lie. I can personally attest to that, having bought tons of clothes and books via the Internet, only to get them in the mail and wonder why what I got was incredibly different from what I thought I bought.
I have been a fan of Charlie Brown going back to my youth with the Peanuts Halloween and Christmas specials. I never really liked how Lucy and the other characters treated Charlie though, they were always so mean.
Plants vs. Zombies has very adorable plants, but I wouldn’t mind a spin-off featuring a new character that used the plants as firearms as long as they look as awesome as these concept art by Fellipe Martins.
I’ve always had this appreciation for graffiti art. Notice that I’ve inserted the word “art” after “graffiti,” because I’m not talking about random scribbles or names that have been spray-painted haphazardly on walls. I’m talking about, you know, graffiti that was drawn or painted on as art.
A videogame is the only form of art that can not only simulate an experience but immerse its audience through interaction. That simulation is of course flawed and limited – Daigo Umehara wouldn’t stand a chance against a real martial artist – but still.
