My daughter was given some origami books to make boats and such last year for Christmas. Three folds in, I gave up. I can’t imagine the frustration that making this awesome Godzilla origami would create in my household.
Vintage matchbook art has a unique style all its own, but as cool as it is, we all know that it is lacking something. It needs more monsters! That’s why Austin, Texas illustrator Chet Phillips has created a special series of matchbox art.
Artist Agelio Batle has created an interesting installation called Ash Dancer. The project isn’t literally made from ashes, it’s a life-size skeleton replica that was made using graphite. Essentially it’s a giant pencil in the shape of a skeleton that lies on a vibrating table.
The worlds of Garfield and Pokémon collide in “Garfémon”, a cool art project by Chicago artist Shawn Bowers, who surely is a fan of both.
Bowers has illustrated all 151 first generation Pokémon characters as Garfield the cartoon cat.
Every so often we come across something truly horrifying, like this series of illustrations from the twisted mind of artist Disse86. Seriously, we’re talking twisted like a pretzel. No, twisted like a factory full of pretzels all tangled together.
I always knew that robots would pick us up and twirl us around, but I always pictured it with more screaming and the human landing in a bloody heap on the ground.
This industrial robot is twirling around Serbian artist Dragan Ilic, but Dragan actually likes it.
My daughter is really into art right now. She’s also into curling up in bed under her massive comforter even if it’s literally 113-degrees outside. This means I have to tell her at least once a week to not get markers on her fancy bedding that she couldn’t live without.
Laser pointers are cool, especially the bright ones that you can use for popping balloons and harassing the cats on the next block over. After a while all that gets a bit boring though and you need something new and cool to do with your laser.
Some of the coolest stuff turns up on Kickstarter. I remember when the 3Doodler first showed up there a few years ago, I thought that was really cool but didn’t like the idea of expensive filaments to purchase to keep using the pen.
When my kids were really small, I found it highly entertaining to use gobs of bath bubbles to create little wizard hats and beards on their little chubby faces. The trick was to see how tall you could get the hat before one of them crushed it or ate a big mouthful of beard bubbles.
The folks behind the 3Doodler are back with yet another update of its popular handheld 3D printer and it is called the 3Doodler Create. The new version is said to be even more refined and easier to use than ever.
Back in 2011 we checked out artist John Karpinsky’s Star Wars character portraits that had awesome Day of the Dead-themed twists. He recently reached out to us to share the latest additions to his series, featuring some of the heroes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Cats have claws, and they aren’t afraid to use them. They will scratch up your rugs, furniture, even fine works of art, all to file down their claws. Never give your cat access to a priceless works of art.
I’ve turned into a big fan of Game of Thrones over the last few weeks. I have streamed all the episodes of the series from about season three, leading all the way up to the new season coming out this month.
Some artists sculpt with their hands, some chisel stone, others paint with brushes. Uncle Rob paints on canvas by throwing cans of spray paint into spinning lawnmower blades. What could possibly go wrong?
Whether you call him an idiot Picasso or a dumb-ass Van Gogh, there is one thing you can’t deny.
