When I was a kid, people who could solve a Rubik’s Cube were a rare thing. Nowadays, there are entire leagues dedicated to solving them as quickly as possible, and even guys who can solve them while wakesurfing or juggling.
Despite it being a little trippy, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is still one of my favorite books from my childhood. As our young protagonist Max enters the world of the Wild Things, he encounters a variety of wondrous and scary looking beasts, yet manages to win them over and become their king.
I think glass is one of the most amazing art mediums out there. It’s really difficult and dangerous to work with, but in the right hands, it can create amazing, intricate forms. If you’re into collecting art glass, but want something a little different, then check out these sculptures I spotted over on Etsy.
If I learned anything from Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s that we all need a totem, lest we might actually be stuck in a dream within a dream. If I had to choose one, I think I’d go with a top too, but something a bit cooler than the one he had in Inception.
I’ve seen lots of models of the Starship Enterprise over the years, but this wooden version by Kretschmer Kreativ is one of the most beautiful and elegant versions I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Measuring in at 36″ long x 16″ wide x 8″ tall, the model is handmade entirely from wood and glue.
Do you want to scare the crap out of visitors to your house? Well, this massive Darth Vader statue should do the trick just fine. It measures in at a whopping 7’2″ tall, which is about how tall the real Vader is, and it tips the scales at nearly 850 pounds, which is what Jabba the Hutt probably weighs.
This may be the most perfect pile of poo ever created. It’s made from gold, so it won’t come back up after you flush. Technically it’s a geometrically correct turd as well. The geometry of this poop sculpture is based on the combination of an Archimedean spiral and the Golden Ratio/phi in triangles.
Barry Crawford said that when he was a kid, he dreamed of growing up to be a robot. Sadly, his childhood dream hasn’t come true yet. But he did become what he calls a “gizmologist”, making mechanical artworks, furniture and jewelry.
If you’re a Star Wars fan who attends conventions, you’ve probably seen Roxy The Rancor. Maybe you even had your picture taken with her. Well, now Roxy has some competition for your photo ops.
Roxy’s creators Rick Boehler and Erik Hollander are working on a replica of the Luggabeast from The Force Awakens.
Many geeks are familiar with LEGO enthusiast Jason Allemann. But he’s only half of the entity we know as JK Brickworks. The “K” is his partner Kristal. This is one of her latest LEGO builds, which she calls the Engineer.
Very few things in video games scare me for even half a second, but the sight of a Deathclaw in Fallout 4 usually sends shivers down my spine. These things will really ruin an otherwise pleasant walk through the wasteland.
Centaurs, who doesn’t love ’em? But chop off the torso and you get the entire spectrum of reactions. That’s been the experience of Brooklyn-based artist Kate Clark, who loves to make taxidermied animals that have realistic human faces.
