Take a closer look at this picture…
Check out this work by 10 year old graffiti artist Solveig. I love it!
That fresh tat is also by Solveig! Some guy had seen a lot of her work around and really liked it, so he requested a tattoo! I’m so impressed! There’s a little picture article about her on Telegraph UK, and it has a little bit more information about her in the blurbs. I couldn’t figure out where she’s from, though I’m sure it’s in there somewhere. Whatever, she’s awesome! Make sure to have a look at Solveig’s Flickr too, she has a ton of terrific pictures!
So I recently bought a copy of Kris’ latest zine, Cool Heart, and I love it so much! I seriously look at it like 10 times a day. And I’ve had it more than a week now! It’s so good, and really cute, I recommend it to anyone! Below, find a couple of pictures cut out from the zine. If you are a fan of Kris’ work you should definitely check out her site, she has lots for the eyes there! And if you want a copy of Cool Heart, get one here!
These gorgeous pictures are from the Collectanea Botanica, a series of monographs by John Lindley issued between 1821 and 1826. I love things like this! I saw them on BibliOdyssey, which is becoming one of my favorite sites to visit lately. The guy who works on it finds pictures from all kinds of old books, ones that have been posted online and ones out in the library, and then posts all the best pictures from them.
These paintings by Amy Bennett really intrigue me, because they look to me like miniature models, not oil paintings! There are a few little places on each piece where I can clearly see it’s paint, but for the most part it really tricks my eye! Don’t they look like little figurines to you?
Via Design Crisis.
How do you guys like this Mona Lisa folding chair? You could put it on your wall, or sit on it! I really like it, weird as it is, it catches my eye. The frame is so cool! Created by Korean designer Kwang Hoo Lee, you can read more about it here on CubeMe.
These amazing beeswax sculptures were created by Hilary Berseth, with the help of many bees! To get the bees to build their combs in the shapes he would like, he constructs basic frameworks out of wire and wax, and then puts them into a closed box in the spring. After that the bee colonies take over, filling out his templates with wax cells, then stuffing them with honey. Check out NYMagazine for more information and a really nice little slideshow about it!
Via For me, for you.
All these animals were created using the land masses of the Earth, and without changing the shapes or dimensions! They’re a little rough, but I like them! Does anyone know who did them? The site where I saw them doesn’t say…
I’ll bet you never thought to spend the night in a renovated sewage pipe! However, at Das Parkhotel in Austria you can cozy up and spend the night (or a few) along the banks of the Danube in one of these well-decorated (and clean) pipe rooms. There are some more pictures on the hotel’s site. I’d totally try it! Would you?
