Photographer Kaija Straumanis has recently gone viral with her series of light-hearted self-portraits that (appear to) capture the moment she’s pelted with various random objects, usually metaphors for an epiphany.
Simon Christen‘s Adrift is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area which took over two years to capture and compile.
Photographer Chris Herwig has travelled more than 30,000km across 13 countries to document bus stops in remote corners of the former Soviet Union. The socialist state might have failed but you’ve got to admit that they had a better eye for public design than current capitalists.
Apparently that last trailer for the latest Hollywood Godzilla remake was a teaser. I just can’t tell the difference between teasers, teaser-trailers and trailers any more. So now there’s a “proper” trailer or something. The film still looks fine, I guess. The rising-from-the-water bit gives me uncomfortable memories of the Broderick version but whatever.
Australian photographer Ross Jenkinson clearly has a good eye for the wind-swept, damp and wild English countryside, as his own site and more frequently updated tumblr portray.
There’s not much about American copywriter Tom McElligott to find online, so here’s my part. He might not have a Wikipedia page but Tom’s body of work, from the 80s to early 90s, speaks for itself amidst an age of print advertising that sought to create bold, memorable brand images.
We might not have successfully cloned dinosaurs and reborn them from extinction just yet but for when we finally do, John Conway has created this handy guide to help you decide without terrible lizard you might want as a pet.
Ivan Belikov creates detailed illustrations of the logos of popular social networks, like Facebook and Twitter, reimagined as creepy-looking animals.
Mehmet Gozetlik has taken the world’s most famous brands and made their packaging more minimal. Some of them are probably better than what we currently see. Brands like Guinness and Evian are already so strong that less is more. But there’s something about a lifeless Nesquik that makes me think of a bleak, totalitarian future.
Designed by architect Clive Wilkinson for The Barbarian Group, a creative agency in New York City, this desk is 4400ft² and loops and wraps around the whole office in one continuous circuit.
USA and Denmark face-off in some intense cat curling at the 2006 Winter Olympics.
It will not surprise you that Hilo Chen’s artwork has been featured in Playboy. Although, I’ll admit I can see some sense in spending hours, day and presumably months meticulously creating hyper-realistic paintings of semi-nude women. Certainly beats the winter blues.
Aled Lewis‘ series of pixel art paintings(?) feature famous punches from modern cinema and TV. Like George McFly’s iconic moment of heroism and Nic Cage punching a bear.
Apparently the sounds we make when we sneeze are culturally learned and aren’t necessary at all. So when you make that noise you’re really saying, “hey, look at me, I’m sneezing”, you egotistical shit. James Chapman made this comic about the different ways that 10 languages sneeze.
Daniel Sax created this visual accompaniment of Ira Glass‘ inspirational quote about the creative process, motivation and fear that he calls “the gap”.
For his series Wiry Limbs, Paper Backs, Terry Border sticks wire arms and legs into famous books and brings their content to life in little humanoid sculptures.
Swiss artist Markus Raetz creates the illusion of a rotating head using silhouettes cut from metal panels. Is it just me or is the head emanating light? Nothing has ever looked more like an acid flashback.
Graphic designer and illustrator, Daniel Nyari‘s series of Playmakers and Match of Day portraits feature legengary footballers past and potential. You can get them on T-shirts because that’s what people do, isn’t it?
Ron van der Ende retains the original colour and texture of each found wood fragment in his series of space and mechanical sculptures.
Samplify is an Android app available from Google Play that listens to your music and identifies the samples that your favourite artists have ripped off. It’s great for hip hop. And will put an end to arguments about whether Bill Withers’ Grandma’s Hands was ripped off by Blackstreet for No Diggity. Hint: it was.
