Imaginative Pairings of Everyday Objects with Simple Illustrations by Javier Pérez

Thursday 10.31.2013 , Posted by

1 Javier Pérez

Sometimes everyday objects can have more than their intended purpose, especially when in the hands of creative artist Javier Pérez. Much like the works of Alex Solis, Perez layers simple objects with marker drawings to give them new life. Toothpicks can be miniature drumsticks, orange segments become lungs, and spaghetti noodles can rain down from the sky. The possibilities are endless and Perez seems to have no shortage of clever ideas, posting one of these creations almost every day on Instagram. [Read more…]

Growing up, basketball was my thing. I dreamed of supporting my family with my mediocre jump shot, my 5′ 8″ frame in the 4th grade and becoming an NBA All Star by the time I was 19. Sure enough, my growth spurt capped at 6′, I quit basketball junior year of high school, and any chance I had of averaging $5.15 million a year in the NBA was quickly sidelined (pun-intended).

It’s been a while since we heard from Nando Costa and his Kickstarter launched project to laser engrave a stop motion film. After a long two years, and a ton of work on Costa’s part, the project is finally complete… and it was well worth the wait. The animation features a series of modernist psychedelic vignettes that flow in hypnotically smooth motion as changing wood grain flickers across the rectangular background. [Read more…]

Hovenring header 2

When a roundabout intersection in the bicycle loving Netherlands became too busy for cars and bikes to share space, the design agency ipv Delft came up with a beautiful solution to separate the two transportation forms completely: an elevated bicycle roundabout. Located on the border of Endhoven and Veldhoven, the bike path is fittingly called the Hovenring (yeah, we read that hover-ring at first too). The structure holds the distinction of being the first suspended bicycle roundabout in the world. [Read more…]

Going door-to-door between abandoned shacks in isolated California towns such as Barstow, Yermo and the Salton Sea, Kerns captures peeling, finite facades painted against infinite nighttime skies.

The Golden Girls as Legos: A Must Have Collectors Edition for Every GG Fan

Tuesday 10.29.2013 , Posted by

The Golden Girls Legos 1

Although The Golden Girls finished its last episode in 1992, it stays in our hearts forever and syndication has helped keep the younger generations in the loop on the 4 sassiest old ladies in sitcom history. For many of us who were alive for the original airing, it was during our youth, when playing with toys was our primary concern. Brent Benedetti brings two wonderful memories from that era together in this glorious Lego set of Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux, and Sophia Petrillo. The whole limited edition set can be yours if you check out his Etsy page. Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty will look down from heaven with smiles on their faces as you proudly display your new Lego set. With Christmas just around the corner, I can think of nothing better to get that die hard Golden Girls fan who has everything! [Read more…]

Kids Halloween Costumes- 1 Ghostbusters

Trick or treat! Although it’s probably past the time when you would be deciding what to dress your kids up as for Halloween, we thought it might brighten your day to see some hilarious kids costumes. Although some of the characters they portray are not kid-friendly (I would hope no child has seen Silence of the Lambs or Breaking Bad) and likely based more on their parents’ favorite movies and television shows, it’s pretty entertaining to see children in these roles. If I saw trick-or-treaters dressed in some of these costumes I might just have to pour my whole bowl of candy into their bag! [Read more…]

Glass cabin Nick Olson Lilah Horwitz 1

For some creative people, there’s no better way for finding inspiration than getting away from it all and taking in a good view. This small cabin is the perfect location… and inspiration in and of itself. Hand-built by photographer Nick Olson and designer Lilah Horwitz, the charming little structure was built with a front wall of old, repurposed windows in varying sizes and when completed cost an amazingly low $500 (plus a LOT of scrounging).
