With astronauts, space ships, architecture, and a miniature sculpture of Michelangelo’s David for your ice cube, drinking whiskey just got cooler. To create the miniature 3d Rocks sculptures, Suntory Whisky used computer modeling to design each cube then let a precision drill handle the carving of the ice.

mountain

In the desert just outside Niland, Californina, stands a vibrant heap of color that showcases the life work of one very passionate artist. From 1984 until his death in 2014, Leonard Knight lived in a truck with no electricity or running water to manifest the message that lived in his heart as a monument for all to see. With hope and optimism, he allows his masterpiece to speak for itself, revealing the powerful message that love is the most important part of life. Never revealing the backstory of what made him stay in Niland working on this piece for so long, humble Knight seems to believe that the message he shares is far more valuable than how he arrived at it.

1 Skunk pets by Vincent J Musi

It may seem strange that anyone would want a pet skunk, but without their stink and in the right home, owners share bonds with them that would rival any cat or dog lover’s pet experience. Skunk owner Deborah Cipriani tells National Geographic, “I would not be without a pet skunk. They are very smart, have feelings and [bond] to their human companions. But they are not for everyone. Research is the key before people get any animal.” For a special article on exotic pets, animal photographer Vincent J Musi captured the loving bond between a pet skunk and his or her human.

The tattoo artist, based in Prague, Czech Republic, contrasts bold sketched outlines with seemingly sheer pastel colors. She achieves looks that seem like they could only work on paper, like colors that appear to be spreading out as they soak into the skin. [Read more...]

Photojournalist husband and wife duo Peter Menzel and Faith D’Alusion have come up with yet another poignant theme for their latest book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.

Along with each photograph is a list that details all of the items along with the total calorie count. [Read more...]
