Laura Jenkinson Makeup Artist 5

London-based makeup artist Laura Jenkinson has a hobby that will make you smile… really big. Using her face as a canvas, she’s been drawing cartoon characters around her mouth, and loaning them her teeth and lips… which look hilariously massive in comparison. You’ve never seen Nemo or Eric Cartman like this before. [Read more...]

Statue Selfies 1

The selfie is everywhere. Ellen Degeneres has that star-studded masterpiece from the Oscars; a curious monkey snapped one in the woods; and Kim Kardashian just announced she’s putting out a coffee table of her best examples in 2015 (please… no…). Now classic statues are getting in on the trend. Redditor Jazus_ur_lookin_well recently spent a day at the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, Ireland, creating a series of funny captures that make the statues appear to be taking selfies. The look on each statue’s face is priceless and oh so timely. [Read more...]

Jamie Clauss Dog Baby Pictures 10

Baby photography is one of those things that has quickly turned into a gigantic cliché. Do a little snuggle, snap some picture of tiny feet, wrap them in a blanket – don’t forget the soft lighting. That’s why this series by photographer Jamie Clauss is so awesome. She and her next door neighbors Jan and Chase Renegar were having a boring day, so to liven things up they created a newborn photo shoot using their Jack Russell terrier. Her name? Snuggles.

IT director by day, Photographer/Photoshop Wizard Extraordinaire by night, John Wilhelm brings his imagination to life with the help of his 3 adorable daughters. At 5.5 years old, Lou is the big sister to toddler Mia (2.8 years old) and infant Yuna (6 months) and all 3 have been excellent participants in helping their daddy realize his wildest ideas. From a giant octopus attack during a scuba diving adventure in the bathtub to wild crocodiles stealing a camera, these girls have survived it all.

Someecards Harry Potter Grown Up 1

Growing up isn’t always easy. We’ve seen Harry Potter go from a young boy (played by an equally young Daniel Radcliffe) to a grown man over more than a decade of books and movies. But what happens to Harry in the future? This funny but sobering look at that potential future takes the form of book covers styled just like the real thing – but here Harry (along with his famous scar) is looking decidedly older. Check out that receding hairline! [Read more...]

With the announcement of Unicode 7.0 and 250 new emojis in the works (what would we do without “Man in Business Suit Levitating”) Microsoft has imagined what the new update missed – adding 49 more emojis you seriously wish you had. [Read more...]

Telmo Miel Kiddie Art Series 1

If you’ve got a young kid, your refrigerator is probably covered with drawings of bears, butterflies, cars and princesses. Let’s face it though: while the little rascals are filled with imagination, their creations aren’t exactly life-like. I mean, when was the last time you saw a whale with a kinked tail? Dutch muralist/painter duo Telmo Miel (Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann) have recreated a series of drawings by kid’s, retaining their youthfully drawn shape while applying an adult artist’s level of detail. The results are truly weird and sometimes creepy. [Read more...]

It’s a Lunatic Bum. It’s a New Age Tom Green. It’s Matthew Silver: The Great Performer

Matthew Silver

Laughter is contagious. Energy moves through the universe in a ripple affect. When we take ourselves too seriously, we block this powerful flow, but Matthew Silver is trying to break the dam that society has built and remind the world that it’s okay to laugh. It’s okay to look up and interact with people. It’s okay to be the “village idiot” and it’s okay to laugh with strangers. And the more we do, the happier the world will be. Like Tom Green with a positive message, street artist Matthew Silver can bring a smile to the faces of even the most serious New Yorkers. With an element of surprise, he acts as a modern day jester and works just as hard to make people laugh as others do to buy more stuff. [Read more...]
