Bull Terrier Rafael Mantesso 1

When he’s not doodling on just about everything in sight, Rafael Mantesso is drawing silly scenes around his bull terrier and posting them on Instagram. Apparently this dog can sing, fly, does nude modeling and has broken the law at least once. But what’s most impressive is his patience – this dog seems to take it all in stride. It reminds us a lot of the playful work from ma_hovina and her german pointer. [Read more...]

Shaun Kardinal has been creating digital collages using found images from friends’ Facebook and Instagram feeds… specifically nabbing the birds that frequent their skies. His series Flying Formation is a collection of improbable (or impossible?) formations of birds in curving spirals, perfectly straight lines and sky filling flocks.

There are few things that inspire photographs like a pet… especially one with loads of character. Lal is a German shorthair pointer with character in spades, and a lot of patience too. He sits through loads of photo shoots with his owner (who goes by ma_hovina on Instagram), making images from the theatrical to the surreal. Get a load of all the bizarre hats, objects perfectly balanced on his head and even a few cased where he’s sprouted wings. [Read more...]

When we all saw the awesome new idea of Instagram hitting the scene like it did a few years ago, it has always been hard to imagine someone creating something to rival it. While some have ripped off the idea, designed it somewhat differently, and slapped a new name on it, feeling like they’ve added to the conversation, in reality, they may be missing the point. They’re just repeating the person who spoke before them. This is not the case with San Francisco based startup Momentage. Momentage is a community for the new creatives. [Read more...]

“If something isn’t on the internet, it didn’t happen.” At least that’s what a lot of people seem to think in our modern age, when every birthday party, natural disaster or new creative pursuit has to show up on Facebook or Instagram. But what if the major historical events of the past happened today with our current social media obsession? What if DaVinci had posted instagram teasers showing his nearly completed Mona Lisa? What if someone posted a photo of the Trojan horse before its secret contents were revealed? That’s what MTV designers Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen set out to do on their hilarious new blog, Histagrams. [Read more...]
