Hyper-Realistic Acrylic Body Painting

Beyond Sexy

These shots by Los Angeles-based fashion photographer Joseph Tran are beyond sexy. He has the innate ability to make his models look absolutely gorgeous, while maintaining a high level of sophistication in his work.



Inspired by the works of Terry Richardson, Tran focuses on bringing out the best of those he works with on a more human level, rather then a technical level. “It speaks volumes when you can bring out sides of your subject that most other photographers can’t and won’t…

Oil Paintings Embellished with Gold - Brad Kunkle



Brad Kunkle's oil paintings are given the Midas touch when their surfaces are embellished with genuine gold and silver. The beauty of these paintings is that their appearances subtly change depending on the angle at which you view it or the light that's shined upon it. Also, notice that they're actually oil paintings and not photos.



"I knew I wouldn’t be…

Bridging the Gap between the Real and Digital Worlds -- You NEED to see this!



Until I saw this video I thought I was pretty smart. Well Pranav Mistry is now the smartest guy I've ever seen. This talk, filmed last November at TED India, is the most eye-opening thing I've seen in a long, long time. Pranav shows us how to close the gap between the data in our computers and the objects we interact with in the real world.
