Jumping body parts? Say it isn't so! In this latest series by Italian art director Giuseppe Mastromatteo, called Indepensense, we find that our senses have all been screwed up. Back in 2007, Mastromatteo thought about the idea of "masks" in the sense that "we all wear a mask but we're still the same person." With the help of new technology, Mastromatteo moves beyond this idea and includes something… Continue

Haunted Paradise

Glenn Barr is a jack of all trades. As a kid, he drew, painted and played guitar in a band. Working with felt-tip or ballpoint pen, Barr rendered true-to-life depictions of his favorite rock stars on t-shirts, jean jackets, and on the cover of spiral bound notebooks.

Paper Birds

UK-based artist Bronia Sawyer colors, folds and rolls the pages of books to create these unique, beautiful birds. “I like to take something like a book and turn it into something visually pleasing,” says Sawyer. “I like the fact that books are flat and square.

Hypnotic Neon Movie Gifs

UK designer Mr Whaite combined famous cult movies with neon signs and turned them into spectacular animated gifs. The results speak for themselves. Brilliant!

Fascinating Phone Book Portraits

Back in 1995, Alex Queral was just an undergraduate at the University of Washington in Seattle who loved to paint. What he enjoyed the most was creating self portraits using a "heavy impasto technique," which required a lot of paint and sometimes even wax to make the faces a bit more sculptural. Suddenly, he hit a wall. Queral was using so much paint that it was costing him a fortune. As luck would… Continue
