You probably have already seen some pictures of Liu Bolin before (or didn’t even realize he was there) and now he’s back with some more cool camouflage art! As we wrote before, Liu Bolin became popular for his mastery at the art of camouflaging himself against virtually any background. The results are incredible – sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is around until he moves.
We post so many great design examples here on Bored Panda that, I’m afraid, it can sometimes make you feel bad about yourself. That’s why it’s good to look at some bad works from time to time, to be more specific, we want to show you 30 Worst Book Covers and Titles!
Wondering what to do with those old, dust-collecting CD piles on your desk? Australian sculptor and illustrator Sean Avery has a wonderful solution! The artist shatters old CD’s to make incredible animal sculptures. Of course, this is not the only way to use old CDs!

The images were made by taking high-speed photographs of ink mixing with water, but unlike the previous times, the artist mixed two colors and titled his new series ‘a due Colori’. The result is so powerful that I think I’ll be riding these ink waves tonight in my dreams, just like his Ink Riders.
Venezuelan tattoo artist Yomico Moreno creates some of the creepiest and most realistic muscle tissue and biomech tattoos you’ll ever see. Personally, I have no problem looking at these images, but after seeing my girlfriend’s reaction (I’ve never seen her so shocked) I think I have to put a warning.
