If you follow our Facebook page, you may have noticed that we’ve been sharing a lot of new works of Brock Davis lately. Seeing his great interest in food, I’ve decided that his creative food art is worth a separate entry. Brock Davis is a Minneapolis-based artist and creative director with a knack for creating ground-breaking work. Brock has worked in advertising for the past 17 years. When he isn’t busy making ads he’s busy making other things, like one piece of art every day for a year in his “Make Something Cool Every Day” project.

While many photographers are in the race for the latest gear, 16-year-old Spanish photographer Cristina Otero uses her cheap Canon 1000D and 50mm f1.8 lens to create the most incredible self-portraits. In her series called “Tutti Frutti”, Otero cleverly combines various fruits with bold makeup colors creating some of the most powerful portraits I’ve ever seen. Interestingly, she doesn’t even use any studio lights. All Otero needs is a natural light coming from the window.
These super cool “Climbing Up” tights depicting a tiny man climbing up the back seam were designed by Kenan Doğulu for a Turkish company Penti. They are so sweet that animator Dunken K Bliths even did an animated gif version of them making the seam-climbing guy swing.
Denmark-based photographer and cellist Nikolaj Lund decided to reinvent the portraiture of classical musicians by taking the subjects out of their natural environment – the orchestra pit – and asking them do strange poses in places like streets, oceans and deserts. The results are beyond amazing!
If you happen to be building a house, and it’s going to be higher than one floor, you’ll probably need a staircase. What do you imagine when you hear the word “staircase”? Let me guess.. You see this very basic staircase shape that a 5 year old would draw, right? But why not go beyond that?
At first I thought it was a great idea, now I’m not so sure. Several commenters pointed out that bread is bad for birds. For example, people at Eugene’s Alton Baker park were asked to stop feeding bread to birds because it can cause a condition called “angel wing”. The condition is marked by a deformed wing and spindly feathers that poke out at right angles. It’s a result of a poor diet, such as calorie-rich breads, that causes birds’ feathers to develop faster than their bones. I’m sure the idea author Curro Claret wasn’t aware of that and all he wanted to do is to feed his little friends.
Jason Lee who is a wedding photographer started taking photos of his two little daughters back in 2006 when his mom was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. The girls were constantly sick, with colds and coughs so he couldn’t always bring them to visit their grandmother. Jason wanted her to be able to see her granddaughters without catching their kid germs so he started a blog where his mom could see what was going on in their lives.

This unique washbasin by HighTech Design was inspired by the spiral shape of ammonite shell. In case you didn’t know, Ammonites are an extinct species of free-swimming molluscs who lived in the ancient oceans around the same time that the dinosaurs walked the Earth and disappeared during the same extinction event. Our panda fans from Facebook loved it, but Andre and Darik pointed out that it must be “a pain in the ass to clean”.
