Cross-Stitch Tattoos By Turkish Artist Eva Krbdk

Many people consider cross-stitching to be something their grandma would do, but Eva Krbdk, a tattoo artist based in Ankara, Turkey, seems to think otherwise. Her cross-stitch tattoo designs look like a cross between pixel art and the popular folk art they’re named for.

Many of her pieces are simple and cute, but with a large-enough canvas, they can become truly impressive, utilizing a wide array of colors that blend to form beautiful images. She’s not a one-trick pony, either – check out her Instagram for other cool tattoos!

Taiwan Invents Square Watermelon Bread That Is Delicious And Confusing

In one of the weirdest and most confusing food mash-ups we’ve ever seen, a Taiwanese bakery has invented a loaf of bread that looks just like the equally bizarre square watermelons popular in Japan.

According to Jimmy’s Bakery, which invented this twisted masterpiece, it was designed to get kids excited about eating bread during the hot summer months when their appetites decrease. The bread uses natural dyes – green tea for the rind, strawberries for the flesh, and charcoal for the seeds. Some alternative recipes online also suggest trying raisins as seeds.

It seems like it would be fun and delicious to eat, though it might be disappointing to bite into on a hot summer day. It’s very popular locally, though!

New Condom Will Change Colors If Someone Has An STI

The fact that someone has created a condom that can detect sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is amazing on its own, but the fact that it was invented by a team of 13- and 14-year-old students is even more impressive! Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali and Chirag Shah from the Isaac Newton Academy in London came up with the concept, calling it the ‘S.T.EYE.’

The condom glows faintly in different colors depending on what STIs it has encountered; green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple for human papillomavirus, and blue for syphilis. They won the first prize (£1,000) for Health at TeenTech Awards, a competition that encourages 11-to-16-year-olds to create inventions that will help the world.

My Hyper-Realistic Plate Art That I Call “Plart”

I was pretty much born with paint on my hands! Over the years I have pursued my passion for the fine arts through many avenues, but it was around three years ago that I discovered the joy of working with ceramics and porcelain.

As the Resident Artist of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Toronto, my hand-painted plates made their original debut at TOCA, the Ritz’s signature eatery. Here they continue to serve the purpose of both function and intrigue; a plate at every setting of the 120-seat restaurant sparks both conversation and inspiration for future design. To date I have painted over 1500 plates and counting, and my custom designs range from landscapes, portraits, animals, food, and everything in between. While my explorations in plart are proving to be rewarding (painting custom plates for the A-list during the Toronto International Film Festival is a pretty wicked job perk, right?!), there is nothing more inspiring to me than bringing joy through custom art to clients all over the world!

Alice In Poppie Wonderland

I started to mix my drawings with pictures of real objects some time ago with the project called “Sketching Words”. The object brought life to my character, and my drawing was changing the meaning of the object itself. I soon found that I could tell tales and stories to the people who watched my sketches with very few elements.

This is my version of Alice’s adventures in Wonderland. I sketched some characters of the novel making them interact with poppies. I always imagined Wonderland as a place full of these flowers.

Driftwood Dragons And Beast Sculptures By James Doran-Webb

James Doran-Webb, the incredibly talented driftwood sculptor whom we wrote about previously, has expanded his work from majestic horses to terrifying driftwood dragons that seem prepared to terrorize the village folk in the surrounding countryside.

Doran-Webb has created two epic dragon sculpture. The first, perched on a dead tree, is called ‘The Wyvern in the Baobabs’ (a wyvern is a type of dragon with two legs and two wings). The other, ‘Wyvern’s Folly,’ is perched on a gazebo made from reclaimed steel and recycled water bottles.

Doran-Webb works in the Philippines, creating amazing, powerful sculptures of creatures like these dragons using found driftwood and steel frames to make sure that they can support their own weight.

I Hand-Craft Animal Masks From Hammered Steel

I live in a crowded city and that can sometimes make me feel alienated. Especially when I see how the world is shaped by a passion for consumption. To cope with this fragmentation, I retreat to mountains for summer months. Nature helps me reconnect to the things that matter, and eases the sense of isolation.

For me solitude is a gateway to creativity. My art is a response to social alienation. I see how society is full of turmoil and chaos. Creativity is a process that is alive in all things, and relates with human roots running deep with meaning. This evolution, from poor progress to doing something better needs patience. We need patience and have to know pain. What we have is time and space to use creativity in becoming better. When using the metal pieces I am using time and space, past and future, all that is in life. I have previously created a metal lion,

Photographer Marc Simon Frei has captured some striking images of tiny lightning storms sparked by a Tesla coil. The coil produces high-voltage, but low-current electricity that produces charged plasma filaments that resemble lightning.
