Jason Stanley digitally cleans up and enhances vintage patents from over the past 200 years, and turns them into stunning prints which we would love to hang on our walls. The patents, which he chooses to work on, run the gamut from those for common household items to action figures based on iconic movie characters.
The artist says that “his goal is to bring these inventions (that we have all grown to love and benefited from) back into everyday life in the form of art.”
Jason Stanley is based in Bowling Green, Kentucky. You can buy over 300 prints in many color and size options at his Esty shop.

Ben James, a 3D generalist based in Louisville, KY, creates his elaborate laser cut wood designs using an unique layering method. Using Autocad to design the patterns, he creates a base design and uses an expanding/banding technique to create the layers. He then cuts each segment out of birch wood with a laser cutter, and then glues them together to create a single cohesive artwork.
James says that he has a background in graphic design (a 4 year computer science degree from Purdue University), but over the years he gained experience is using many different applications. You can buy his creations and also place custom orders over at his Etsy store.

Crochet-artist extraordinaire Olek visually transformed one of the 184 homeless shelters which dot the Indian capital city of New Delhi, to raise awareness about the lives of the desperate people who live in them.
Covering the entire 40 feet long and 8 feet high structure with crocheted yarn was a labor of love for the artist and a team of local volunteers, who toiled for seven days to put together the entire project. The NYC-based artist’s installation was part of the ‘Rain Basera’ project for St+Art Delhi 2015, a street art festival in New Delhi.

While traveling through Amsterdam, the editor of Arthurious, a New York-based design journal and studio, was fascinated by how obsessed the city’s residents were with their door numbers. Mostly made by hand, these calligraphed numbers are often carved in stone or wood, or created using a variety of materials like metal, ceramics and glass.
Some of them looked high-brow, some sickly, some pensive; one of the digits begged for a bike with a cart of tulips in the front. By and large, they felt they’re a second dimension to the city: quiet but as eloquent as people.
Soon, the folks at the studio were sharing photographs of the numerals on their Instagram account. After picking the best from hundreds of images, they digitized their selections into a typeset and used it to create a lovely 24” x 36” minimalist calendar poster made up of hundreds of different characters. The poster comes printed on high quality 192 gsm paper, and you can get it for $42 at their site.
