Seoul-based illustrators Alberto Rodriguez and his childhood buddy Moo Hyun Chung launched a website called the “Daily Critter” five years ago. The Dominican-born creative duo wanted to illustrate a pun in the form of a fictional creature every day and post it on their site (for the rest of their lives!). Though it proved to be a tough task, they managed to draw over 500 “critter” puns over the years.

The two artists have now put together a deck of 54 playing cards which features their watercolor creature illustrations, and have created a Kickstarter project to print them in larger quantities. Depending on the amount being pledged, backers of the project can get their hands on the playing cards and even get visual pun illustrations made out of their names and photographs. There are also options to buy the 9” x 12” original watercolor pieces along with larger 16” x 20” acrylic on canvas paintings of select illustrations.

Chungkong, a Netherlands-based designer, has been creating some terrific pop-culture-themed artworks for quite some time now. His awesome new art project is a mash-up of the iconic Volkswagen T1 camper van with popular comic book superheroes. Chungkong has brilliantly incorporated several signature design elements from the costumes of the superheroes on the exteriors of the vans. Even the license plates of the vans have been cleverly given personalized numbers, which just so happen to be the year in which the particular superhero character was created by its maker(s).

The artist, on his project:

Superman is fortunate. He can fly without the need of any kind of vehicle. Other superheroes aren’t quite as lucky, having spent their childhoods as mere mortals before getting a spider bite or having their parents murdered. Most of them required something a little extra to transport them around the world.

And let’s be honest, there are some awesome rides around in the superhero universe. But what if their rides weren’t as cool like the Christian Bale Batmobile or the kickass Mark 3 Iron Man Suit, what if their rides were ragged T1 Volkswagen Vans…

Romanian freelance illustrator and designer Paula Duta (previously) continues her fantastic obsession with creepy-crawlies with her latest series of ‘Insect Alphabet’ illustrations. The alphabets in the series are made up of exquisitely-intricate colored pencil drawings of a variety of insects and even a couple of arachnids thrown in for good measure.

Slovenian videographer Nejc Miljak made the award-winning “Before You Wake Up” by accompanying Janez Tolar, a fellow Slovenian and accomplished landscape photographer on one of his photo expeditions.

In the short film, Tolar, who believes in “waking the sun up” sets out in the early hours of the day and pushes himself on through the harsh, but spectacular valleys and mountainsides on his quest to capture those perfect photographic moments. The videographer’s camera not only plays the part of the silent observer, but also faithfully reveals Tolar’s inspiring philosophy about photography and life.

The resulting short film is as breathtaking as the photographs shot by Tolar himself.

Philadelphia-based sculptor Stacey Lee Webber shared some images of her latest sculptures made with found materials and old coins.

Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Webber’s works are a joyous, hands-on tribute to her blue-collar lineage. She hand-cuts, bends and melds coins, screws and other found materials into beautiful objects worthy of admiration. As a matter of fact, I was quite astonished to find that some of the tools in her “The Craftsmen Series” were made only with pennies.

From her site:

I cherish working with found materials whose history is physically evident.  Imagine a copper penny lying on a sewer grate.  On that stamped coin there are dents, scratches, a dull patina, and a worn down Abraham Lincoln.  Each of these inconsistencies is evidence that it has been passed through the hands of countless people. When that penny is picked up and used in a sculpture the new object is layered with rich stories of struggle and triumph.

Webber’s sculptures will be on show at the 2015 American Craft Council Show in Baltimore from February 18-22, 2015. You can visit her site to check out more of her sculptures, jewelry and vessels. You can also buy her jewelry or order a custom piece at her online store
