“A Ten Million Dollar Toy” is the latest art project from SpY, the Madrid based street art and graffiti artist.
He sent this picture of a “kidnapped” bunny to the Toy2R factory, along with a ransom note for ten million dollars.

The imagery in Greg Ferris’ layered collages is a curious combination of the organic and the inorganic, the modern and the traditional. His art explores the areas where unrelated objects intersect, and how, in doing so, they affect each other.
Snip from an interview:
In a work of art, I position objects in ways that will affect their neighboring bodies, like musical notes create intervals. The images and their placements express my interpretation of topics such as science and tradition, which I’ve been taught are more complicated ways of saying that at the center of the universe there’s two tiny bits of something bumping against each other, and it goes on much the same from there..
Besides being a talented artist, Ferris is also a musician and an avid skateboarder.
I guess I will always have a morbid fascination with graveyards and cemeteries.

There are the usual Bonsai hobbyists, and then there are the enormously-gifted practitioners of the ancient Japanese technique. Mario Komsta belongs to the latter category.

I just love retro typography.
The folks at Pornographics Studio have compiled this lovely gallery of vintage adult film logos.
They also made this short video using the same logos and opening titles(NSFW audio and visuals).
Ultra desirable handcrafted Mimushi wooden figurines.
The limited edition collectibles are made from wood and wheat straw, which are acquired (and immediately replaced) from government regulated plantations in the Amazon. As they are painstakingly made by hand, only 80 figurines can be produced in a month by the artists.
