Artist João Carvalho, a.k.a. J Desenhos, draws notebook pages, which might seem boring until you see how he manages to twist and turn these notebook pages into amazing 3D drawings. And he’s only 15 years old!
Carvalho bends the blue “notebook lines” that he draws across the page and then adds shading to complete his drawings. The resulting characters and shapes seems to pop out of or even through the 3D notebook page. The talented youngster also shares other artists’ work on his Facebook page, so take a look!
We’d like to thank Carvalho for telling Bored Panda about his work!
Seth Casteel, the New York- and L.A.-based photographer who became internet-famous with his infectiously happy diving dog photo series, has taken things to the next level. His new “Underwater Puppies” photo series, which will be published as a book on September 16th, captures adorable puppies as they dive into a pool.
There’s no doubt that taking this photo series must have been heaps of fun, but it wasn’t all fun and games. “To create this series, I taught swimming lessons to over 1500 puppies, building their confidence in the water and helping them develop safety and survival skills,” says Casteel. “Most of the puppies only swam for a few minutes and were not ready for pictures, but some decided to start jumping in on their own and chase after toys!“
Seth Casteel’s book, Underwater Puppies, will be on sale at Barnes & Noble.
A poetic and artful umbrella, Komorebi is based on a Japanese expression that approximately translates to “sunshine filtering through foliage.”
With a creative eye, the casual observer can espy characters or faces in the everyday objects all around us. French artist Gilbert Legrand takes this a step further by painting and otherwise modifying totally mundane objects to turn them into cute characters and give them new life.
Legrand lets his active imagination soar by painting small details onto these everyday objects to help us see them the way he does. With the addition of a face and maybe some arms and legs, a paintbrush can become a mangled fox, a hinge can become a shady salesman, and a juicer becomes a woman emerging from a pool.
Hopefully, Legrand’s wildly imaginative creations will help you find the fun characters hidden all around you!

Behold, the first ever elephant selfie! Scott Brierley was admiring the elephants at a safari park outside of Worcestershire, England when he unexpectedly dropped his phone.
Brierley thought the phone was a goner, but after a few days it was returned with this glorious photo in his camera roll.
