Magic is real, sometimes.
With delicate lines, dots, and geometric patterns, L.A. tattoo artist Dr. Woo creates some of the coolest tattoos we’ve seen in quite a while. The 33-year-old artist first started experimenting with tattoos when he was only 13 and would later work as a fashion buyer and designer before he apprenticed with Mark Mahoney at the Shamrock Social Club where he’s now based.
Woo is now one of the most in-demand tattoo artists in L.A. with a waitlist well over six months. There’s often a line out the door of people just making appointments in-person (a professor recently showed up with an entire class in tow). You can join a half million others and follow him on Instagram. All photos courtesy the artist. (via Quipsologies, My Modern Met, The New York Times)

In her latest series of paintings, Barcelona-based artist and illustrator Cinta Vidal Agulló defies gravity and architectural conventions to create encapsulated scenes of intersecting perspectives. Painted with acrylic on wood panels, Vidal refers to the paintings as “un-gravity constructions” and says that each piece examines how a person’s internal perspective of life may not match up with the reality around them. The intersecting planes on many of her paintings are somewhat reminiscent of drawings by M.C. Escher, where every angle and available surface is inhabited by colorful characters going about their daily lives. She shares in a new interview with Hi-Fructose:
With these un-gravity constructions, I want to show that we live in one world, but we live in it in very different ways – playing with everyday objects and spaces, placed in impossible ways to express that many times, the inner dimension of each one of us does not match the mental structures of those around us. The architectural spaces and day-to-day objects are part of a metaphor of how difficult it is to fit everything that shapes our daily space: our relationships, work, ambitions, and dreams.

If you pet it, it will grow
Uno de los alicientes de tener una pecera es poder decorarla con diversos elementos para hacerla más atractiva para sus dueños y menos aburrida para los peces. Lo más habitual es añadir cantos rodados, algas, rocas, troncos… y si eso algún adorno que resulte apropiado, como unas ruinas, un ánfora, etc. Pero siendo lo suficientemente friki, ¿por qué no hacerlo con elementos de videojuegos? Así lo ha hecho este fan de Zelda y de Mario, que empleando básicamente bloques de LEGO se ha montado dos peceras muy decorativas y absolutamente geniales que resultan un bonito homenaje a dos míticas sagas.
