A very gutsy build

by Iain

We’ve already seen the internal anatomy of a mini-fig, so I guess the innards of a brick-built figure was the next logical step. This version by Flickr member umamen comes complete with articulated joints, flex-tube veins and arteries, and helpfully color-coded organs. Can you name them all?

Nele Azevedo’s Army of Melting Ice Sculptures

by Caro
Her art only lasts a matter of seconds. Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo has been labeled a street artist, sculptor, and monument designer best known for her "melting men". Her ice sculptures of thousands of faceless tiny people have been staged on stairways all over the world. They are part of her "Minimum Monument" Project, or anti-monument as she sometimes calls it, an ongoing series that has toured to Brazil, Havana, Tokyo, Paris, Firenze and Berlin since 2001.

Random quote from Borat -- no html parsing

by benjabean1
$ curl -s "http://smacie.com/randomizer/borat.txt" | shuf -n 1 -

Turns out smacie.com has a text file containing every single one of the borat quotes, each one on a newline. This makes it very convenient, as this can be done without any sed-parsing, and uses less bandwitdth!

Note that borate quotes are quite offensive, much more so than "fortunes-off"!

Freya Jobbins’s “Plastics.”

Fascinating sculptures by Australian sculptor Freya Jobbins.  These works are created from disassembling plastic dolls and then reassembling them as complex, beautiful and also somewhat nightmarish sculptures.  You can see more of Freya’s work below.

Star Wars's Darth Vader + Marvel Comics's Dr. Doom + Religious Iconography = ???

by Nick Curtis / Trust Pigs
Sket-One's "Our Father" sculpture, the piece of lowbrow art that mingles religious iconography with the visage of Star Wars's Darth Vader, is being released as the ultra-limited "Doom Vader Version," which incorporates the coloring of Marvel Comics villain Dr. Doom into the mix. These resin case objets d'art, limited to a mere 5 pieces worldwide, stand two feet tall (24-inches!) and weigh a massive 10 pounds. Each one has been hand-painted and is available right now to pre-order in Sket-One's online shop for $1800 apiece.

This must be the quirkiest Lego set ever made

We finally have some better images of just about all of the recently leaked 2015 Lego City sets. The most important of these is the above Service Truck (60073) which comes complete with a portable toilet—which is even weirder than Speedo minifig. There are some other great sets as well.

Short film: Machines keep on fighting a war even though everyone is dead

Short film: Machines keep on fighting a war even though everyone is dead

Here's an uncomfortable vision of the future that'll make your soul tremble a little bit: what if we built automated machines to fight our wars for us? What if those machines killed everyone on the planet? And what happens when the war is over and everyone is dead but those machines are still programmed to fight?

This visualization of server traffic is like the coolest game of Pong

Taiga is "a free project management platform for startups, developers, and designers." After being mentioned by Hacker News their servers got blasted with traffic, which they turned into this cool visualization that it like a game of Pong played by a zillion players against one computer.

Bartkira: Exhibition Book

by Jeff

Bartkira_book-01

When I first wrote about the incredible Bartkira project (here), over 300 artists were already signed on to help recreate every page of Akira using Simpsons characters. By the end, it took 768 artists, each drawing five pages, to complete the entire six volumes of Katsuhiro Otomo’s comic masterpiece.

Floating World Comics has just released a 96-page exhibition book, including 80 pages from the project, as well as 16 full-coluor gallery pages. Order the book here.

Finger crossed that one day we see the release of the entire thing. More images below.

FIRST LOOK: Feature Film Sign Painters. Premieres Today.

Since founding the Wooster Collective more than ten years ago, some of our favorite artists featured on the website have been trained in the art of sign painting.  

Today, the highly anticipated feature film SIGN PAINTERS, directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, is now available on iTunes and for download and streaming worldwide through the film's website signpaintersfilm.com

The film explores and celebrates the 150 year-old American history of the artform through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country including Ira Coyne, Bob Dewhurst, Keith Knecht, Norma Jeane Maloney and Stephen Powers.

We're thrilled to be involved with SIGN PAINTERS and are releasing it through BOND/360, the film distribution arm of Marc's firm, BOND Strategy and Influence.

They mostly come out at night, mostly...

by Iain

H. R. Giger has passed away unexpectedly, at age 74. For the few that do not recognize the name, Giger was a surrealist artist and sculptor who applied his unique “machine/human hybrid” style of work to the design of the iconic monsters from the Alien movie franchise.

Regular readers will know that many LEGO builders have recreated creatures, scenes and vehicles from the Alien movies over the years. So it seems fitting for us to celebrate Giger’s life with some Alien-themed LEGO builds. The two shown here, by the Arvo brothers, are no doubt familiar to many of you.


But instead of reviewing a lot of older builds, I’d like to show you some completely new ones! Flickr member Missing Brick has carefully recreated memorable scenes from the 2nd movie in the franchise using customized minifigs, huge sets, creative lighting, and vehicle designs adapted from the work of fellow builders.

Click below the fold to see them all. WARNING: What follows is several pages of glorious LEGO Aliens movie scene-porn! Revel in it at your own peril, and remember to nuke the site from orbit afterwards. It’s the only way to be sure.

“Hey Bishop, do the thing with the knife!”

“Well I can operate that loader over there…”

The marines prepare to get their asses handed to them by a bunch of aliens…

“Stop yer grinnin’ and drop yer linen!”

“I’m telling you man, they’re inside the perimeter!”

“There must be an explanation, something we missed…”
    

SCUTTLE SCUTTLE SCUTTLE SCUTTLE

“You always were an asshole, Gorman”

“Hold on Newt, we’re coming for you!”

Punch it, Bishop!

This Lettuce Umbrella Should Count As a Serving of Veggies

This Lettuce Umbrella Should Count As a Serving of Veggies

If the thought of putting anything green in your mouth leaves you gagging, this adorable and remarkably life-like lettuce umbrella might help slowly acclimate you to accepting vegetables into your life. And it probably goes without saying that it will keep you dry as well.
