fantasy-tavern-top

I could look at this piece by the artist known on DeviantArt as Zen Master all day long. Apparently, it was done as a commission for the Storm Crow Alehouse, which seems like the closest thing you’ll get to visiting this fantasy tavern in real life.

Check out the full image below. Can you spot all of the characters and references? [click to continue…]

Artist Anastassia Elias specializes in crafting scenes within absurdly tiny spaces—like cups or empty toilet paper rolls. The incredibly detailed scenes are also backlit, and the effect adds an element of depth that’s pretty astounding. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Italian pastry chef Matteo Stucchi takes playing with food to a whole new level by transforming desserts into mini construction zones where workers build artistic monuments to calories and sugar.

Stucchi also used sweets to imagine how inhabitants of candyland kick back, showing mini figures riding edible ferris wheels, going pastry fishing and paddling on a stream of chocolate. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Imgur user “MymlanOhlin” fashioned this DIY “Alabuster” craft project that will give your wine bottles a skeletal Halloween vibe.

She also gave the world a step-by-step tutorial of the creative process, which involves printing or tracing an anatomically correct skeleton hand, modelling each individual bone with clay and assembling them on a paper backing for easy flexing around the bottle, while a clay skull is created directly on the container itself.

As you’ll see below, the process requires more time, tools and talent than most of us possess. [click to continue…]

Laleh of Jacob’s Food Diaries has taken to creating a daily serving of food art for her son. Using a variety of colorful and healthy ingredients including whole grains and vegetables, Laleh stacks and arranges food into a bevy of well-known characters.

Characters from Disney/Pixar and Sesame Street are well represented and masterfully created. We also assume that they are delicious. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Ukrainian artist Hanna Dovhan crafts adorable wool sculptures. Many of them are cartoon-style veggies, eggs, and fruits and are designed to function as pairs (which makes them even cuter). Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

ghidora-top

Everyone knows that KFC is the restaurant of choice for artistic inspiration. Case in point: this sculpture of Godzilla‘s three-headed nemesis King Ghidorah made entirely from KFC chicken bones.

The incredible work was created by Tokyo Twitterer and “bone artist” @honeoyaji. Needless to say, it required the consumption of a lot of chicken. How much you ask? Find out in the pics below. [click to continue…]

dad-post-it-notes-school-lunchbox-rob-biddulph-76

For the last three years, illustrator Rob Biddulph has drawn fantastic Post-It note cartoons for his daughter Poppy, and hid them in her lunchbox before she went off to school.

Rob noted to Metro that it all started on the day when Poppy transitioned from nursery to primary school. He drew a fun little lunch reminder cartoon and “That evening she asked what I was going to draw for the following day. 600 post-its later we’re still going.” Biddulph burned through her favorite cartoon characters quickly but, thankfully, Poppy’s going through a Star Wars phase, so he has plenty to work with.
