As you may have heard, according to Mayan prophecy today should be our last day on Earth. I didn’t believe it… until I check the weather forecast above.
Here’s your definitive guide to Christmas this year, condensed neatly into this easy to understand 100% Christmas clothes label. Please read instructions before proceeding…
I just can’t get enough of these awesomely huge gallery installations by David DiMichele. I would so love to see him do something in the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern in Southbank, London.
If I told you that this image was HAND DRAWN with only DOTS, would you believe me? I’ve been telling myself that for the last hour and I still don’t quite believe it… but it’s true, this was painstakingly hand drawn with 2.1 MILLION dots over 138 HOURS.
What’s potentially even more fascinating is that the subject of the artwork is Benjamin Kyle, a man from the states who woke up after an accident with no memory whatsoever. He doesn’t know who he is, who he was, how he got there, what happened, or anything.

Follow his remarkable story in the captivating video above which see’s him try, try again, fail and fail again and again to get a social security number just so he can work and get off the streets.
Loving these pieces by artist Russ Mills with a nice street art style. I’d love to have any of these printed on a t-shirt.
Check out this pretty tasty looking chandelier made by Kevin Champeny. It’s made from 3,000 hand-crafted acrylic bears so unfortunately you can’t drunkenly devour it when you get home from the pub.
Nice bit of micro photography of soap bubbles up close from Jason Tozer. They look like some sort of hippy-ish psychedelic acid-fuelled view of the solar system.
When Yaz and I were sailing Mexico earlier this year, we regularly met artists who’d balance rocks in precarious ways in the hope of some tips from tourists. These works by Michael Grab have reminded me of it and I thought you might enjoy it too. I wouldn’t fancy dropping one of those boulders on my foot!
This is the story, with some really great footage, of some Light Emitting Dudes freerunning around Bangkok at night covered in LED bulbs.

Yes, that is a life size painting of an elephant – the next best thing to having a real life elephant in your apartment I’d say. Oh, and yes, that’s a pencil drawing below. Pencil.
If you’re a regular reader of this bloggy blog, you may have guessed that I love art. You may also have guessed that I love Africa (and travel in general). So when you put the two together, you get an enormous amount of love for Richard Symond‘s incredibly life-like drawings and watercolours of predominantly African (minus a Bengal Tiger or two) art.
If you love these paintings and drawings as much as me, you’ll love the fact that you can buy signed and hand numbered large prints for as little as £115 including postage and packaging. If you’re stuck for what to get me for Christmas *hint*…
