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.

Photographs of the world reflected in bubbles

I’ve always found there to be something intriguing about the distortion of fish eye photography, and Tom Storm‘s photographs of bubble reflections are quite the opposite but with the same intrigue. What do you reckon?

Incredible macro photography of pretty snow flakes close up

If you thought you were cold on the commute to work this morning, spare a thought for how long it must take Russian photographer Andrew Osokin to take these awesome close up macro shots of snow flakes and ice. Pretty neat, eh?

Close-up photography of bubbles that look like planets!

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.

Incredible balanced rock sculptures by Michael Grab

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!

Taking face painting to the next level with Russian models

Check out this neat collaboration from Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan who experimented with face paints and black and white photography to create these wonderful shots.

Stop motion video & time lapse photography of stars

Some real nice time lapse photography of stars taken with a fish eye lens in France. Nice work from Nuit Sacrées who we’ve featured before when we wrote about some awesome photographs of the Northern Lights.

STUNNING photography of India’s railways by Steve McCurry

My all time favourite photographer in the history of the world is Steve McCurry. Why? Just take a look at this series of photographs from India’s railways, that’s why – oh and also because his name is McCurry.

Instagram web profiles introduced at last

Pretty stoked to be seeing, at last, the introduction of web profiles for Instagram. They’ve taken a while to do this and it’s something I’ve been keen on them doing for ages. See mine here and above.
