Seinfeld wielding nunchucks!

Possibly the most ridiculous, and simultaneously awesome, caricatures in existence. Brandon Bird likes to draw celebrities in outrageous poses or stick them in bizarre situations, both to great comic effect. The John Tesh illustration (after the jump) is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

    Hahahahah…this guy is genius (and talented too). I love the Harrison Ford/Magic the Gathering one.

    Playing Magic the Gather on a regular basis is something I can definitely relate to.

    Uh-oh. Another obscure sound-effects/art/pop culture reference to make at cocktail parties…
    INT. LUXURY PENTHOUSE. NIGHT.
    NEW AGE MUSIC blares through the HI FI SYSTEM. Sound of BREAKING GLASS o.s: “TESH!”
    CUT TO John Tesh.
    Mary Hart exclaims, “You’re cut off!”

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
