    whos the winner?

  • lapetitefaon

    WOW! I LOVE THIS PROJECT! My absolute favorite is the fish and clam shells its so oddly perfect and beautiful! What a wonderful still life! Human skate deck also very cool, and the ants!

  • Jean-Luc

    wow, I’m really surprised nobody made one completeley out of converse shoes….dammit i should have done it

  • Hub

    The amount and variety of foodrelated skateboards is insane and awesome. 😀

  • Sooo many amazing entries. I love the community that has gathered around your site jeff.

  • love the fish & the sushi
    and yes
    all of them
    mine didn’t seem to make it in
    🙁
    here it is: http://bit.ly/wingprayer
    🙂

    • i never received this entry, but i’ve added you now

  • tina

    Ants video is sick-cool! Awesome ending.

  • Some really clever ideas here, the banana skateboard is classic, the moulding of it works perfectly. Lots of food ideas, talk about ‘food for thought’. The converse turned into a skateboard is really clever too, something so obvious that appears others over looked.

  • Digiono

    I LOVE the one with the kid holding the plank-board. I really get the feeling that the makers did it just to have fun, you know? Why isn’t that guy on here? So GOOD!

Artist Draws on Pieces of Trash and Leaves Them for People to Find

Wenyi13Wenyi15

Wenyi traverses the streets of Dali, Yunnan Province in China, picking up discarded scraps and drawing on them as part of a personal mission to get people to see art in everyday life. After each sketch is completed he leaves it somewhere more visible but still in the exact spot where the original piece of garbage was collected. See more images below.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
