Giant Oil Paintings of Instagram-Famous Pigeon by Belgian Artist Adele Renault


Belgian painter Adele Renault’s large-scale portraits are impressive enough on their own. However, the story behind the subject of her latest series (currently on view at Havas Annex in Chicago) is worth noting. Artist George Keaton and photographer Mariah Naella found an egg on their kitchen counter after workers accidentally destroyed a pigeon nest while fixing their windows. The egg started hatching and before they knew it the couple was raising a little bird. Even after being released back into the wild, the pigeon remained a fixture in the couple’s neighbourhood, and his development featured prominently on Instagram where Renault has since drawn inspiration.

I like that these verge on photorealism but still have a unique style to them. Check out more images below!

LOL of the Day: Guy Plays Music to the Exact Tune of Angry Grandpa Yelling and Destroying PS4


After I shared this EPIC VIDEO, a member of our Facebook group Pedro Piccinini (thank you sir!) pointed me to this glorious Instagram account: @theMonoNeon. Dywane MonoNeon Thomas Jr. plays music to the exact tune of random internet videos, everything from stand up comedy sets to scenes from famous films. People like this are what I love most about the Internet.

To really get a sense for what I’m talking about watch this video of an angry grandpa destroying a PS4 accompanied by music from MonoNeon below.

Best of Instagram: Week 23

It’s been way too long since I did one of these! Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post. As always, I am trying to feature photographers with smaller followings and making a conscious effort to feature photography that isn’t the heavily filtered style that has become synonymous with Instagram.

If you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post, hashtag your photos #onbooooooom. You can also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

The Most Creative Skateboarding on Instagram: Daewon Song [10 Videos]


Daewon Song is a skateboard legend (and was pretty much already a legend when I was a kid) and yet somehow his Instagram is more fresh and creative than pretty much everyone else’s out there. I wouldn’t call this a top 10 because his entire feed is insane but here are 10 clips of the most creative skateboarding being shared to Instagram right now.

Included here are things like a 360 double flip on a board without wheels, bearings only, a late flip with the help of a friend, and some manual wizardry. Whether you are a skateboarder or not this is pure creative inspiration. Enjoy.
