A side-project she enjoys and that the rest of the internet has been enjoying lately, too, is using makeup to turn her own face into the face of a celebrity or famous character — usually an old male who’s done some hard living. She jokes…

I LOVE to look old and drugged out!!

And she is really good at it…

This Artist Creates His Exquisite Masterpieces Without Even Touching Them

Oct 10, 2014 By Abraham 0

Artist Jordan Mang-osan is a pyrographer. And if you’ve never heard of pyrography, you can probably still deduce its meaning — writing with fire. Or, in many cases, drawing.

The most common utensil for artists in this genre is a woodburning tool, but Mang-osan has decided to practice this tedious art even more tediously, making each piece all the more impressive.

He sits in the sun with a magnifying glass and focuses the light shining down on him through the glass onto a sheet of wood until the wood begins to blacken. As he patiently directs the light, beautiful pointillist images begin to emerge…

British Cyclist Rides 212 Miles in a Day. Look at the Perfectly Meta Shape of His Route…

Oct 9, 2014 By Joey White 0

When David Taylor headed out for a bicycle ride several weeks ago around New Forest National Park and Bournemouth, England, he was determined to ride more miles that Saturday than most of us will ride in this year.

But Taylor’s goal wasn’t simply to take on a refreshing 212-mile bike ride. When his journey was finished 13 hours later, a map of his route showed that the cyclist had drawn an enormous bicycle on the surface of southern England…

Bike Ride

Via: Voices

Though the intrepid cyclist said he took several wrong turns along the way, the rest of us are none the wiser. At this scale, of course it appears to be a rudimentary sketch of a bicycle drawn with a non-dominant hand, but given that his “canvas” was hundreds of miles of hilly roads and his medium was a GPS-tracked bicycle, this is quite possibly the most remarkable drawing of a bike ever.

All we can do is tip our hat to Taylor and hope this is just the first of many more land sketches from him.

If the women of Disney all got together for a costume party, what other characters would they go as?

How to make tree bark haunt your dreams using only a mirror

Sep 29, 2014 By Abraham 0

Trees aren’t scary, right? Wrong.

It turns out that they are full of terrifying ghouls and goblins…if you hold mirrors up to them in the right spots. And photographer Elido Turco is an expert in finding where on a tree these hair-raisingly awesome faces will emerge.

For a series entitled “Dream Creatures,” he photographed trees during his walks in the woods, and then mirrored the photos on his computer bringing the trees to life — fascinatingly frightening life.

Here is just a selection from the series…
