Potpourri [6]

An overview of recent images that would have ended up in my parallel blog Art's Potpourri (now stopped). Clicking the icons in the left side of the table takes you to the picture on the site where I found it in a new window. The text includes a link to the site.

Behind the mask. Alex Solis is the illustrator behind the series Icons Unmasked: cartoon-style portraits that reveal unknown “identities” of famous pop culture characters (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Can-tata. This image put a smile on my face. Somebody created this scene as a display somewhere in the Netherlands - the link is not more specific (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Middle East censorship. Some hilarious examples of images of album covers and advertisements that were photoshopped to meet the censorship standards of the Middle East (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
web site
Polluted water popsicles. Created by design students in Taiwan, who collected samples from 100 different polluted water sources in Taiwan, and froze them into popsicles (Remarkable Art). First seen here.
web site
Octopus teapot. Operating on the fence between design and art, ceramic artist Keiko Masumoto creates tea pots shaped like an octopus. Special and beautiful (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
Hairy chest swimsuit. Ladies, if you want no man paying attention to you on the beach, this is the ideal swim suit. It comes with the pattern of a hairy male chest and belly (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
web site
Off the wall. Amazing pictures taken by Paul de Graaf show how a graffiti-infested wall now contains many layers of paint after 30 years (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
D and G Siciliano heels. Marketed by Dolce and Gabbana, these 5000 $ heels are possibly the ugliest shoes you'll ever see - against stiff competition as well (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
