Impressively Detailed Pen Doodles By Kerby Rosanes. Do you remember those imaginative doodles you used to make in your high school notebook?
Maybe you still make them. But Phillipine-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes creates doodles (as he calls them) that are probably several orders of magnitude greater than any you or I have ever made. His most recent work is called “Time Guardian.” This stunning portrait of an owl features an unexpected twist – the whole thing is drawn out of minutely detailed gears, cogs and other mechanical bits, giving the soaring owl an intricate steampunk look.

Artist Alex Chinneck's optical illusion makes Covent Garden building appear to have broken free. This is the stunning optical illusion that appears to make a building at one of London's busiest tourist districts hover in mid-air.
To passers-by, it looks as though a section of the historic market building in Covent Garden has broken free from its foundations and is floating unaided, high above them. But in reality, the display, which imitates the architecture in the area, is a complicated piece of technical wizardry which took months to create.

10Steps.SG - Photoshop Tutorials and Resources. Music and Sound Vibrations 3D Printed Into Ceramic Vessels. All images via Studio van Broekhoven Bouncing rhythmically to a deep beat, Studio van Broekhoven’s 3D printer produces ceramic vessels scored by sound.
The objects spins as clay is applied in response to the amplified noise, forging visual markings into the clay by way of audio wavelengths. The project, “Solid Vibration” was produced by spatial sound designer Ricky van Broekhoven and designer Olivier van Herpt, who have been co-producing the objects that appear almost like woven baskets. The project developed out of the collaborators’ combined wish to host Broekhoven’s “noisescapes” as solidified objects that could physically represent his abstract tones. For each of the vessels, a specially constructed speaker rig is mounted below the printing platform to emit a low sound that will influence the printing.
