Imagine if you were an alien species intent on conquering the earth by force. Now, you might just appear over the various capital cities of the world and wait for your countdown to get to zero or you might, being a little timid of the explosive force that you are about to unleash, wish to do it from a safe distance. What you would need to look for, then, is a handy bull's-eye – on the bull's-eye that is the Earth itself. Look no further, alien invader.
Okay here is something different. Cottages houses like what we feature today have been romanticized since the early fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel and have a way of infinitely reminding us of gingerbread houses, and cookies, and sugar! What makes a cottage so distinctive from other small homes is its dark thatched roof, and the way it envelops the cottage like melted cheese. (funny how cottage cheese looks nothing like this) These homes were traditionally built by a waterfront and made out of logs or other natural materials. Also known as a cabin, they were used as a way of modest country living, but are now more popular as weekend and summer homes for city dwellers who are looking to get away.

Interesting and very rare photographs, you may never see. The first McDonald’s. Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.
After you've seen the imaginative work of John Kenn, I bet you'll never see post-it notes the same way again. As his full-time job, Kenn writes and directs television shows for children. When he finds the time, he draws these dark and surreal stories of monsters, trolls and children in precarious situations. (Can't you just imagine him drawing these in a dark study, hunched over in a chair?) Kenn wonderfully calls his art "a little window into a different world." Notice all the small lines and intricate details!

This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar , artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room , is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12.
Jan 10, 2011 Serena Malyon, an illustrator in her third year at the Alberta College of Art & Design, has taken the classics works of Vincent Van Gogh and added a contemporary twist. Using Photoshop, Serena has added the ’tilt-shift’ effect to Van Gogh’s paintings, providing a fresh perspective on these masterpieces.
