Amazing Art Works Based On Children’s Drawings

The photos you are about to see are part of the “The Monster Engine Project“, created by Dave DeVries. It includes a book, a demonstration, lecture and a gallery exhibition. The Monster Engine is based on the idea of creating realistic paintings from children’s drawings. It all turned out to be a great success and an innovative concept. Sometimes artists just happen to get to one point where their imagination stops. But not children.

Really Roughing It: Five Hotels Built From Unexpected Materials You've heard about ice hotels--the one in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden is probably the most famous, re-built every year from 3,300 tons of ice--but what about mud, salt, or mangrove? Adam Roberts writes in The Economist's Intelligent Life magazine about five of the world's weirdest places to bunk, from the Hotel Djenne Djenno in Mali (like the rest of the town of Djenne, it's made all out of mud) to the Hotel Palacio de Sal on the Bolivian salt flats, advertised as the "best salt hotel in the world." (Don't lick the walls, he says.) But the list of bizarrely built hotels is long and strange. Name a material, and there's probably a hotel out there that incorporates it. Trees?

Altered Thrift Store Art Unknown, via Reddit. Banksy, via Flickr user goldenticket. It’s a simple idea: Find some bad art, whether original or a print, for a song at a thrift store, then modify it to make, if not “better art,” then at least something that’s more entertaining to look at. (Is it the same thing? Rashad Alakbarov Paints with Shadows and Light Artist Rashad Alakbarov from Azerbaijan uses suspended translucent objects and other found materials to create light and shadow paintings on walls. The best part is that you can easily create something similar at home – all you need is one or two lamps and some items from your desk. The stunning light painting below, made with an array of colored airplanes has found its way to exhibitions like the Fly to Baku at De Pury Gallery in London. Rashad adds, “Above the cloud with its shadow is the star with its light.

Books transformed into visual art Origami artists have been transforming paper into varied, visually striking works of art since centuries. However, an entirely different wagon of artists has stretched it across the paper and is creating the same magic with books. Had these books not been morphed into unusual artworks, you might have seen them bedecking some landfill, a ditch or a waste-bin. Who knows? Anyhow, after passing through some skilled hands, they have gotten more appealing than they were ever. Since seeing is believing, hit the jump to see a full list of book art awaiting your approval: Imagine Pot Was Legal. How Would You Brand It? Woeful state budgets have relit the long-burning debate about pot legalization---couldn't California rescue itself by making weed legal, then taxing it? Meanwhile, more than 40% of Americans now favor legalization--which is the highest portion since the 1980s; Nate Silver, at FiveThirtyEight, has watched the trends and estimates that popular support will become overwhelming in 15 years time. So Print, the hoary graphic-design magazine, posed a challenge to four top designers: How should the package of legal weed actually look? Each of them took a radically different approach. Lust, a graphic design practice in Amsterdam, tackled the controversy of the product head-on---albeit in a very dry, very arch manner. They opted to cover the package in infographics about weed, and its effects--which they claim would create an anti-brand brand, and also, presumably, turn the product into something more neutral than the demon weed.
