Architecture Student Bought a School Bus and Turned It Into Cozy Mobile Home As a graduate architecture student, Hank was tired of seeing architecture projects that never left the drawing board. So when it came time to come up with a final project, Hank did what was obviously the only logical solution – he bought an old school bus and, together with his brother and a friend, spent 14 weeks converting it into a modern, well-designed mobile home that can host up to 12 people complete with beds, a kitchen, a bathroom and two skylights. Most of the furniture in the bus is modular, so it can be moved, stowed away or converted to different functions. The queen-sized bed can be made into a seating or dining area, and most of these modular pieces of furniture also include storage space. The kitchen consists of a pump sink with plans for an on-board refrigerator and gas cook stove in the future. Hank designed his modern take on the RV as an impulsive, last-ditch effort to come up with something for his graduate thesis project.

Rubén Belloso Adorna We’ve all had our eyes fooled by artists with photorealistic techniques such as Pedro Campos’ picture perfect oil paintings, Paul Cadden’s hyperrealistic pencil drawings, Samuel Silva’s ballpoint pen drawing, and Nathan Welsh’s city paintings, but never before had we seen it done with chalk…until now! Rubén Belloso Adorna of Seville, Spain creates enormous portraits that are so detailed, you would not believe they are not photographs, but they are actually drawings made with chalk pastels. You can see the true magnitude of each drawing when you see the photos of Adorna working on them, yet even when you zoom in and look closely they still look like a high definition photo.
