Second Skins: Fashionably Dressed Animals Photographed by Miguel Vallinas When first encountering this body of photographs Madrid-based advertising and industrial photographer Miguel Vallinas it’s easy to view it as a familiar “animals dressed as people” project. But as you look closer you realize it’s quite a bit more than that. Aside from the solid retouching, lighting and overall execution, Vallinas took this anthropomorphic project a bit further and imagined what the fully-realized wardrobe of each animal might look like if it were wearing human clothes. Titled Segundas Pieles (Second Skins), the ongoing series includes some 50+ animals whose personalities seem to be perfectly amplified by their pitch-perfect attire, making the portaits just a bit more human than animal. I’m pretty sure the hipster bird in the cardigan works at a coffee shop by my house. The work is a sister project to another series called simply Pieles where the photographer portrays himself in a wide range of professions.

A 1:60-Scale Boeing 777 Built Entirely from Paper Manilla Folders by Luca Iaconi-Stewart Inspired by high school architecture class where he was assigned to create simple paper models using cut paper manilla folders, San Francisco-based designer Luca Iaconi-Stewart went home to begin construction on an extremely ambitious project: a 1:60 scale reproduction of a Boeing 777 using some of the techniques he learned in class. That was in 2008, when Iaconi-Stewart was just a junior in high school. Unbelievably, the project continues five years later as he works on and off to perfect every aspect of the plane. Relying on detailed schematics of an Air India 777-300ER he found online, he recreates the digital drawings in Adobe Illustrator and then prints them directly onto the paper manilla folders. But everything has to be perfect.

Wire Trees by Kevin Iris In his early 20s, Wisconsin artist Kevin Iris became obsessed with growing small bonsai trees and over time he amassed a miniature forest of over 20 trees in his home. One aspect of shaping bonsai trees is learning how to properly “train” the branches to grow in a certain direction. This is often accomplished by using stiff wires wrapped around the branches to slowly guide them in the right direction. At one point Iris had a particularly stubborn tree nearly encased in wire when he suddenly he could make things a lot easier for himself by removing the tree completely. Years later he’s made dozens of wire trees that have appeared in galleries and juried shows, some of which are even available for sale online. (via lost at e minor)
