I’d like to invite you to look at the picture above this text. Just really look at it. It’s the work of Emilia Forstreuter, by the way. Did you know it’s made of paper? It’s true! That’s paper. Isn’t that neat. Imagine the patience it must take to so carefully razor-cut a piece of paper like that. It makes you think about the meticulousness of it all, doesn’t it? About the “why” as opposed to the “what”. How very magical.
Andrey Trofimchuk has designed an SUV for Maserati. Good for him. Bear in mind, no one has asked him to do this. As far as I know, Russian designer Trofimchuk isn’t associated with the Italian company. Maserati has expressed no intention of using his design, or even producing an SUV at all. This is just something he did.
A good Halloween costume should be many things: Unique, creative, personal and, what the hell, we’ll give extra points for scary. Canadian 3d artist Eric Testroete hit every criteria when he decided he’d go out as a big-headed version of himself. Anyone who played Nintendo 64 can tell Testorete was inspired by “big head mode” (which, without fail, makes me want to play Goldeneye), but the day I get passed on the street by some dead-eyed pixelated cranial monstrosity? Those, my friends, are the End Times. [ Continue Reading ]
Cyrill Clunev is a Russian artist who sees the world through a trapper keeper from 1996. That’s an obscure image, to be sure, but Clunev’s abstract works are reminiscent of the same kind of computer-generated commercial post-post-modernism you want accessorizing your homework as an 11-year-old on the go. Or maybe that was just me. [ Continue Reading ]
Oh, I had to jump on this.
I’ve never heard of Gigantor, but apparently it was a Japanese cartoon from the ’60′s whose popularity brought it state-side. The series focused on the hijinks of a twelve-year-old boy who controls an enormous robot named Gigantor, despite having a human character named Dick [ Continue Reading ]
SEMA, which for those of you not in the know is a car convention aimed at tuners and customizers, recently unveiled the Ghepardo, a kind of amber Frankenstein with the body of a 2002 Camaro and the brain of a 2002 Corvette. It’s a beautiful little vehicle, like something Optimus Prime would keep around as an under-qualified, underdressed secretary, until you open it up and climb inside, at which point the interior is revealed as an aesthetic nightmare and the Transformers simile becomes astoundingly dirty.

Hi there! I’m not actually a mouse, typing away at a keyboard built for a far larger creature and demonstrating a surprising command of grammar for a rodent. I know, hard to believe, right? It’s true! I’m a real life human being, just like many of you!
My name is Evan, which is kind of the consolation prize of names; Mike was taken, but at least I didn’t wind up with Chaz. I’m from Boston originally but I live in Brooklyn now. I really like movies, like more than a friend. And that is all there is to know about Mister Mouse!
