Illustrator Finds A Creative Way To Spend Time On A Train

During our commute, most of us will resort to listening to music, reading, or staring at the window and pondering the meaning of life. Illustrator and blogger October Jones (real name Joe Butcher) , however, has come up with a creative and somewhat more unusual way to spend his time – he draws new heads for his fellow commuters. Jones, who is also the guy behind the hilarious and popular Texts From Dog Tumblr (and book), draws cartoon faces on sticky notes that he matches up with the bodies of unsuspecting commuters on the train with him. The cartoon faces’ expressions, however, take it from good to great – Mickey mouse grinding his teeth and a tired-looking Winnie the Pooh who forgot to shave seem right at home on Jones’ Monday-morning commute. He then shares the doodles with his Twitter followers, which he’s got about 72,000 of. Try this next time you’re on a bus, train or subway, and share the results!

Chinese Sculptor Spends 4 Years Sculpting World’s Longest Wooden Masterpiece, Guinness world record !



When you hear the word “masterpiece,” you most likely think of some famous painting painted in the 15th or 16th century like the Mona Lisa. So it’s always nice to know that artistic masterpieces are being created even today. Take, for example, Chinese artist Zheng Chunhui’s breathtaking 12.2-meter-long (over 40 ft) wooden carving – it is a modern masterpiece of wood sculpture.

There are lots of things about Chunhui’s amazing sculpture that make it unforgettable. It has entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest continuous wooden sculpture in the world – it was carved out of a single tree trunk. Between its size and its intricate detailing, it’s no surprise that it took Chunhui four years to complete it. The sculpture features buildings, trees, mountains, rivers, boats, bridges, clouds, and even 550 little individual hand-carved people.


Chunhui’s sculpture takes a slightly new twist on the Chinese tradition of enriching and adding on to ancient masterpieces. The scene it depicts is based on “Along the River During the Qinming Festival,” a long scroll painting by Chinese artist Zhang Zeduan that is almost 1,000 years old and depicts the lives of both the rich and the poor during the Qingming Festival. Other chinese artists throughout the ages have reinterpreted and added on to this work with cultural elements from their own centuries.




Javier Pérez Turns Everyday Objects into Whimsical Illustrations

 Ecuador-based illustrator and art director Javier Pérez has been posting a fun series of photo illustrations over on his Instagram account. The simple ideas mix everyday objects with line drawings, creating balloons out of grapes, porcupine quills out of nails, or light bulbs out of balloons. These are a few of my favorites but you can see much more here
