Naked Obama and Unicorns

What does a naked Barack Obama have in common with a white unicorn? Apparently they’re best of friends.

At least that’s how Dan Lacey, known as The Painter of Pancakes,  portrays the president of the United States in a series of funny paintings. Some of his works show celebrities like John McCain and Sarah Palin and Obama with pancakes on their heads or covering their intimate areas. Lacey’s art-works are quite unique and, if you want, you can order any of them as an art poster. Just head over to Dan Lacey’s blog and check his portfolio.

The Human Printer

Some people feel images printed by machines have no soul, so they decided to print them themselves, by hand.

That’s right, a group of people called The Human Printer, uses markers to emulate the printing process. This way you no longer have just a soulless copy of a photo, but a new, unique image designed by human hand. You have to hand it to these guys, they have a lot of patience. Members of The Human Printer use computer-created CMYK tones and Black&White to create their works of art.

18 Kids and Counting

The Duggar Familly reminds me of that Steve Martin movie, “Cheaper by the Dozen”. Only this is real life, which makes it less funny and a lot weirder.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar met in 1980 and got married in 1984. It would be 4 years until their first son, Joshua, was born. After that, they decided to use birth control, but Michelle became pregnant and suffered a miscarriage. It was then that they decided to stop using birth control methods and let God decide how many children they would have. So far they have 18 children, 10 boys and 8 girls.

The Duggars are conservative Baptists who raise their children with very little television and monitored internet access. They are educated at home and use a buddy system, in which an older sibling is assigned to a younger one, taking care of him.

The Duggar Familly has its own reality show, on TLC.

Camera Van – The Ultimate Paparazzi-Mobile

You have to be insane or bored out of your mind to cover an entire van with photo cameras, but Harold Blank thinks of it as art.

It all started one night in 1993, when Harold Blank had a dream where he covered his entire van with cameras. When he woke up he thought his dream was an epiphany so he went straight to the store and bought all the cheap cameras he could afford. Shortly after, the Camera Van was born.

Blank likes to drive around the cities and take photos of people. he believes when passers-by see his creation they are under the impression the cameras are all broken, so they act more loosely. That gives him a chance to take some great shots.

The front of the Camera Van is covered with all types of Polaroid cameras, the driver’s side is a mural made out of Kodak Instamatic cameras, the passenger’s side has 32-inch LCDs that look like negative frames. The back of the van has 2 LCDs of kids waving to passers-by while the word “SMILE” sits atop the car, constructed from Kodak point-and-shoot cameras.

Harold Blank’s official site could be harmful to your computer, according to Google, but you can check it out if you wish. I hear he has been driving his Camera Van through Mexico and South America and hasn’t updated his site in over 2 years.

Pennies Make Great Floor Tiles

Some people are literally throwing money on the floor

Like the people that came up with the idea of paving the floor of the Standard Grill, in the Standard Hotel, New York, with thousands of pennies. It looks pretty cool, no doubt about it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if, one day, people got on their knees and tried to steal the coins. After all, this is an economic crisis and every penny counts.

Chinese Squeeze into A Car for Fun and Money

The Chinese know how to have fun and make money at the same time.

During a contest that took place in Nanning, competing teams had to squeeze as many members as they could into a car. They had 3 minutes to get into the car and had to last 10 seconds with all the car doors shut. Not an easy task, but with all that Yoga, I’m sure they managed pretty well. We don’t know how many people fit into that car for the win, but what we do know is the winning team got a prize of 500 yuan. That’s about $73. But who are we kidding, it was never about the money.

Fish-Head Art Smells Fishy

After the photos I’ve seen so far, I can truly say there’s art in everything, even fish heads.

Anne-Catherine Becker-Echivard loves is a very original Berlin-based artist who uses fish heads to create regular works of art. It might be bizarre or funny, but it certainly isn’t easy. The artists uses negative-film cameras and photographs to create the photos you see below, and each of them can take up to three months to complete.

World’s Most Amazing Paper Craft Castle

Wataru Itou, a talented art student from Tokyo, spent 4 years of his life building this trully incredible paper castle.

Named Umi no Ue no Oshiro (A Castle on the Ocean), this paper craft castle features electric lights and even a moving train, made of paper. It is set on exhibit at Uminohotaru, a service area between Tokyo and Chiba Prefecture and you can check it out with Google Earth.

Whether you’re a fan of paper craft or not, you must admit this paper castle is wonderful work of art. The Japanese like to take their time (see the LEGO Yamato Warship), but at least they deliver.

Painting with Fireworks

Rosemarie Fiore is a very special artist who paints her masterpieces using fireworks.

Armed with gloves and a gas-mask, Rosemarie lights the fireworks and releases them on a smooth concrete surface, creating abstract paintings over 2 meters wide. Of course she wouldn’t be a true artist if she just watched them rolling around and just take credit for whatever traces they left.

Miss Fiore uses several techniques to control the fireworks, including covering them up with a bucket, to contain them, tying them to the end of  a pole and restraining them with rails. The different sizes and colors of the fireworks-circles are the result of different chemical compounds.

Dummer – A Wooden Hummer Replica

Guy makes wooden replica of a Hummer and posts it for sale on eBay.

Although its owner is advertising it as an off-road vehicle, but seeing as it’s made almost completely out of plywood, I’d think twice before driving it on rough terrain. It is built on the chassis of a 90’s Chevrolet S10 and reaches a top speed of…well I don’t know exactly, but I’m sure it’s not very much.

Someone actually bought the wooden Hummer for the price of $3,350. Congratulations and drive safely!

Woman Shares Her Home with Eleven Big Cats

Sharing your bed with common pets like cats or dogs is so last year. Right now it’s all about big cats, and lots of them.

Riana Van Nieuwenhuizen thought she should do her part in saving cheetahs from extinction, so she bought one back in 2006. The 46-year-old South African left her job at the department of justice and found some temporary employment on a game ranch, where she could raise Fiela.

Now, Riana runs Fiela Funds Cheetah Breeding Project, a non-profit that fights to ensure the survival of cheetahs in their own ecosystem. Along the way, she also took in another 10 big cats, with which she often shares her bed.

Her four cheetahs, five white lions and two tigers are a handful, but Riana loves every one of them and puts up with all their naughtiness. Her 2 dogs have also grown quite fond of the felines and don’t mind snuggling up to them.

A True Motorcycle Sidecar

If you’re going to ride ina sidecar why not make it a really cool sidecar?

I bet that’s what Francois Knorreck said to himself when he started working on this unique motorcycle-car, 10 years ago. That’s right it took him 10 years and $20,000 to complete this masterpiece he calls the Snaefell. He used a Laverda motorcycle and put together the car using whatever parts he got his hands on.

Great effort, this crazy project is right up there with the 1967 Mustang Trike.
