Illustrator Nikita Golubev (aka ProBoyNick) from Moscow, Russia, found a new media for his illustrations. He transforms dirty vehicles covered with layers of dust and dirt into works of art.

This ongoing Dirty Car Art project is bringing beauty to grit and grime of his city and I can’t wait to see more of his masterpieces.

Saturdays in Ljubljana are always packed with people. This Saturday was no different but it had an additional twist. It was Earth Day. Even though there are many events to celebrate it every year, one stands out. The city divers yearly sweep of the Ljubljanica river. It’s important to stress one thing: they do this every year, so the pile of garbage on the photos is at most one year old. Hopefully every passerby thought about that.

There was another nice gesture by the city that caught our eye. Ljubljana tourism office decided to give away potted herbs. We walked away with a pretty sage plant. Hopefully you found something for yourself as well if you happened to walk by.

All in all it was a great spring Saturday. We can’t wait for the next one. What about you?

So this old cigarette vending machine in the rural town of Uchiko in Ehime Prefecture in Japan got a new life. It became an origami vending machine and it contains a range of folded origami designs. There are 18 total pieces to pick from and the price depends on their complexity.

According to Japanese news reports, the designs are made by a 61 year-old woman who runs the shop where the machine is located.

How lovely, I’m always inspired by this traditional Japanese art of paper folding and I think the idea is so sweet. A simple machine that delivers wonderfully crafted items that bring you little joy and beauty.

Under-Cats is a series of photos taken underneath, wait for it,…cats. And is followed by Under-Dogs. Yes, you guessed it, a series of photos taken underneath dogs. I love how photogenic a cat can be, even if it’s just laying on a glass pane. And with playful dogs, photos really come alive through their personalities.

Photos of pets from underneath on a black background became a signature artwork for a Lithuanian photographer Andrius Burba by now and I can’t wait to see more of his under-photos. Here is a link to his photographic journey from underneath.

This is the line of 15,524 dominoes made by a professional domino artist Hevesh5 and in this video you’ll see the fall. You don’t have to click play just now if you don’t have the time, beacuse it lasts for five (!!!) minutes. Maybe save the link for an extra boring day 🙂

One of the most read articles on our old site was about the gorgeous Easter eggs by Franc Grom. Master Grom sadly died almost exactly two years ago.

The master craftsman from Vrhnika, Slovenia, drilled tiny holes into fragile egg shells to create beautiful artworks. Each egg has between 2,500 and 3,000 holes in it.
