Mad Quickies: Objects Sanded Down in Stop-Motion, Paintings on Books, Lego Boba Fett Costume and More!

Hello, dear readers. It’s time for your Monday Quickies. Here at Mad Art Lab, we LOVE the art and design site Colossal. So here’s a nice smattering of recent highlights from them. There’s also a couple from i09 that I couldn’t resist throwing in. I hope your week doesn’t suck.

This is officially my new favorite thing: Objects that are sanded down, layer by layer, while being captured in stop-motion. I can’t describe to you how much I love this. Video below.

French street artist, oakoak, creates some funny and thoughtful “street interventions”.

A different kind of palimpsest. Paintings on salvaged books by artist Mike Stilkey.

A sculpture made from plastic bottles illustrates one hour of garbage in New York City.

I can’t imagine how much work these took: Gorgeous, life-like paper bird sculptures by Diana Beltran Herrera.

Quite clever and well done: An Lego Boba Fett costume built for a kid.

A sneak peek at Pixar’s next animated short!



I urge you to watch this video. Urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrge
