Mad Quickies: Fantastical Felt Creatures, Frankenstein’s Monster, Faeries Made of Bugs and More!

Hello you. We’ve made it to Wednesday. Give yourself a round of applause, a pat on the back. Please enjoy these Quickies I’ve put together, just for you. Yes you, Barbara.

Let’s start off with something wonderous – 800 wooden balls suspended from a series of motors make gorgeous forms – including waves, Fibonacci spirals and labyrinths. Video below as well.

For the first time, the real tattoos of athletes are being portrayed in video games. But who owns the art?

Lovely 3D printed topographies by Lee Griggs resemble ocean floors, mountain ranges, hurricanes and more.

Hey handsome – the first illustration of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein’s Monster is going on view at the British Library. Bonus! Exhibition artwork by Dave McKean.

Holy crap, these are creepy and beautiful and also quite shiny – Fairy sculptures made with bug parts by Cedric Laquieze.

Fantastical creatures (and some real ones) rendered in felted wool by artist Zoë Williams.

Stunning photographs by ex-US military combat photographer Aaron Ansarov of Portugese Man-Of-War. Oh these are so pretty.
