Mad Quickies: Turing Tests, Charcoal Columns, Game of Thrones Prosthetics and more

You’ve made it to the middle of the week. Congratulations! Have some Quickies.

You’ve heard about about the chatbot that passed the Turing Test, right? Well it didn’t. Lab alum Maki Naro has the scoop in comic form.

Here’s a great resource: Digital artists share their brushes. I’ve downloaded several of these sets.

From the Adorable But WTF files comes this Northern White-faced owl helping an illustrator draw.

These beautiful, deconstructed columns are made from suspended charcoal. By artist Seon Ghi Bahk

Whoa dude. Here’s some behind-the-scenes of some of the prosthetics used on Game of Thrones. *spoilers thru the end of season 3*

This could be interesting: A pen that lets you write in any color you see.

Artist Andreas Scheiger imagines that letters are living things in these beautiful sculptures.

Our friend, Glendon Mellow, has a brand new website. Art and science for all! Go check it out.
