Mad Quickies: Friendship is Madness, Tiny Monsters, Papercut Anatomy and Much More!

Hey gang, Brian here with your mid-week Quickies. There’s lots of cool things and frightening things to look at, but I bid you look at them all the same. Do it for me.

These are so, *so* good. Wee monsters drawn on Post-its by Don Kenn. -Via Courtney

It’s all right there in the title, “Friendship Is Madness”. My Little Pony as Cthulhu. -Via Ryan

Hey, um, remember that new Spider-Woman cover with the severely implausible pose and costume that is, apparently, spray-painted on? Here’s what a human body would actually look like in that pose. *shivers*

Sweet, tiny papercut art by Parth Kothekar. -Via Kim

I barely even know how to describe these gorgeous anatomical artworks, so I’ll just quote the artist – Lisa Nilsson. “These pieces are made of Japanese mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books. They are constructed by a technique of rolling and shaping narrow strips of paper called quilling or paper filigree”. Wowowowowowowowowow -Also via Kim

In a truly wonderous confluence of time, patience and pareidolia, photographer Thomas Herbrich spent 3 months taking around 100,000 pictures of smoke. What can you see?

Miss Georgia, Maggie Bridges, will be wearing 3D printed shoes to the Miss America pageant. -Via Sarah




Bonus! What would the Game of Thrones theme look and sound like if it were made in the 1960s by Saul Bass? Exactly how you think it would. Rad.
