Pedal Car gets pulled over

The Blues Brothers might not consider it to be a good getaway vehicle, but if you feel compelled to drive one, be aware of the cops. They do not seem to like this (why, I can not fathom)

Inconceivable Turtle Upgrade

Would you do this to your pet animal? This turtle probably does not mind, but it's still strange to see the slow-moving animal turned into this guy's private Salvador Dali crawling piece of surrealism. He "glued" fur on its shell, presumably artistically. You decide.


Retro-Space Art, one more

I really liked this rarely-seen piece of art, called "Travel to Distant Worlds" (an illustration to Karl Gilzin's 1958 book). It is an understated, moody and mysterious piece.

Blue Lagoon (inside a rock)

If you remember our article Fantastic Gemstones, this picture will add to the spectacular collection of nature's rocks. Irene Muller justly calls this picture "Blue Lagoon", waiting to be discovered inside a stone:

Black-and-White Postcards, the Classic Way

Pacco J. Pompei has a good collection of vintage postcards in his flickr set. He also does professional hand-tinting, his company in business for 25 years. He says "we employ only classical techniques... When history is written, those who have negatives and hand-developed prints will have works of Art that will be priceless."

Intricate Nail Art

From the "forwarded by grandma" department comes this series of nice nail art pictures:

(original unknown)

According to Make:Blog,

These are the works of Albanian artist Saimir Strati. The nail mosaic was named "The Largest Nail Mosaic" on September 4th, 2006.

"I have lost count of the nails, but I think it was around 400 kilos (880 pounds) of nails. I have used different nails. The condition was they should be industrial nails and they are," Strati said. "My technique resembles (digital) camera pixels. I have used a nail for each pixel," he told Reuters.

A lil' bit of rubber cement never hurt a turtle's shell. It will peel right off. Heck, it probably already fell off of it's own accord.

Now if only I could get that tutle shell to stick to my cat...
