Awesome: Typewriters of Famous Authors
Move along, just walking my bitch.
If you’ve played just about any of Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. games then you’ll be all too familiar Bowser, fearsome “King of the Koopa” and Mario’s spiky antagonist. But did you ever stop to consider him as something cute? Nope, neither did we. At least, not until we saw this awesome crocheted sweater, made by craft maven Jennifer Olivarez of Squirrel Picnic.
Jennifer was challenged by Lisa Egolf to crochet a sweater for her pet turtle, named Myrtle: “so that he would be easy to spot when she lets him loose to play in the courtyard of the school where she teaches science. ‘I think bright yet manly colors would be best,’ she said, because after all this Myrtle is male (don’t judge). So I set out to design the most masculine turtle sweater I could.”
When considering tough chelonians, Jennifer immediately thought of Bowser the video game villain. We love that this sweater makes Myrtle look terrifically tough and yet also incredibly cute. It’s a winning combination and Myrtle looks ready to take on the world or at least seriously menace some fresh veggies.
Dabs all day bruhh
Dirty Coursebooks by Pavel Fuksa and Karolina Galácz
With the announcement of Porn Studies, an academic journal dedicated to the exploration of gittin’ it on, Pavel and Karolina created these Penguin-style educational books, each focused on various interdisciplinary branches of pornography such as bukkake, squirting, and making me giggle uncontrollably.
“Miniature topographies inside 200-gallon fish tanks, based on traditional landscape paintings. Keever fills the tanks with water once he’s sculpted and placed the miniatures, and colored lights and pigments create dense, atmospheric environments. He views his works as an evolution of the landscape tradition and deliberately acknowledges the conceptual artifice.”
