Subject of a recent installment of Great Big Story, artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams live on an awesome floating island they built themselves off the coast of Vancouver Island called Freedom Cove. Among the island’s amenities are a dance floor, a lighthouse, and four greenhouses. This is too cool for words! – Happy Friday, everyone 🙂

Available from Rakuten, Sushi Backpacks pay tribute to three great classics of sushi – the Sake Nigiri (salmon), the Ebi Nigiri (shrimp), and the Tamagoyaki Nigiri (Japanese omelette).

We love the work of photographer and graphic designer Tomba Lobos who has created an interesting set of portraits, disfiguring his models with a clever mix of flesh coloured play dough and digital retouching. A slightly unsettling yet original and unique series that explores the boundaries of classic photography and basic sculpting and digital versus analogue image manipulation.
Created by design studio Secret Wood, these beautiful and unique wooden rings, that house dioramic scenes highlighting the beauty of nature, are created entirely by hand combining a mix of wood, resin, and beeswax. Every ring is completely handmade and bespoke, taking approximately four to five weeks to complete (with an expedited option) and can be ordered online. The end result is simply stunning – definitely our product of the day 🙂

We LOVE the original creations of Kiszkiloszki who is having fun transforming famous paintings into funny and unique animated GIFs. From Michelangelo to René Magritte, Van Gogh, and Leonardo da Vinci, Kiszkiloszki takes these classic masterpieces and puts a 2016 spin on them. Awesome stuff! 🙂
Bobbugs: A prop master for U.S. TV shows, Michael Gump, aka Bobbugs, has created Master of Disguise, an awesome project where he covers himself with assorted colourful objects, such as LEGO, plastic ducks, cotton buds, cookies, paint, lollipops, pens, pizzas, temporary tattoos and so on, filling his instagram with unique and slightly offbeat self-portraits. LOVE it! 🙂
Charlie Davoli: We love the work of photographer Charlie Davoli who creates unique and surreal Instagram images which lead you into a dreamlike universe, mixing fantastical landscapes, gigantic characters, and surprising compositions. An amazing series, Charlie Davoli is certainly worth following – check out the selection of pics we’ve posted below. 🙂
Can Pekdemir: We are so intrigued by this unique series of strange and surreal portraits from designer Can Pekdemir, who manipulates and distorts the bones of his models to create slighty scary and uncomfortable organic imagery. Can Pekdemir notes ‘My studies are focused on reconstructing and deforming the bodies by either altering the physical conditions in which the entity exists, and/or treating them as test subjects for virtual experiments while reshaping the systems we now have and thus documenting the evolvement in time.’ Such beautiful and interesting pieces!
