The Secret World of Cats

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

I’m a big cat lover but I have to wonder: do I actually know my cat? Do I know what it does when I’m not at home, when I sleep, or even when I’m at my computer and it’s not sitting next to me?  Cats can do some strange things when we aren’t there to watch them. The creators of the artwork below were an exception to the rule. They managed to capture cats in all of their occasional craziness (or at least what we imagine they really do when we’re not looking). Enjoy!

That sweetheart of a kitty begging its owner for some milk? This is what he does to the neighbor’s dog when you’re away.

My Dance For You. 3D Art.

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

It’s beautiful when you can dance beautifully :) Dancing is a complicated body science that requires lots of your time, efforts, patience and passion. It’s a real science to move in a dance and that’s a real art to create the dancers in 3D. Today we are glad to present you a showcase of some amazing 3D works featuring the dance. Girls look so real that I couldn’t first believe that’s not a photo or photo manipulation effects. Dance and enjoy with us!

Chew on This: Interesting Chewing Gum Ads

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Strange thing, and you might not believe me, but chewing gum ads seem to be as rare as aliens in the White House. Though we see TV ads every other day and we might chew gum all day long, I have a feeling that chewing gum has become such an inevitable part of our lives that it doesn’t need to be advertised at all! It’s like air, water, or food. Anyway, I managed to dig up some of the few chewing gum ads out there, and you can check out their interesting design elements below.
