Books are usually made for reading, yea I know crazy right. When a book isn’t used for ready sometimes we get creative and use them for a door stop, maybe a pillow to take a nap, or something for simple and boring. Well here is another use of books that is a little bit more creative and definitely a lot more pleasing to the eye. Here are some incredible book sculptures.

Here are some awesome illustrations by artist Aled Lewis. He cleverly incorporates 8 bit characters (some 16 bit but who’s counting) into beautiful real life scenes that fit the environment the video game character is used to. It’s pretty cool to see characters that are usually immersed in pixelated scenery, and instead included in our reality. And seriously who doesn’t want to see E. Honda dominate a piece of shit car?

If you wanted to go out in public and have none of your friends notice your real identity do you think you could pull it off with out just wearing a bag over your head? Well this artist tried to pull off something like that and posed as a completely different person in each photograph. She decided to look different in each photograph, and she pulled it off great. Sorry I don’t have more information on the project or the female herself, but I do know when she is dressed normal she is hot, something you might not think based on some of these photographs.
See the rest of her identity transformations below
Here’s a pretty awesome video of some dude listing off the many reasons why you should start living a life outside the bounds of Facebook. I’ll be the first to admit that I enjoy Facebook. Even though I greatly reduced my time on the site, I still feel I am on it too much. As a Facebook user, this video is refreshing and gives me insight into how much I’m engorged in this world when I take notice of the way I live my life, the things I do and the people that I meet is directly affected by how it would look on Facebook. I think me and Facebook need to take a little time apart from each other.

So yesterday I got the new facebook profile and cut up my face to pretty much take up the whole screen and everyone was asking me how I did it, usually I would ignore such requests and leave them thinking I was some kind of artistic genius but in actuality I stole the idea off the internet like pretty much everything else I do. It all started with French artist Alexandre Oudin (seen above), who decided to maximize the new facebook layout. I am sensing this is going to become a big hit with facebook users so jump on the train before it becomes old news. For anyone who wants to copy his style, all you have to do is block the other photos you’re tagged in and upload photos to your profile pictures album that are the exact size (yes, down to the pixel) of the display on Facebook and voilà!
The 5 little ones: 97 x 68 pixels
The big one: 180 x 532 pixels
UPDATE: DV has been kind enough to create a tool that cuts up your image for you, just upload you picture and it does everything for you, check the comment section for the site.

Incredible hand painting art created by talented Italian artist Guido Daniele. There really isn’t much to say about these things, all I got is my one friend makes a goose hand puppet all the time when he’s drunk and pokes girls in the face with it, it get’s really awkward actually. But anyway you can see more awesome hand paintings by Daniele here.

Artist Temujin Doran has found a new way to make LEGOS relevant again by simply implementing them into every day scenery. The interesting part is how he manages to pick the right Lego for the right scene. The fact that he can find an appropriate Lego for almost any situation is a true testament to the vast library of available Legos, since they have been around for like 800 years it makes sense. Here is a collection of his superimposing LEGO photography.
As you can see, Pac isn’t nearly as adorable when rendered in more than 8-bits, the thing is actually really gross. But of course this isn’t some kind of crazy alien finding, DeviantARTist Kalapusa, best known for his Piranha Plant garden sculpture, is back at it, this time with a lifelike Pac-Man sculpture. You can check out more of his other at his deviantartist site found here.
Below more pics and video, that thing is gross haha.
