Dazzling Eye Shadow Panoramas

You may remember Paige Thompson’s cute animal-ipsticks. Artist Katie Alves from Canada also paints her face but in a more dazzling fashion. Using her eyelids as the canvas, she paints a panorama that stretches from one eyelid to the other.

From glimpses of the Cheshire Cat to the road of yellow brick to carpets flying across the desert, Alves captures the essence of a variety of movies (mostly Disney). Have a look her eye shadow panoramas after the jump.

We Review: StarDrone Extreme

Hot on the heels of StarDrone for the PS3, indie developers Alexey Menshikov of Beatshapers and Andriy Sharanevych from Orb Games bring their colourful top-down physics puzzler to the PS Vita.

Hilarious Pop Culture Reinterpretations of Classic Art

In her series of 54 “pop reinterpretations”, illustrator Hillary White applies acrylic to canvas and re-imagines classic artworks to include characters from popular films, TV shows, cartoons, and comics.

White paints her reinterpretations in the same style as the old masters would have done and amusingly replaces James Whistler’s mother with a teenage mutant ninja turtle, inserts the hulking Voltron into a Monet, and has Big Bird explaining the musculature of Kermit’s arm to the Muppets in oil painting by Rembrandt.

See some of White’s creative pop culture mashups after the jump.

We Review: The Splatters

What do you get when you mix a physics-based puzzle game with suicidal blobs of paint, all mixed with some fancy acrobatics? You get The Splatters, of course. I took this game for a messy flip to see what it was all about.

An Enthralling “Celestial Lights” Show

If you’re enthralled by the works of Randy Halverson and Terje Sørgjerd, I think you might take a liking to the latest creation of landscape photographer Ole C. Salomonsen.

Auroras are caused by solar activity, and it is expected that a solar max (the period of greatest solar activity) for our current solar cycle will happen between this year and the next. Noticing an increase in such activity, Salomonsen from Tromsø, Norway pointed his cameras to the aurora-filled skies in the northern parts of this homeland. 150,000 exposures later and he had created a most ethereal time-lapse video, Celestial Lights.

Celestial Lights is Salomonsen’s second video project. His first, In The Land Of The Northern Lights, can be seen after the jump.
