The Furoshiki shoes by Masaya Hashimoto


Italian footwear company Vibram recently released a pair of shoes that literally wrap around your foot. The idea came from Japanese designer Masaya Hashimoto, who took his inspiration from the Japanese tradition of Furoshiki. There are many techniques to wrap pretty much anything, likes boxes, flowers, or to make bags, but nobody thought of using this art to create shoes so far.


This design is more than just a marketing stunt for the brand, it is a well-thought shoe that actually adapts to your foot and provides great angle support. In terms of look-and-feel, the results are a bit surprising at first sight, but the revealing of the underlying structure gives it an interesting design.




Astonishing Stretchable Paper Sculptures Appear to Be Made of Stone

At first glance the sculptures constructed by artist Li Hongbo appear to be chiseled out of stone, but once manipulated and pulled, they reveal the use of a different medium. Once the viewer uncovers that the sculpture can not only move, but stretch, spread, twist, bend, and contract, the pieces exhibit a much greater impact.

Hongbo first developed an interest in paper when he worked in the book publishing business. He recognized the vitalness of paper in the design of a book, analyzing the characteristics and durability of the different types. He adopted the “paper gourd” method, which is commonly recognized from paper lanterns.

Once Hongbo discovered connecting paper, endless possibilities unfurled. He adopted a layering process, which takes months to complete, and carefully considers the depth, width, mass, and center of each piece to ensure a balanced construction. Cutting, chiseling, and sanding each piece as if it were made of stone, Hongbo’s paper 3D sculptures are more than meet’s the eye.

Remarkably Realistic 3D Drawings

Artist Stefan Pabst skillfully creates the illusion of three-dimensionality. His phenomenal pieces, which appear to be 3D objects and people, are actually anamorphic illustrations. The designer started out by painting portraits in 2007, but yearned to do something different from his usual work. “Every day for 10 hours I was painting faces. It was a challenge to begin with but I got bored,” Pabst told BuzzFeed. “I wanted to go beyond the boundaries of the sheet of paper and leave 2D behind.” Soon, this dream became a reality as the painter continued to explore his remarkable talent.

On his YouTube channel, viewers can see Pabst in action as his proves that his paintings are authentic. He’s produced a moon that rises above his paper, a horse who appears to be peeking out of his canvas, and an eerily realistic spider. While these are highly impressive, the artist wants to continue to improve by creating 3D portraits. “I want to inspire people through my art and show them that they can do anything,” says Pabst. “I want to show the magic of painting.”

Creating The Future In 3 Dimensions.


A few weeks ago, someone on the DJ Storm’s Blog writing team heard a random kid say something about “You want I should give him the CLAMPS?!” which sparked a group-wide “Futurama” binge watching session on Netflix.  (Where the entire series is featured for your viewing pleasure.)  Following multiple team members watching the full series, we stumbled onto a 3D Futurama test shot conceived by digital wizard “seccovan”.  Check out how he put together this incredible re-imagination of the Futurama world.

If you took the time to see all the incredible detail that went into a project of this scale, check out the amazing, but very short, finished product.



Timur Lysenko’s Tattoos


There is darkness and beauty in Timur Lysenko’s tattoos. His Polish-based tattooer uses gradient shading to create 3D wow-factor portraits and flowers, and then mixes into the compositions flat lines and sweater-style patterns for a contrasting effect. There is a lot of black pigment, and some bright pink or red. The aesthetic and themes are like flashbacks of horror movies; bits of Edward Scissorhands and Beauty and the Beast, as well as Punk Rock music and album covers.

300: Rise of an Empire

300: BATTLE OF ARTEMESIUM 300image 1529735_10153772354995472_664474875_o seize-your-glory-banner 1512735_10153634570730472_2092225564_n 976856_10152909306415472_138034456_o

Warner Bros. Pictures has brought online a new featurette that takes you behind the scenes of their upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire, opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on March 7, 2014.  Directed by Noam Murro, the film stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Andrew Tiernan. Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel “Xerxes” and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster 300, this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. 300: Rise of an Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
