Juan Sanchez Castillo Miniature Figures on Faces


juan-ssnchez-castillo-places-miniatures-on-faces-for-making-it-up-series-designboom-01

Using miniature figures and makeup, murcia-based photographer juan sánchez castillo creates small landscapes and scenes directly onto the face of a model. ‘Making it up’ comprises a series of photos which animate tiny workers and children interacting with the female’s facial features. In one example, white powder transforms the model’s face into a snowy panorama, as cheekbones become mountaintops and the bridge of a nose visualizes as a steep, snow-covered slope, all the while small-scale characters are pictured sledding and rolling snowballs down the surface of skin. ‘Painters at work’ presents two tiny overall-clad men, attempting to apply color to the giant lips that face them — with part of the lipstick removed, the scene simulates the painter’s work in progress. Each vignette presents a combination of body art and miniatures, creating imaginative and whimsical compositions.

Red Light District Awareness campaign | STOP THE TRAFFIK


Captura-de-pantalla-2012-04-25-a-las-11.11.34

This campaign caught a lot of attention when the men thought at first that the girls were just dancing together for their entertainment, but sometimes things are not what they seem. Men, women and children are trafficked – tricked, forced and exploited in the sex industry. Awareness campaign created by Duval Guillaume Modem and produced by monodot in support of STOP THE TRAFFIK.

Santa Parkour

Santa Claus will be delivering gifts to children around the world this Christmas on a sleigh guided by reindeer but, in the meantime, one of his U.S. helpers is showing what would happen if jolly ol’ St. Nick went extreme. Ronnie Shalvis, a free-runner, stunt coordinator and parkour trainer from South Jordan, Utah, dressed up in a Santa suit and went to leaps and bounds, literally, to show how Santa Claus gets from roof to roof. Shalvis’ version of Santa travels by parkour, a running discipline that involves jumping, climbing and rolling anywhere and everywhere, making the landscape, in this case rooftops, a personal obstacle course.

Don’t Let Your Halloween Taste This Bad.


Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 8.47.44 AMWith the first round of Halloween parties already passed, and the 31st of October fast approaching, everyone has candy on the brain.  Trick-or-Treat-ing usual results in lots of treats, but Crest took a bit more heavily to the ‘trick’ side of things when they created veggie-flavored candy for kids.  Take a look at the hilarious video below.

My Sincerest Condolences To The People Of South Plainfield, NJ.


After re-cooping for a few days, I was looking for some new things to write about, and one of them came from a very real, very unfortunate source.  About 24 hours ago from the time of this post, I received word about a terrible tragedy in my home town.  In the photo below, emergency personnel work around the scene of a fatal fire in South Plainfield, N.J., Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012. A fast-burning fire destroyed half of the duplex home early Thursday, killing five members of a family and injuring four others, authorities said. Relatives and neighbors said the dead included several children.  My condolences and my heart goes out to family members of those who lost their lives in the fire.

SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J. (AP) — A fast-burning fire swept through half of a large duplex home early Thursday before firefighters could get inside to attempt a rescue, killing five members of a family, including four children, authorities said.  The cause of the fire was not immediately known. Officials said it was the deadliest on record for South Plainfield, about 30 miles southwest of New York City.  Relatives said the fifth victim was the children’s grandmother, though authorities said they were still working to identify the dead.

Authorities said four other family members were also injured, though only one of them remained hospitalized by midday.  Neighbor Isabel Scavino said her husband woke up about 3:15 a.m. to the sound of a screaming child. She said they heard what sounded like either gunshots or firecrackers as the fire tore through the house, a converted 19th century farmhouse.  Scavino said she saw a woman running from the home with a small child in her arms, and other children also fleeing.

“The fire just spread out, it was just crazy. It looked like it started on the first floor and then just spread up to the roof in about a minute,” she said.  The fire was largely confined to the half of the home that was destroyed.  Fire Chief Thomas Scalera said the first floor was engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived, making it difficult for them to quickly get access to the second story, where all the victims were found.

Ladders were quickly put up at the back and sides of the home to try to reach the top stories, but Scalera said the flames were too intense for firefighters to get inside to try to rescue anyone.  “They are very somber right now at the firehouse,” he said.  Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan said police and the prosecutor’s office were investigating the cause of the fire.  Two volunteer firefighters received minor injuries when they were involved in a two-vehicle crash en route to the fire, Kaplan said.

Had Any Odd Facebook Requests Recently?


What if you were cruising Facebook on any particular day, and you got a friend request from you future son or daughter?  Lets not forget that more effective than the threat of hideous diseases is the threat of responsibility. Olla Condoms in Brazil sent friend requests to single dudes from fictional love children.  A sort of scared straight viral marketing campaign to get guys to wrap it up, this is one of the most brilliant ideas I’ve ever seen.  Check the method below.

Children’s Drawings Re-Imagined.


Children have incredible imaginations.  By best friend’s daughter Kayla has said some the wildest thing ever in life, and some of the pictures she’s shown me from school are… bewildering.  Butwhat would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted realistically? The Monster Engine takes children’s drawings and paints them realistically.  This project is probably one of my favorite spins on art I’ve seen in a while.  Check the method below.

Samuel L. Jackon’s Bedtime Story.


For some people, putting their children down to rest is a precious, heart warming, bonding moment they look forward to.  It can be a time when a child looks to their parent for comfort and protection, in the uncertainty of the night, or after the turmoil of a haphazard day.  For other parents however, bedtime is simply a time when they clock out of their parental job, and they just need their little to one to go the f*ck to sleep for a few hours.  Adam Mansbach’s book “Go The F*ck To Sleep” is almost a perfect blend between the two extremes of being sweet, nurturing, and totally fed up with your child.  Now for the epic twist… It’s narrated by Samuel L. Jackson himself.  Click the pic to listen. (via BuzzFeed)

A Home-Made School?


Hand-built in four months by architects, local craftsmen, pupils, parents and teachers, this primary school in Rudrapur (a village in north west Bangladesh), uses traditional methods and materials of construction but adapts them in new ways.  The architects, Anna Aeringer from Austria and Eike Roswag from Germany, made every effort to engage the skills of local craftsmen, helping them refine processes and learn new techniques that they could then use to improve the general standard of rural housing.

Sunlight and ventilation can be regulated through the use of shutters.  in Rudrapur, the traditional local materials are bamboo for constructions and earth for walls and foundations, straw for the roofs and jute rope for lashing constructions.  Earthbound materials such as loam and straw are combined with lighter elements like bamboo sticks and nylon lashing to create a environmentally sustainable foundation.  Thick walls assure a comfortable climate on the ground floor of the building.

Jim Jones “Doin’ It For The Kids”


It seems that Dipset’s Jim Jones can’t totally be described by the rap lyrics he spits about “b*tches, cars, money and h*es”.  Recently, Lindsay Meeks produced a short video documenting Jim Jones teaching a class full of high school seniors… and keeping his street cred in tact at the same time.  Click the pic to watch the video.
