Spaceboyjordo's Robots

I thought these robots by spaceboyjordo on etsy were pretty cool before but after reading the description I've found out that they have a SECRET COMPARTMENT! Now they've been elevated to "awesome".

"Robot aids in safety & protection. Helps prevent ninjas, cowboys, aliens, pirates, dogs w/ sweaters, creepy uncles, and emo kids from entering your zone by using its robot skillz. For best results place robot on shelf facing a window and/or door of your zone. See results instantly. In case of detached limb during combat, acquire a hot glue servicing mechanism device and reattach where necessary. Sometimes robot may become fierce. Batteries not included, nor necessary. Robot personalities may vary. See a physician if complications occur."

Amazing Dollar Origami

According to the artist, Andrew Hans these incredible origami pieces "all use dollar bills with no cuts, no glue, and no tape." You can check out the rest of his DeviantArt Gallery here and I have to say that it was really difficult to choose an image to feature here because all of his work is amazing.

Mint Jelly Steampunk Jellyfish

This steampunk jellyfish has been sitting around for a while and I finally got some time to finish it up. The mint jelly color wasn't in the original plan but I think I kind of like it.

Sakura Tattoo T-shirts

Sakura: Cherry blossoms have short blooming times and are very delicate. Though they aren't around for long, when they're here they make their surrounding area seem like paradise.

This cherry blossom tattoo t-shirt design featuring silky petals encircling the word "Sakura" in a tattoo font is sure to inspire just as people have found inspiration beneath the cherry blossom trees for centuries. Available on t-shirts, buttons, stickers, stationary, art prints, tote bags, messenger bags, baby clothes, maternity clothes, panties, hoodies and more!

Rocket Bike Mod

Riding this bike is sure to get you some funny looks but I think this bike modified to look like a rocket looks kind of cool. I don't think I'd be able to resist painting it silver though.

MUFFA - Mariella's Unusual Fantasy Funny Animals

These tiny amigurumi creations are incredibly detailed for their size. This miniature snail is only 13 mm long and the sock monkey below it is 3 cm tall.
I couldn't resist making a post about these since I just posted about those sock monkey soapsicles earlier. Here's a link to the rest of the images on her flickr page and here's her etsy shop.

Sock Monkey Soapsicles

I'm so torn, I'm not sure whether to eat it, cuddle with it or wash with it. These sock monkey patterned soap bars are really great and they also remind me that I need to reread my Sock Monkey comics.

Throwing Knife Wall Hooks

These knife wall hooks are pretty awesome. I was very interested in knife-throwing a few years ago and I still feel like trying my hand at it again now and then. I'm sure having these sticking in my wall might remind me to practice.

For Shame

This is just a quick post about this book that is being sold online for $100 that is filled with stolen art from many artists and interviews from Darren Di Lieto's blog.

A quote from his blog:
"This has not only hurt me… The book is available online and in book stores and every image in it has been stolen from my community website and the websites of the illustrators featured - with the interviews being the backbone of the publication. Before anyone asks - the internet is publicly accessible not public domain, copyright still applies."

I'm not a copyright crusader or anything but I think this is simply shameful.
