An unhinged, hilarious, nightmarish, BAFTA –nommed 2012 stop motion short by Robert Morgan. To wit:

Bobby Yeah is a petty thug who lightens his miserable existence by brawling and stealing stuff. One day, he steals the favourite pet of some very dangerous individuals, and finds himself in deep trouble. He really should learn, but he just can’t help it.

Behold: Blackbird -a  battery-powered automotive rig created by London based visual effects company The Mill.

A fully-adjustable wheelbase, track width, and suspension allows filmmakers to shoot car commercials without actual cars. The product chassis, in whatever required variant, colour or configuration, is superimposed over the Blackbird in post production via CGI.

An homage to the occasionally moments-too-late New York subway commuter by Jessica Leibowitz. To wit:

There is no quintessential NYC experience quite like running down a subway station platform with your arms flapping all about like a distressed penguin, making eye contact with the conductor, and then hesitantly stretching out your hand to try to slip between the doors before they close.

An impressive and rather mesmeric interpretation of Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ (followed by something even more impressive) by Turkish artist Garip Ay using the traditional paper marbling technique of ebru.

Colours are floated on the surface of a viscous watery solution called size before transferring the image to a sheet of paper.
