Every Single Toy (Almost) From the 1980s: The King of Legoland

If you picked up a toy in the 1980s, be it a car, Transformers, LEGO, or a Nintendo game, chance is, it might be in this video. I think my mind just exploded with nostalgia. Music by Hunting Charlie’s Band(e), video directed by Micaël Reynaud. And look, animated GIFs for all you Tumblrs. (via vimeo)

Just discovered these fun collages and illustrations by Moscow-based artist Philipp Igumnov. He strikes an intriguing balance in his work with many pieces being laugh-out-loud ridiculous while others are filled with a sort of sad, dreamlike melancholy. Whatever he’s doing, it works, and I found myself sad when I reached the end of his gallery so quickly.

Soon Young Lee photographs these delightful miniature rooms overgrown with moss and sprouts, incorporating a number of other bizarre and surreal elements. They’re kind of like Slinkachu meets Jumanji. Yeah, it’s after midnight and that’s all I’ve got. See more over on Art Hub. (images via galerie mariska hammoudi and art hub)

I’ve been viscerally aware of Simon Birch’s paintings for some time, but it wasn’t until stumbling onto his latest series, Laughing With a Mouth Full of Blood, that I really stopped to consider his staggering talent. The paintings from this series use bold, bright color that’s applied in angular, almost geometric brush strokes creating these wonderful portraits. Birch is a U.K.-born artist of Armenian descent who now lives and works in Hong Kong. He’s represented by Future Industries where you can see many more paintings from this exhibition. (via nevver)

So apparently popsicle stick bombs are a thing, and after this video I think they’re going to be a huge thing. I agree with a commenter on YouTube who asked what kind of kinetic dark magic is this!? If you want to make one yourself head on over to Instructables for a tutorial on how to make your own Cobra Weave Exploding Stick Bomb. (via neatorama)

Vasco Mourao is an architect and illustrator originally from Portugal who now lives and works in Barcelona. His densely illustrated cities and structures are drawn entirely by hand and while all are of course fictional places, they often incorporate real buildings. For instance, in the most dense piece above entitled New Yorker one can find the Chrysler building, the Met, the Whitney, and the Guggenheim among others—it’s like architectural Where’s Waldo! Another piece, Is it me or is Barcelona falling apart?, includes a wide variety of less iconic structures Mourao found around the city, and the last two illustrations are available as limited edition prints from his shop. Thanks for sharing your work with Colossal, Vasco!
