Brazilian illustrator Gabriel Picolo is just over 100 days into an awesome art project called 365-DaysofDoodles. It’s exactly what it sounds like - Picolo is drawing something new in one of his Moleskine sketchbooks every day for a year. However these are some of the finest “doodles” we’ve ever seen.
Each drawing is unique and often inspired by some sort of pop culture source, featuring his own version of characters from anime, tv, movies and fine art.
This awesome photo shows a wild male Anna’s Hummingbird using his incredibly tiny tongue to lick nectar off a human finger. That finger belongs to Beam Guy, who lives outside Sacramento, California and loves hummingbirds so much that he’s managed to train some to perch on his fingers and drink homemade nectar from a small container that he conceals within his closed hand. He’s even learned to imitate one of their high-pitched calls in order to encourage them to come feed from his hands.
Giant Art Installation Targets Predator Drone Operators
In military slang, Predator drone operators often refer to kills as ‘bug splats’, since viewing the body through a grainy video image gives the sense of an insect being crushed.
To challenge this insensitivity as well as raise awareness of civilian casualties, an artist collective installed a massive portrait facing up in the heavily bombed Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa region of Pakistan, where drone attacks regularly occur. Now, when viewed by a drone camera, what an operator sees on his screen is not an anonymous dot on the landscape, but an innocent child victim’s face.
