New Edible ‘Amezaiku’ Animal Lollipop Designs by Shinri Tezuka

Molded sugar candies are not new, but these incredible Japanese lollipops take candy beyond food and into sculpture. Could you bring yourself to eat one?

Based out of a Tokyo candy shop called Ameshin, candy artisan Shinri Tezuka (previously) crafts some of the most unusual lollipops you're ever likely to eat from wiggling goldfish to statuesque lions or prickly hedgehogs. The translucent candy seems to have more in common with glassmaking than confe

The cicadas are singing outside, but none so beautiful as these!

These oversized moths and insects by Yumi Okita (previously) are constructed with fabric, embroidery thread, fake fur, wire, and feathers. The Raleigh-based artist makes each piece by hand, creating faithful interpretations of actual insects like the Oleander Hawk Moth or the Peacock Butterfly. You

There really are no limits for a creative life, except that it must come from the heart.

Maud Lewis, who never had any formal art training, painted the scenes she saw around her home in Nova Scotia. Lewis sold paintings to passing tourists for $2. Now, they go for as much as $20,000 and her entire house is on view in a museum.

The Museum Of Bad Art Has Been Celebrating Failure Since 1993

The next time you feel a little 'less than' in your creative endeavors....a reminder that there really is no such thing as 'bad' art.

From the garbage to gallery walls, Boston's Museum Of Bad Art is dedicated to preserving “art too bad to be ignored.”

You Must Solve a Puzzle to Turn Every Page in This Beautiful Wooden Book

Codex Silenda - a literal book of puzzles.

The only downside to finding a really good book to read is that it will be over before you want it to be. But that won’t be the case with puzzle designer Brady Whitney’s Codex Silenda. Even though the wooden book only has five pages, you’ll need to solve a complex mechanical puzzle on each one befor...

The imagination is a wonderful place. We all need to spend more time there.
As this amazingly creative hand-built musical instrument proves.

Swedish band Wintergatan have created an incredible ‘Marble Machine’ that has clocked up 16m views on YouTube. But what does it sound like?

The Perch Light by London-based architect and designer Umat Yamac sits perfectly at the intersection of form and function: the bird-shaped light is made to look like a folded origami creation that's illuminated from the inside. Made from actual synthetic paper, the elegant light is counterb

Holy Benday Dot, Batman!
A treasure trove of old comics. Foreign language, pulp, horror, romance, crime - it's all here!

The decade beginning with the late 1930s is known as the Golden Age of comic books. Many of the superheroes from today’s blockbuster franchises, including Batman, Superman, and Captain America, emerged during this period, and the industry grew into a commercial powerhouse.

No word for blue – the mystery of history’s missing colour

Does language affect perception? Linguists argue yes, and this seems another example of words defining our reality. And if words affect our perception of color, what else are they affecting?

Studies show that no ancient language had a word for blue. Does this mean those cultures couldn't see it? We investigate the mystery of missing blues.

Hand-Cut Mandalas and Other Intricate Paper Works by Mr. Riu

Whoa....Just. Whoa. The simplest of objects transformed. Never let your 'materials' stifle your creativity.

Japanese artist Mr. Riu takes paper cutting to an intricate extreme, crafting mandalas and elaborate figures with a precision work tool called the swivel knife. This tool allows him to cut curves more fluidly, as the head of the knife can turn 360 degrees. With this movement, Riu produces asymme

Furbonacci Sequence Proves That Cats Are Purrfect (10+ Pics)

Yay, math jokes and kitties! Are we living in a perfect world, or what?
(You can submit your own photos with the Fibonacci filter at the end of the article.)

Math is the language of cats, and it is they who first discovered the so-called Fibonacci sequence. No, it wasn't the Indian mathematician Pingala, nor Leonardo of Pisa. Cats got it first, but they called it the Furbonacci sequence!
