It looks like something from the future but its 2014, its about time architecture looked as futuristic as this.
The brilliant aaerodynamic window tubed office, designed by Spanish architects Jose Selgas and Lucia Cano, allows its workers to feel as though they’re working in the middle of a Spanish forest. (This would have been the perfect back drop for the editors of Pans Labrynth).
Half of the office, which the two architects designed for their architecture firm Selgascano, is dug into the ground in a forest outside of Madrid. This ensures that the office stays cool even during the hot Spanish summers avoiding the feeling of being stuck in a green house.
A long window that curves up to the ceiling runs along the length of the office and eliminates the need for artificial lighting during the day. This window is also attached to a hinge and pulley mechanism that allows it to open up and keep the building ventilated. The other half of the building features an insulated fiberglass wall that helps shade the office’s workers from direct sunlight.
The office building’s sunken floor, along with the large and unusual window, means that employees sitting at their desks have an eye-level view of the forest floor. This is a company that really loves their employees!
This, combined with the view of the forest on one side and the sky above, make it seem like the office must be a fairly relaxing place to work.
Spanish artist Eloy Morales has created an eye-catching series of self portraits with an interesting catch – they’re not photographs, they’re paintings. Paintings of that quality? Lets all please take a moment and reflect on this genuine talent.
Finished? Okay… read on!
It has been the century/year/ month/whatever you want to call if, of the Selfie, the biggest craze in the western world. I know, its hard to say without cringing but we have all done it! Eloy Morales, turns his selfie style/self portraits into a blend of human figurative art and the traditional portrait by getting low down and dirty in some of the wet stuff… paint, people, paint!
We love when someone sticks it to the man. We won’t dare to say “out of the box thinking” but this guy thinks differently. Get messy with art. Be Creative , thats what we love!
Don’t do it better, do it differently like Eloy Morales.
Check out his other work, it isn’t too shabby either !

Russian musician and painter Svetlana Kolosova uses her own hand as her canvas as she paints charming little scenes inspired by fairy tales. The Moscow-based artist’s series of hand paintings, roughly translated as Palm Drawings, include a range of stories from classic Hans Christian Andersen tales like The Little Mermaid and The Little Match Girl to Russian folklore like The Snow Maiden, all in beautifully vivid colors.
The multifaceted artist accounts for the lines and ridges of the human hand in each meticulously executed painting. Kolosova makes working with such an unconventionally soft and unruly canvas seem effortless as each image pops and draws the viewer into the magical scene. At times, one forgets they are looking at a painting on the palm the artist’s hand and is simply left admiring the wonderful shades and shapes that Kolosova uses to put a picture to childhood stories.
Andrew Myers – A Laguna Beach-based artist stunned everyone with his unique works that were made by patiently drilling in 8,000 to 10,000 screws into plywood panel. Myers doesn’t rely on any computer software to guide him. Instead, he drills in screws at different depths all by instinct to create his magnificent 3-D portraits.
In his latest work, titled “It’s been a long day,” Myers made a 4 foot by 4 foot sculpture of a men’s dress shirt. It consists of 6,500 screws, oil paint, French newspaper clippings from the 1910’s to 30’s, and wood.
Myers recently redesigned his website. It includes, not only his trademark screw portraits, but also some thought-provoking bronze sculptures, as well. Hop on over there to see his full body of work.
If we all did this in the morning we would be a lot happier or better or more successful!
Mehh i’m not too sure what I mean because I didn’t do my “i’m the best routine” this morning, perhaps if I did I would know how great it would make us feel…
