Designer Marco Sodano recreates these three famous paintings with pixelated Lego art. So cool to realize the depth of our familiarity with these images plus the power of color and shape to suggest great detail.

Vyacheslav Mishchenko takes these remarkable macro photographs of snails going about everyday snail life.
Isabella Rossellini dreamed up this incredible video series, titled Green Porno, to artistically display and explain the mating rituals of different types of insects and animals. It’s an avant-garde nature show and her costumes, sets and dramatic narrative are really remarkable. Plus it’s truly informative, carefully researched and surprisingly bold.
Here are some great stills from the series, but you can watch the collection of films on the Sundance Channel site.

Really striking animal portraits by Morten Koldby.
March roars in like a lion
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.
The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear.

Wendy MacNaughton is such a talent and her new book, Meanwhile, in San Francisco: The City in its Own Words looks to be a very special collection of illustrations and notations, capturing all the corners and characters of her home city — from the library to an intersection to a few moments with a city bus driver. Bravo!
