    This is the CATable, a collaboration between designer Ruan Hao and Lycs Architecture. It functions as a desk for humans AND a playground for cats. That's cool, right? You know, sometimes I wish I was cat-size so I could play under my sofa. Plus jump really high. I've alway... / Continue →

    This a carved wood guitar by Gig Goldstein (Gig -- that's a great rock name!) featuring an impressive alien in the style of H.R. Giger. The guitar took 40-50 hours to complete but would only take a rockstar seconds to set on fire and smash on stage. Back me up, Jimi! "It's al... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy carving the end of a toothpick into a little Game Boy. Then he paints it with like, A hair. Not a pube though because all those loopty-loops would make painting impossible. Now granted the toothpick is a little larger and fancier than the ones you'd ... / Continue →

    This is the world's largest pumpkin (1,818.5-pounds -- not actually a ton like I said in the title because I'm a dirty liar) carved into a giant zombie scene by pumpkin impaler Ray Villafane. Impressive, right? WRONG. Cinderella's pumpkin carriage was at least four times tha... / Continue →

    This is Optimus Prime carved into a watermelon. Or is it a watermelon carved into Optimus Prime? "Neither, that's a cantaloupe." Can't elope?! But we love each other and our families are feuding! "Did you really just...I hope you feel shame for even typing that." I do, I ... / Continue →

    Some artists paint. Some artists sculpt. This guy carves really ripe bananas. Me? I knead titties like pizza dough. Now I know what you're thinking, "Wow, he truly is a modern Renaissance man!" And it's true, I am (plus ninja). I've also been known to doodle one hell of ... / Continue →

    This is a pumpkin carving sculpture of R2-D2. What's the difference between a pumpkin carving and a pumpkin sculpture? Pretension. Just kidding, there actually is a difference. I think. Per an interview with sculptor Noel Dickover (remind me to never do business with you!)... / Continue →

    Carved leaf art is exactly what it sounds like: actual leaves carved into art. Or -- OR -- actual art carved into leaves. Either way, my hands are far too shaky to ever attempt anything like this. And that's not just my drinking problem talking, although of course it is beca... / Continue →
