INSA’s GIF-iti Project Hits Sydney
UK artist and designer INSA was invited by The Project and Ironlak to animate a mural on the outside wall of their studio. This isn’t PhotoShop trickery, the artist actually painted the wall over and over again, taking pictures in between, to create the rad animated GIF that you see above. Crazy.

Spider-Man and Red Hulk take on an army of Moloids in this graffiti mural by Probs and Izer. Comic heads might recognize this as Joe Madureira’s style from his run on The Avenging Spider-Man which has some of my favorite Spidey/Hulk drawings probably ever and really makes me wish Spider-Man was in The Avengers movie.
It’s Real: A Mural of 85,794 Rubik’s Cubes
In Macau, China, there sits a 13-foot tall, 200-foot long mural made up of 85,794 Rubik’s Cubes. Seriously.
The project was created by Toronto-based Cube Works Studio, known for contorting Rubik’s Cubes into art. The mural hit the 2013 Guiness Book of World Records for the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube Mosaic. Fucking incredible to say the absolute least about the project.

“SUPER MARIO DOESN’T CALL ME A FAG SO WHAT THE FUCK MAKES YOU SO SPECIAL.”
This is the snarky 8-bit art of melonjaywalk. Each piece has a pretty unique story, for example, here’s the story behind the “Mario Fag” piece:
This was done..
I dunno’. It’s half a response to the question ‘why do you like video games so much’. Well, Mario’s not gonna’ complain about the state of the economy, or call me an abomination and tell me who I can’t marry, or criticize the way I dress, etc.
So how could I not prefer videogames to real life.
Check out the artist’s deviantART page for more awesome art with equally awesome stories behind each piece.

Daily Graffiti: Ren & Stimpy Edition
Captain Höek and Cadet Stimpy in street art form from the episode “Space Madness” which always creeped me out as a kid. The whole thing about eating soap always made me queasy.
Entire “Space Madness” episode embedded below for great justice.
