Well this is just silly, and by silly we mean near genius and amazingly crafted. Brad Hill took a stab at the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in S'more form, and to us, this is a home run. Not sure if you want to eat this after, because when you make something like this, you sort of want to stare at it. And blog it. And Facebook it. Then Instagram it. Then maybe eat it after you tweet about it. That would be our order of operations.

NYC artist Don Porcella creates erotic (and non-erotic too) sculptures and installations using "low-brow" materials like pipe-cleaners and wax. The recipient of many prizes and fellowships, Porcella aims to poke fun at the absurdities of consumer culture and the human condition through comically awkward and decidedly unsexy nudes.

Because it's Halloween, we are still trying to help you with costume ideas. From Guillermo Fajardo, "I've always wondered what if the characters from our favorite cereal boxes were actual real life moving and dramatic creatures.

In a recent article on What's Hot, What's Not, Frieze Magazine mentioned inhabiting a transgendered space as grounds for an art practice that is hot right now.

Somewhere, Mario Puzo is very proud of the Horse Head Pillow Case. For those of you that love the Godfather, you know that this is a fun revenge-light gag gift. But for those of you who may be dealing with someone who doesn't know the Godfather, this may ruin a first date and, um, trip to the bedroom.

Getting offended can be such a fun feeling, especially when it's art and humor where no one is being spared. Bob Staake has created a series of "Satire, Humor and Visual Parody of Classic Children's Books From the 1940s Through 1960s."

Russian graffiti artist Nikita Nomerz continues to create astonishing street art. Throughout the years, Nomerz has traveled around his native homeland finding abandoned structures in cities long since forgotten. By adding eyes and facial gestures he anthropomorphizes old buildings in a way that gives them a unique character.

The weekend is over, and now we're into another week. What did you do on your days off? Apparently, most Americans split it between sleeping, leisure, cooking and cleaning with all other smaller categories trailing behind. Here are two graphics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that explain what most Americans do on their down time. It's not exactly how we spend our time, but it's interesting to see what most people supposedly do.

We have seen a good deal of 3D art in the past, a few street pieces that give the illusion of more than meets the eye, mostly constructed with chalk. But, we haven't seen the style and approach applied to the home, and if you got the open floorplan, why not have a little fun with your setup?

'For years, the French artist Baptiste Debombourg has been gradually perfecting his unique technique taking to a level where he’s now able to create detailed re-interpretations of famous classic paintings. Instead of relying on the usual art mediums, like acrylic or oil paints, he takes these simple objects we use in our every day lives and creates thought-provoking works that blend classic and contemporary art...'
