Flickr is a great home for internet rascals of the creative type. Cody Brant’s wonky but eye-catching collage art definitely fit the bill. The magic randomness of cutting and pasting then committing the arrangement to permanence with a glue stick!

Incredibly Colorful Hand-Blown Glass Octopuses By Scott Bisson

Scott Bisson is an Oregon-based glass blowing enthusiast. Ever since he bent a piece of glass over a flame in his high school Chemistry class when he was seventeen, Bisson has been passionately creating beautifully colorful hand-blown glass creatures. Working as a flame and furnace worker, he is well accustomed to the world of heat and molten materials and works prolifically. He has been creatively active for nineteen years, and now specializing in borosilicate flame-work, Bisson has created work for over 80 galleries across America. These snakes, octopuses, lizards and squids are but a small sample of his many endearing pieces.

Bisson creates whimsical representations of the animal and natural world around him – including many different types of flowers, reeds, corals, reptiles, insects and bugs. Each are a labor of love and have an incredible amount of detail to them. The artists explains his obsession with getting it just right:

I put a little bit of myself into every work of art I create. That is how I breath life into each piece. If I don’t lose a piece a day from getting in over my head, then I am not pushing myself hard enough. Skill is the raw material of a great piece, and drive and energy make it take shape. (Source)

His perseverance, dedication and risk-taking shows in each piece. To see more of his curvaceous, elegant designs, visit his website here. (Via Bored Panda)

Joey Piziali

Joey Piziali’s work takes on abstraction full force with geometric order mixed with a bit of painterly chaos. See Joey’s work in San Francisco this Saturday in a group show at Guerrero Gallery. See more of Joey’s work after the jump.

Okay typography lovers, we got a juicy steak for you all in this post.  Michiel Van Der Born has gone from A-Z in acrylic.  When I stumbled upon this series, I found it refreshing to see this playful take on the good old alphabet.  Bon Appetite.

Alex Schubert’s Blobby Boys

I like to think of Alex Schubert’s Blobby Boys as a mid 90’s live action sitcom that never happened.  They smoke (and deal) weed, romp around the city on motorcycles, slime people, and steal your milk money all before they’ve had band practice.

William Lamson

Picture 11

I know. Anyone can string banana-hostages to a perfectly innocent tree; the gesture is simple enough, but who ever would’ve thought to do this? The playfulness, exuberance and creativity in William Lamson’s little “interventions” make you reconsider space, how we interact with it, and how we see the world. I just imagine attempting to climb to the top of these slippery slapstick yellow rungs only to discover what I’m dealing with is not a playstructure tree but…bananas. And if that’s not enough, check out the vid after the jump that shows the artist in a Hell-raiser style mask, made entirely of bananas with dynamite wicks on the end. One by one he lights them, causing them to explode in Chiquita’s ultimate pimple/fruit popping extravaganza.

Anne Hardy’s Fabricated Time And Space

Anne Hardy photographs fantastical spaces where only the residue of mysterious happenings remain. These spaces are are meticulously staged with everything from the walls to small radio knobs completely created by the artist only to be photographed and then immediately destroyed. All that is left is the mystifying documentation that acts as a relic of a time and place where something once took place. (via vvork)
