Artist Creates Relatable And Eye-Opening Illustrations

Cicada, a beautiful illustration series by the talented Shaun Tan.

Cicada is the story of an insect working in an office (much like a lot of us), and trying to make it through the day surrounded by people who simply do not care. Shaun Tan writes on his website that Cicada is, "a very simple 32-page picture book about the unspoken horrors of corporate white-collar enslavement... or is it? You never can tell what a bug is thinking."

Here are 10 pages of Cicada and we're already itching for more!

World Cow Project Asks Street Artists Around The World To Paint Cows As a Message Of Unity

World Cow is a dream where everyone in the world puts aside their differences and works together towards a brighter future.

In the beginning, Vermont artist DJ Barry and his wife, Cindy, were taking a scenic ride in Vermont when they came across a beautiful Holstein cow grazing by the side of the road. They stopped for a photo, which later inspired Cows For A Cause; a fundraiser for local nonprofits. 50%-100% of all artwork sales were donated to charity.

World Cow evolved from Cows For A Cause. The spots became the map of the world:" By doing our part to make the world a better place, we're creating a culture that promotes kindness and paying it forward", it says on their home page.  

Here are some of world cows. What a lovely idea!

Artist Creates Beautiful And Unique Pen Drawings Of Black Cats

Some of the images below are in fact created digitally, but a majority with ink! And all the details created with this fine ink tip is so beautiful and gives a Tim Burton-esque feel to them -- don't you think? 

It may feel Tim Burton-esque but the overall cuteness meter runs way higher. We adore this style!

The images below are all created by artist Luis Coelho, and there are prints available of certain cats, if you happen to fall as in love with these works of art as we did!

Satisfying End To 'Woman Yelling At Cat' Comic Comes (4 Parts)

We shared Part 1 on our site a few weeks ago but since then, part 2-4 has come out and the comic is complete! 

And yes, the ending is worth it. Story and art by talented Twitter user @unfins.

When we left off, our heroine (or antagonist, who really knows when it comes to this meme) is left distraught when the cat she normally yells at is no longer there. Desperately, she searches and puts up 'LOST' flyers around the town....waiting.

Below you'll find the complete story, from start to finish:

Macro-photography Shows The Immense Beauty Of Mushrooms

Marco-photographer extraordinaire, Alison Pollack, focuses her photography on fungi and Myxomycetes.

Pollack's Instagram account is jam-packed with stunning photos of these minuscule hypnotic mushrooms. In an interview with PetaPixel, Pollack reveals how she got started, "I started to get serious about mushroom and Myxomycete photography a couple of years ago, when I found and photographed my first Myxomycete. I had no idea what it was, so I looked it up online. I was immediately fascinated with the Myxomycete life cycle, and I have been avidly hunting and photographing them ever since.

As I looked for the tiny Myxos, I also started noticing really tiny fungi, and started photographing them as well. These tiny organisms are all over the forest when it rains, but they are so small that people just don't see them. My goal is to reveal their beauty and magic!"

You have definitely done so! Scroll down to see some of that magic mushroom revealed by Pollack:
