There so much to love about the Lego Album Covers tumblr. It’s funny how the shape or hint of an image lets your brain just work out what it is. Of course, that does rely on you knowing what an album cover actually is – do mp3 artists do them anymore? ;P j/k
If you don’t see a favorite, you can request, but check the archives. They have a lot.

Utopian art is a strange term. These particular works feel creepy as shit to me, so not sure what sort of utopia people are thinking of… That said, the imagery is strangely appealing, particularly in the colors.
“A famous Polish painter specializing in the field of utopian art, Beksi?ski executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a ‘Baroque’ or a ‘Gothic’ manner. His creations are mainly two periods, the first period of the works are generally considered to contain expressionistic color, with a strong style of “utopian realism” architecture surreal, like a doomsday scenario worries. The second period more abstract style, with the main features of formalism.”
Beksi?ski was murdered in 2005.

This is super crazy awesome. Two weeks to make the fox (which is made from leather).
The Fox’s Den
First of all, this installation is completely(!) made of paper and leather. All of the objects were handmade with orange colored paper, some are enhanced with leather. The whole, incredible installation took 68 tubes of glue and 144 large sheets of paper.
The fox sculpture alone, which was made from Hermès’ leather remnants, took two weeks to make. Each small piece was cut by hand and then glued slowly together so that the fox could look as realistic as possible.
France-based graphic design studio Zim&Zou created this unique artwork on behalf of Hermés for their store window display in Barcelona.
