It’s great to see artists taking chances and making their own big projects, like ‘Fall of Gods’, a illustrated book by Danish artist Rasmus Berggreen. He came up with this project inspired in Norse mythology, which is pretty badass by itself, and made astonishing, action packed pieces.

Here you can see some images from the book. For more information about it and more illustrations, please visit his portfolio at Behance! He’ll definitely enjoy you showing him some love. I hope you enjoy these amazing images as much as I did! Cheers. 😉

‘How I Started Writing Songs Again’, A TED Talk by Sting About How He Overcame Writer’s Block by Returning Home

Published by:

In his TED Talk, “How I Started Writing Songs Again,” former Police frontman Sting discusses how returning to his hometown of Wallsend in the Northeast of England helped the singer end a particularly bad bought of writer’s block that stretched over several years.

If you can’t write about yourself anymore, then who do you write about? It’s ironic that the landscape I’d work so hard to escape from and the community that I’d more or less abandoned should be the very landscape I’d have to return to to find my missing muse. As soon as I decided to honor the community I came from and tell their story, the songs came thick and fast. I’ve described it as a kind of projectile vomiting.

After witnessing the ancient mosaics of Pompeii, Chicago-based artist Jim Bachor was inspired to create his own mosaic art with a modern twist. He’s created all manner of portraits and pop culture imagery out of colorful tiles, but in 2013 he found a new application. He’s been filling in potholes in Chicago with mosaics. The mosaics are based on the design of the Chicago flag (white and blue stripes with red stars) and feature fake serial numbers or the word “Pothole.” He’s posted the addresses of his pothole mosaics on his site.
