Jesse Tyler Ferguson Plays Different Members of the Supreme Court in a Comedy Sketch About Marriage Equality

Published by:

Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) plays different members of the Supreme Court in a comedy sketch to promote his Tie the Knot charity’s campaign to have couples send save the date cards for their same-sex marriages to the court.

Ferguson portraits Justices Alito, Roberts, Kagan, and Ginsburg as they call each other to figure out why they’ve been invited to so many weddings and hatch a plan to score free cake.

Tie the Knot has put up a site where users can create special save the date cards in a variety of styles to send to their favorite Justice.

Found Pieces of Driftwood Creatively Transformed Into Colorful Superhero, Viking, Fisherman and Farmer Figures

Published by:

French artist Anna Foucher has created Boud’Bois, a wonderful series in which she transforms found pieces of driftwood into wonderfully fun figures such as Batman, Robin, Darth Vader along with assorted vikings, fishermen and farmers.

(translated) The Boud’Bois arise from driftwood picked up at the water’s edge to the likings of walks, trips. More than just a piece of tree, driftwood, this lost wood, worn by water is the result of nature; he has a story to tell …It is this history that I unveil the sculpture, painting. Inspired by the comic, I made a cheerful style, humorous and naive. Designed alone or in pairs, each character is unique.

Out of Order book rainbow

Out of Order by Laurenz Brunner and Marianne Vierø is a collection of patterns found at the Gerrit Rietveld Library in Amsterdam. The most stunning pattern they found is a collection of 53 books, each with a gradated color cover faded by the sun. The grouping of titles of books never borrowed from the library is an interesting read as well.
