“The Cornershop” isn’t your normal neighborhood corner store, even though it just looks like that at first glance. Located in Bethnal Green, east London, British artist Lucy Sparrow filled the entire corner shop with 4,000 hand-sewn felt products, including chips, magazines, candy, frozen dinners, canned goods, toiletries, cereal boxes, cigarettes, and even a full-sized cash register. It took Sparrow about seven months to complete and began with a successful plea for help on Kickstarter. If you like those soft and plush product, you can purchase through The Cornershop website.

With the storm coming, the ocean moves with violent force to create waves that curl up and crash down again in an instant. Dark, ominous clouds and streaks of lightning fill the sky and transform the world into an alien landscape . By only looking at these dramatic photos, you will almost feel the mist of the ocean water spraying up throughout the air! Excellent work!
Who said aluminum cans should only go to recycle bin when you’ve finished drinking their contents. With creativity, someone builds can sculptures and someone creates pop culture characters. Japanese artist Makaon takes these would-be discarded cans and turns them into those famous pop culture icons like Super Mario Brothers, Batman, Pikachu, and even Buzz Lightyear.
To build these works, firstly, Makaon need to find cans with right color which matches the characters he want to create. For example, Coca Cola provides Mario with a bright red hat while Carlsberg Beer gives Yoshi his green sheen. Then he takes small pieces of the aluminum and bends it to form the shapes. Even though these characters are angular in shape with a rigid-looking, but it is still quite cool and fun to see them.
