Amazing collaboration between London-based designer Oscar Lhermitte and design studio Kudu, this lunar globe isn’t just topographically accurate – it can rotate along with the phases of the actual moon! While created on a much smaller scale (1:20 million), “Moon” is based on data from NASA and computer outfitted with the same memory as the Apollo 11 computers. Check out more images and their Kickstarter video below!

I recently discovered the photography of Ye Rin Mok, who has shot for the likes of Anthen, Nylon, Tokion, Theme, Spin, Monocle, and the list really does go on. Looking through Mok’s portfolio I discovered a large number of the photos in which the subject is actually facing away from the camera. I found the gallery jarring, and really quite powerful. I took a class in art school called and we learned that there is a little sensor in the brain that is constantly looking for faces. This is why the bumper and headlights on a car look like a smiling face, and also why there is such tension in these photos. There are no faces in these portraits. http://www.yerinmok.com

Korean comic illustrator Kim Jung Gi is on a completely different level from everyone else. He creates insanely detailed large scale drawings without sketching anything; imagery just flows right out of him. His precision with ink is savant-like, and he says it comes from having a good memory. I’ve never really seen anything like it. Have a look at more drawings and several astonishing live drawing videos below. Prepare yourself.
