“Master glassblower and stained glass artist Loren Stump in California has wowed the internet with an extraordinary display of virtuosity. He created a “loaf” of glass, called murrine, out of carefully layered glass rods that, when sliced, reveal a painstakingly detailed work of art in cross-section.
"The most impressive thing about his work is that the resulting image can only be seen in its entirety after the murrini is cut…"
This is incredible.
"I don’t listen to what art critics say. I don’t know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is.” –Jean-Michel Basquiat (Photo: New York Times Magazine, 1985)

Amazing Illustrations by Artist Chiara Bautista
Chiara Butista aka MILK is an enigmatic artist from Tucson, Arizona. Her work is insanely detailed and appears to be riddled with symbolism. Many of her subjects, which sport antlers or tentacles, are captured in chaotic, angst-ridden moments which are balanced perfectly by femininely decorated backgrounds and cartoonish animal friends. You could scour these images for hours and still find new details every time you revisit them. His work is rich with symbolism inspired cephalopods, falling planes, deer, piercing arrows, wounds, teddy bears and drugs which may be as much a symbol for obsessive love.

The Girl In Blue
In 1933, a girl dressed all in blue came to Willoughby, Ohio on a Greyhound bus. After spending the night at a boarding school and getting to meet everyone she decided to take a train to New York. Upon seeing the train, she dropped her luggage and sprinted for it. She was hit and killed by the train. No one knew her name or whether her death was an accident or a suicide.The only thing on her person was 90 cents and a ticket to Pennsylvania.
Her identity remained a mystery until a title agency researched through some records and found her name — Josephine Klimczak. County records, however, have not changed the death certificate; she is still listed as The Girl in Blue.
The bottom of the grave reads “Unknown but not forgotten.”
