I like how these photos by Ian Pool makes superheroes and villains seem just as human as the rest of us. Made me laugh out loud.

This is definitely an adult collectible. 3D illustrator Jessica Fortner‘s clay creations are cute yet somewhat gory and creepy. From now till Mar 29th (midnight PST), Toycyte is giving away a 12″ Furry Friend figure as a prize on this week’s custoMONDAY contest. All you need to do is name a Furry Friend.

Meanwhile, the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are is OUT! Go here to watch.

I WANT THIS! Bodum‘s Bistro toasters, available in almost every colour of the rainbow. Made from plastic, rubber and metal; unfortunately not available in every country. Sigh. I would love the pink one.

Famed graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister has done it again! He has taken Levi’s Original button-fly 501 and literally stripping the iconic silhouette down to its raw materials, in order to design and execute an exclusive window installation for American Rag which debut this month. This collaboration with Levi’s has a limited run of 501 museum-quality, poster reproductions in all Levi’s and American Rag stores in Los Angeles and San Francisco area. Additional works from the series will be introduced in the coming months.

The Levi’s brand’s work with Sagmeister is the latest in a number of art-world alliances, including high-end apparel collections with The Andy Warhol Foundation for The Visual Arts and following the success of innovative design partnerships with iconic artists such as Damien Hirst and Shepard Fairey.

Super talented director Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are poster is finally out! The official site is not up yet but a trailer is just around the corner. 7 more months to go till the movie’s release….

If you have not read Maurice Sendak’s internationally acclaimed children’s book, it is the story about a young boy named Max, who was sent to his room without supper as punishment for making mischief in a wolf costume. Max’s imagination then transformed his room into the land of the Wild Things. He became their King after he conquered his fears of them by staring into their yellow eyes without blinking once.

I’m so excited and can’t wait to see how his adaptation turns out!
