Imagine that!

I like clever things. Especially if they’re curvy too!

So there I was reading ThoughtsOnTheatre when I saw this amazing digitally enhanced image:

Finding myself a bit curious (no comments thank-you), I tracked it down to possibly my new favourite website: dornob! With a tagline of “design ideas daily”, it’s a visual feast of all things creative. Some of the items are amazing images in themselves, such as the grassy flip-flops:

dornob: Grass Sandals? Front-Yard Flip Flops Take Gardens to Go

Then there’s the slightly more macabre heart-shaped water/wine carafes:

dornob: Heart-Shaped Carafe & Decanter Set is Somewhat Creepy

When it comes to sensuous curves though, you’d be hard pushed to beat this gorgeous sink design:

But I think you’d have to go a long way to beat this bathroom sink for just plain oddity:

dornob:  Bathroom Waterfall Wall Sinks Show Off Daily Use & Flow

dornob: Bathroom Waterfall Wall Sinks Show Off Daily Use & Flow

The design is intended to emphasise the water usage and theoretically reduce waste.

Probably not a great choice for families with young boys though.

Just sayin’…

I love you man…

So I am generally grateful to misfits’ miscellany for his wit and repartee. He takes the time to not only visit these questionable pages, but oft times leaves some witty remark, reference or occasionally a faint smell of urine in the corners. In a comment elsewhere, he led me (via the power invested in me by Google) to this image:

Worth1000: Big Step

It may not actually have been the one he intended, but I’ve never let a little thing like a fact get in the way of a potentially entertaining yarn.

So a little more reading tells me that this was on a site with regular competitions for digital artists. A picture is indeed worth a 1000 words. And it can be manipulated so much more effecively than Telly Savalas can sing! This specific competition had the contestants begin with a standard stock photo of a bathroom, and pimp it up with Photoshop or whatever. A more recent one called for them to take a celebrity photo and “give them a new ‘do”. I encourage you to check out the whole site, it’s a scream, but here are a couple of my favourites from that particular contest:
