London-based French photographer Franck Allais uses photoshop to play with perspective and add an unexpected element of whimsy to his photos. While the monster made of a hamburger and french fries is pretty great, we’re especially fond of the images where small toys are transformed into giants. Head over to Franck’s website to view more of his work.

Today is the third and final day of the Emerald City Comicon here in Seattle, WA. The awesome vibe is still going strong and Archie McPhee is still proudly occupying booth #2013, doing our part to fan the flames of wonderful, whimsical geekery that permeate every corner of the Washington State Convention Center.
One of the happenings we promised would take place during ECCC was the opportunity to meet the Original Unicorn, and boy howdy, was that ever an awesome experience. As you can see from the many images posted above, not only did people get to meet the Unicorn, people also hugged the Unicorn, communed with the Unicorn, and even danced with the Unicorn.
Then there was the unfortunate incident with the poor Star Trek “Redshirt” on the worst away mission ever - accidentally stabbed by a unicorn when approaching for a simple hug. Life can be so cruel. Hilarious, but cruel.
There’s still a little time left to come over to booth #2013 and say hello. Unicorns, horses, anthropomorphic bacon characters and squirrels wearing underpants would love to meet you.
Hey look, it’s a Baconsaurus! We thought they were extinct.
If you’re invited to a party and asked to bring some food along with you, you’ll make an awesome impression if you bring something like this. You can’t go wrong with bacon.

At first glance you might think you’re looking at a little dinosaur, but look again and you’ll see this creature is unlike any dinosaure you’ve seen before. Entitled Flight of the Homo Digitalis, this strange and awesome sculpture was created by Australian DeviantARTist postapocalypsia, who says of his piece:
“I did this a few years ago and was fortunate enough to have it published in Spectrum 12. The title “Flight of the Homo Digitalis” relates to the “hand made” and “hands on” aspects of our society becoming less and less, like the extinction of an animal. So much for lightheartedness!”

This is a seriously awesome nativity scene. We’ve never seen a geekier crèche.
“Who needs religious icons when you can have Angel Batman, Shepards Bill and Ted, Three Wise Vaders, Ryker and Deanna Joseph and Mary and uh, T-Rex. I think he’s subbing in for a barn animal.
Peace on Earth, and goodwill toward fictional men.”
Every autumn the people of Jucker Farmart, an amazing farm located in Seegräben, a municipality in the canton of Zürich, Switzerland, organize an awesome celebration of the harvest season in the form of an impressive and entertaining pumpkin exhibition. The annual event attracts visitors from near and far and gives farmers a chance to show off their produce. One of the ways they do this is by assembling their colourful gourds into large and whimsical pieces of art. A different theme for the pumpkin sculptures is chosen each year - usually something relevant to that year’s current events. So this year, because of the 2012 Summer Olympics, the chosen theme was Olympic sporting events. In the top photo you see the Dressage display, photographed by Jonathan Jones.
Back in 2010 the theme was dinosaurs. Adrian Senn photographed the awesome pumpkin Tyrannosaurus Rex seen in the second photo. Fearsome though he clearly is, there’s something about that T. rex that makes us want to give him a hug.
