José Suris IV is a Brooklyn-based artist and “a 3D illustrator who loves cats.” José creates awesome sculptures and masks using paper, styrofoam, wireform, and paperclay. His creations are beautiful, playful, and incredibly detailed. We wish we could go out into the woods to play with them too.
“Through layers of paper and shades of color, Suris produces extremely detailed shapes with incredible texture that gives each form a lifelike presence. The wide range of final products includes some pieces that are fully sculpted creatures, others that are simple masks, and still others that are bodiless heads which Suris mounts and hangs on display just like a taxidermist might. For Suris, it seems that anything and everything sparks the creative process, including internet videos, cartoons, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Pokémon’s Eevee, friends’ plays, and stories that the artist hears in everyday life.”

To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life; biological narratives, emotions, movement, balance and observations about life’s subtleties and overtures. Her aesthetic ranges from the hyper-real, to the surreal,fantastic, and the grotesque. Ellen’s creative process is truly her own, she enjoys making and engineering original material combinations to suit her needs.

Yago Partal, a graphic artist based in Barcelona, has created an awesome photo series entitled Zoo Portraits, depicting a wide variety of animals who all share two things in common: they like dressing up in stylish clothing and posing for fashion portraits.
From the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship come these awesome photos of a Van Cat and a fox in Turkey who appear to have become best friends. Living in eastern Turkey on the shores of Lake Van (a saltwater lake and the largest lake in Turkey), these two furry chums are often seen playing together.
“According to local fishermen, the pair were first seen together when they shared some fish left over from the fisherman. They soon began to play together and it has now been over a year since they began this unusual friendship.”

Giuse Modica (aka Giuse) is a Dutch artist and illustrator who loves skateboarding so much that he created a series of illustrations depicting various animals enjoying his favourite sport. Complete with a dog doing an ollie and a mighty eagle pulling off a 360 flip, the series is entitled Animals Skateboarding and we think it’s pretty awesome.

What would you do if you suddenly spotted a fox enthusiastically licking one of your windows? Would you have the presence of mind to grab a camera?
More importantly, why is this cute little fix licking this window? For the moisture? For the sheer enjoyment of it? Is this how Russian foxes ask humans for a snack?
At the :27 mark you can see what appears to be a second fox walking past in the background. We’re wondering if the windowlicker was put up to on a double-dog-dare.
It’s easy to make excuses for animal thieves - poor hungry creatures in a cruel, cold world. But a starving animal wouldn’t be as choosy as the seagull who strolls into an English seaside shop to snatch packages of chips - but only one flavor, the cheese Doritos. Others take stuff they couldn’t possibly need, like the fox in Germany that stole a hundred shoes. And for some their special abilities almost result in the perfect crime: staff at a safari park had no idea where all the water in their hot tub was going night after night, till finally this photo revealed the culprit.
