We love it when the natural world produces something that’s as awesomely cute as it is surprisingly creepy. Such is the case with this endearing little caterpillar whose face bears a striking resemblance to Hello Kitty, complete with adorable kitty ears.

California-based artist Mark Bryan (previously featured here) created an awesome series of oil paintings entitled Things From Space. The series depicts a distant dystopian future in which the Earth is under attack by flying saucers and robots (even robot rabbits). Fighting back against the invaders are the likes of the Mona Lisa in a space helmet and Hello Kitty piloting a giant robot.

Nowtoo Sugi lives in Japan and likes to relax by creating awesome and unusually colourful works of latte art. It’s a truly delicious and delightful hobby.
Starting this past February, Sugi began using colored bartender syrups to, as the hobby artist says, “paint” on coffee. Sugi isn’t the only one to create colorful lattes, but is certainly one of the best.
So, for example, Sugi uses Blue Hawaii syrup for, well, blue and strawberry syrup for red or pink. The colors are mixed with steamed milk for variation.
Photographer Christine Zona travels around San Francisco and Los Angeles photographing the awesome and incredibly exuberant participants in the world of competitive air guitar playing.
"These guys are amazing,” Zona says. “They live ‘normal’ lives but become these larger than life characters on stage just once a year. Following their air guitar careers and photographing them has become an addiction.” Zona is currently putting together a book on the series. Check a few photos out below and then be sure to head on over to her website to see more of her work.
Kawaii! Forever on the cutting edge of cuteness, “Cute Toast Art“ is one of the latest cute crazes to sweep Japan. The goal is simple: create the cutest piece of toast you can and then see if you have guts to consume something so incredibly adorable. The best part is, making ridiculously cute toast is surprisingly easy.
Here’s how you do it yourself:
1. Cut a square of aluminum foil to fit the shape of a slice of bread.
2. Draw the design of you choice on the aluminum foil with a pen.
3. Cut the parts you want to darken while toasting.
4. Lay the aluminum foil over the bread.
5. Toast in the toaster oven and enjoy!
Illustrator Edwin David, based in Taipei, Taiwan, takes us back to the very beginning of the Alien vs. Predator rivalry. It appears that hostilities first arose between slavering Xenomorph and Predator babies due to the refusal to share one sweet little lolly: “It started with candy… “
We’ve always suspected that the universe needs more candy.
