Just in time for Easter, here’s a brand new entry from the Department of Extraordinary Eggshell Artists: Polish artist Piotr Bockenheim spends countless hours using a tiny electric drill, an awesomely delicate touch, and immeasurable patience to turn goose egg shells into exquisite sculptures.

Head over to Piotr’s DeviantART gallery to view more.

The Japanese take cute to a completely different level. Case in point: these tiny edible kitties, which are both adorably cute and tasty too. Caroline, a Japanese mom, made these for Cat’s Day (also known as Neko no Hi), which was on February 22. The little kitties are made from nerikiri, a sweet white-bean paste that’s mixed with a type of rice that’s similar in texture to mochi. Caroline also made all of the little accessories herself too.

How do you even bring yourself to eat these? I have enough guilt over chocolate bunnies.

Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

Every day life is such a beautiful thing, and these display that nicely. Tremendous.

Photographs and Watercolors Merge in Surreal Paintings by Aliza Razell

Using self-portrait photographs and watercolors, artist Aliza Razell has been exploring several abstract narratives by merging the two mediums in Photoshop. Her first series, Anesidora , involves the story of Pandora’s Jar (Pandora’s box was actually a jar, a detail misinterpreted in the 1400s), while the second is inspired by the Finnish word ikävä, meaning the feeling of missing someone or something. You can see much more of her work over on Flickr, and you might interested to know Razell is the older sister of young photgorapher Fiddle Oak, featured here last year.
