In the little American town of Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, exists a secret world that very few people are aware of. If you look carefully around town, you’ll notice itty bitty doors placed on the side of buildings. They are urban fairy houses…
Jonathan B. Wright, children’s books author, started creating little fairy doors in his home in 1993 for his own children (two daughters). Then in 2005, the first little door appeared in a public place in his city, and many others followed.
They can be on the side of a real-size door, in a side street, inside a shop, on any place really (a restaurant, a school, a public library…). Sometimes they are outside, right in the middle of a wall, and sometimes you stumble upon them as you are looking up a fairytale book in the town library!
If you walk around this town you may pass them by without noticing them.
Some people have installed a fairy house door in their own home or garden. We don’t know if any fairies have set up houses there…

Edible Chocolate LEGOs by Akihiro Mizuuchiby Christopher Jobson on August 13, 2014
Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi designed a modular system for creating edible chocolate LEGO bricks. Chocolate is first poured into precisely designed moulds that after cooling can be popped out and used as regular LEGOs.
It’s hard to determine exactly how functional they are, it seems like he had success in building a number of different things, though I can only imagine how quickly they might melt in your hands, but I suppose that’s beside the point; this is two of the greatest things in the world fused together.
If you google around there are numerous attempts at creating various forms of LEGO in chocolate or other food, but this appears to be the most detailed and well-designed of anything out there.

“To date I’ve made over 700 sand paintings in New York City as well as in other cities like Chicago, Miami, Detroit, New Orleans, Philadelphia, San Francisco,San Cristobal de las Casas. Its a process of pouring colored sand through my hands for 6-8 hours on average.”
According to a recent interview, Joe sees more in his art than you may think initially:
“Each grain really represents a being or living thing, you know? Metaphorically, then you’ve got billions of living things and they’re all working together to create something beautiful.”
