Hmmm, does crowd-sourcing in outer space sound surprising to you? Startlingly beautiful photographs of the surfaces of Mars, in locations picked by we, the gen pop, through NASA’s HiWish program.

Ji Yong-Ho’s Used Tire Sculptures breathe new, organic life into a “tired” substrate: he crafts stunning sharks, wild dogs, and other creatures from tires, steel, wood, and styrofoam.
Patrick Action is Lord of the Buildings: his Matchstick Minas Tirith was finished 2/16/10 after three years and consists of 420k matchsticks, 24k blocks, and 100s of structures. Thanks, Hutchison!
Vandalism is bad, kids, but we can’t help but chuckle at TrustoCorp’s Subversive Street Signs; none of them endanger the public welfare while maximizing (and befuddling) public mindshare.
We wish they were t-shirts, but our geek antennae are still tingling over Chop Shop’s trio of uber-nerdy prints; they include the Nerd Rider, The Craftsman, and The Squid and Robot.

Matthew Albanese’s Strange Worlds photography looks like tilt shift at first, but they’re actually meticulously detailed miniature sets; he uses everything from plaster to paprika to make them.
Sorry, Ash, you’re not the first to try and catch ’em all, and you won’t be the last: Squirtle and gang go really old school with this collection of Pokemon as traditional Japanese art.
He-Man was never the sharpest sword in the armory, which explains this Mr. Villains Class of 1983 “photo”; this fantastic retro poster by Christopher Lee is a must for MOTU fans.
Taking him four years to complete, Jens Gustafsson’s My MS Paint World is the Sistine Chapel of bitmaps; it’s 8883 x 7636 pixels large (8 feet x 8 feet) and takes up a 203 BMP file.
