1. This gorgeous Frida Kahlo sketch is part of a series titled A Peek Inside the Notebooks of Famous Authors, Artists and Visionaries. Special mention: Kurt Cobain and da Vinci's diaries.
2. And this Tim Burton sketch, via the same website, is part of Inside the Sketchbooks of Famous Artists; Monet, van Gogh and Matisse included.
3. Slinkachu, discovered first via this website, is a UK based artist and photographer. His Little People Project uses miniature model train set characters to create art installations in urban areas, using the surroundings. The result is both whimsical and thought provoking - little people in big cities, caught in the rat race, unnoticed, alone.

5. Coachella, on my bucket list, where music meets art meets drugs, has tripped out art installations every year. See this year's installations here, some of which are super cool and some of which I don't get at all.
6. Banksy. Need I say more? The pictures below are painted on the Israeli West Bank barrier, surrounding Palestinian territories, and considered illegal by the UN. See more of his genius here.

7. Famous Phtographers Pose with their Iconic Images. Some fabulous stuff here.
8. Is this the coolest or what? Artist INSA creates Street Art GIFs by painting over a wall several times and photographing each stage, to create a stop motion-style gif.
9. Aesop's Fables are brought to whimsical life in this 1925 Japanese edition by artist Takeo Takei. Below is the only fable I could remember. For shame. (via here and here)
10. Wine stain portraits by Amelia Fais Harnas. She creates the fabric by staining cloth with wine, and embroidery to reinforce the pattern. I'm loving the layered intricacy and character the stains lend to the features. (via)
