Five For Friday #90

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” – Neil Gaiman

Sukron Mamun

Every single image found in Sukron Ma’mun’s portfolio is filled with the joy of life. Whether the subject is someone working or playing or just sitting, they each express a vitality and a strength paired with a sense of peace that is difficult to capture. [via 121Clicks]

Victor Enrich

Victor Enrich is an architectural photographer who combines photography, digital retouching and 3D graphics to transform and distort actual existing buildings. This is a real hotel in Munich which he rearranged 88 separate times. Whether it is floating off the ground, exploded into pieces, or even blown up like a ballon, each one is completely different and equally outlandish. [via Gizmodo]

Illustrator and graphic designer Christoph Niemann put together this wonderful tribute to the inventor of the Etch-a-Sketch, André Cassagnes. If you ever played with one of these as a child, you will appreciate the work that went into this short film. [via John Nack]

Wei Genshen

The only way to get a view like this is to either be flying or to do what Wei Gensheng does and work as a crane operator. Wei Gensheng captures incredible images like this everyday at his job in Shanghai. These images recently won him second prize in the Shanghai City Photography Competition. [via The Daily Mail]

Peter Callesen

Peter Callesen uses just one single sheet of A4 paper for his detailed and complex pieces. I can’t imagine the patience and steady hand it must take to do intricate work like this. [via demilked]
