Dec 25, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

If you automatically assumed that these images were photoshopped in some way, you are 100 percent wrong. Korean artist JeeYoung Lee actually creates these landscapes within her small studio in Seoul (which is about 12 x 13 x 8 feet), not letting the size of her canvas determine the breadth of her creative vision. ...

Origami Masks You Won't Believe Are Actually Paper

Dec 23, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

I used to make origami cranes out of Starburst wrappers during university lectures, and by the end of the class I would have a row of tiny colorful birds to leave behind for the next group of tired students.
