Vojtech Ruzicka dressed as a character from the computer game “World of Warcraft” stands in a field near the town of Kamyk nad Vltavou, Czech Republic.

Ruzicka designed and made his own fur lined flowing gowns, decorated with skulls. To complete his costume, he painted his face blue and dyed his beard a glowing orange before taking his place in the forest as the Azeroth fighters defended their planet against the Burning Legion.

“I always forget the real world, it relaxes my mind”, he told Reuters.

Surreal And Slightly Morbid Illustrations By Virginia Mori

Young girls in dark dresses with black hair around their doll-like faces – these are the main characters of Italian illustrator who creates surreal drawings with a touch of horror.

Virginia Mori, 36, lives and works in Pesaro and Milan, Italy. Her favorite media are pencil, ink, and ballpoint pen on paper. The artist gain following because of her unique, dark and surreal style and imagery.

“I can’t say how I arrived at this style,” Virginia told to stylenochaser. “It has been a long and slow journey filled with a lot of research, but everything came very naturally, in a very instinctive way. I just followed what I like to do.”

Artist’s illustrations often have a melancholic or the nightmarish feel to them.

“I am not trying to explain anything with certainty with my art. I just want to suggest strange feelings and situations in a metaphoric way.”

Narrative Dramas Unfold In Robert Proch’s Multi-Dimensional Glitched Paintings And Murals

Robert Proch combines the aesthetics of street art and fine art in his dizzyingly complex paintings and murals. The artist engages multiple perspectives, glitched repetitions of figures, architectural motifs, and tightly controlled color palettes to create his distinctive style. Scenes tend to radiate out from a central perspective point, surrounded by abstracted shapes and atmospheric brushstrokes.

Proch’s artist statement describes his work as mini-narratives that “examine the modern human condition using vivid colors and tangible emotions. Sentimentality, ambition, fear, loss, hubris, greed, and friendship play their roles in snapshot dramas.”

From Game Of Thrones To Harry Potter: Film And TV Library Designs Give Fans Insight Into Iconic Scene

With recent Game of Thrones news suggesting that Samwell Tarly could be the TRUE heir to the Iron Throne, it’s a perfect opportunity to explore where he educated himself: the Citadel.

The impressively-extravagant library features a huge astrolabe suspended in mid-air, mechanically mirroring the axis, rotation and position of the show’s fictional planet relative to its sun. Eagle-eyed viewers will notice it looks remarkably similar to the mechanical structure we see in the show’s opening titles.

Other film library locations to feature in Neville Johnson’s designs include:

The Beast’s library in Beauty and the Beast – Filmed on location at the Biblioteca Joanina in Coimbra, Portugal, the baroque style offers a spectacular and elegant set. In the film, the library was given as a gift to Belle by The Beast.

Sunnydale High School library in Buffy the Vampire Slayer – The octagonal library served as the base for Buffy and her school pals to research demonic activity and train up on their slaying skills. Set high above, hemispherical windows provide eerie and atmospheric lighting. The show celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Hogwarts Library in Harry Potter – Home to thousands of books covering everything from law to invisibility and dragons, Hogwarts library is an impressive display of English gothic architecture. Large windows and deep-brown arched beams support a beautiful and ornate ceiling. This year marks 17 years since ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ first hit cinemas.

The school library in The Breakfast Club – It’s been 33 years since the release of the John Hughes classic, which featured the famous “brat pack” actors troupe. The library features six oak tables, organised into three rows. An abstract sculpture takes centre position, as light oak finishes and neon lighting reflects the 80s perfectly.

Clever KFC Ads Perfectly Replaced Fire With Spicy Fried Chicken

The best print ads often make you look twice. A perfect example? This campaign for KFC Hot and Spicy out of Hong Kong.

In a clever and well executed set of ads, Ogilvy Hong Kong replaces fire in photography—shots of the Space Shuttle, a rocket-powered race car and a group of Power Ranger stand-ins—with blown-up (in more ways than one) images of spicy fried chicken.

There’s not much to the concept, spotlighted by Campaign Brief Asia, but in this case that’s a good thing. Once you get the concept, you get the concept and can just sit back and appreciate the craft.

A Collection Of Hand-Painted Movie Posters From Africa

This art form in African countries was at its peak during the 1980s and 1990s. During this time, artists would let their imagination run wild in order to create posters that would never fail to draw audiences to Africa’s dilapidated cinema halls, so they used their fantasy to add scenes, weapons, and characters that didn’t even exist in the original movie.
