Raise your hand if you drooled a little bit when you saw that table with the typewriter on it. Yeah, I thought so.

"Within my artistic practice, I maintain an interest in exploring the space between the two- dimensional and three- dimensional, hybridizing painting, printmaking and sculpture. I feel my work is dependent upon various processes, such as cutting as drawing, the relationship between deconstruction and construction, and the inherent malleability and vulnerability of my chosen materials, namely fabric and paper."
I've been getting some stuff in my inbox that is so cool, it just can't wait for the weekend. First, check out these sweet, animated Valentines that Chrispix sent me yesterday. Great job! I love the train. If you go to the YouTube page, there's also a photoshop template and instructions to download.
Second, Yann sent me a link to these limited edition prints of an image I featured just before Valentine's Day. Multiple color schemes are available, but I love the grey one.
Nice work, people. Keep it coming!
Soon, the streets of London will be swarming with 250, artist decorated elephants that will be auctioned by Sotheby's to aid in saving the species from extinction. This elephant is named Phoolan and is being decorated by the collective named Treatment Rooms. Also, check out that truck! Dope!

British prop man, Jem Stansfield worked out a way to use two vacuum cleaner motors, some plywood and some rubber to turn himself into a human fly. The most amazing thing is that it works on rough surfaces, like brick, and smooth surfaces as well. Nice!
Many more pictures over at Design Boom.
