When billionaire Donald Trump accused Mexico this week of sending drugs, criminals, and rapists to the U.S., he stirred anger among many south of the border. So one Mexican artist decided to give them outlet - a pi?ata in the presidential candidate's likeness.

Thieves steal six woolly hats in first island robbery in 50 years
The island in the far west of the Small Isles has fewer than 30 residents, no police station or village hall and usually enjoys a crime rate of zero. The Community Shop was previously left unlocked. Most upsetting for [manager] Julie was that they stole six of her hand-knitted Canna wool hats which were in the shop on a sale or return basis.

Books as you've never seen them before
To create new art, Brian Dettmer trashes old books. The painter-turned-sculptor takes outdated reference materials such as textbooks and encyclopedias, seals them with varnish, then carves away at their pages with an X-Acto knife. Dettmer knifes through books swiftly from cover to cover to reveal images that explore our relationship to information. He adds no color or text; it's all what he calls "a subtractive sculptural process."

Bullied Teen Designs Her Own Prom Dress And Becomes Prom Queen
18-year-old Kyemah McEntyre designed a prom dress that is anything but typical. The New Jersey resident, inspired by her African heritage, had a local seamstress from Markell's Closet hand-sew the dress from McEntyre's sketch. McEntyre was chosen to be prom queen, and this fall she will be attending the Parsons School of Design.

Teen buys crop top on Amazon, mom reviews it with help from cat
When her 16-year-old daughter bought a crocheted crop top on Amazon, Christy, who goes by the username sb043 on the site, posted a scathing review for the summery garment."I probably couldn't legally post a picture of what it looks like if she attempts to wear it...To be fair, it does cover all of the cats nipples, however, she hates the weave," Christy writes in her review. At least she is fair.

The enchanted art of Leszek Kostuj
Artist Leszek Kostuj was born in Poland and studied art in Poznan. He is obviously not afraid to use color. His art is a mix of outsider art and surrealism, and in the process of telling these surreal stories he uses everything from acrylic and oil (his favorites) to drawing and computer graphics.

There are some pretty cool screen printed ties I've seen too. I've got some masculine oriented greeting cards, but typical traditional style - not geeky or humorous. However, that's a big niche: guy humour, geeky, techy,...  Read more...

6 curious kids interview their moms about life and love
As an adult, the idea of interviewing your mom can seem pretty scary. Kids, on the other hand, are fearless interviewers, especially when Mom is the interviewee. Their questions range from silly to tough to profound, delivered with genuine curiosity. The bottom line? You just never know what kids are going to ask next.
