Most of us still have fond memories of our childhood days: playing outside with our friends, getting in trouble for things that seem pretty hilarious today, and generally going about without a care in the world. And to illustrate this wonderful feeling, artist Tauhid Bondia started Crabgrass, a webcomic that captures the lives of two boys, Kevin and Curtis, and all the fun they had while growing up in the 80s.
In a recent interview with Bored Panda, Tauhid said that he has been drawing since he was a kid, and added that he was lucky enough to have a mother that supported his art. “That’s so important for young artists. Just having someone encourage them to keep it up,” said the artist.
As housing prices keep going up, people are choosing smaller, more affordable homes. Many times these homes come with a challenge – to use all of the available space for all necessary furniture and household appliances. One design team from Taipei City, Taiwan, called ‘A Little Design’ have taken on such a challenge for one of their customers.
The idea was to maximize all of the available space in a 22sq.m (236ft. sq) apartment. This was no simple task – the owner asked for a mezzanine floor for their bed and desk, flexible shelves and most importantly – a bathtub. The company succeeded with flying colors – the finished apartment is both cozy and practical. It’s certainly the kind of apartment you wouldn’t mind coming back to after a hard day at work!
Manhattan’s skyline is about to get thrown for a loop – literally. Plans have officially been unveiled to construct the world’s first U-shaped skyscraper in New York City, and it’s going to push the limits of architecture above the curve.
The Big Bend is an ambitious project being carried out by Oiio Studio, a world-renowned design team previously confronted by the city’s land usage restrictions. “If we manage to bend our structure instead of bending the zoning rules of New York we would be able to create one of the most prestigious buildings in Manhattan,” they wrote on their official website about their plan to circumvent the laws by building long instead of tall.
There is nothing more refreshing than stumbling upon a colorful mural when wandering the dull and repetitive streets of cities. Street artists make sure to bring life with their colors and imaginations to the most tucked-away spots of their neighborhoods. This young Argentinian artist has been recognized worldwide and has had a chance to paint in numerous countries. Fio Silva stands out with her larger-than-life wildlife figures often spreading their wings in motion in fantasy-like settings. Urban art is probably at its peak so far with the most transformative ideas and new trends.
I never knew this feeling until I lost my job in April 2019. Made some wrong career decision and I got stuck. Didn’t know what to do next. Income source had stopped, self-confidence had weakened. Spent hours and hours crying in the bathroom. Was finding no way out. I felt it for the first time: Anxiety—a never-changing feeling. I felt it then and I am feeling it today also. This is a series about my feelings called “Self Portrait – Anxiety Series.”
Sing along with me now. Two cats are better than one, they’re twice the fun, ask anyone, a second cat can be second-to-none. Thank you, thank you. That was my lovingly done adaptation of ‘How I Met Your Mother’s’ hit song ‘Two Beavers Are Better Than One,’ slightly changed to better fit our mutual love of gorgeous felines and beautiful floofs.
And, truly, two cats really are better than one, and we’ve got the proof. Bored Panda has collected some of the most fun, wholesome, and hilarious photos of cat duos goofing and lazing about, all to heal and soothe your souls, dear Pandas. Maybe even to convince you to get a second catto if you’ve only got one at home. Just show your partner or family this list when you want to pitch them this awesome idea wink wink nudge nudge.
It was a misty autumn morning near the Vistula River in Krakow, Poland. This day I had decided to set off for work early with the intention to photograph on the way. Strolling on the bank of the river, I suddenly spotted a group of rowers heading towards the Bernatek Footbridge. Instantly, I realized I had a split second to take a good photograph of them—the rowing boat was moving rapidly. I was thrilled; it was a quick shot of adrenaline. I rushed and pressed the shutter button—had I hesitated a moment, I would have missed this perfect opportunity…
Would it change your opinion of tattoos if you found out that your favorite movie star or actor was covered in them? We can also invert that question: would you start looking at your favorite movie star or actor differently if you discovered their bodies were inked with tattoos?
Seattle-based artist Cheyenne Randall explores these questions with his digitally-altered photos, which portray actors, musicians, and other famous figures past and present covered nearly head to toe in tattoos.
One day when out taking photos in the garden I noticed a little mouse over by the brambles standing up on his little back legs to reach the best and most juicy blackberries. The little mouse would come out daily feasting on the blackberries, so I started to also put him out some tasty peanuts and seeds as the blackberries started to run out.
