It seems that everything has been done in the art world and it is hard to come up with something completely different and unique. That is why many artists decide to combine different types of arts so the possibilities of creating something are endless. By doing that, the artists can achieve some incredible results and bring joy to art admirers.
An artist who knows really well how to create beautiful images by uniting painting and fashion is matchwithart. It is an Instagram account that is dedicated to finding the perfect piece to wear in front of a painting, sculpture or art installation and the way they are matched is really satisfying.
Anyone who has ever tried to renovate their backyard knows that the whole process takes a lot of effort, money, and most importantly – time. Thankfully, tons of spare time is what a lot of us got when the coronavirus quarantine was announced, and some homeowners used it to give their backyards some much-needed TLC.
We’ve all got that one person in our lives who is a total dad You know what I mean—they keep making puns and dad jokes and doing whatever they can to brighten everyone’s day in their own unique way. Father of two Kenny Deuss, from Antwerp in Belgium, is a total dadin the best possible way and I for one relate to him quite a bit (I make everyone groan with my dad jokes and I used to live in Belgium).
Whenever Kenny used to look after his firstborn and his girlfriend would be out, she’d ask him if little Alix was doing all right. That’s when humor-loving Kenny had a brilliant idea. He began photoshopping replies to the love of his life’s queries in the form of pictures. In them, he and the toddler would be in various dangerous, adventurous, and comic situations.
Since the very first photoshop, Kenny has amassed a following of over 157k fans on Instagram who eagerly await his latest photo-edited masterpiece. What’s more, the dad’s also started photoshopping pictures with his second child, Aster, who was born just this year, in 2021, as well.
Check out some of Kenny’s best new images below, upvote your faves, and when you’re done, have a look at our previous feature of his work right over here.
I had an absolutely lovely chat with Kenny about the process behind taking and editing each image, where he draws his inspiration from, how the last half-year has been amazing for him and his family, and what those of you Pandas who want to follow in the Photoshop wizard’s footsteps ought to do.
“Most pictures take a lot of time to make. To make the pictures as realistic as possible, I have to make sure the situation is as realistic as possible. This means we have to go to the location of the picture and also use the objects I need for the idea to work. Sometimes, I can add an artificial background or object, but this will make the result look a bit fake,” Kenny told Bored Panda. You’ll find my full interview with him below.
According to Kenny, the easiest photos to edit are the ones that he can make at home. “But even this is a challenge because my daughters are a bit too young to understand the concept. They are always in a playful mood so they sometimes don’t want to cooperate,” he told Bored Panda. “But when all photos are made, another challenge lies ahead. Editing the photos can take some time as well. When the photos work out how I intended it can be a easy job, but this is not always the case so I have to be creative to make the idea work.”
Kenny reavealed that he gets his inspiration from daily life. “At this point, I don’t have the feeling I’m running out of ideas. I have a lot of new ideas, so we can keep this going for a while,” he said that he’s motivated to keep going!#4
Even though the Covid-19 pandemic hasn’t gone anywhere, the last half-year has been “amazing” for Kenny and his family. “The past half-year has been amazing. We got so many positive messages from people who appreciate what we do and this gives me a lot of motivation. At the same time, we got to welcome our second daughter, Aster, who was born 4 months ago. So it’s a blessing we can do this while welcoming a new member to the family,” Kenny shared his joy with Bored Panda.
“Since my first images went viral, I also began making additional content for my followers on Instagram. I regularly make a fun little game to interact with our followers, and I make sure people can follow our daily adventures as well. It has become an amazing new journey and I really love this interaction with my followers,” the Photoshop wizard said that he enjoys connecting with his followers.#7
Dad Is Afraid Of Heights, So I Helped Him Out With Some Chores Today
“I want to thank everyone for the positive comments. It’s such an honor to see how people can start their day with a positive note with just an image or a positive message. There can never be too much positivity in this world!” he said, adding that he uploads a new picture on his Instagram every single Tuesday. “There are a lot of good ones yet to be published!”
Kenny also gave some advice for any of you readers who might want to be as good at Photoshop as he is. “There are a lot of tools to make funny images. Photoshop for instance is my favorite and I would definitely recommend giving it a try. There are a lot of tutorials on YouTube to help you out, so be creative! Everything is possible!”#10
Dad Is A Little Scared Of This Virus So We Ordered A Couple Of Vaccines Online
In an earlier interview with my colleague, Kenny spoke about how he and his girlfriend both have a really great sense of humor. She totally gets his jokes and embraces the dangerously funny photos.
“My girlfriend had to look twice when she received the first photo [to understand what was really going on], but it didn’t take long before she and her colleagues started looking forward to new pictures,” Kenny told Bored Panda.
“That being said, she always makes sure that the pictures were safely made. She’s always happy with the result.”#13

Taking and editing these photos has helped deepen the bond between the dad and his firstborn daughter. “Alix is an easy going, happy child. She is always smiling with a funny character, trying to make us laugh mixed with a hint of stubbornness,” he said.
Kenny is a jack of all trades. When he’s not busy showing off his Photoshop wizarding skills, he’s either working at Kavka, a concert hall, or making music with The Compleat Angler, an electronic post-rock band.
Do you know the stereotype that some dads know a bit about everything? In Kenny’s case, that’s completely true! And it just goes to show that finding time for your hobbies is possible even with a growing family.#16

Have you ever wanted to get a portrait with your pet? If the answer is yes, this is the perfect article to get some inspirational ideas for the photoshoot. Danielle Spires is a photographer who thinks out of the box and always comes up with amazing ideas of how to capture owners and their pets.
Her photographs are whimsical and magical. Danielle is probably inspired by the old-school photographs that have by now become a meme. Lots of the photos are quite humorous and silly, some very dramatic. Some will probably make you a little confused, like the one with the burglar mask, for example. However, they are all for good fun and are made to lift people’s spirits up and so that the owners will have a unique memory of their pet.
Fascinated by music, movies and sitcoms, I’m passionate about social media and can’t live without the internet, especially for all the cute dog and cat pictures out there. I wish the day had about 40 hours to be able to do everything I want. Read more »
Slogans and logos are a tool to make the brand more memorable. But sometimes (or very often, as some think) they don’t actually represent the real image of the brand; consumers often see the side that the brand wants them to see.
So the users of Design Crowd, a platform for photo editors, took the challenge of remaking the logos and slogans so that they would be a little closer to reality. And hence they remade the names, slogans and logos in a satirical manner. While some of them are dead on, and some a little bit off the mark, they show an alternative, more honest side of marketing which we wouldn’t normally see.
Not every architect is destined to be the next Gaudi or Gehry – but that doesn’t mean they aren’t good at what they do. However, there are certain architects whose works really push the boundaries of what we call terrible architecture, to the point where they should stop and ask themselves whether architecture is their true calling. And there’s one Twitter account that aims to collect all of the worst examples of architecture out there.
The Twitter account in question is called Cursed Architecture, and it only shares the best (or should I say worst?) examples of terrible and confusing architecture that people ever came across. Check it out in the gallery below!
There have been numerous architectural marvels constructed throughout history and, sadly, not all of them stood the test of time. And even though it’s no longer possible to visit them in person, there’s still a place on the internet where you can still see some of them captured on film – the Lost Architecturesubreddit.
The users of this subreddit are sharing pictures of unique and interesting buildings that have been lost to time, and they’re both fascinating and heartbreaking to see. From historical monuments to whole towns – check out the long-lost pieces of architecture shared by the users of this online community in the gallery below!
If you’re not really familiar with the real estate market in the US, Zillow is one of the biggest online marketplaces out there with hundreds, if not thousands, of homes being listed up for sale every day.

The creators of the BizarreZillowInstagram account scour the platform for the weirdest real estate listings out there so you don’t have to sift through all of them yourself – and the results are both hilarious and mind-boggling. Check out a collection of the most bizarre real estate listings that will make you wonder what on Earth were the architects and interior designers thinking in the gallery below!

Collage has strengths that a simple photo doesn’t have. A simple photo can’t combine and connect visual meanings between different contexts as well as collage. Collages also open up an extra dimension of art by mixing two different images and “forcing” them to interact and create new meaning. In today’s post, the Turkish artist Semih, going by the name of selftasy on Instagram, showcases the versatility of the collage technique in his own way.
Here’s what he had to say to Bored Panda: “Hello, I am Semih from Turkey. I am an architect, also studying urban planning Ph.D currently. Far from academic, or professional activities, in my free zone, I’m making some digital collages. I’m very interested in ‘semiotic’ and ‘assemblage’ approaches, I think they are the foundations of my art motivations.
Our loyal readers know that if they hear the word “Zillow” it’s not gonna be a post about architectural masterpieces where the designs are award winning and where every little corner has its purpose.
Quite the contrary, we will dive into the zillionaire-approved houses of sheer insanity that show what happens when common sense and too many dollars in your bank account go on a date.
Thanks to the new and growing Instagram account “BizarreZillow” that has collected some of the most “seriously?!”-inducing Zillow listings, we now gotta see what cursed means when we talk real estate. So hold tight, things are about to get zillowy.
