For those who think that few good things, if any, came out of the pandemic, let me remind you how we all became at least a little bit more mindful and self-reflective. After all, many people developed new hobbies (or at least tried them!) like knitting or baking, while others took on projects they never had time for, like renovating an old garage in their backyard.
And those who were especially dedicated have turned up with some seriously impressive results. Thanks to the corner of Reddit known as “Something I Made,” we have an amazing collection of DIY projects to get you inspired.
The subreddit r/INEEEEDIT has a pretty bold introduction. Its moderators call this online community the home to the coolest products on the internet. But once you start scrolling through its content, you realize it’s kinda accurate, too.
From cute and simple (a mop that looks like a dog) to intricate and rare (a 16th-century ring that turns into an astronomical sphere), the sub has a little bit of everything. And whether you’d actually use these items or not doesn’t even matter. You’d just love to have them.
For most people, 3D printing can seem tricky and hardly understandable. However, throughout time, it has become more common to use it in everyday life. Having this in mind, enthusiasts of 3D printing created a subreddit called 3Dprintingwhere “makers of all skill levels and walks of life can learn about and discuss 3D printing.” The group with 817k members share their own creations done with the help of this technology. So here are the most elaborate works done by people who are mastering the 3D printing process.
What do we know so far about 3D printing? Built In, a community for tech startups and businesses, defines it as a technology that “uses computer-aided design (CAD) to create three-dimensional objects through a layering method. Sometimes referred to as additive manufacturing, 3D printing involves layering materials, like plastics, composites or bio-materials to create objects that range in shape, size, rigidity, and color.”
One of the most prominent features of architecture is the aesthetics of a building. An architect has to keep various things in consideration before creating a building, including the shapes, sizes, alignments, and patterns as well as the cultures and contexts in which they are being made.
Some architects have mastered the skill of creating magnificent establishments through sheer talent and hard work. We have collected 30 finest examples constructed by the best architects all around the world. Scroll below to dive into the beauty of these artistic structures.
My name is Pippa Dyrlaga and I am a paper cutting artist based in Yorkshire, England.
I have recently been creating flowers. I hand draw and hand cut each piece from paper which can take hours to complete. I began cutting the flowers in winter, creating a permanent garden.
Last year, I began looking into more sustainable papers for my work, which led me to the washi papers of Awagami Factory in Japan. These can range from 36-90gsm and makes the final pieces incredibly delicate. Each piece took between 10–40 hours to complete. Click here to see my previous article.
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

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.
