Realistic House Plant Cupcake by Alana Jones-Mann

Artist on Tumblr | Facebook

Inspired by a gardening project, Brooklyn-based baker Alana Jones-Mann decided to make cupcakes that look like common miniature cacti. Using frosting, green food coloring and of course, baking talent, Alana successfully made a bunch of cacti cupcake cuteness and even planted them on soil (crushed graham crackers). These realistic cacti cupcake are made with such impressive details that some of them even appear sharp to the touch. If you like those edible cacti and want to make your own, head on over to Alana Jones-Mann’s blog and find the step-by-step tutorial.

Alan John Herbert: “The Body”

Alan John Herbert‘s The Body has only one flaw, it is too brief. It is such a beautiful series–brilliant even. The two mediums, illustration and photography, partake in a wonderful waltz, gliding across your psyche without missing a beat.

Yusuke Sakai: “Skin’

Japanese photographer Yusuke Sakai, born in Osaka in 1984, has decided to take a close-up, the skin of different animals across the planet. Gathered under the heading “Skins” snapshots lead to rather surprising visual and aesthetic experiences. Between feathers, leather and fur, each epidermis leads to a balanced composition, punctuated by the play of colors, patterns and textures. In spring a symbolic hymn to diversity, the choice of frames, each evoke an object, sensation or even a familiar space. A conceptual sampling so that art and biology intersect.
