by Zac Freeman - “My work focuses primarily on portraits created by assembling found objects, disposable goods, and the leftover trash of things we consume in our society. I glue the bits of junk to a wooden substrate, a canvas, which forms the image of a portrait. The result is a stunningly realistic portrait at a distance and an interesting array of objects up close."
A two-headed albino Honduran Milk Snake is shown in Ridge Manor, Florida. Snake of this species are normally orange and black. Daniel Parker, a University of Central Florida biologist, says two-headed snakes have been documented to live as long as 20 years in captivity. But with two brains giving commands to a single body, Parker says the snake would have a difficult time surviving in the wild.
After graduating from Brighton University, 26 year old London-based artist Marcel George specializes in playful, tropical-like watercolor illustrations. The abstract quality of his portraits and still lifes is undeniably uplifting.

Previous Pinner: Lightning Strike. First, researchers at the University of Florida in Gainesville captured this powerful photograph at right by firing a grounded wire into a cloud during a thunderstorm. You can see that the charge followed the wire straight down into the base tower, with other channels of electricity forming to its right.
