Illustrator and amateur naturalist Kelsey Oseid is focused on detailing the natural world, illustrating the animal kingdom’s many classes and orders on posters created with watercolor and gouache. The posters highlight more known orders such as Carnivora and Rodentia, while also showcasing the diversity of animals in lesser known orders like the Chondrichthyes and Artiodactyla. Oseid numerically labels the more common names of each animal in the footer of her works, pointing out where one can find the capybara, naked mole rat, and hammerhead shark.

Netizens were left awestruck after a batch of stunning photos was released on the web, showcasing a fox’s close bond with a young photographer named Iza Łysoń in Krakow, Poland. The photos of 20-year-old Łysoń and the curious fox named Freya were taken in a forest. Instead of fleeing from the camera, Freya had no problems posing in front of the lens. Freya was found by owner Roxanne in 2015.
A Connecticut woman was in her kitchen baking brownies when she heard a thump against her screen door — and turned around to find a very unexpected visitor trying to get in. A young bear was standing on her porch, peering through the glass, hoping to be invited inside. The bear probably smelled the brownies being prepared and decided to see if the woman might be willing to share some with him.

Jakarta-based designer and retoucher Aditya Aryanto posed the question: what would the blocky digital creatures in Minecraft look like if they actually walked the Earth? The result is a totally absurd series of retouched photographs titled Minecraft in Real Life.

Argentina-based toy designer Mat Random has designed a new geometric wood figure as a follow-up to his previous piece The Feline, another posable toy that he has named The Simian. Due to similarly placed joints for the animals’ legs and head, parts can be swapped between the two breeds to create an entirely new hybridized creature. Each low poly work can also be posed on two or four legs by maneuvering the object’s nine components, adding a puzzle-like quality to the wooden toys. You can see more of Random’s designs on his website and Behance.
