Last night a cold front rolled through Chicago, and lucky for us art consultant Amy King was on the lakefront and stopped to shoot an amazing 5-second timelapse as a low-hanging roll cloud moved ominously down the shoreline. So, what’s a roll cloud? Meteorologist Cheryl Scott explains:
What started in 2013 as a quirky attempt to immortalize famous internet cats on clothes by embroidery artist Hiroko Kubota, has now transformed into a full-fledged custom clothing line where people can request embroideries of their favorite pets on her own brand of shirts, Go!Go!5. The project began when she was making handmade clothes for her young son who asked if a cat could make an appearance on his shirt. Kubota’s shirts quickly went just as viral as the famous cats she embroidered peeking out of pockets, and soon she was taking requests. She’s since embroidered hundreds of cats and dogs for happy customers around the world. You can make your own request via Etsy.
Visual artist and animator Hayden Zezula creates superbly unusual animations that he shares on his Tumblr by the name of Zolloc. For years he’s shared unsettling images of eerie walking babies, dripping amorphous blobs, and vaguely occult-ish symbols that have been shared millions of times across his Facebook and Vine accounts. Zezula says that his intention is to merge visually pleasing animation with creepy imagery, creating loops that toe the line between interesting and uncomfortable. Mission accomplished.

Based in rural Devon, UK, artist Suzy Taylor works with an X-Acto knife and sheets of paper to cut skulls, animals, and entire family trees composed of dense arrays of leaves and flowers. Each piece begins as a complete drawing and is then cut from paper over a period of hours or days. Though many of her designs are original commissions, she also turns much of her work into prints and stationery that are sometimes available from her shop (currently on vacation) and Not On the High Street. You can follow more of her recent work on Instagram. (via Culture N Lifestyle)
