Geology is a topic that puts many to sleep, so perhaps it's fitting that retailer Land of Nod has created a bedding set featuring the different layers of the Earth. Aptly named "To the Center of Bedding," these dirty blankets come in twin and full/queen sizes, and retail for $190 and $200 respectively. Land Of Nod describes the set on their website:
"Prepare yourself for a journey unlike any other. Well, this adventure actually just involves sleeping in this exclusively designed geology bedding. The quilt features a multi-layered cross section of the earth's interior, with each layer made from a different material. The result is a unique mixture of patterns, colors and textures."
Hypnotizing Translucent Waves In 19th Century Russian Paintings Capture The Raw Power Of The Sea
by Martynas Klimas
Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky loved painting the sea. A Crimean native, he was born in Feodosia, a port town, and thus had great waters as a constant companion. This 19th century Russian Armenian painter had real knack for depicting waves. Light and translucent, they perfectly capture the essence of the real thing. Many of these paintings featured a human element, too, with ships showing the struggle between man and nature.
During his career, Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky painted more than 6000 paintings, half of which depict sea and ships. He often went to watch naval manoeuvres and even painted the siege of Sevastopol. Aivazovsky was widely recognized even outside the Russian Empire, receiving awards from France, Turkey and others.
Artist Turns Photos Of Random People Into Fun Illustrations
by Paulina Tikunova
Brazilian artist Julio Cesar created a fun series of digital illustrations based on the photos of random people. His cheeky illustrations distinguish themselves through their vibrant colors and subtle lines. It looks as if his characters are about to come to life!
The series might remind you of Hector Janse van Rensburg, who we wrote about previously, and who became famous on the internet by turning random facebook users' profile photos into illustrated sloths.

For many, their wedding is "their day," but this generous couple decided to make it about others. Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu, 24, and Esra Polat, 20, of Turkey, decided to spend the money they had received for the wedding feeding Syrian refugees instead. Working together with Turkish charity Kimse Yok Mu, they took their place behind the counter still dressed in their wedding attire and spent the day feeding 4000 people.
"We wanted to help our Syrian brothers," the newlyweds shared in a statement through KYM. "Seeing the happiness in the eyes of the Syrian refugee children is just priceless. We started our journey to happiness with making others happy and that's a great feeling."
The wedding took place in the southern Turkish city of Kilis, located on the Syrian border. According to the United Nations, Turkey has hosted more than a million Syrian refugees since the conflict began there in 2011; in total, four-million refugees have fled the war-torn country seeking shelter elsewhere.

My name is Tal Peleg.
Art has been a huge part of my life ever since I can remember myself. I love illustration, photography and makeup, and the eye-art is my way of mixing all of these passions together by using the eye as my canvas.
Makeup is an amazing form of art, and I use it in order to make my eye tell a story. I don't just paint on the eye, but try to use the shape of the eye and its natural curves as part of the illustration in a creative way.
Inspiration is all around me, and I give my own unique artistic interpetation using makeup. It can be inspired by emotions, movies, fairytales, animals, food, important social matter and more. I create all the eye-art on my own eye, and I use mostly eyeshadows, eyeliners and watercolors, and of course – super tiny brushes. It takes hours of work, and lots of patience, but I really enjoy every moment of the process!
