Pete Fecteau, artist behind the impressive 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes image of Dr. Martin Luther King entitled “Dream Big,” announced he will create 8,000+ cube mosaic. The new 8,484-cube mosaic will be titled “Gray Matters” and will portray Albert Einstein, using Fecteau’s analogous color palette. The new mosaic will measure 37’ by 7’8”.
Fecteau’s first Rubik’s Cube mosaic “Dream Big” – unveiled in 2010 – caused buzz in the art world and quickly garnered interned fame with more than 30 millions views. “Gray Matters” is set to unveil at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Mich. in late September. Following the ArtPrize the mosaic will tour the United States. “Gray Matters” is exactly twice as large as “Dream Big” and uses only five of the six colors found on Rubik’s Cube: Blue, Red, Orange, Yellow, and White.
“It’s really exciting to be able to do another big mosaic. ‘Dream Big’ was such a surreal and humbling experience I couldn’t resist trying another one. This time I’ve been working with You Can Do The Rubik’s Cube and Seven Towns [which owns the Rubik’s Cube trademark] and it’s been a lot easier to plan. It gives me the chance to focus on the art and have more fun creating ‘Gray Matters.’” said Fecteau.
Currently, Fecteau is still in the development process and is looking for funding to complete the mosaic. He has created a Kickstarter campaign – a crowd-funding website – to help fundraise the additional $30,000 that he needs to complete the mosaic. Donors to “Gray Matters” will receive rewards such as postcard sets, limited editions screen-printed posters or special drawing journals.

I am sure your mind is perfectly relaxed after the weekend and we may dive into another fresh set of creative inspirations our team put together. The ones following us know what our daily inspirations consist of … it’s not about the photos, illustrations and traditional art only … there is something for everyone. So let’s take a look what we got. In the photo section do not miss the swimming ape in Are you looking at me by Oat Vaiyaboon. There are several cool illustrations … but today I’ll pick just one, and it’s gonna be very cartoonish. Love it. Anyway, the artwork is called Digital Painting & Illustration, and Daniel Djanie is the talented author behind it. I believe we were already featuring artworks by Jenny Liz Rome … some of you may remember. If you do not remember it doesn’t matter … just check her latest artwork here at Cruzine called Bear #2. How sexy is that?! At the very end of my intro I am gonna recommend a nice poster freebie at the bottom called Black & Orange PSD Flyer Template by Flyerheroes. Enjoy!
“This photograph pretty much sums up my favorite place in LA area. When I have the time, I pack up some goodies [cameras, coffee, journals, etc.] and head to the beach to get away from the “vibrations” in the city. I am so thankful to have this place to go to, as it helps balance out living in the intense city life of LA. I go out here and am instantly recharged to come back and throw myself in to all the activity and stimulation of the city.” Read Los Angeles local Layli’s full interview/travel guide to her city here.
How can you see anything that isn’t there actually?
Take a careful look on the pictures and let’s see how many of them can you recognize!
“What on earth is this?” – You could ask.
You might define them as optical illusions or visual brain teasers (“Eye teasers”). The hidden famous icons, silhouettes make you feel that you have seen them somewhere before…. “but where exactly?”
The idea is based on an optical illusion, called “Kanizsa triangle”. That’s why we dedicated our first picture to the modification of the triangle. Its inventor was an Italian psychologist who created these “rotated pacman figures” to illustrate basic assumption of Gestalt psychology, that the human eye sees objects in their entirety before perceiving their individual parts.

Every year in Sweden on the 30th of April, Swedes celebrate Valborg.
Originally it was a celebration to ‘sing out the winter’ and rejoice to sing traditional songs of praise whilst lighting celebratory bonfires.
Nowadays, it’s become one of largest student holidays/festivals/party of the year throughout Central and Northern Europe.
As evidenced in the link below.
That was last year in Lund.
Happy Valborg World.
Even if Men in Black 3‘s story turns out to be a complete disaster, at least the makeup special effects will be quality. Photos show that makeup artist guru Rick Baker has once again worked his magic, and there are going to be more fun aliens this time around. The set photos also show that, as expected, Jemaine Clement‘s villain has some creepy peepers hiding behind his aviator sunglasses. Men in Black 3 opens in 3D on May 25th. (Photo by Stark Industries)
