Nice artwork. The real plane it's based on, the Russian Kalinin K-7, wasn't nearly that big, but it was still impressive and actually flew a few times (before crashing and being canceled).



The same artist also did this cool Steampunk dirigible:

That's a massive and wild looking plane. Looks as if it could belong in an Indiana Jones movie or something.

Is it the house with all the chimps dressed as 1920's movie stars, and the giraffe in the leather S&M gear?

Either way, the fires from space look both cool, and boring.  :P

This is pretty cool.

From Kotaku:
Quote
These Golden Books Are Not For Children

Most, if not all of you, will at some stage of your life been read to from a Golden Book. They're a childhood staple. But what if there were Golden Books that, uh, weren't exactly suitable for the little ones?

They'd look like these! Josh Cooley, an artist at Pixar, has been whipping these up in his spare time for the past two years, and they're amazing. Most are pretty self-explanatory - and if I have to tell you the movie, you won't get the joke - but if you're finding yourself lost by most of them, you might want to catch up on your 70's movies. Maybe start with Apocalypse Now and The Graduate.

COOLEY! [Josh Cooley, via Super Punch]

A map of humanity.  There's quite a bit of detail, so spend some time checking it out.

An interesting story on Gizodo, about an SR-71 pilot recounting a mission over Libya.
