Winter in Kraków by Marcin Ryczek.
Why carve your sculptures when you could delicately glue thousands of perfectly cut pieces of paper together? Beijing editor and designer Li Hongbo, inspired by tradtional Chinese paper toys and decorations, applied the same methods to create these very cool, flexible paper sculptures. [via.]

Ham & Heroin has been alive for six years and I figured it’s about time this thing got a little more gussied up. New year, new look. Let me know if you guys like it as much as I do or if you hate it and want it to die a miserable death.
“I Love You” by Woodkid [Official Music Video]
Woodkid aka Yoann Lemoine is one of my favorite artists in this world today. He is a singer/songwriter, illustrator, producer and director. If I had grown up to be any of these things, my style would’ve been exactly his.
His first album comes out March 18, 2013. Until then, check out the rest of his work here.
You know those nights
or days and flights
when in each mirror or fern
you see the reflection of your
very own destiny?
And in foliage and cowardice
I’ll never grow into this
No Lord I’ll never grow out of this
and the hardest fastest
depression like ice
and you realize, sure,
is all of me
- Wesley Carls, Into A Garden

Love this man’s work.
