Giant Hand Monument To Steve Jobs Unveiled In Ukraine [Gallery]

Since his death in 2011, countless pieces of art have been created in memory of Steve Jobs and his work at Apple, but this is one of the neatest statues we’ve seen that has been dedicated to the Apple co-founder.

Crafted by Ukranian artist, Cryil Maksimenko, the monument was installed in Odessa Ukraine on the one year anniversary of Steve Jobs’s death. It’s comprised of numerous gears, screws, bearings and other pieces from bicycles, motorcycles and cars, which looks fascinating when you look at it up close.

iPhone Camera App Only Lets You Take One Photo. Ever.

Would you buy an iPhone photography app that only let you take one photo? Not one per day, or one per week, but one photo ever. No? Neither would I. But I would download a free app just to see what was going on.

That app is real, and it’s called One Memento.

Check Out This Amazing Technicolor Chalk Portrait Of Steve Jobs From Last Weekend’s Palo Alto Arts Festival

Check Out This Amazing Technicolor Chalk Portrait Of Steve Jobs From Last Weekend’s Palo Alto Arts Festival

This weekend saw Palo Alto, California once again hosting its annual Festival of the Arts. The festival is known, amongst other things, for its yearly Italian Street Painting Expo, in which over sixty street artists take to the pavement to make elaborate paintings in chalk.

This year, to honor Palo Alto’s most famous adopted son, street artist Lawrence Viariseo did this amazing technicolor Steve Jobs portrait. Steve looks, perhaps, a little bit leonine in the painting, but that just makes it better: Apple’s founder always did have a thing for lions.

Check out the Vlariseo drawing the portrait below, courtesy of Flickr user Tim Roper. It’s a thing of beauty.

Martha Stewart CraftStudio: Crafts Without Mess! [Daily Freebie]

Martha Stewart CraftStudio: Crafts Without Mess! [Daily Freebie]

However dramatic the stories about her extra-curricular activities and personality are, Martha Stewart remains the undisputed queen of crafts.

But the last time I did anything crafty was back in high school when I ditched three periods and headed for the beach — so I wasn’t horribly enthusiastic when Martha Stewart CraftStudio popped up on our radar. Color me shocked though, because it’s pretty darn awesome — especially for kids, and people who actually know what they’re doing.

Procreate Painting App Gets Stunning Update For New iPad

Procreate piles on the new features, and yet remains lag-free and easy to use

Procreate, the already excellent iPad drawing app, has been updated to play nice with the iPad 3’s Retina Display. But to dwell on that would be to ignore the massive changes that have gone into this version. Make no mistake: This might be labelled v1.6, but it is much more like a v2.0.

iPad Artist’s Awesome Mashup Paintings Combine The Shining & Toy Story

Kyle Lambert is one of the best iPad artists on the web. He also happens to be a big fan of Pixar’s animation team, so when he started following Lee Unkrich – the director of Toy Story 3 – he noticed how passionate Lee is about Stanley Kubrick and his film The Shining. Combining Toy Story 3, with Lee’s obsession for The Shining and Lambert’s iPad drawing talent resulted in one of the more interesting artistic mashups we’ve seen in a while – Toy Shining.

We could tell you more, but we’ll just let you oogle at Kyle’s awesome iPad drawings of Woody occupying Jack Torrance’s spot in Kubrick’s cinematography masterpiece, but remember, everything was created just using an iPad.
