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.

If you grew up during the 1980s, many of its style tropes will have been burned indelibly into your brain. Shoulder pads, snow-washed jeans, pleated pants, and tacky, tacky poster art, exemplified by selective-colored black and white photos. If you can imagine a monochrome image of a rose, with the petals colored lipstick red, then congratulations: your mind just traveled back to 1985. Now, with Paint FX, your iPad can do the same.

Artist David Datuna created a striking portrait of Steve Jobs titled “Viewpoint of Millions.” Shown at the recent international art fair Scope Miami, it became one of the most expensive art pieces sold at the fair, fetching $210,000.
It was created from a background pattern of thousands of miniature images of author/philosopher Ayn Rand; the large format iconic portrait rests under a wall of optical lenses made from nearly 80,000 parts.
In my opinion, this statue designed by Hungarian software maker Gabor Bojar is absolutely petrifying, but there’s no doubt that the photo gallery of its construction first posted by the International Business Times is beautifully shot and captivating. We’ve got more images of this bronze Steve Jobs statue after the jump, including an amazing one of Steve Jobs getting his neck welded shut.
Now here’s a cute item for the eco-conscious among us. Designers Kyle Bean and Thomas Forsyth have created an all-wooden iPhone for the cover of Computer Arts magazine. Using a carved wood frame and lego-like blocks for the icons, the homescreen is fully customizable and tastefully done in a two-tone finish.
