Valeriya Kutsan is a Russian make-up artist who has taken the craft to a whole new dimension. Rarely do I literally have my jaw drop when perusing images on the internet. This was one of those times. Unbelievably cool and intricate and creative, these works (and their models) will forever change the way I look at the potential of painting a face. Via FastCo Design:
A good artist can make just about anything their canvas medium. That includes dirt, it seems. Artist Sarah Rosado has taken dirt and turned it into cute, clever and interesting works of art. All images courtesy of the artist.

Syrian refugees have formed an enormous tent city called Zaartari, in Jordan, with over 144,000 refugees. And unlike the tent city during Burning Man, this one is three times the size, and full of despair and hopelessness. Despite all, the tent city has services just like a real city would, from electricity and hair salons, to medical facilities and markets. Let’s all hope the Syrian civil war ends soon.

Refugees are resourceful and resilient, though eager to return to their homes.
The cost in human suffering is high.
