is a French sculpture artist whose work feels like Jules Verne as realized by Tim Burton; the sculptures all share cartoonish steampunk vibe that's really appealing. Sadly, the site is 100% Flash, so no linking to specific favorites, but at the very least the navigation remains fairly straightforward.

Two completely dissimilar yet nifty artists: The twisted ink drawings of Jon Kuta
(big enough to make desktops; Flash interface), and the fabulously lifelike driftwood and bronze sculptures of Heather Jansch
(she really likes horses. Warning: you'll have to side-scroll).

David C. Roy - Wood That Works. "All of my sculptures are spring driven escapement mechanisms. Nothing is hidden. Each part of one of my sculptures is essential to the operation of the whole. The relative motion of these interacting parts produces the interesting, some say "whimsical and dynamic" patterns of motion. I am always searching for simple ways to produce complex, yet understandable, visual, and at times auditory, patterns."

is a site offering "a new type of news media: 3D News." Their mission is "to provide a 3D portal to the latest Pop Culture events. Our sculptures provide a new visually stimulating way of remembering current and past world events." Ethically, their most recent sculptures range from the sick
, to the really sick
. Anyone wager a guess that Jeff Koons
is somehow behind this?
Bonus: they will make custom sculptures
of your friends and family. Looks like Irony's back in town, baby.

Justice Department Coverup
Attorney General John Ashcroft was fed up with having his picture taken during events in the Great Hall in front of semi-nude statues. So he has ordered massive draperies to conceal the offending figures (cost: 8,000 bucks)
