Alex Yanes - 'Better Than Yesterday' [2013] collection

Although this is an old(ish) body of work by Miami based artist Alex Yanes, it's still definitely worth a share here on SOB. Lots of these pieces are still available to purchase from Thinkspace Gallery, if they tickle your fancy that is?

'Nyth' - new custom Tequila by MAp-MAp aka Matthew Plater

BLODDY NORAH, check out this new custom by UK artist MAp-MAp!! I seriously need this dude in my life! Shame it was made for a private collector ...lucky git.

"We all have those crazy years, but then birds nest on your head and you have to calm down a little...UNLESS YOU ARE NYTH!!! Since those birds started roosting away on Nyth's bonce, life has been crazy. He's pulling up trees to launch into the horizon, throwing boulder's through mountains, even burrowing into fox dens on the other side of the earth. All this stuff used to happen before the birds arrived, it's just now the top of Nyth's head goes *cheep cheep* as he does it."

'5 Rules' - an animated short about surviving art school

Love the style of illustration on this. By Andy Baker and Thomas Slater.

Matt Ferguson for the upcoming 'INFLUENCES' show at Bottleneck

 Yup, Matt Ferguson has surely stepped up his game for his upcoming 'INFLUENCES' show at Bottleneck gallery. I'd hang the sh*t outta that Jurassic Park piece! The show opens tomorrow, 28th Feb.

Paper toys from the team at MOMOT

I can't tell you too much about the Korean brand that is MOMOT, mainly because of the whole 'language barrier' problem. But hey, if you're curious to know more then why not watch the video below to see the entire making-of process to realise Captain America in 3D paper toy form.

Mick Minogue's Figure #2 'The Hound' for GoT show @ Ltd. Gallery

Peeps who are into their indie toys should think about picking up this rather striking 208-page book to add to their collection and help fuel their obsession. It's available now from places like Amazon for $22.

Sesame Street Fighter

Looks like it's mash up season tonight, first Batman vs Terminator, now we've got the likes of Ernie as Ken Vs Cookie Monster as E. Honda! This online game can be player HERE, (heads up - you have to type the letters that appear on the screen to perform moves. Took me ages to work that one out!).

Illustration by Mike Giant for 'Modern Hieroglyphics' show at FFDG

I basically wish my pasty skin was covered in all of this Mike Giant wizardry. If you don't know who this illustrator is, well... he's a boss! He has proved this to be true by selling out every piece from his exhibition at FFDG. Hit the jump for loads more of these (and I do mean loads more!)

Mike writes: I started to look at modern tattoo designs as well as corporate and band logos as "modern hieroglyphics". I thought a lot about how the symbols of our time would be objectively translated by future generations. And instead of trying to explain it, I made drawings to codify the symbolic language of our time for future observers to translate for themselves.

Batman vs Terminator animation

Holy MF shit bags! This fan made animation just blew my mind! Major kudos to it's creator Mitchell Hammond, who it seems put a ridiculous amount of time and effort into making this, well done Mr. Hammond. Also shout out to Noir Deco who did the music, got a great 80s Carpenter vibe - love it!

Big wigs at DC take note, this should have lots of money thrown at it for a feature length animation!!
