If you were anything like me as a kid, you loved stickers. Maybe you had a sticker book where you would place them all carefully, as the precious items they are to children. Now, what would you do if you had unlimited stickers at your disposal? You heard me. Unlimited. Stickers. That was the idea behind Yayoi Kusama's exhibit at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane. After painting a large, domestic space pure white, she armed the museum's little ones with stickers and let them have at it. The results are incredible, and make me wish I were a kid again.

I love looking through photographer's wedding portfolios, but no matter how unique or quirky the couple, you can pretty much guarantee that each album will contain just a few of the same staple shots (the shoes, always the shoes). I think that's why I got such a kick out of Barbie and Ken's wedding album. It's well shot, but also has a sense of humor about industry standards. Click here to poke through all of the shots taken on this special day for B&K. ••••
I'm a sucker for a well-designed ceramic piece, and this is one clever and playful idea—these bowls fill up with your morning cereal to reveal a hidden animal in their design. Kudos to Geraldine de Beco for a stellar idea.••••
I will never cease to amazed away by trompe l'oeil sidewalk chalk, or Baroque ceilings, which trick you into seeing depth where there is none. But here is a twist I like— painter/photographer Alexa Meade's subjects live and breathe, but you might not realize this at first blush. After some impressive brush work, her models easily pass for two-dimensional in a photograph. You might think there is some Photoshop involved in creating these images, but think again!
