Jigsaw puzzle companies tend to use the same cut patterns for multiple puzzles. This makes the pieces interchangeable, and I sometimes find that I can combine portions from two or more puzzles to make a surreal picture that the publisher never imagined. I take great pleasure in "discovering" such bizarre images lying latent, sometimes for decades, within the pieces of ordinary mass-produced puzzles.

The Japanese Masayoshi Matsumoto produces a very different and creative art. He creates amazing animals balloons, and does not use anything but balloons to it - even tapes or markers.

Thanks to its beautiful work, he is known as a true "master" of balloon sculptures, managing to do from the simplest animals to those requiring more skill, like butterflies, fish and dinosaurs.

The result is simply perfect!

In 2014, "feltist" Lucy Sparrow opened the doors to the Cornershop, a playful pop-up "store" in London. Though seemingly stocked with familiar groceries, the Cornership was not your typical supermarket; everything, from the potato chips to the pricing gun, was made of soft and squishy felt. While the Cornershop has long since closed, Sparrow Mart, a similar site, has made its way to sunny southern California.

All statues are a little unsettling to begin with, with the way their cold, soulless eyes reflect your inner desolation. Or maybe that's just me. But these statues of the presidents are some of the strangest I've ever come across.

It's common to see smiley faces or "wash me" scrawled on a dirty car window. You wouldn't expect to see a gorgeous painting. But that's what this artist likes to do. Watch him create incredible artwork using nothing more than dust.

Pilar Abel, a tarot card reader and fortune teller from Girona, a city close to Figueres in north-east Spain where both she and the artist were born, has been trying for 10 years to prove that she is his only child and, therefore, under Spanish law, heir to a quarter of his fortune. She has said the physical resemblance is so close "the only thing I'm missing is a moustache".
