Childhood drawings recreated

A strange looking fly turned into a three dimensional digital painting. Some people will say that every child’s drawing is a masterpiece, but one artist has revisited some of his earliest illustrations to create a collection of surreal paintings. After discovering a pile of his old childhood doodles.

Dutch-based artist, Telmo Pieper, 25, decided to digitally recreate the sketches into hyper realistic, three-dimensional works of art. Whether its a beaming bear or a curious looking car, the series entitled Kiddie Art gives an amusing and fascinating glimpse into the wild imagination of a 4-year-old boy.

Luckily, its fair to say that Telmos art skills have now far surpassed his former efforts and after tracing the lines of each image into Photoshop, he then set about researching an accurate color palette that would make the illustrations seem as life like as possible. (Caters News)

White flags appear atop Brooklyn Bridge

Someone has replaced two American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge with mysterious white flags. The white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered Tuesday from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan.

One of the flags, viewed via video, appeared to have faint traces of stars and stripes on it. Police say it isn’t clear what time they were placed there — or by whom. Several officers scaled the bridge and were seen lowering the flag on the Manhattan side around 11 a.m. as traffic inched along the bridge.

The bridge is one of the most heavily secured landmarks in the city, constantly monitored by surveillance cameras. The city’s Department of Transportation is referring all queries to the New York Police Department. (AP)
