1. Experience the Planets


    EXPERIENCE THE PLANETS is a stunning collective art project that aims to “illustrate [the planets’] wonders, weaving art and science together.”

    Here are some of the great HD wallpapers they offer.​

    From the Project Page:

    The cornerstone of ETP is its process, which holds each artist responsible for understanding and representing the science behind their work. Combining research with creative exploration and fact-based critique, the ETP community strives to make every piece an artist produces the best they’ve ever done.

     

  2. Modern Mad Men


    In anticipation of the beginning of Season 6 of AMC’s Mad Men (stream an Inside Look for free now), Shutterstock turned its designers loose on marking the delta from Mad Men to Modern Mad Men.​

    From the post:

    Our designers set their sights on the main Mad Men characters with that in mind, choosing an everyday symbol from their daily lives and transforming it through a 21-century lens. While most of these folks would be doing very similar work today, the tools they use to get it done would be quite different. (Just imagine what Peggy could accomplish with a MacBook at her disposal.) Read on to see what a difference a half-century can make.

    5. This is a “I Can’t Pick” one that I am asking readers over on our Facebook page for their preference: Colour photos of circus performers from the 1940s & 50s (http://5thin.gs/qzVfPa) OR A very modern photoshoot of 1503 AD fashion (http://5thin.gs/n4lMl7). Which one is more interesting to you?
