We made it. It’s Friday!

And I have some linkages for you.

Cage Of Thrones

Cage Of Thrones

I am late to the game on this one. Redditor CarlosDanger100 created a gallery of every Game of Thrones character as portrayed by Nicholas Cage back in 2015.

You’re welcome (?)

Julien Tabet

Julien Tabet

Mr. Tabet creates whimsical, surreal portraits of animals.

Really clever work here. He sells prints of his works on Etsy.

Gift Wrap My Face

Gift Wrap My Face

You take a carefully prepared photo of your face, upload it to the site, choose the patterns you like, and order a few rolls of your now custom wrapping paper.

Note: it is strongly recommended that you use the Firefox browser for this. I ran into numerous issues with Chrome. (Weirdly.)

Just in time for Xmas!

Argent Ball

Argent Ball

A super challenging and addictive game. You focus the tip of a laser / line on a small approaching red ball that will avoid it. Eliminate the red ball. Repeat.

It’s a simple, pretty intense little game.

Ta daaaaa! Friday Links: Sorted!

I hope your Friday is great, and your weekend is relaxing and calm. (And not too cold.)

See you next week everybody.

Happy Friday!

And welcome to today’s Friday Links, which is mostly fine-art-related.

Han Hsu-Tung: Wood Works

Han Hsu-Tung: Wood Works

This artist creates breathtaking sculptures that look like they are dissolving into pixels / bricks.

It’s a very striking effect. Beautiful.

Simon Schubert: Licht (Light)

Simon Schubert: Licht (Light)

Artworks made completely of very precise creasing of a piece of paper.

The effect is quite stunning.

Schubert is based out of Cologne, Germany.

Hero Forge Custom Miniatures

Hero Forge Custom Miniatures

You design the character – right in your web browser – and this company 3D prints your creation as a tabletop model and ships it to you.

It’s focused on Dungeons and Dragons / fantasy table-top game fans, but you can make them just to make them. I love this idea.

Pixel Plucking

Pixel Plucking

A frantic little game.

In a limited time you have to move the big pixel to roll over smaller ones. Each time you do, more appear. Higher score = good.

I felt a little panicked as it went on but it’s definitely addictive.

And that is that. Finished. Kaput. Over.

Thanks for playing along at home, Friday Links-ers!

See you in a week.
