At the latest FACTS Comic Con (Official Website) in Ghent-Belgium last month, I entered this origami contest. The brief said you were to make an origami Tie Fighter and win a lifesize Death Trooper. Or one of 5 ROGUE ONE Bluray Steel boxes. Well, I didn’t win the Trooper but I did manage to secure myself one of those DVD steel boxes. And it arrived today! Yeah! Click to enlarge.

Inspired by the work of Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz, Manu is a self-taught portrait photographer based in Barcelona.” While exploring Behance, I found his profile and the work he was doing way back in September. But Manu told me of a bigger project he was working on. So far, he’s only done with part one of Splash Wars, and there is much more to come. Click to enlarge.
