Red Bull has been sponsoring creative competitions for artwork made from Red Bull cans since 1997 and has exhibitions all over the world. Some of the submissions are truly amazing.

Orisinal has a whole slew of Flash games by Ferry Halim that are beautifully illustrated, though more suited for a preschool audience. Worth checking out just for the style, but also a good place to visit if you have youngsters running around your house. LINK
The snow globes created by Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz vary from inspirational, to dark and twisted. They also have other miniature scenics not placed in the snow globe format. Many are not quite suitable for children in their humor, but see for yourself. LINK

Type in a few words, pick your typeface and background color, then email your own greeting off to whomever you like.
NOTE: Unfortunately, at last check, this site was no longer available.

Eric Joisel is a Frenchman who lives and works outside of Paris. This guy is amazing. Not only does he do beautiful work, it also has a certain je ne sais quoi. He has some of the more typical animals though even these are unique but he goes so much further.
Check out his site that includes information about how it is done and a video and get a sense of scale. LINK
