Exquisite creation

Wow, that bench sure looks amazing! The details in every angle look so intricate, it seems impossible to believe that it was created using a chainsaw. The person who made this must be very fascinating to meet!

Well the genius behind this now viral bench is Igor Loskutow. He is a wood carving instructor currently based in Bad Dürrheim, Southern Germany. According to his website, chainsaw carving is a new type of art and is different from the traditional way. Chainsaw carvers use huge, heavy and coarse chainsaw to create their masterpieces, whether it be a small or large sculpture.


The dragon bench is not the first one to give him fame, however. Loskutow has had numerous awards since 2006, with the latest being a first place finish in the 2009 Fasna Carving Festival in the Netherlands.

Loskutow considers the courses he provide not only as a way to develop carving skills, but also as a great gift to anyone who is curious to try out woodcarving.

Loskutow, together with four other German artists represent Husqvarna – a famous chainsaw manufacturer in Germany, during events. Their team creates sculptures on-the-spot during these events, and according to Luskotow, they truly become the center of attention.

Disney Animator’s Comics Diary About Losing His Wife is Terribly Heartbreaking

Read the captions and try not to cry.

Losing a loved one can be a sad, traumatic experience. People deal with the grief differently and for this man, keeping a ‘doodle diary’ has been most helpful.

A former illustrator for Disney, Gary Andrews’ comics about losing his wife and living life as a single father of two is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. No wonder his work has made an impact to his numerous followers on social media.

In a BoredPanda feature, we learn that Gary began doing his comics-style journal entries back on his 54th birthday. He was happily married at the time and a father of two children.

Unfortunately, something tragic happened. His wife Joy got sick and they initially thought it was nothing but flu. It turned out, however, that it was actually sepsis and it eventually led to her passing.

Gary shared:

“From the minute Joy was admitted to hospital, specialists from every department tried to find out what was wrong. They couldn't have done more. It wasn't until the post-mortem that they narrowed it down to sepsis.”

Overwhelmed by his sadness, Gary later turned to his notebook and began pouring his emotions out on paper – by making artworks.

He recalled:

“I was crying so hard it was difficult to focus on the page. I was drawing through tears.

“Joy had been my soulmate for 19 years. She was beautiful, kind, generous and funny. We did everything together. When I lost her, I felt half of me had gone.”

Now his touching comics have captured the hearts of many on the internet.
