Not to be confused with the popular Pool Cleaner device, I Am Lil’ Shark finds its way into this week’s Shark Attack featurette for being a hyper-realist Shark-Shaped Jigsaw Puzzle! It’s totally Jawsome!
Madd Capp Puzzles, makers of I Am Lil’ Shark, design all of their colorful animal puzzles in the shape of the actual animal, so you can see that they are way more fun and educational to put together than your standard square puzzles, which must now be said to suck by comparison.

Whoa! Graphic Designer Scott Church of 23rd Day paper goods company has created what is perhaps the ultimate design for a surprise Birthday card: a Land Shark. Because no one expects a Shark Attack in the Garden!
Here is Scott’s original artwork, from which the card design was adapted. I think it’s just fantastic.

You might remember this happy Grinning Shark cartoon from my rad coverage of 2018’s outrageously fun Five Points Festival. Or maybe not. Holding a side of Crispy Bacon and ready to chomp, this Shark is the work of the artist known only as Sharpy, who created it for the Red Envelope Show, which was up at Flushing Town Hall from January 5th through the 27th. And why the Bacon, you may ask? Well, to celebrate the Year of The Pig, of course!
Hey, remember this post? Well, it looks like this wheat paste street art of a Shark swimming through the opening of a lowercase “b” on a child’s Alphabet Block is also the work of artist/activist Appleton.
I spotted this piece near the stairs leading to the F and M Train platform at 16th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan. If you look at the lower right hand corner of the above photo, you will see the remnants of an insulin vialnd a Campbell’s soup can (which says Cream of Insulin Soup) that are by this same artist.
Each year on New Year’s Eve day, I round up all of my not-yet-redeemed free product manufacturer coupons that are expiring at midnight on December 31st and head to Whole Foods and other neighborhood Supermarkets to load up on free stuff! Woo! This year’s haul includes ice cream, milk, frozen vegetable soufflés, and cottage cheese. Food just tastes better when it is free.
Even better, imagine how excited I was to notice this large Plush Shark Toy perched atop the illuminated sign on checkout register Number 9!
For Want of a Nail is an installation by the MTA Arts for Transit Design Team and the Museum of Natural History consisting of bronze, granite, ceramic and glass mosaic murals. The project represents a study of the evolution of life starting from the big bang to the present day. The southern stairway to the lower level, downtown C Train features a multi-wall ceramic tiel mosaic mural of vibrant ocean life forms.
