Amidst the current Finnish startup buzz, we’ve seen tons of fresh, quick and ingenious companies sprout about from the ruins of Finland’s Nokia-lead ICT imperium. Not all of them, however, make their money in a way that the society deems as legal.

The Finnish cryptomarket Valhalla has quickly risen to become one of the darknet’s leading online shopping places for drugs and other illegal products. Given the current growth pace, Valhalla may make its first million in profits this year. This is not bad, especially as Valhalla is not likely to file their tax report like the rest of us.

Jakub Rozalski, 1920+

Wow! We guarantee these pioneering landscape paintings will blow your mind

Jakub Rozalski 2Enjoy history? Get a kick out of science fiction? If so, then you’ll love the digital artwork by Jakub Rozalski, a concept artist and illustrator based in Hamburg, Germany. He incorporates fantasy and sci-fi elements such as mechs, werewolves, and even Predator into historic and picturesque landscapes, resulting in artwork that’s both awe-inspiring and entertaining.

Jakub’s latest project 1920+ features giant, menacing mechs (and occasionally Wojtek, Polish bear/soldier of WWII) lurking around early 20th century Polish villages – a concept that may sound odd to some. But the series has just the right balance of weirdness, anachronism, and talent to really pull it off. And what good is concept art if it’s not a little weird? Check out a few of Jakub’s stunning artworks from the 1920+ project below and see for yourself!
