Exploding food
Food taking bullets in slow motion; beautifully destructive. Seven cans looks great, and it's interesting to compare 9mm damage compared to the full 44. (NOTE: Quicktime)

Omie
Russian Serge Maksimov illustrates (real ink, not digital!) in his own distinctive style. And huzzah, an illustrator's site not done in Flash!

Quest for the Crown
With the exception of SSCrabble, probably the best game on the Internet. (NOTE: Flash)

Feric
The deconstructed mechanics-meets-join-the-dots illustrations on this site are complex yet cute. (NOTE: Flash)

Words before looks
Gerry McGovern writes an interesting article on why web content is fundamentally different to traditional advertising.

Celestial artistry
A nicely understated site, but the content is the gem here. Detailed and beautiful celestial artworks from Greg Martin.

Robot in disguise
A Mazda that transforms into an Autobot. Do Toyotas transform into Decepticons? (NOTE: Flash)

FWA 2003 winners
Lots and lots of Flash at Favourite Website Awards. What's surprising is the choice for official winner of the year, a vote for functionality/usability over vacuous style. (WARNING: Flash)

Uncontrol
More cool Flash action scripting. I'm beginning to think of them as art installations. (WARNING: Flash)

Pirelli 2004
Some weird photographic imagery from the 2004 Pirelli calendar.

Poetry commentary
"Actual Comments Overheard In A Poetry Workshop By A Fiction Student In An MFA Program That He, In Order To Fulfill All Degree Requirements, Is Forced to Take". Delicious.

Pixelbreaker
Always a sucker for Flash action scripting, I particularly like the Bandai shading example here (try and find it without a link, because it's Flash). (WARNING: Flash)

Just Photoshop
Based on a photo, but done entirely in Photoshop.

Acid art
In a 1950's US Government experiment, an artist makes nine sketches whilst under the progressive influence of LSD. Funny tripped-out side comments.

Kozyndan
Kozy 'n Dan make some great anime-influenced slightly-surreal illustrations using a range of media.
