As if it's some sort of consolation for them delaying the mayhem another six months, Rockstar has released a bunch of new screens from the upcoming GTA 5. Even though the images themselves don't get us all hot and bothered, the idea of being able to rampage all over those locales when the game gets released does get us kind of excited. Until then, eye candy.

Jorge Oswaldo's work is made "by removing corporate logos from their original settings, and applying them in a different context, Oswaldo re-contextualizes their original meaning with a hypermodern framework." So, basically, he takes the corporate logos that you'd be able to recognize even while heavily hungover, ... continue reading
Making guitars out of weird materials is not a new concept, but few of those weird material mashups end up look as good as these Skateboard Guitars from Buenos Aires artist Ezequiel Galasso and his company Skate Guitar. Ripped up, shredded skateboard decks painstakingly transformed from trash into musical treasure–and they sound good too! Unfortunately, we don’t know much more about them then the fact that they look and sound great, but we still want one anyway. ... continue reading
Gizmodo makes a very good point when they talk about superheroes and money. We all know Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen are rich, but what about everyone else? Is Bruce Banner collecting royalty money? Is Captain America cashing Social Security checks in his old age? How do these guys and gals make money when they’re out busting their hump all the time. What if they broke down and jumped on that sponsorship bandwagon? In his series “Sponsored Heroes” designer Roberto ...... continue reading

There isn’t much that can’t be said on Tumblr, Facebook or any other social media site in less than 10 seconds with some funny text, cats or dancing images of Kate Upton. Artist Paolo Čerić takes the animated gif art form to a whole new level with his mind-bending creations. Part Escher, part pop-culture commentary and all cool, the collection is one you have to check out. ...... continue reading
Batman. Iron Man. The Hulk. Spider-man. Captain America. Silver Surfer. Weapon X. All heroes that have had huge followings since the golden age of comics. We’re never going to get to see all of Macedonian artist Marko Manev’s rendered heroes in the same big screen action flick, but that doesn’t make his Superhero Noir Posters any less awesome. We like each one of the individually, but we kind of want all ten and hang them as a series. ... continue reading

When you set up an artist list like this (ALIIGN, David Choe, Gluekit, Melvins, French, Cody Hudson, Mishka, Josh Graham, Dust La Rock and Andrew Schoultz) for a project, the results are going to be awesome regardless of what they're doing. When it's all sponsored by Scion as part of their 2013 Art Car Program ... continue reading
Artist David Eger openly admits that “Although the concept of recreating historical images is not original, I believe I have put a new twist on the idea.” We wholeheartedly agree. Rather than simply taking a historical image, opening it in Photoshop and putting his own twist on it, Eger takes a page out of his own ... continue reading
Over a decade ago, Wes Anderson released one of the greatest films of our generation–The Royal Tenenbaums. The books and magazines that appear throughout the movie have finally been released by Criterion for us to enjoy. See how many you remember. ... continue reading
Zippos are easily the most iconic lighters in existence. Bic lighters might be more ubiquitous in the “recreational substances” crowd because they won’t burn your hands off when used with glass hardware, but Zippos are still far more iconic. This collection of 282 lighters is composed of hardware from actual soldiers during the Vietnam War. At $35,000 for the collection (roughly $125 each), they’re not exactly cheap, but how can you put a price on a historical piece of art? ...... continue reading
Any man who can find the beauty in a dude who wears skimpy cut-off jean shorts 24/7, is clearly an artistic master. Besides his Tobias Funke print, Rich Pellegrino has crafted cool portraits of other pop-culture characters we love. If you've been looking for a stylish way to display your love from The Dude or Boba ... continue reading
Odds are you’ve seen at least one of Andrew Archer’s illustrations. He’s created pieces for everything from Onitsuka Tiger’s California 78 re-release to the Vendetta Films 24 Hour Movie Marathon for clients ranging from WIRED to ESPN to Audi EU (the list is a book in and of itself). Without getting too highfalutin ... continue reading
