If these were real places, we'd patronize ... continue reading
We're not talking about the track listings, these pieces from Flickr user Harvezt are representations of what classic album covers would like like from behind. The artwork matches the actual album covers almost perfectly.

Have you ever wondered what Steve McQueen would look like with neck tattoos? How about McConaughey with eye tattoos? What about a sleeved Obama? Honestly, we hadn't either, but clearly someone did or else the Shopped Tattoos Tumblr wouldn't exist. We're glad it does, though, because these are awesome.
Double exposure photography isn't new, but we all just remembered how cool it looks thanks to the True Detective opening sequence. Artist Hiki Komori (a reference to the Japanese "Hikikomori" that are recluses who seek isolation and confinement) takes the practice of double exposing a photograph to a level that even ... continue reading
While we were busy building cubes on wheels and passing them off as cars, Malete Dorowski was busy creating stuff far cooler. His latest is this Porsche collection which features, among other things, a really sweet 911 Carrera RSR Turbo 2.1. Check out some of the shots and get inspired to up your LEGO game.
The images that have come out of Ukraine over the last couple of months have looked like a dystopian battlefield. But among the smoke and ash, were weapons that were far cruder than modern artillery. Photographer Tom Jamieson snapped some shots of these homemade weapons and shared them with Wired. Here are a few of ... continue reading

Not too long ago, we got a bit of an art boner for William Fisk's photorealistic paintings of vintage gadgets. [In case you missed it, check them out here.] He paints motorcycles, too. They're just as good, if not better, than the gadget paintings, if only because of the subject matter. Check out a few of them here, ... continue reading
Artist Scott Listfield has a passion for painting. He paints astronauts and, sometimes, dinosaurs, in landscapes of pop culture icons and familiar settings. We should have been able to figure all of this out from the name of his site, Astronaut Dinosaur [check out the site to buy prints, too], but until you see an ... continue reading

If the title of this post didn't immediately give away the fact that these images were paintings, we all would have thought they were photographs. Yes, Canadian artist William Fisk is just that good.

Even without the hot, tattooed blonde in lingerie, the photo shoot for the new Contender Series from State Bicycle Co. contained porn... bike porn. But then there's also the hot, tattooed blonde in lingerie (Alysha Nett, if you were wondering) and, well, you get the idea. They teamed up with Van Styles and Jeff Olsen for ... continue reading
Prairie Artisan Ales crafts some really, really good beers. If you haven’t had the pleasure, get your hands on some Bomb! or any of their farmhouse ales whenever you have the chance. One of the other reasons we dig the Oklahoma brewery is the artwork on their labels. We had the chance to talk with Colin Healey, who started the brewery with his brother Chase, about the design and direction of, not only what goes in the bottles, but what ...... continue reading
We've seen plenty of movies where the car or vehicle in it was really the star of the show. French illustrator, Nicolas Bannister, clearly has as well. His series of Famous Movie Cars takes the four-wheeled icons from some well-known films and displays them in all their glory. From the Ecto-1 to the DeLorean from Back ... continue reading
