Fear.Less

Art is great for a lot of things. It impresses the ladies (and the men) in your life. It gives you a creative outlet so you don't take out your aggression on people at work. But art is also a great way to create awareness for a cause that you feel strongly about. Fear.Less is a collab project between Daniel Ting ... continue reading

Grunge Art by Lora Zombie

When we hear the phrase "grunge art" we immediately think of Kurt Cobain in a coffee house in Seattle surrounded by sketched nudes of people we'd rather not see with their clothes off. We were, obviously, quite surprised when we came across Grunge Art by Lora Zombie. The work is dirty, grimy and dank in the same ... continue reading

Hubert de Lartigue Details

When it comes to these acrylic on canvas pieces from Hubert de Lartigue, the devil really is in the details. Each piece in de Lartigue's Details series is is an extreme close-up of one aspect of the female anatomy (mostly lips and tongues, but there is one pair of boobies so it's slightly NSFW) that is so detailed ... continue reading

Fabian Ciraolo Illustrations

Most art starts a conversation. It evokes the Cubist mentality, or the human condition or blah, blah, pretentious words, blah. Fabian Ciraolo's Illustrations are so impressive that they could be described in many of the same ways, but we like them because they're so f'ing cool. Where else are you going to find ... continue reading

Hipster Branding

Let’s talk about irony for a moment. Hipsters like to think of themselves as unique and streets ahead of everyone else, yet somehow they all look identical (square glasses, skinny jeans, scarves all-year-round). The same could be said about the logos of Hipster Branding—they too all look identical (san-serif ... continue reading

Jordan Voth Photography

Most men know how to do a lot of things but are only exceptional at a few of them. We're really good at finding cool stuff on the Internet, but calculus is an instant migraine. We could write about the newest gadgets and gear until the sun comes up, but writing about an amuse-bouche is nothing more than a flashing ... continue reading

Steve Jobs Patents

Even if you don't have a device branded by the fantastic digital fruit, it's hard to argue that Steve Jobs didn't change the world for the better with his time in our little slice of the galaxy. He touched a lot of lives in a lot of ways with his special brand of technical artistry. The New York Times put together ... continue reading

Who . . . Is . . . Hanksy?

Call us suckers but we love a good mystery (as long as it doesn't involve Nicholas Cage). We try to solve every crime on Law & Order, we look for life's meaning at the bottom of every bottle of booze (wow, that sounded depressing) and we've diligently scanned "Exit Through The Gift Shop" to see if we could ... continue reading

Typography Portraits

Using typography to create cool, wall mountable images of other things is really nothing new in the world of design. Time and time again we've seen talented artists throw the adage "a picture is worth 1,000 words" out the window in favor of using the same words to create pictures. We're not sure precisely how the ... continue reading
