Before tramp stamps, barbwire armbands, and tribal whatevers, tattoos were actually a subculture--a relatively low-profile underground phenomenon that only gained steam several decades ago. One guy in particular helped advance the art of the tattoo (both literally and figuratively) onto a higher plane. Sailor Jerry, ... continue reading
Since the time you were little you've been trained to be a winner. It might have evolved from Mom and Dad coming to t-ball games and cutting orange slices into college counselors and job interviews, but one thing is for sure - men like winning. Being the best at what you do is just a natural evolution of that. ... continue reading

Honestly, we don't even know where to begin with this one. Volpin Props does it harder, better, faster, stronger then anyone we've seen in quite some time. It takes a lot of dedication - and a fair bit of insanity - to devote 17 months (that's like two whole kids) to create your own Daft Punk helmet. In that amount ... continue reading
We're pretty sure that Hilo Chen is actually a robot in disguise because his paintings are so photo-realistic that it's the only solution that makes sense. There's just no way a mere mortal could capture the intricacies like he does. Things like sweat glistening on boobs, pussy placement (talking about the cat, ... continue reading
Kim Cogan is a guy just like any other, he enjoys shirtless women on the bed, cityscapes, and comic books. He just happens to be such a good painter that he makes a living doing what he loves. His artwork is partially abstract and partially realistic which is something that seems ridiculous at first but it's basically ... continue reading
Sooner or later, all antiquated technology ends up as art. We'd have no problem filing most of this so called art in the "shit I'd never hang in my house" category, but every once in a while someone like Carlos Aires comes along and turns the tables on things. His series Love Is In The Air is composed completely ... continue reading
Go ahead and file this one under Automotive Concept Designs That Blow Your Mind Then Never Ever Get Made. Yanko Design's idea of the 2020 Harley Davidson is one beautiful bike. Thoroughly modern, with cues taken from the new Macbook (and--just tossing this out there--Megan Fox), the motorcycle still retains ... continue reading
Ask any artist to describe their work and you'll probably get a pompous, arrogant, douchey response about some fundamental theory of design with a one word name that was originally developed by some Parisian (because they can't just call them French) during the Renaissance. Not Logan Hicks. Logan Hicks is a stencil ... continue reading
Marketing is something we're forced to interact with on a daily basis - whether we like it or not. None of us is immune to it because we've all ended up ordering an otherwise shitty beer in hopes that it will make us more interesting (it won't), or an even shittier towel in hopes it's really as absorbent as we ... continue reading
When it comes to "art," there's a different style, period, painter, illustrator, and medium for everyone. Maybe your favorite artist is Duchamp, maybe it's Van Gogh. The point is, getting dudes to agree on something they couldn't normally care less about used to be difficult - and then there was bodypainting.
Take ... continue reading
There are a lot of people that think creativity is something you either have or you don't. Apparently it's like a penis and either you were fortunate when you were born or you're screwed for the rest of your life. Well they're wrong. There are plenty of books, websites, and people that will help you with your apparent ... continue reading
Rock stars get whatever the hell they want - the women, the drugs, the access - but they're people too. Much like the rest of us, they love the Internet. When Adam Gontier (lead singer of Three Days Grace) came across artist Chris Conte's biomechanical arm he thought - like the rest of us - that it was awesome. ... continue reading

Art Deco was a popular international art design movement primarily inspired by the blah, blah, blah. If it doesn't have to do with cool things you can hang on your walls or your body, or park in your garage - we don't give a shit about international art design movements.
BMW will single-handedly change your ... continue reading
Activities like biking keep kids off the streets, or nowadays off the couch, the former of which eight-time national champion Rahasan Bahati understands personally. Now here's your chance to get off the couch and help inner-city youths have a bright future.
In support of the Bahati Foundation, graffiti artist ... continue reading
