Grayson Castro is our kind of artist.  He takes iconic images of, well, icons… and zombifies them.  As zombies hit a sort of renaissance in today’s pop culture (along with, unfortunately, vampires), Castro saw fit to take it into the high-brow world of art. Each painting is of a famous figure–Audrey Heburn, Dolly Parton, McCain and Obama (each with a tasty piece of baby), and even Lindsay Lohan, who looks alarmingly normal even as a zombie mess).  Blood splatter, beady dead eyes, and menacing stares adorn our favorite public figures.  They’ve vibrant and pretty–sort of the antithesis of zombiness–but perhaps that’s what makes them amusing and compelling.  Also, there’s a pretty hot one of zombie stripper kneeling in a pile of cash.

The Ridge is a modern, slim, front pocket wallet, made to declutter the modern lifestyle. The main compartment is an expandable card holder, for any and all forms of plastic payment and identification. Attached to that is your choice of a money clip or cash strap for when old fashioned paper money is your best option. Being on the smaller, compact side means the Ridge doesn’t encourage the typical flotsam and jetsam acquisition of the traditional leather bi-fold, with its faded receipts and unnecessary cards. The Ridge re-evaluates your everyday carry and gets rid of the bulk.
