Etsy user LowLevel has made an awesome set of colorful stenciled paintings, each one featuring a historical icon: Fidel Castro, Jack Kerouac, Frank Sinatra, Hunter S. Thompson, etc. Each icon is stenciled relief with an appropriate background, and the visual puns are numerous. The colors are funky and retro, and they all have the gritty feel of a propaganda poster. Many are emblazoned with appropriate quotes or verbiage from the featured individual. The subjects span decades and genres, so take a gander, you’ll likely find something you’d appreciate. They’re remarkably affordable, and you’re getting a piece that’s unique, rather than something 140,596 other people have purchased in the poster section of Ikea.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
