If we did anything with print magazines (if you can remember what those are), Timba Smits would most certainly illustrate the covers. Timba’s Illustration Department is a collection of his illustration works from Computer Arts Projects, Street Studio, Vampire Roller Babes, Beastie Boys, and the list goes on. His illustrations – along with being awesome – mix the humorous, the classic, and the just plain hot for a final product that looks like it’s straight out of a vault from Fallout 3. They’re definitely new, but they’ve got that same kind of vintage, “old-timey” feel as stuff from the past. It’s the illustration equivalent of The White Stripes, but with hot chicks. See for yourself, you’ll get it. If anyone ever manages to get a pair of those X-Ray Glasses, we want to borrow them.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
