NSFW: Russian designer Ramm ND has an aptly suggestive name, as his racy beer can art is some of the strangest yet smartest we’ve seen; the pantyhose can is pure genius.

From robots to UFOs to giant monsters, Franco Brambilla takes classic sci-fi staples and mixes them with near-photorealistic imagery; some giclee prints are available here. Thanks, Rick!
