The title says it all for this awesome print from The Oatmeal. The perfect print for any kitchen, as Grizz spices up his kill with an ample dose of hot sauce. Signed by the artist and measures ~19″x27″.

Wooden Lampshade

Wooden Lampshade

Youtuber rikkitikkiberger captured the long process of lathing that woodturner Soren Berger uses to make one of his unique lampshades. Don’t worry, he repurposes all that scrap material.

A Perfect Vacuum

A Perfect Vacuum

Australian painter Jeremy Geddes often uses space travelers in urban environments as a motif in his hyperreal/surreal work. The results are amazing dreamlike images like these.

The Bungaloo Prints

The Bungaloo Prints

It was this epic poster for a Mastodon show that first drew us to designer/illustrator John Vogl’s work. Truth is that his great style and clever touch make it hard to find a print of his we don’t like.

Illustrator Stephen Wildish tries to make something witty each Friday. These film alphabets with clever graphics corresponding to each letter are great examples and available in plenty of print options.

Birth of a Book

Someday a “book” will be but bits of data, just one of the many functions embedded in our gadgets. Here’s a look at the soon-to-be lost art of printing and bookbinding, courtesy of Glen Milner.

Continuous Line Star Wars Art

Continuous Line Star Wars Art

Sam Hallows made five illustrations of Star Wars characters, vehicles and ships. They’re bare sketches, but what makes them impressive is that they were each made with a single, continuous line.

You’ve probably seen pictures of this crazy room floating around the Web. Watch the video to see how graffiti artist Tilt and his friends created the split-personality Panic Room at Au Vieux Panier.

Spanish photographer Victor Enrich loves taking pictures of urban landscapes, only to manipulate the structures he captures into surreal shapes that are evidently fake but still seem authentic.

Wire Sculptures

UK artist Derek Kinzett creates incredibly detailed sculptural figures using precisely formed lengths of wire. His life-size human forms are pretty amazing, but we’re partial to the motorcycle.

Darth Skeletor

Darth Skeletor

Artist Ryan Renders created this very clever and perfectly detailed bust modeled after one of the greatest mashups of evil ever conceived. Lightsaber Power Sword ftw.

John Clang Photography
