Citizen Cube

It looks like a primitive Borg Cube, but we’re sure the Citizen Cube won’t be doing any assimilating: it’s the work of artist Brenda Guyton, who creates sculptures from found computer parts.

Rainbow-colored shirts aren’t our thing (tye dye gives us headaches); thankfully, White Bread’s Rainbows tee is blue and shades of grey. Thumbs up for the hand-drawn look.

Artist Bekijk Michael Karcz’s creepy manipulated photos are some of the best we’ve seen. His mastery of composition and use of atmosphere borders on supernatural.

Eboy Tokyo Pixel Poster

We have dreams (nightmares?) like Eboy’s Tokyo Pixel Poster, which makes this a must-buy. Sure, the giant robots are cool, but I bet you didn’t see the naked chicks on rockets.

Smoke Art

We generally think of smoke as the byproduct of some other process, but these photographs highlight the seemingly chaotic wisps and curls. The result is intimate, artistic, and awe-inspiring.

I Love Boxie Tees

I Love Boxie Tees

Boxies Tees are ideal for folks who don’t like commercialized, mass-produced tees. In short, they’re anti-tees: each one imperfect, with incomplete messages and smudges.

Boombox Project

Boomboxes have been called many things, from ghetto blasters to jam boxes. We can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic as we view the photos in Lyle Owerko’s Boombox Project.

Typewriter Sculptures

Typewriter Sculptures

Jeremy Mayer makes complex sculptures out of typewriter parts; the human figures in particular are anatomically correct (within reason). No soldering, welding or gluing; it’s all cold assembly.

Concept Ships Blog

Concept Ships Blog

Concept Ships is stuffed to the brim with spaceship and experimental aircraft art. Be warned: if you have even the slightest interest in future tech, you’ll easily waste hours here.
