Dizel&Sate mixes graphic urban and photorealistic art to stunning effect; they sell everything from limited edition posters and t-shirts to jaw-dropping wallprints (sold by the square meter).
Using nothing more than cardboard and glue, Chris Gilmour creates life-size replicas of familiar objects. We’re amazed at the complexity of some of his pieces, including the trike (above).
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.
Inspired by retro memorabilia of the 80s, Jonathan Ball crafted this super cool Ms. Pac-Man poster with Blender. It’s the same open-source package used for Big Buck Bunny.
Nothing beats an old fashioned zombie attack to get the blood pumpin’: this Zombie Hunt Lego diorama by Justin Vaughn is inspired by Max Brooks’ Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z.
Available at Vladstudio.com, Planet Earth Inversed is one of those wallpapers that has you poring over the creative details. The neutral color scheme is easy on the eyes, too.
Scott Wade takes one-of-a-kind art to extremes with his dirty car art, which he brushes onto dusty car windows. To get the dirt to stick, he rubs almond oil onto the windows. His latest gallery is here.
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.
PatternTap.com is a boon to web designers; it compiles examples of common website parts (borders, comments, backgrounds). It’s a great place to get ideas and inspiration.
Springfield Punx is a pet project of artist Dean Fraser; he does an amazing job creating Simpsons styled versions of popular superheroes and celebs. Our fave: The Dark Knight‘s Joker.
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.
Just in case you haven’t had a chance to catch the 2008 Olympics opening ceremonies in Beijing: Boston.com has a fantastic collection of photographs here.
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.
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.
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.
It’s tough not to like Christian Lorenz’s sci-fi and fantasy-themed art. The scenes are imaginative, colorful, and often thought provoking. Gallery Nucleus carries several of his prints.
Every model builder’s dream: this scale model of Shanghai covers over 1,000 square feet. It visualizes the city in 2020, and includes both existing and approved buildings.
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 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.
Threadless legend Glenn Jones has opened his own shop; it’s filled with his signature tongue-in cheek graphic tees. New in the store: Evolution (asphalt), perfect for Lego fanatics.
Michael Rea is like the boy that never grew up, and we envy him for that. He creates wood sculptures with a sci-fi/geeky twist, from Indiana Jones’ Lost Ark to giant samurai mecha.
David Lanham is one of our favorite artists (you may know his work at Iconfactory), so we’re thrilled to see his vinyl Zog at StrangeKiss. Also available: Murder Zog, a Lanham/Kozik collab.
Fresh for this summer, the fifth volume of Kazu Kibuishi’s Flight series of books is now available. Inside are 368 enjoyable, full-color pages from 23 accomplished comic book artists.
Peter Callesen is an amazing paper artist; his latest “White Diary” is a human head filled with thought processes and stories. His works use nothing more than A4 or A5 paper, pencil and glue.
Graffiti doesn’t get much respect as an art form, but it looks pretty cool as furniture. These pieces are by industrial designer Luis Alicandu, who is also an editor at design blog MoCoLoCo.
