The banana pool table by Cleon Daniel

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 16, 2013
Maybe this is because we are super excited about the new Arrested Development season, but anything with a banana right now is on our radar. Cleon Daniel has created this hybrid of pool and miniature golf with the Banana Pool Table, complete with yellow felt and 4 holes instead of 6. We say there is a new beer pongish game to be had here....

An Interview with Illustrator + Tattoo Artist Nomi Chi

Illustration // Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Nomi Chi’s work is of mythical proportions, throwing fairytale creatures in dialogue with mysterious female figures, ghosts and beauties of the wood. Nomi has been tattooing since she was a teenager and is constantly pushing her work to new levels of aesthetic badassery. She is a creature of detail, a serious artisan whose illustrations and tattoos operate on both a decorative and thought-provoking level. Chi’s artwork is simply as gorgeous as it is strange. Order some of her hand-made work or get your skin weirdified by her as soon as possible.
