Illustration // Thursday, July 12, 2012
Brick and Meat collection is a series of dismembered humans, elegantly adorned with intestines by Smithe One. Smithe’s compositional style is disturbing, yet nostalgic.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 12, 2012
Fantastic, intense works by Korea sculpture artist, Chun Sung-Myung. The faces are of his own, and the photorealistic quality makes them even more eerie to stare at. We did a bit of looking around the web to see what everyone was saying about the work, and we heard a lot of Aphex Twin references. We say ... good call.

Courtesy of NASA's panoramic camera (known as the Pancam) on the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, we now have a new view of the Martian landscape. It is quite an incredible image of our much fantasized about neighbor in the solar system. Here are some details from NASA themselves: "This scene recorded from the mast-mounted color camera includes the rover's own solar arrays and deck in the foreground, providing a sense of sitting on top of the rover and taking in the view."

We love when we stumble across an artist that one of our esteemed editors has already written about.
