Erotica // Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Illustrator and designer Keith P. Rein, aka The P is for Penis, received his BFA from the University of Georgia in 2006 with a focus in photography. On the creation of his rather unique and titillating studio name, Rein says: "My wife and I were brainstorming a moniker for my sexy work... I've always signed my work with my middle initial, and out of the blue she chuckles 'Keith P. Rein - the P is for penis. And now it's stuck (but not in a bad way)."

Deer Shaped Electricity Pylons

Street Art // Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Here is a unique concept that would put some life into the mundane electricity pylons we are all accustom to seeing.  The Moscow-based design firm, Design Depot, created these visual samples of what it would look like if the structures resembled a deer.  Most likely not cost efficient, but look more interesting than the standard design.

Bei Badgirl

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
It's hard to tell if it's a case of "art reflects life" or "life reflects art" with Australian artist Bei Badgirl, her acrylic paintings of buxom mermaids and lingerie-clad girls totally echoing her pop personality and aesthetic: bubbly and hyper-feminine, with a hint of erotic sass. Her sexy/cute handy work will be showing at Hasbro's "My Little Pony Project 2012" exhibit, opening May 5th at Toy Art Gallery in Los Angeles.

Thoughts on America by Lush

Graffiti // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Australian-born graffiti writer, Lush, often causes controversy when his name is brought up.  Ether you like him or you don’t, but you can’t deny he stays busy painting.  We enjoy a good laugh in the serious world of graffiti and this newest piece does just that.

Javier Godoy

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Based in Murcia, Spain, artist Javier Godoy graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia with a degree in Fine Art. A self-professed perfectionist, Godoy is obsessed with every aspect of the art-making process from composition to finish. His tightly composed and loosely stylized images also posses a wickedly wry sense of humor (we're looking at you, pin-up wookie).
