Christine Osinski's series Chicago explores the Illinois city she called home as a child.

The Works of Ethan Murrow

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 31, 2014
The characters in Ethan Murrow's amazingly rendered narratives are consistently averse to criticism and assistance. These figures, mostly male, are doomed to failure and prone to dysfunction...

If you want to be disoriented, as well as impressed, then these "polyhedral panorama" illustrations from Rorik Smith are quite amazing to behold.

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 31, 2014
I love October. Not only is it the month of Halloween (my favorite religious holiday), but it is also the month of Divine’s birth (Oct. 19th is the special day, Happy Belated, Beautiful!). John Waters’s muse. David Hockney painted him, Anthony Friedkin photographed him, Andy Warhol interviewed him. Enjoy!

Designers Hack 3D Printer to Make an Automated Tattoo Machine

Design // Thursday, October 30, 2014
Appropriate Audiences, a Paris-based design studio, has taken a 3D printer and combined it with a tattooist's needle to make an automated Tattoo "Printer." The studio took Autodesk software and turned tattoo designs into digital files that are downloaded into the machine. Then, a brave soul inserts the part of their body they wish to get tattooed and the needle starts working away at their skin. The needle is able to read and respond to changes in skin texture and the dimensions of the limb.

Nadezhda Illarionova's Dark Fairy Tales

Illustration // Thursday, October 30, 2014
Nadezhda Illarionova is a Russian graphic artist and illustrator. Her whimsical illustrations, with nude nymph harpists and a cathedral filled with grisaille human-swan hybrids, seem as if they are pulled right from children's stories. But with dark, earthy palettes and faces that range from surprised to devious, we suspect these images telling the Grimm not Disney versions.
