16th-Century Netherlandish Carved Prayer Nuts

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 13, 2015
16th-Century Netherlandish prayer nuts are intricately carved wood items of devotion, and when one is closed it looks like an elaborate nut. These symbols of status from the Middle Ages were worn on a rosary, a belt or a sack by the wealthy in northern Europe.

Lights! Camera! Glamour! The Photography of George Hurrell

Photography // Friday, February 13, 2015
Today may be the premiere of THAT movie but this show is about 50 Shades of Black and White. Or somehow more. Light! Camera! Glamour! The Photography of George Hurrell at the Walt Disney Family Museum just opened, and it literally glows. Each jewel of a photo demonstrates how the gifted photographer used light and shadow to create a story in stillness with a gifted actor.

Merve Morkoc's Disturbed Portraits

Illustration // Friday, February 13, 2015
Hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, the morbid undertones of the work of Merve Morkoc can be felt without hesitation. Her aquarel and pastel pencil illustrations are a delightful blend of delicate portraits with a touch of the unexpected grotesque.

Nadia Lee Cohen's Erotic Retro Daydream

Erotica // Friday, February 13, 2015
Although only 22 years old and still in her final year at the London College of Fashion, fashion photographer and "ugly-pretty" connaisseur Nadia Lee Cohen has nonetheless already received numerous noteworthy accolades for her highly stylized, retro-saturated images inspired by the darker side of 1960's Americana. Cohen builds her own sets on a shoestring student budget, which is a testament to her skill as her photoshoots never fail to look beautifully polished and conceptually compelling.

Watch... “Materializing the Sea Rambler.”

PIXXXEL by Jean-Yves Lemoigne

Erotica // Thursday, February 12, 2015
Yatzer, one of the best art and design sites in the world in our opinion, is doing what a lot of people should be doing; getting ready for Valentine's Day and "Fifty Shades of Grey" cinematic release. They celebrated by putting together a compilation of erotic posts, and one was of "PiXXXel" by French photographer Jean-Yves Lemoigne that we remember seeing back in 2009 but thought it was clever. Internet, porn, art direction... a good formula. 

Adek's funeral home

Graffiti // Thursday, February 12, 2015
A black blank billboard above a funeral home is literally dead space, so while it’s serving absolutely no purpose it might as well be an advertisement for Adek’s graffiti. Can anyone really be mad at this?
