Psychedelic Robot Skulls by David M. Cook

Illustration // Friday, May 03, 2013
David M. Cook is the architect of a mischievous microcosm. Amicable and unassuming, he hardly seems the “type” to consistently and skillfully crank out such a lewd labyrinth of work, but the cheeky hedonism comes all too naturally. Based in Brooklyn but originally from Louisville, Kentucky, David (who also answers to Bonethrower) uses no shortage of fine lines to design a world that is equal parts modern mysticism and memento mori—at the end of the day, it all sinks in like a psychotropic drug.

Bargain Bin Blasphemy

Illustration // Thursday, May 02, 2013
"Bargain Bin Blasphemy" is a blog run by this dude who buys discount records from thrift stores and turns them into Satan-worshipping works of art. Bargain Bin has created such masterpieces as Michael Jackson's "Killer," The Beach Boys' "Endless Murder," "The Satanic Side of Cher," "Killy Joel Eats Shit" and the perennial "Satan" and Garfunkel's "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Pain." Bargain Bin has found the dark side of all these musical classics and catalogues them in diligent fashion on his blog. Hit this guy up if you're looking for some kitschy Satanic  remastering of your favorite Simon and Garfunkel Album. As Bargain Bin would say, "NOG, SATAN, AND THE DARK WAY."  

Organic Artworks by Atelier Olschinsky

Illustration // Thursday, May 02, 2013
Atelier Olschinsky creates digital landscapes that are design, pattern, image and map at the same time. Based in Vienna, Austria, Olschinsky's work consumes the viewer into these ebbing realms of color and shape. His handling of digital media is astounding, lending him the ability to create ostensibly any imagined world he might conceive of. The compositions are meant to draw on organic forms, mimicking and expanding on naturally occurring patterns.

Steven Ketchum's Paintings of Friction

Illustration // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Steven Ketchum is a 29 year old designer and artist living in Brooklyn, NY. These multi-media paintings reflect a sense of confusion, anxiety or conflict as Ketchum sees it in the world. Ketchum says that his work "depicts dualities and the friction opposing forces present." The work depicts representative portions of bodies, facies and limbs, while each drawing devolves into curvilinear swaths of paint, representing fields of flux and ambiguity. These paint swaths are incredibly evocative and strange, giving these drawings a mysterious and dynamic element. We love these weird drawings. Ketchum spends his time drawing, reading, running, practicing Muay Thai and sleeping.
