On this lovely Labor Day afternoon we're really digging these experimental fashion pieces from Australian illustrator Justin Maller and NYC-based photographer Chris Knight. They're a prime example of the beauty that can arise when fashion, illustration, and erotica converge.

It has been awhile since we check in with Perth, Australia-based, and former April 2010 cover artist, Charlie Isoe, but we were looking at his old cover image in our office yesterday and thought... damn, Charlie is a talented painter. The works always felt full of energy, ideas, command, but also loose and exploratory. Although he hasn't shown in a few years, we expect something interesting whenever Isoe has a new body of work.
