Yes those are a pencil shavings of various colors, and yes, that is a self-portrait by an artist under the moniker, Anmagdan. The artist has all sorts of tips on body art, and with someone who uses pencil shavings, wax, paint, crayons, and sculptures around her face, we take her word that she is nearing authority status.

Illustrator Cody Schibi is fascinated by freaky creatures and everything monstrous. No one is safe-- men, women and children alike sprout horns, extra eyeballs, and other gruesome appendages. These creepy details are all finely rendered in pen and ink. Schibi is based in Austin, Texas.

Steve "The Q" Urkel, ALF "The Anteater" Shumway and Danny "T-Dog" Tanner are all part of Ryan Milner's new 'Sitcom Sinners' series. 'This ficticious gang was formed by some of the most beloved and iconic television characters of the early 90's. Fallen from their former lives of sitcom bliss, these harden criminals now wheel, deal and steal with the best of em', replacing that iconic t.v. twinkle with scars, tattoos, and a whole new attitude.' Milner states. Haters gon hate.

We must be into photography this morning. We have known the work of Elena Kalis for quite some time, and we love the way she can compose both a simple underwater shot with reflections and a well-acted, well-constructed surreal storyline underwater as well. She must have some very dependable models.

France-based artist, Shaka aka Marchal Mithouard, uses a combination of graffiti elements in his sculptural 3D paintings. Really enjoy the portraiture work.

We have seen this work in the past, and we love this piece, the Likecohoic, by Asaf Hanuka (yes, Tomer's brother). The best part is that we are hoping you will get your inner "likecoholic" into this post and like it yourself.

Yes, that is right. This is a ballpoint pen drawing. Samuel Silva, the artist, used 8 different colors taking 30 hours to complete it. No other media. Simply 100 % ballpoint pen. Silva is Portugal-based attorney who does art as a "hobby." I don't think much more needs to be said. Just look at it.

"I've always been interested in technology, especially the design of things and the way they're put together. It goes deeper than that, when I view humanity as a whole I have to ask 'what is it about us that wants to make all this?'"

We have touched on the idea of high fashion using skeletal make-up styles for shoots, and we are especially impressed by French photographer Pauline Darley for Ever Magazine, where model Clémentine Levy is touched up with a ghostly look. Elegant and subtle.
