Coro is one of our favorite artists working today. Maybe saying artist isn't enough: he draws, illustrates, paints, graffitis, game designs, character designs, does advertising work, movie production, and some product design when all of this isn't enough.

Marcel Duchamp was an O.G. disruptive innovator of art as we know it. At the tail end of March this year, the Haas School of Business at U.C. Berkeley hosted the Economist's Ideas Economy: Innovation conference, generally focused on innovation, but with the more specific theme of disruptive innovation woven through the day's activities.

A recent article on Hyperallergic investigated the astounding growth of photos taken with camera phones.

According to National Geographic, last year 37% of the images taken in the U.S. were captured with camera phones, and this number is expected to rise to 50% by 2015.

Variety sells and I would just hate if all the Tomo77 work looked the same."

And you thought just sitting for a portrait was laborious. French photographer Xavier Lucchesi uses a medical scanner as the basis for his portrait work, where he takes the final X-ray and adds color, highlighting certain shapes or organs.
