Sakura Gari 02 282x400 Sakura Gari

Of all the Japanese manga I have encountered, Yuu Watase‘s Sakura Gari is possibly the first that has intrigued me.

Before I go any further, do know that it is a work that evolves mostly around a gay relationship, so if that is somewhat distasteful for you, stop reading this post. [ Continue Reading ]

Hamasaki Ayumi Hamasaki Ayumi (then and now)

It’s hard to believe that all 5’1 of a rebellious teenager raised by a single mother could become Japan’s “Queen of Pop”.

That, however, is exactly what Hamasaki Ayumi did. [ Continue Reading ]

Daft Cyrill Clunev

Cyrill Clunev is a Russian artist who sees the world through a trapper keeper from 1996. That’s an obscure image, to be sure, but Clunev’s abstract works are reminiscent of the same kind of computer-generated commercial post-post-modernism you want accessorizing your homework as an 11-year-old on the go. Or maybe that was just me. [ Continue Reading ]

504x big pic Gigantor comes to life (sort of)

Oh, I had to jump on this.

I’ve never heard of Gigantor, but apparently it was a Japanese cartoon from the ’60′s whose popularity brought it state-side. The series focused on the hijinks of a twelve-year-old boy who controls an enormous robot named Gigantor, despite having a human character named Dick [ Continue Reading ]

obama 585x380 Maya Hayuk induces acid like trips, gains fans the world over

Maya Hayuk is a lady. Her work features an array of psychedelic colours and patterns that make the eyeballs bleed, in a good way. But all of this doesn’t matter anyway. She could be a serial killer and she would still be, like, uber kewl. [ Continue Reading ]

Belin 1 334x400 Crazy Cool GraffitiWe’ve all encountered unfortunately ugly instances of graffiti. From Los Angeles to New York City, it’s a problem that can, and frequently does, occur in the oddest of places. Sometimes you even wonder how people get into these weird spaces. It’s gotta be hard to sneak in and out of places like the Subway, what with oncoming trains, puddles of fetid water, and armies of rodents. Errr…but that’s neither here nor there.

Tape Art 1 Packing Tape Art

This is one of those “wth?” things. How did Mark Khaisman know that his medium of choice was packing tape? At what point did he wake up in the morning, do a nice, long stretch and say “Ah, yes. I think today I’m going to create beautifully detailed pictures using backlit packing tape on acrylic panels?”

I 585x378 MIGHTY MASSACHUSETTS

The amount of work and detail and time and (probably) tears that go into Don Gorvett‘s woodcut reduction prints is borderline-disturbing. [ Continue Reading ]
