Though these dioramas are a bit less into realism than the ones by Thomas Doyle that we looked at last week, they are definitely just as cool! I love the creative use of random odds and ends in each little diorama. Aren’t they cute? See more at creator Ethan Hayes-Chute’s website.

vanity and anatomy

These paintings are from an interesting set by Fernando Vincente called Vanitas, which focuses basically on “the fading of beauty and the inevitability of death.” While there is definitely a touch of the morbid to these pieces, I think they are strangely beautiful too. What do you guys think?

I want one of these hoodies by Headhoods so much! Which one would I get though? Michael Jackson, Audrey Hepburn, the Marilyn Monroe one I saw one the site? I can’t decide. I think they look so awesome though!

Thanks for your question, Maureeny. Roger is sporting a beautiful fur parka. Sometimes he accesorizes with Free People scarves and feather headbands.

The real question is...What is Rodge wearing today?

We have been so excited about the new make-up we just started to sell! We had one of our models, Renata, play with some of the samples and see what she thought. Check out the little video below, it’s really cute and fun! I can’t wait to get some sparkly eye-liner…

Aren’t these drawings and paintings awesome?! I saw them over on Booooooom, and when I went and checked out more of Casey’s work on his/her site I was not disappointed! I could hardly pick just a few to share with you on here! Definitely check out the site if you liked anything shown above. Totally worth it!

how-to satin stole

I love this tutorial from Weekend Designer on how to make your own satin stole! It’s such a gorgeous piece for spring and summer – great for dressing up an outfit, to go out dancing or to go to something fancy like a graduation! Try it for yourself here, it’s a pretty simple pattern!

I saw these on an interesting little slideshow by NY Magazine’s blog The Cut, and I had to be sure and share because I found all of the illustrations so inspirational! See the whole slideshow here.

Karen Santry is not only an amazing artist but amazing woman! I had her as a teacher in an illustration class and she's such an inspiration.

sand up close

Gary Greenburg has gone all around the world and, using an Edge 3D microscope, photographed sand at 100x magnification, sometimes more. The pictures are amazing – sand generally looks basically monotone, and it’s really cool to see how colorful and intricate it truly is! It makes me think about how far all the little grains have traveled and what they’ve been through over time… You can see the whole slideshow on Discover Magazine.

wow! those are amazing! I would love to frame a few of those

I’ve been really enjoying these pieces from Klas Ernflo‘s set Color Pad. I love the texture! I realize it’s probably paint, but for whatever reason these make me want to go and play with nail polish…

water + ink

In order to get these photos, Shinichi Maruyama has to use extremely fast strobe light photography, which can capture things that happened within a 7,500th of a second! I don’t think I can really wrap my mind around that one. If you look, you can see that he catches the water and ink at the moment before they mix into each other – you can see a little bit of just water and a little bit of just ink… Incredible!

thanks for including the pic of the actual creation of the work - it is truly amazing. i love people that have patience. ah. maybe another lifetime...

oo! i saw this work in the chelsea galleries it was so amazing. he shared a space with another artist and everybody was flocking to his work. the prints were really large and compelling

I’m not sure how many of you are into designing and making your own clothes, but I figured I’d bring your attention to this body form how-to video just in case. It’s really cheap to make one, around 10 or 15 bucks it would seem, and amusingly, one of the supplies you’ll need is a Christmas tree stand. Still, it looks like a pretty viable body form! Watch the video over here.
