Don't start chatting her up--she won't respond. Not because she's busy hurrying to save the lives of the crew of a doomed space mission, but because she's made out of silicone. All Steve Scott's Behance profile says is, this is a "project of mine to see how closely I could imitate life." Scott is an artist and illustrator, but also a portrait sculptor, a model/prop maker, creature FX creator and mould maker. The silicone used to make Sigourney come to life is ... Read More
  If Holly Andres isn’t on your radar, you’re missing out. Andres is a Portland-based photographer whose work feels akin to the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Cindy Sherman, but all the more fresh and exciting. Her photographs often explore the tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. “I’m interested in the cognitive dissonance that can result from employing formal elements such as bright ...

Her new body of sculptural work features romanticized women in pastel ball gowns with tattoos covering their bodies. From neck to wrist, each woman is covered in ornate body artwork. Harrison has featured similar figurines in her work before, however, in a much more morbid light.  The Scotland-based artist ... Read More
  Skin: we're all wrapped up in it. But some of us have to consider it more often, and more seriously, than others. How would you feel if your skin bubbled and swelled wherever it was touched? Photographer Ariana Page Russell decided to make art out of it. She has dermatographia, a condition which makes her skin hypersensitive. She's used this interesting feature of her body like a canvas, drawing on her skin and then photographing the designs the raised ... Read More
I have always been obsessed with the idea of growing up in a different decade. Would I still look like me? Would I still be like me? How would I dress?!   So it's no surprise that I am obsessed with Ohio State University student Annalisa Hartlaub's photo project “Counter//Culture." Hartlaub, 16, created a photo series in which she interprets styles from previous decades. Using herself as a model, Hartlaub showcases fashion from previous decades ; her ... Read More

Warning: This post may not be safe for work.  The artist Sarah Best creates astounding replicas of the female body, using it as a symbol that tracks the human desire for connection and intimacy; severed from the rest of the body, her sculpted hands and a cut-out collaged breasts take on a life of their own, worming their way up walls and pages and sometimes tracking blood in the process. The work, though sometimes gruesome, maintains a pulsating beauty; as if ... Read More

When someone says, "I have a special gift for making people feel comfortable in front of my camera," you're inclined to disbelieve them. We've all taken awkward school photos and family portraits. But when Sarah Deragon says it, it's 100% true.  Sarah Deragon is the mastermind behind The Identity Project, her black-and-white photo series documenting the LGBTQ community. "Since we are constantly bombarded with online images these days, I'm so happy that the ... Read More
It's time to talk about Tal Peleg. The makeup artist has made her rounds on The Huffington Post, Lost At E Minor, and flooded the dashboards of tumblr users everywhere – for good reason. Peleg absolutely shits all over everyone else's makeup game, turning her own face into a canvas of elaborately (and probably painstakingly) painted eyelids, each telling a different story. She makes use of her eyebrows, lashes and the shape of her face to create ... Read More
