New York is a pretty cool place. We all know about the endless supply of renowned museums, and Central Park is like a magical (though overcrowded) forest, but did you know that since 1992 it has been legal for women to be topless in public? Admittedly, it is still rare to actually see a woman brave enough to do so--just because it's legal doesn't mean it's socially acceptable--but on these hot July days it’s getting more and more tempting.  Jordan ...

In need of an out-of-this-world drawing  inspiration? Are your friends too impatient to pose for your vision of a sexy American Gothic? Come to Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School and get ready to do some saucy sketches. Featured in BUST's October/November ’08 issue, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School was founded in 2005 by artists Molly Crabapple and A.V. Phibes. It's currently run solely by Crabapple, a New York City-based illustrator whose inspirations ... Read More
I love the internet, because it allows for pictures like this to be exposed to the world. I don't know how many times I've ordered a burrito and thought "I feel like I'm about to ingest an infant." Which I've always thought was a unique, vaguely disturbing thought- apparently it's not! This picture proves that I'm not a sicko! Hallelujah! Burritos have the same heft and warmth of a baby. Except burritos are significantly more delicious. This picture is also great ... Read More
Thanks to Blue Water Productions, iconic funny lady Lucille Ball is getting her own comic for her 100th birthday. Written by Jaymes Reed and illustrated by Patricio Carbajal, this 32-page comic book will explore her multifaceted career, as well as her contributions to society - she is an inductee in the National Women's Hall of Fame - and the tremendous influence she had on the American public.  Publisher Darren G. Davis said, “ Our goal is to show ... Read More
I’m one of those girls who wish they’d been born earlier so they could’ve attended the Evergreen State College during the early ‘90s and spent their days xeroxing zines and comics at their lame part time jobs. But now I’m a Generation Z college student on the east coast, reading Jeffrey Brown and Lynda Barry and spending too much time (and money) at coffee shops. (Sometimes, I sit at a local Barnes and Noble and pretend to be drawing ... Read More
Recently featured on The Ones 2 Watch, check out some cosmic inspired work by one of my favorite up and coming photographers, Ignacio Torres. His most recent project, Stellar, uses a similar gif format to blogger Jamie Beck's lovely cinemagraphs, but while her photos create a more realistic movement and tone, Torres’ work evokes a different kind of magically whimsical quality that instantly catches your eye.   He explains Stellar by stating on his ...

When I hear “tape art”, I often think of duct tape dresses or hall decorations in college dorms. If I heard that someone was pushing to have “tape art” in a gallery space, I would most likely question the artist’s intent and skill level. But the sophistication and quirkiness of Kayt Hester’s masking tape pieces make me rethink what goes on a canvas, let alone the walls of a gallery show.Using ripped up bits of ordinary black ...

Imagine browsing the racks of your favorite thrift store and finding the perfect dress. It fits like a dream and is super cheap—but wait! Is there a hidden poem on that tag?! Seems like the kind of thing that only happens in movies or dreams, but Agustina Woodgate is making it a reality with the latest form of guerrilla arts activism. The Miami-based interdisciplinary artist has committed to spreading a little more art and beauty to unexpected places, and ... Read More
Shary Boyle is a young Canadian artist residing in Toronto, Canada whose work dabbles on the darker side of life. Her sculpture, projections, paintings and drawings are eerie and undoubtedly beautiful. It seems her work possesses an overtly feminist point of view that doesn’t take itself too seriously.  Her sculpture is perfection. The pieces are intricate, well thought-out and simply fantastic. She has even collaborated with the likes of Feist and ... Read More
I'd seen a few Missed Connection images before via tumblr, but my friend sent me the blog last night and I knew it should be Blog of the Week! Missed Connections is an illustration blog by Sophie Blackall, which takes inspiration from the missed connections of others and creates something whimsical from them. The images are ridiculously adorable and the sentiment behind them ranges from sweet and heart-warming to fascinating or strange. As someone who loves ... Read More
