Paper Doll!

BY Claire Hamilton in Artsy

Now I think I'm pretty handy with scissors and paper - but I've got nothing on artist Eloise Corr Danch who crafted this beautiful dress completely from newspaper and book pages! Called 'Ruffian Paper Doll', the dress was exhibited in October at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York for the gala opening of the exhibition SLASH! Paper Under the Knife. The Victorian era–inspired dress features pages of the book Ruffian: Inside Out, and Le Monde newspapers ... Read More

Blaize of glory

BY Claire Hamilton in Artsy

The art of burlesque's been enjoying a revival in the US for years - but do you know where it all began? Britain's answer to Dita Von Teese - Immodesty Blaize - is about to tell us in a brand new feature film coming to these shores in March. Burlesque Undressed opens a window into the glamorous world of the showgirl, and features interviews with artistes from the 1950s and 1960s, including Dixie Evans (who was known as 'The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque'). From the ... Read More

    Julie Newmar will forever be known as Catwoman - a sultry villian on the campy 1960s Batman tv show. Like another version of Emma Peel,  Catwoman was swathed in black leather bodysuits with a luscious mane of hair. Not to mention, the cat ears.    She purred, she plotted, and she was the bad chick. Meow.   It's no surprise Ms. Newmar attained cult status with this role and stroked a few young minds as a result. As one thing ... Read More
  In the new year we all stock up on new supplies: organizers, planners, and the usual calendar. Lauren Marsella sent us a neat little calendar today that's a bit unconventional, funny, and snarky. Instead of typical photos of puppies or canonical art pieces, Marsella has drawn portraits of dead celebrities.   Celebs are featured in the month he or she took the big sleep. Featuring some of the late and greats: Bea Arthur, Michael Jackson and John Updike ... Read More
Ok, this is the most bizarre tribute to The Golden Girls EVER. And possibly the weirdest thing you'll see today.  Artist James Kuhn can paint his face to look like pretty much anything. From Shrek, to a human hot dog face, his work shows a deeper dedication to lipstick, powder and paint than Marilyn Manson (who, incidentally I think he has also imitated). What you are seeing here though is THREE GOLDEN GIRLS covering his entire head. Watch the video too, for ... Read More

I hope you have a good laugh at this true story captured on celluloid. Cheers!What you are seeing, view-by-view:-On the front ... Read More
The provocateur of underground comics, Robert Crumb, has another book on the chopping block and this time it's all about Adam and Eve. Crumb lends his pen to the first biblical story - rife with signature work in The Book of Genesis Illustrated.  Crumb rendered all fifty chapters of the book with precise and careful detail given to each panel. He made a career out of teetering on the fine line of controversy and proves that even the Bible doesn't stray from ... Read More
