Children of the Light

This is from the Pulp Art Book that photographer Neil Krug and his model wife, Joni Harbeck, put out together. Joni portrays many different roles in these series of beat up, old school polaroids. I've seen a lot of the photos on Flickr, and I am dying to get my hands on the book someday. I'm sure it is amazing.

Cheers to the future...Happy New Year!

Ugly Casanova

I don't know me and you don't know you
So we fit so good together
Cause I knew you like I knew myself
We clung on like barnacles on a boat
Even though the ship sinks
You know you can't let go

Harry Clarke

Harry Clarke was an incredible Irish illustrator. His intricate layers of patterns weaving through his drawings amazes me. I love intricate details. All of them carry this dark, mystical vibe, which is something I'm always drawn to. Magic!

Gold Lion

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

I've been listening to a lot of Yeah Yeah Yeahs lately. Singing with Karen O always seems to make me feel better. I've always loved this song. Her voice is so raw and beautiful in this acoustic version.

Beach Fossils

I've known about this album for a few months now, and the more I listen to it, the more I love it. Some of my favorite tracks: "Youth", "Twelve Roses", "Daydream", "Golden Age", and "Wide Awake".

Ken Garduno





Just recently discovered Ken Garduno's illustrations thanks to a friend. His work is great. I'm a huge fan of his style. I love his use of acrylic ink. Something about natural wash patterns always gets me.

Twin Shadow

I'm in love with this song because it's a love-hating song. And I'm a love hater at the moment. Plus it's a beautiful song, I think. Especially acoustic. And I also think George Lewis, Jr. would be an interesting character to meet.


I never went to this show. That's not why I'm posting this. I'm posting this poster because it's effing AWESOME! These illustrations are the best. I want to make posters like this. I wish Josh Journey-Heinz (the artist) had a website, but I can't seem to find one. If I do in the future I will post it.

Don't Die In Me


All the time you felt so free
Did you forget how much you once loved me
And if you want something back
All the things that got cracked
When I felt like you lied to me
And all the million mistakes
And the kicks in the face
But I don't want you to die in me

Caitlin Hackett

"In my work I am exploring the relationship between humans and animals; the idea of the human denial of our animal nature and of humans as the dominant species, as well as the mutation of the animal created by the human interpretation of the animal. My work alludes to the boundaries that separate humanity from animals both physically and metaphysically, as well as the objectification of and personification of animals. I invent creatures, anthropomorphic, mutated, or pseudo mythical in imagery, using my imaginary world and bringing it into the physical world in an attempt to create a language that speaks about the human animal relationship and the natural and unnatural elements of it. I am faced with the fact that we live in a planet in decline, where almost every natural ecosystem in the world is slipping away. Human kind has created a planet of refugees; animals forced to flee ever farther from the insatiable encroachment of urban development, victims of a war for space which they cannot hope to win. My drawings refer to this decline and to the refugees it has created. I am left with the question of what is natural; are we (human beings) still a part of nature? If so, does that make all that we have created, cities, vehicles, factories, all technology, part of nature as well? As we move into an increasingly plastic, electronic, and robotic culture how can we define our own fundamental nature as the nature of the world around us changes and our metaphysical identity evolves into something beyond the human as an animal?..."

James Jean

Petite Courbet

I like James Jean's jumbled, collage-like sketches. I think they're really interesting. He also has a lot of his paintings and other drawings on his website.

Käthe Kollwitz

Unemployment, 1909

Revolt, 1899

The Mothers, 1921

Kollwitz is known for her depictions of poverty and suffering during the turbulent years of world war. I really like her minimal use of color. She managed to beautifully broadcast the dark depression of this time period.

Planet Caravan

Black Sabbath

We sail through endless skies
Stars shine like eyes
The black night sighs
The moon in silver trees
Falls down in tears
Light of the night
The earth, a purple blaze
Of sapphire haze
In orbit always

While down below the trees
Bathed in cool breeze
Silver starlight breaks down the night
And so we pass on by the crimson eye
Of great God mars
As we travel the universe
