Antony Crossfield’s Intertwined Bodies

Photography by artist Antony Crossfield. I love his manipulation of the form of the body, as well as the feeling that each image is a still from a larger narrative.

Beautiful/Decay & Aidan Kick Leukemia’s Ass!

It’s not often that I post artwork by kids but the Aidan really struck a chord with me.¬†Aidan is no ordinary 5 year old boy, in fact he is quite extraordinary. What sets him apart from most kids is his love for all things scary. He loves monsters, clowns, drawing, and dressing up. He doesn’t wait for Halloween to roll around to have an excuse to wear a costume. And you better believe while in costume he will break character for nothing. His Drawings are full of attitude and motion, featuring werewolfs, scary clowns, and ghoulish monsters (i.e. my favorite stuff!) We’re probably the first art blog to feature Aidan but don’t be too surprised if we shortly become the first Art publication to feature him as well!

Another thing that makes Aidan different than most children is that on September 13, 2010 he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).  He was strong and pulled through his first round of chemo all while teasing his nurses and vistors. Although this was a small victory, Aidan unfortunately must go through 2 to 3 more years of chemo treatments and everything that goes along with that.

In an effort to help raise funds for Aidan Beautiful/Decay will donate $2 dollars from every subscription from October 29th to November 30th towards Aidan’s medical bills. It’s a small gesture but with the help of fellow B/D Cult members we can help raise money for a good cause and support our fellow artist Aidan. Make to forward this post to all your friends. I know that times are tough but one of our own needs us! So get those wallets out, get a subscription or two to Beautiful/Decay and help us kick some Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia ass!
