Ryan Lake’s Bored In The Suburbs

Ryan Lake’s seamless blend of traditional and digital techniques create  loose narratives of characters caught in a world of their own. My favorite works are his ongoing series series of images dealing with boredom in the suburbs which is a theme I can relate to. Being bored in the burbs was one of the main reasons I started Beautiful/Decay! If you like Ryan’s work make sure to pick up a copy of the Beautiful/Decay: Underdogs book which features Ryan’s work.

Awesome Video Of The Day: Natural Beauty

Lernert & Sander embrace the urge for cosmetic overkill in Natural Beauty where they apply 365 layers (1 years worth) of makeup in one day to see how much is needed to go from a natural look to an outrageous one. Makeup artist Ferry van der Nat and his assistant Vanessa Chan helped to execute the vision, slathering a host of Ellis Faas products on Belgian beauty Hannelore Knuts, who was recently named the new face of Swiss fashion house Akris. Lernert & Sander began collaborating in 2006; since then they’ve done everything from melt a chocolate bunny with a hairdryer to repurpose household appliances as sex toys in the name of video art.

Design Watch: Vial’s Fida Folding Mat

Appealing design and intelligent function come together in Vial’s Fida Folding Mat.  The next time you need to sit on the ground, plan ahead and get yourself this mat. Turn heads at the park, and make people jealous of your good taste and better design sense. It’s reversible, sturdy, has a pocket to store your reading materials, packs up easily and my favorite part is that it folds into a backrest. If you have a birthday gift coming up, this would be an awesome thing to get.

Dan Gluibizzi’s Voyeuristic Watercolors

Dan Gluibizzi’s work combines voyeurism with soft wash watercolor, creating pieces that feel like you’re looking in on strangers lives from a distance. He uses images from the internet, sometimes amateur porn photos but recreates his pieces in a completely refreshing manner. Viewing his work is nothing like viewing the photos they came from, he adds a sense of curiosity and innocence in his figures that comes through beautifully in his medium.
