Good buddy and painter extraordinaire Alison Blickle turned me onto the work of Christoph Ruckhäberle the other day and my mind was immediately blown.These paintings are completely bizarre and incredibly beautiful. Everything from the choice of color, the abstraction of the human body, and the strange vintage imagery sets it aside from work that you see on most gallery walls!
Danish painter Peter Ravn successfully utilizes depth and color in his paintings. I am especially intrigued by his series of business men contorted in obscure positions.
Musician Jun Seba, also known as Nujabes passed away late last month after a fatal car crash at age 36. Why it took almost a month later for everyone to catch wind of it, I’m not sure but, pest in peace. You were so young and so amazingly talented. This video above was circulating the web for a bit- “Luv (sic) pt. 2” Nujabes featuring Shing02 and directed by Sou Ootsuki. Doesn’t watching it makes you feel alive? In a really breathtakingly normal way?
Since early cinema, The Bronson Caves in Los Angeles have been used as a film location, appearing in Science Fiction (“Invasion Of The Body Snatchers“) and western movies (“The Searcher“) and many television shows.

Just how is this possible?
Well, using “outdoor lenticular” technology, a dualistic message is transmitted. Adults see a simple clean awareness message while children see a slightly bruised variation on the advert, directing them to a help crisis line.
These beautiful drawings by Artaksiniya incorporate aspects of collage and fashion illustration.
It seems talent is coming at a younger age these days. At only 22 years old South Afcrian Paul Ward is a photographer to watch and follow with more work in his portfolio than most seasoned vets. His series of people simply looking at the camera and screaming is simple yet breathtaking group of images. Scream with Paul Ward and friends after the jump.
