New York-based photographer, Peter Beste, definitely has style when it comes to his work.

Philadelphia based artist Erin M Riley creates incredible handwoven tapestries with hand dyed wool on nylon warp. Her work touches on issues of death, self exploitation through gender and the internet, addiction, and loneliness.
It’s that time again folks. Super intern Julie Yeo graduates from the B/D Cult University and goes off into the real world. Join me in thanking Julie for all the hard work around the office, the non-stop blogging, and the daily post office runs. We never did make her scrub the floors, get us coffee, or give back rubs to the various artists that drop by our space but hey we got a whole new batch of interns coming that can pick up on the slack. When Julie’s not busy prowling the streets at night eating brains she’s busy with her illustration and design. So make sure and stop by her site and see what she’s up to. Bust of luck Julie!

At first glance at London-based Benedict Radcliffe’s work, I thought, “Oh, a computer generated drawing of a car…okay.” Then I immediately realize it is not as boring as I had first assumed! No! These are, full scale, actual wire-frame representations of a Lamborghini, Subaru, etc.
