We have shown you the body art of Chooo-San before on the site, but we love some of the "back" work the artist has created. Although we are a little weirded out by the dude that lives in the girl's back, we appreciate some of the simpler works like you see here. (via)
If a messy kid's room was rolled up into a ball and hung from the ceiling, this is what it would look like. SuttonBeresCuller are three artists (John Sutton, Ben Beres and Zac Culler) who created this installation entitled "Small Moons" at the Land of Tomorrow gallery in Louisville, Kentucky. (via)

The new song from YACHT is available as a direct download for 99 cents. Proceeds from the sales (and from T-Shirts) will go to the EFF, writes the band's Claire Evans (who is also editor of Omni Reboot): "The song features anawesome guitar solo by comedian and podcaster Marc Maron, another strong advocate of digital rights."
MAKE Sales Manager Brigitte Kunde shared this amazing build with us, spotted online by a friend of hers. Pete Fecteau used over 4,000 Rubik’s Cubes to create this 18′ 6″ x 9′ 8″ mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King. Apparently Rubik’s-based artwork is a “thing.” There’s Rubik’s Einstein, Lincoln, Sitting Bull, Kathy Lee and Hoda(?). There’s even a name for the genre: Rubikcubism.
All of you have probably heard of Holga, the king of toy cameras. The vintage vignetting and lens flare that some of us want on our photos that can only be done through editing or even the “creative” light leaks that the Holga have been popularly known for have become a pain to achieve. With the number of films being discontinued and to never be seen again, it’s a scary time for film shooters. However, Photojojo has come up with a solution that just might satisfy your inner hipster. Not everyone can afford to constantly buy medium format film and to get the rolls developed only to find out a couple of images were actually good. The Digital Holga lens is essentially what its name suggests. It’s a plastic Holga lens that mounts directly onto your Canon or Nikon DSLR body that instantly turns your pro setup into a nostalgic reminder of the good ol’ days.
Slap on the Digital Holga lens and get instant gratification through your camera’s screen and see the keepers as you capture them. Instead of being restricted by the amount of film you can afford, now you can take thousands upon thousands and heart-warming Holga-esque photos without having to worry about your wallet. We’ve previously reviewed the DianaF+ lens, which is a similar lens from Lomography, and came out with some excellent photos. Head on over here to check them out.
The Digital Holga Lens is available through Photojojo at a refreshingly low price of $30 for either the Canon or Nikon model.
Allied to "Lowbrow Art", the californien painter mixes in his work american and aisan culture, biblical details, trends, food, street ... He is trying to liberate himself from our consumer society through his art while being aware of the difficulty of the mission.
One of the booths at New York Comic Con that caught my eye was the one above, by artist Issa Ibrahim, who specializes in (sometimes risqué) pieces featuring comic book characters. "Love Among the Ruins" is not only a take on one of my favorite pictures ever, "The Kiss" by Alfred Eisenstaedt, it brings together two "warring factions" of pop culture -- Marvel and DC. If there's anything we need in our deeply divided country right now, it's seeing a Marvel character (Captain America) passionately kissing a DC character (Wonder Woman).
What the world needs now is love, superhuman love...
Today is Election Day, and we look back on Jason Heuser's awesome sereies of reimaging past Commander-in-Chiefs as new and improved superheroes. So, you get JFK as a riding a unicorn on the moom, Lincoln riding a bear with a machine gun and copy of the Gettysburg Address. We want to know what Obama gets if he gets a second term? Does Romney fight aliens? In Heuser's Etsy store, there are prints available, but here is a good selection of President's with super-human powers.
Characters from Wes Anderson movies serve as inspiration for Alphabet posters in a minimalist meets Saul Bass style by Madrid designer and Illustrator Hexagonall.18 different posters take characters from Wes Anderson's films (from Bottle Rocket to The Royal Tannenbaums) and turn them into Alphabet posters with quips and quotes from the films:
Du 78 trs de Fats Waller ou du Duke que l’on peut même faire tourner sans l’aide d’un prise de courant, du 45 trs souple édité par Banania dans les années 70 qui semble sentir le chocolat, du 33 trs édité par le label Trimicron mi 70 contenant une heure sur chaque face par un procédé incroyable, du disque carte postal en carton, du format 10 pouces sur lequel on enregistrait une dédicace pour un proche dans les studios Ducretet Thomson dans les années 50.Tout ici est propice à l’immortel, au solide. Le vinyle est le seul et unique produit renfermant le pouvoir nostalgique vers lequel on fini toujours par s’épancher en se disant qu’on a loupé quelque chose.
