"The Longer You Last" skull-cast series from Hedi Xandt

Artist, graphic designer and all-around creative force Hedi Xandt has bumped up the price tag on this puzzle box by giving our good friend Pinhead from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser series a bit of the Midas touch.

This, truly, is one of the coolest concepts we’ve seen in the art world in a long minute. Olloclip, creators of mobile-photography technology, are putting on an art show in Orange County that is worth looking into  — perhaps with a magnifying glass.

The show’s concept was led by artist Axel Greittman‘s vision of a Death Metal-inspired Star Wars universe, although the exhibit additionally served as a first-look appearance for Vans and Santa Cruz [...]


British illustrator Jon Horner has laced out a series of Cliché skateboard decks, the theme of which applies Horner’s well known “Where’s Waldo” treatment to stars in skating culture. Pros like Joey Brezinski, JB Gillet and Sammy Winter hide cleverly in the graphics for the French decks, challenging you to find (and guess) all the possible characters. Boards measure in [...]

Thanks to the lovers of comics and the powers of the Internet, Ryan Humphrey‘s brainchild Bartkira became a massive art collaboration led by James Harvey — enough of a cult hit to eventually [...]
