I first came across the amazing works of Ryan Kerrigan at Joshua Tree Music Festival. Before I even spent a moment in his little art shop at the fest, I had already admired his work earlier, as he designed the poster for the event. With a unique style that was inspired by the psychedelic rock posters of the 60s and 70s, the Berkeley-based aritst brings a colorful, trippy, unique element to all that he paints. From nature to mandalas to band flyers and music posters, everything Kerrigan creates appears to be dissected apart, yet seamlessly flowing together. [Read more…]

When an artist wants to incorporate loads of detail into his work, airbrush is not normally the preferred medium, but Chris Elliman doesn’t like to be typical. The Venice Beach artist, who goes by the name Daftpixel, likes to go beyond just 3D, inviting viewers into the 4th dimension with his hyper-detailed works. Each piece takes weeks to finish and even probably even longer for a viewer to notice all of the fine details. Although the internet can do no justice for what a full size version of his art is like, you can catch a tiny glimpse below. [Read more…]

That’s no moon… it’s a fire pit. For Christmas this year, Redditor Jennifer Allison (aka Bandia5309) got a gift that would warm the heart of any Star Wars fan. Her 84-year-old grandpa, Kenneth, took the round ends off a propane tank, connected them to form a sphere and cut out just the right bits to turn it into a very toasty version of the Death Star… including that pesky ventilation shaft.
