Some days it feels like the only things we hear are negative: from a boss wondering why that impossibly big task isn’t done, to a friend telling you about the spinach you’ve had in your teeth for an hour… or even your old printer whining as it eats the tenth piece of paper.
Do you long for the cool air of a dense forest, the dusty path of a long hiking trail or the warm experience of cooking over an evening campfire? If so, then look no further than Campfire Cologne.

When artist David Jablow found a vintage 60′s notepad called Do It Yourself Doodler, complete with what appeared to be the unfinished drawing of a nude woman on each page, he couldn’t help but dive in and complete each one with hilarious results. Like a fantastic Mad Libs for artists, the suggestively drawn woman, missing her breasts and butt, was obviously intended for more naughty vintage purposes… but Jablow had a better idea. He completed each page of the book with scenes straight out of the pulp fiction pages of the past, including bar room brawls, fist fighting sea divers and Hollywood starlets. He’s also done some which look more modern, creating one piece in a decidedly Japanese manga style; another with a sweet ninja theme. [Read more...]
Like a mashup between classic statues of Greek Olympians and their modern day counterparts, the collages of Jen Ullrich are seriously clever and plenty ridiculous too. Ullrich takes photographs of classic statues and pastes elements of them over magazine clippings of athletes in action – in doing so, he matches up their figures with a deft mastery almost equal to that of his subjects. Because of his smart choice to cover the modern day figures faces, his subjects get a classic treatment which obscures their identity while giving them a decidedly stoney demeanor. [Read more...]

That’s the crazy logic behind many of the creations you’ll find here, defying any sense of reality or possibility of real use. From the warped mind of the late french artist Jacques Carelman, the objects you see here began with his 1969 Catalogue d’Objets Introuvables (Catalog of Impossible Objects) which emulated and parodied the style of the mail order catalog in his own bizarre fashion. In creating his whimsical objects he provided an entertaining commentary on modern society [Read more...]
