The Lost Art of Hand Lettering by
Gilded Beasts by Jessica Joslin
Sometimes I wish I could recreate my childhood pets, all the cats and gerbils I ever owned, the Chupacabra I lovingly named Mortimer and the Manticore with the face of Sean Connery. Jessica must have felt the same yearnings as me, prompting her to assemble these fantastical hybrid creatures from spare junk parts and findings. You can check out her gallery with tons more over at her website: jessicajoslin.

Corrugated Cardboard Art by Mark Langan
Doing commercial work as well as personal, Mark follows ancient Native American teachings by utilizing every part of the cardboard in his art, no surface, corner, edge, or shredded bit goes unused in his visually uncanny cardboard art (hey, is that Will Farrell as Uncle Sam?).
Sunset Silhouettes by Irving Lubis / Pink Sword
The setting of the sun evokes a wide barrage of emotions, from quiet contemplation to fanciful love, and bitter vengeance. Lubis captures all of these amidst the backdrop of one of the few constants in life: despite what ever happened to you during the day be it victory, heartache, or despair… the sun will still set.
Stemapunk Metal Dragon by Kreatworks
Dragons are badass. Science proves this. But you know what else is badass? Metal. Preferably the scrap variety that’s all jagged and filthy and possibly teeming with viruses… kind of like a dragon! Level up your dragon-slaying subset by purchasing this badass at etsy for only $11,500 USD. Hey, you’ve been looting dungeons right? That’s pocket change once you sell everything off at the nearby village.
The Mixtable by Jeff Skierka
Comprised of maple and walnut wood with a thin sheet of plexiglass covering it, the Mixtape Table is an homage to the audio Love Letter of the 80’s and the 90’s. Pour one out for your fallen friend the Mixtape: the only place in time where Bon Jovi, Candlebox, and Slayer converged for a nonstop party in your Honda Accord.
Uncanny Wood Sculptures by Randall Rosenthal
Yes, you are reading that sequence of words correctly: every single picture is of a single block of wood, hand-carved and painted in hyper-realistic fashion. Randall adds amazingly intricate nuance to each piece: his dollar bills look weathered and wrinkled while his wooden legal pad looked creased from frequent discarded ideas. His carvings look so realistic, you could probably take some of his wooden $100 bills and go use it to purchase that hovercraft you’ve always been wanting.
