Amazing Face-Paintings Transform Models Into The 2D Works Of Famous Artists
by Valeriya Kutsan
"My love for animals and nature has shaped my art since I first put pencil to paper, as has my love of mythology and mutation, both of which tell a story of dramatic, often violent change. There are gods who transform into beasts, or who were born with the heads of animals or a multitude of limbs, and there are gods who cursed humans to take on animal or plant forms as punishment, not to mention the mythological mutant beasts such as the Hydra or Cerberus. Mirroring those ancient myths in often grotesque ways we find in contemporary times that animals are being transformed against their will due to interactions with human pollutants; frogs with triplicate legs and blind eyes, cows with shriveled sets of legs growing out of their backs, two faced piglets being born on factory farms and radioactive fish rotting from the inside while still alive, plus so many more. I am interested in the power of these mutations both for their mythological remnants and their dire environmental implications "caitlin hackett.

Corset Styles from http://popantique.com
Written in the Bones. New comic, written by Christopher M. Jones & illustrated by Carey Pietsch.
I’m hoping to have printed copies of this at MOCCA, ABPCC, and TCAF this spring, and SPX in the fall! More info to come.
Me and Carey worked really hard on this comic; if you got something from it I’d love for you to reblog it, and maybe even buy a copy from Carey when she’s in town or even if she’s not. Thanks so much for reading.

Gale Force Wind to the Face by Tadao Cern
Vilnius, Lithuania photographer Tadao Cern brought participants into his studio, blew a gale force wind right into the center of their face, and then took pictures of them as they looked like mutants. Seriously, that had to be the most fun you could ever have with other helpless humans. The series is called Blow Job, and because of that name, we could not put it in the title or on the front page. But these are Cern’s Blow Jobs.
For people struggling with their New Year’s resolutions. [x]
I will eat more salad then :)
