EIZO medical imaging high precision displays for the examination and diagnosis of radiographs. Whereas craftsmen are showered with pin-up-calendars at the end of every year, this kind of present is less popular among medics. EIZO breaks this taboo. This pin-up calendar shows absolutely every detail. I love this idea and calender because it’s really sexy in a weird way, it shows the purity of women’s bodies in it’s purest form. I don’t know if this is NSFW, I mean it is as naked as a girl can possibly get sort of.
Death Masks are easily the most haunting mementos of the deceased. They have been in existence since the time of Tutankhamun, whose solid gold burial mask is an object of extreme beauty and superstition. Here, we present a bunch of casts that have preserved some of the most famous faces to have graced this planet.
Taken at the time of his autopsy and currently on display at the National Museum of Health and Medicine, Washington DC. In 2007, Dr. John Sotos studied his face and medical records and concluded that he suffered from a disease called Multiple Mucosal Neuroma Syndrome and had he not been assassinated, he would have died soon anyway.
We are loving the way UK photographer Mike Stimson has reinterpreted some of the most harrowing, joyful and memorable moments in history for his collection, with the help of LEGOS. I find some of them funny like the Viet Cong Execution both LEGOS in the photo have big smiles, which I don’t remember them smiling at all. You can see the entire photo set at Stimson’s flickr page here.

Creative photo series by Frederique Daubal, a talented French artist, features models wearing masks created out of pages from fashion magazines. According to the artist, “Hide and Seek” art project is a statement on identity, transformation and what it means to be French today. All I’m really getting out of it is a creepy way to scare the living shit out of my girlfriend around the house, thanks Frederique, ya freak.

U.K. artist Daniel Reese, or Mr. Brass Monki as he is known (22-years old), creates some of the absolute most amazing custom sneakers (trainers) I’ve ever seen. He takes his inspiration from pop culture trends and makes them a reality on your beloved Nikes. All of these can, or could at one point, be purchased and he also takes requests on future shoes.
Ray Sell has created a collection of vintage collages exploring the status perception and the gun-toting, cowboy-idolizing, tit-ogling American male psyche. Throughout movies, books, and the history of man, carring guns has been the symbol of power and authority. How many little kids do you see running around dressed as cowboys firing off fake guns. No one really ever wanted to be the Indians, because they used shitty sticks with pointy ends. Not shinny desert eagles.

Here is a funny and creative collection of good characters in bad games. While these good characters destroy every bad guy in their own video games if they were placed in the harsh environment of say Mortal Kombat, they wouldn’t stand a chance.
