Who needs to speak when you got the Wordboner t-shirts?

I’m the happy owner of a piece of Bebaroque conversation-starter clothing: yellow hosiery with one leg decorated with black peacock feathers. People STARE, I mean STARE, yes, when I wear them, and if they dare to come up to me, they ask me if it was painful to have my leg tattooed. Well no, and would the yellow colour of my skin be due to the amount of carrots I consume or do you think it’s a really bad self-tanner?? Nevermind, I love almost everything Bebaroque creates and I have to get some of these designs.
I’m staying in the body parts/art theme… Jessica Harrison makes some pretty gory figurines and sculptures. These aren’t for the fainthearted…
I love these mysterious owl creatures by Darren Henderson. They look like they are making secret plans or have a really awesome secret that they can’t tell you. Well, they can, but then they would have to kill you.
I’ve always had a bit of a thing for anatomy, I guess it started when I was at art school learning to look at the human body with new eyes. I started to wonder how everything worked, which muscles was were? why did the shoulder-blade move out when you moved your arm… etc.
So I’ve been reading anatomy books, the darn thing is that they are seriously expensive, so all I have is the Sobotta, which is nowhere as cool at “Grays Anatomy” (and here I’m not referring to the TV show). And I’ve noticed that I always stop to look if it has a bit to do with body parts… Mmmm, skulls, hearts and hands!!
Norwegian Kristoffer Myskja makes some absolutely awesome art pieces that makes my geek-o-meter freak out, so many gears, gyros and mechanics made in brass that I almost can’t take it. I can’t even think about that he might’ve looked something like this building them, cause then I think my brain would melt! But do yourself a favor and go look at the videos of the pieces, they are amazing!
Smoking Machine – the mechanical equation of me
Rule 30 – It punches a pattern of holes into a roll of paper, slow but beautiful
The machine that uses a thousand years to shut itself down
The sound of… Cotton, coffee and gold – it even sounds sort of pretty
