Legendary TV host Dick Clark and his wife are selling their home in Malibu for $3.5 million.

Based on the classic 60's…

There is no way for me to express how much I love illustrator and web designer Chris Gerringer's series titled I Know That Feel, Bro.

Swiss artist Andy Denzler depicts a hazy, abstract world in these oil on canvas paintings. The works are a collection of muted scenes, distorted by smears of brushstrokes and blurs of paint. Viewing his work is like trying to draw on a fuzzy memory or make sense of a low-resolution photograph on a computer screen.
The basic form of each subject is clear, but the details challenge the…Continue
