But then, you receive an email like this and it doesn't… Continue

When you first glance at Jonathan Bartlett's illustrations, they'll probably remind you of Norman Rockwell's classic paintings. They have that same sort of nostalgic feeling to them - the kind that makes you long for simpler times, when an ideal life seemed like it could exist. But look a little closer and you'll notice a darker theme running throughout. His… Continue

Just what does our stuff say about us? Do we secretly stash a pack of cigarettes in our purse, even though we've told everyone we've quit? Do we keep a weathered book in our bag, you know, the one that feels like a sweet security blanket?
Georgia-based photographer Jason Travis (aka J Trav on Flickr) answers those questions and more in his photo series… Continue

The body is a vessel for the soul. You could also say that it's just a bunch of cells holding a lot of water. It can be arousing, repulsing, inspiring. Our bodies express our emotions.

Of all the pieces that Banksy recently put up in Utah, I especially love this one spotted outside downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The clever stencil features a graffiti boy praying for forgiveness.
