German photographer Patrick Hübschmann captures the unearthly feel of frozen trees in Winter in his series, Frost. The collection captures the moody feel of a dusky, frozen landscape.

Lars Henkel has received awards and recognition from around the world for his vintage inspired ink and digital illustrations with a ghostly and ethereal look. Each illustration seems to be a glimpse through the fog or a clue to a mysterious past. This mysterious quality keeps me coming back for more, hoping to find the answers, but knowing the mystery is the answer itself.
Northern Californian Rogelio Manzo’s translucent images see through the people he creates. Brushstrokes show ghostly movement while the paint simultaneously disfigures the images. Each layer, like years in time, leaves an indelible mark on the visage of that persona. This layering and slow, meaty disintegration, speaks to a commonality of humankind. The images are futuristic yet past tense and conjure a modern day Dorian Gray. We are given a glimpse of the future. In it, an undeniable beauty of the decay.

There’s nothing better than a scary commercial and this one straight from Japan is making the rounds…and scaring people like never before. So much so that the commercial comes with an advisory warning before screening, asking viewers to refrain from viewing if they have any mental or health concerns, or those that may see a […]
Architect Jose Davila’s new book There But Not reduces 100 iconic landmarks to their negative space. Since 2008 this Mexican architect has had a passion for photographing famous buildings, but he goes one step further with his art and cuts out the landmarks to leave ‘ghostly white silhouettes’ behind.

South London electro-pop band, The Chap, are unique and inventive. They are signed to Ghostly International, which issued their album Mega Breakfast in the US in July 2008 as their first official American release. These are the songs that have inspired them over the years.
‘I know it’s electronic music’, Brian Lindgren says, ‘but sometimes I feel like an old-timey traveling musician with an M-Audio Trigger Finger instead of a guitar’. As Mux Mool, Lindgren has been criss-crossing the country by himself for years, collecting records, loops, and samples, and rocking parties in towns both large and boondock-small. [from Ghostly]
