I love everything about Fab Ciraolo’s artwork: the hues, warped placement, and his imagination. In particular, I dig the way he magically portrays characters and pop icons (Ms. Monroe, The Exorcist, Dorothy, Mother Teresa, Edward Scissor Hands and Aaliyah, to name a few). It’s seductive, you can’t ignore it.
My best friend tells me all the time she wants to be a rare and mystical unicorn. Thanks to SAZAC, this plush Japanese Unicorn Kigurumi Onesie, with its furry pink mane and tail, can make her dreams come true.
Nebraskan-born Celeste Pille has put our kiddy-imaginations to rest, drawing images of popular cartoon characters appearing adult-like and all grown up! Those who watched Rug Rats, Hey Arnold, Pepper Ann and The Magic School Bus in the 90’s will understand.
On first peak, I thought I was looking at pink hanging flesh accompanied by dripping blood. It’s good to know that the main ingredient in Erno-Erik Raitanen’s ‘All You Can Eat’ artwork is pure cotton candy (‘fairy floss’ for us Aussies).
LA native CANTSTOPGOODBOY is a self-taught, upcoming artist who already has Sony, TOMS Shoes, Absolute Vodka and Coachella client bragging rights under his belt.

Leaves. Love hearts. Smiley faces. I’m easily impressed when it comes to creative baristas etching cute decorations on top of my morning latte. But Taiwanese coffee shop, Let’s Café, certainly takes the cake by printing their customers’ own photos onto ordered coffees. It’s all thanks to an elite coffee machine that uses cocoa powder, latte […]
Most baby and children’s portraits hanging on family walls tend to look run of the mill. California-based Anna Eftimie, on the other hand, brings said photography products to life. Check out her award-winning Blackboard Adventures photo series. She shoots little bubs on chalkboards, while her husband chalks out the creative scenarios.
Bondi Junction’s beloved Eastern Hotel has a new Mexican hot spot gracing its top floor: El Topo Roof Top Bar. With over 100 Mexican spirits in stock, patrons have access to the largest range of mezcals, sotols and tequilas in Australia. Plus, there’s lip-smacking Wahacan fare to indulge in, too. I was lucky to attend […]
Mmm! I’m loving the caffeine fixes at Antidote, just as much as I fancy their bakery treats and chilled green teas. What’s more, the place is aesthetically pleasing. There’s no impersonal counter when it’s ordering time and the baristas greet you by name and approach you when your order is ready. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill, […]
As a nail-enthusiast myself, I’ve seen a considerable share of artsy creations. Suffice to say, this turf on fingernails diorama by Alice Bartlett is one creation that takes the cake for uniqueness.
DeviantArt’s Alessandro Conti has unveiled Inhuman Disney Anatomy, a very imaginative illustration series exploring our favourite Disney characters and their insides. I bet you’re all wondering why Goofy is the only one with a wiener, huh?
New York-based Japanese artist Yuken Teruya has put eating at Mickey Dee’s to good use. He’s renowned for making stunning paper forests out of throwaway objects. This time, he’s magically turned McDonald’s takeaway food bags into works of art. Check out his stunning handcrafted miniature tree.
Easter may have come and gone in a flash, but you don’t have to stop your eggcellent spirit. Just grab this nifty egg nest paperclip organiser and your desk will be the talk of the office. If it’s not, the paperclips will still flock to it.
Mummy and daddy told us to try and draw inside colouring book lines while growing up. Rowena Martinich’s parents must have been an exception. The Melbourne-based artist is an abstract expressionist with a difference, blurring Greenbergian formalism with edgy street art practices. She has a love affair with making her mark known in everyday public […]
Us Sydney-folk love to drink alcoholic beverages out of teapots (The World Bar). This secret hangout tucked away at the end of Melbourne CBD’s Croft Alley prefers to serve drinking in an even more outlandish way: syringes! Yes, you are reading correct. The Croft Institute is all for innovation and yummy shots are served in […]
