Heidi Gardner is a lesson in not judging a book by its cover. One would never guess that this beautiful, petite, blonde woman is the brains and the brawn behind the jewelry line Creature Couture, a line of intricate pieces that revel in all that is cadeverous and eerie. Gardner has been able to translate her penchant for skulls, whether they be human or animal, and other parts of the skeleton into hauntingly beautiful pieces. Want one of your own? You can fill out a simple form on her website and Gardner herself will design a “creature” based off of your answers. Her pieces have been featured in magazines globally and have been bringing beauty to people’s dark sides, including Madonna’s, since 2011.
William Binnie is a multi-talented Texas-based artist who is not afraid to explore numerous mediums to create his often-macabre pieces. His oil paintings are flawless. The meticulous detail in each piece makes the viewer feel as though they have been transported back in time. (Raw meat never looked so noble). Binnie’s bleach on denim pieces are hauntingly beautiful, and his drawings are intricate and complicated, especially a series of cobwebs with apocalyptic sayings seamlessly woven into them. For an artist with as much talent as William Binnie clearly has, one can only look forward to the future.

Take a moment, peruse her website, and prepare to get transported by Tessa Beligue’s awesome work.

Danny Musengo is using his prophetic words as art, all over Brooklyn’s Williamsburg. Simple black type on a white background never had such an effect. His short musings tend to tug at the heartstrings. I like to think of his posters as nuggets of inspiration that help get you through the day. Musengo’s tumblr page contains more of his philosophies, along with random photos and captions.
Going against the grain of more traditional tin designs and bottle labels, Zoe olive oil employed a young, then unknown, artist to create the patterns for its signature brand. Then Zoe for Kids was born and the company reached out to another relatively unknown graphic artist to design the tin. Zoe hope to find more artists who are willing to create patterns for other products. If you’re up to the challenge, contact them for more details.
