Souther Salazar was born in 1978 in Hayward, CA. As a teenager in the early 1990’s, Salazar made photocopied cut-and-paste minicomics and ‘zines in his bedroom in rural Oakdale. After graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Salazar moved to Los Angeles where he currently lives and works. His artwork reinterprets the world, making it into a mythical place full of carnivals, lost cities, giant insects, dinosaurs, and a variety of other creatures. He mixes media, adding layers of storytelling to create his imagery, which can be explored for hours. Salazar exhibits his collages, paintings, drawings, and sculptures in dense and frenzied installations that encourage exploration and participation by the viewer. His work has been exhibited in galleries and Museums in cities around the world including: New York, Los Angeles, Portland, Tokyo, and São Paulo, Brazil. via
Baggelboy: Artist and illustrator. At the moment I live in Cambridge a small medieval city on the edge of the world. Originally from London I came here to study illustration and found the medieval life suited me.
The linocut pictures I make come from a mixture of the fun side of our darker life and the fairy tales that Grandma used to tell us. They are firmly rooted in the tradition of Medieval woodcuts and early book printing but with a little twist in the tail. Some of these pictures will become book illustrations and others are workings for larger prints and posters.
I know you’ve all been wondering, so I won’t keep you in the dark any longer. Below are some of my favorite scents and all are available in soap form.
But first a question: why can’t I find an intensely scented black licorice bath oil? Am I so weird that I’m the only one in the world who would want such a thing? Am I going to have to learn to make it myself. (Related query: can I cause an explosion this way?) Platinum star to anyone who can point me in a good direction :)

I’ve been in the market for new clothes lately, and I suspect you’re going to see that reflected in my picks this week. First up is the super-creative Poppy Clothing Creations.
ABOUT POPPY and HER WICKED WEAR

I have been sewing since I was 5 years old, Machine sewing since I was 10(so close to 20 years) I’ve taken fiber and design classes at a world renowned art school.
I love these dinner napkins and grocery bags made from upcycled vintage linens.
Once Again Recycled Designs: My name is Megan and I am an Interior Designer. The inspiration behind my creations is coming up with unique, functional designs that make life a little easier and saving the world…well sort of… I wanted to find a way for my designs to stand out and also to do my part by recycling. So I decided to take on the challenge of designing with 2nd hand finds at thrift stores, garage sales, and yes, even the garbage. “One mans trash is another mans treasure” I have discovered pillow cases make great bags, linens can be chopped up and sewn back together as baby blankets, pillows, coasters, placemats…the possibilities are virtually endless. I have two amazing children who also inspire me create fun kids stuff. So…will see how it goes…
