Surreal Photos of A Frozen Venice
Art director Robert Jahns has created a series of surrealistic photos of Venice by combining photos of Italy by Luis Manuel Osorio Fernando with photos of frozen lakes in Russia by Daniel Kordan. Robert Jahns wanted to show how the Venice Canal would look like if it was frozen by the winter.

- Oscar: I'm not talking to them. Bunch of do-gooders tellin' me what I can and can't set on fire!
Sorry BPRD fans, this is just a 3D model.

Magical Blue Crystals Cover an Entire Room by Roger Hiorns
Seizure is a large-scale installation by British artist Roger Hiorns in which he used unexpected materials to transform an everyday room into a giant piece of art. To create the site-specific installation, Hiorns covered the surface of the interior with plastic sheeting. He then poured more than 20,000 gallons of boiling copper sulphate solution into the abandoned space and let the liquid cool for three weeks. As the liquid cooled, these strange blue crystalline growths began to form, covering the walls, the floors, and the ceiling. The remaining liquid was drained and sent out for special chemical recycling.
So fucking crazy.
Ray Lamanna of the band Innerload sent in these beautiful shots of his new Manne Blackbird High Gloss, and its always nice to get a nice little reminder of how our favourite guitars start off - just simple chunks of wood, that skilled artisans lovingly bring to life and make capable of so much more.
Ray signed off his email to us with "And now ask me why I chose Manne guitars!!! Manne guitars forever!!!". We can’t really argue with him on this one, check out the Manne Guitars website to see loads more of these works of art.
