A new piece from Isaac Cordal who just published a 256-page book entitled Cement Eclipses: Small Interventions in the Big City, a book that chronicles the misadventures of his tiny cement men on the streets of London. See more of his work documented over at Unurth.
Handschrift is an experimental typeface by designer José Ernesto Rodriguez out of Berlin who created each letterform with a single photocopy of his hands. (via typegoodness)

I am thrilled to share with you the work of sculptor Michael Beitz who makes some of the most bizarre and humorous sculptures I’ve seen in quite some time by subverting familiar forms of anatomy, nature, and even furniture. Beitz is currently at the John Michael Kohler Art Center Residency in Kohler, Wisconsin and will join artist Larry Bob Phillips in July for a project at Recess Space in New York. He is also planning to have a piece in the Smack Mellon Emerging Artists show in July. On his website, check out his Folding House, a structure erected entirely with a bicycle pedal-powered device.

Great capture from Martin Wunderwald.
I’m enjoying the these beautifully painted anatomical nesting dolls from Stuntkid illustrator Jason Levesque. (via drawn!)
I’m really enjoying the sculptural works of Brooklyn artist Matthew Day Jackson that confronts ideas of death and mortality. Images are linked to their sources. (via lustik — how do I get in touch with you? can you please shoot me an email?)
Some wonderful paper works by Australian artist Miso (Stanislava Pinchuk) who pastes these large pieces around the streets of Melbourne. Via her web site:
Miso is really taken with the idea of art, and especially street art, as being something which binds us as a community. It functions in a very old fashioned way, in that it becomes a way of telling and sharing stories and images, embedding them within the city. Like folk art, it comes to have a very particular, practical function. It brings us together as makers, viewers and consumers, finding new pieces and exploring the possibilities of our cities.

Italian photographer Mario Zanaria has some striking contact sheets (nsfw) of his models. Amazing. (via paul octavious)
