Wisconsin based artist Annalynn Hammond seeks to question the dichotomies that play in the world of human ideas. She is best known for her unique hand-cut paper collages made from vintage textbooks and natural history magazines. Hammond combines different subject areas including, human and animal, body and soul, mind and machine, culture and nature, purity and sin, power and weakness, and many other antitheses.
Her surreal collages encourage the viewer to ask questions and think about the extremes within the pictures. The single images are undeniably someone else’s work, which were found, stolen, destroyed and appropriated. But a thing in itself has no meaning. The idea of a collage is to cut a special image region out and paste it into another picture, giving a new context to the assembled artwork.

For only the third time in their history, TIME Magazine goes without the famed red border, and opts for a 10th Anniversary, 9/11 silver border instead. Looks pretty great. In fact, that cover looks pretty great.
TIME Magazine, honoring Labor Day and the end of summer, have compiled the Top 10 Sweatiest Movies of all-time for us all to enjoy. We were surprised to see Dog Day Afternoon make it all the way to #8, but you got Rear Window, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, A Time to Kill (seriously, McConaughey is just sheening in this film), 12 Angry Men, Do the Right Thing (at #2), and at #1, Cool Hand Luke. Great film. Lots of sweaty dudes, and one shirtless, organic Newman.
We love George Lois. He is the original Mad Man and he did the best magazine covers in the history of the medium. Raymond especially loves him after spending time with Lois in his Manhattan apartment. Now, Lois is the cover subject of It’s Nice That, which we will now buy and cherish.
Nowness Magazine put this video together, where Dutch artists Lernert and Sander apply a year’s worth of makeup on Belgian supermodel Hannelore Knuts. That’s right, 365 layers of make-up in one video, one day, one supermodel. Its going to get thick in here.
If you need anymore reason to feel birthed by the wrong parents, or to fill like your wedding will never live up to the grandness of a Royal Wedding, LIFE Magazine almost made royalty look really damn cool with these pictures of classic Royals at weddings and wedding parties.
