Some readers might find some of these amazing unique sculptures disturbing or
perhaps even sexist, but they reflect the artist's own history and wild
imagination. These are definitely on the edge.

There are tons photos of mostly beautiful women (That's what I'm interested in
anyway!) in Sol's Flickr photosets.

Shuai Mei's paintings are simply wonderful. I just wish her web site
had better organized links to her scanned images. I'd buy one of her

This is a nice set of paintings from the

Malanda is very talented, indeed. I wonder what the lost secrets are
This has got to be ultimate modern China Girl painting. This artist's
paintings are very diverse, but I'm not so crazy about horses.
There are so many wonderful Chinese artists. It's too bad their aren't
better sites display their work in better resolutions at least!

This is a fascinating animation from the great underground comix artist
Kim Deitch. At the end
of the animation, you can browse the "lost images", like the one below, from
the Fontaine Fables classics.
Here is a link to his

wonderful entry from the Webcomic Katrina Relief telethon.

I like these, because they are easy on the ole cerebral cortex.

Keitai Girl - Noriko Yamaguchi
"Yamaguchi uses her body to challenge present-day social mores by quite
literally camouflaging herself with materials such as red azuki beans,
golden thumbtacks and silvery cell phone keypads which become a constructed
second skin that acts as a meaning-laden barrier against the world beyond.."
