Since today Apple announced the iPhone 5, I think it’s an appropriate time to show you all Jonathan Keller Keller’s iPhone oil paintings. There not the type of oils paintings you might expect. First off, the paintings are temporary and captured in gif format. They’re created by using facial grease and grimy smudge marks to reflect light from his turned-off touchscreen. The results are both gross and awesome. More here.

Noteworthy Tumblr #7: Matchbook

I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits

Matchbook is two things I love rolled up in a single package – hot women in bikinis and books.

Noteworthy Tumblr #5: Table For One

Table For One is simple. It has a white background, photos of people eating alone, a title, and that’s about it. However, it elicits some strong feelings from people.

The tumblr didn’t evoke any negative emotions from me, maybe because I eat alone so often. I enjoy eating by myself. You can’t forget that just because you are at a table for one, it doesn’t mean you are alone.
