Thank you to all the aspiring art students starting your journey as an artist. Thank you. Photographer Victoria Crayhon traveled to various abandoned movie theaters, drive-ins, and motel locations to create her own messages for casual travelers around town. Goodbye, au revoir, adieu, ciao, shalom, adios 2013! We look onward to what the 2014 year may bring to all of us because in life...nothing truly is what you had in mind.

Annemarie Busschers is an artist originally hailing from 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands who creates large-scale portrait paintings building different layers of materials, such as acrylic paint, pencil, pastel, epoxy, wood, wax, paper, and felt. Busschers doesn't merely strive to achieve photorealism in her work, but rather aims to capture the imperfections of the skin surface with all its irregularities. Isn't aging fun?

From the mind of Francesco Albano, what better way is there to close off the 2013 year than by visually taking in these fleshy, sagging, meat-baggy, flaccid sculptures of empty skin?! According to Albano, he views human skin as the boundary between internal and external identity, acting as a kind of "storage space." Albano's work is primarily made from wax, polyester, latex, iron, and other materials.

YO! Give me some mo' Park! Get it? Give me "Seung Mo Park"...Give me "some more Park"...No? Okay...well, besides my really stupid and lame attempt of making a joke, Park's newest work definitely is not and doesn't disappoint. Seung Mo Park is no stranger to EK, and we couldn't be more excited to see Park's newest sculptural pieces since his last feature back in April 2012, landing him a spot on our TOP 100 of 2012. Happy Holidays!

Michael Reedy picks up right where he left off in his previous feature back in January 2011 with a whole new anatomy lesson. I couldn't be happier than kid in a candy store...with comic books...and with the old school X-Men trading cards...and Icees...or Slurpees...and the day-old hotdogs still rotating in the heating oven that hasn't been cleaned in over a month.
