If you want to feel like a rainbow threw up on your bed, I’ve got the sheets for you! The lollipop (and satisfied smile) really makes this image.

This is a real book. Can you image, even in your wildest dreams, a more romantic title? Nevermind the fact that he appears to be strangling her.

Wow. Ads have come a long way. Now they only imply that people hate the sight of you.

Here’s something sweet (in the SWS way) for Mother’s Day. Cristina Burns makes eye catching assemblages, populated with plenty of skulls, flowers and candy.

Bones, brains, sugar, pills, kitschy creatures…

The sadness amidst soft pastel colors is striking…it’s like a cotton candy machine spinning ethereal structures of sugar and pain.

I’ve posted about Megan Petasky before. This video of hers is guaranteed to be one of the creepiest cartoons you see today (assuming you watch a lot. You watch a lot, right?).
