“Puppies With Guns” has been a side project for several years. It started out as a joke between two bored roommates that had an incredibly cute new dog, and a pair of awesome Glocks. It turned out to be badass and everyone else wanted their dog’s photo with some sort of artillery. Then designer start matching the dogs to firearms that match their personality or heritage and bridge the gap between two total extremes.

Milky PinUps, a retro pin-up calendar project by London based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz of AurumLight Studio is a set of high speed photographs of model wearing milk instead of traditional clothing. The artist explains that the project was, “Made with milk, frozen in time, and morphed into high fashion.” These “liquid illustrations” were inspired by the vintage pin-up illustrations from the 40’s and 50’s of artists Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargas, and more which were featured on Brown & Bigelow calendars. None of those photos are illustrated, all those gorgeous outfits are the result of layering hundreds of individual photographs which were taken with milk splashed across bodies. If you’re interested in learning how it’s done by Wieczorkiewicz himself, check Wieczorkiewicz’s milky pinup blog where you can also find his milk workshop information.

The animals were photographed in a comfortable studio for no more than five minutes at a time and with plenty of treats.
