bookstore

Alright B/D fans! Many of you have been asking us to get more shops in our stockist list so we thought it would be appropriate to have you suggest some good shops in your area that would be a good fit for B/D. Please suggest shops that carry art or design books or boutiques that carry other similar publications. It would be helpful if you could give us the shop name, website(if they have one), and location/phone number. If you want to go one step further run into your favorite bookstore/shop and demand that they carry Beautiful/Decay! You can have them email [email protected] to get wholesale info. With your help we’ll get the books in a quality shop near you!

I don’t know much about Jason Lahr’s work and I couldn’t find an artist statement online but anyone who makes artwork about death metal, Old Dirty Bastard and mixes in digital painting trickery is A-OK by me!

Awesome Video Of The Day: Procrastination

Procrastination from Johnny Kelly on Vimeo.

It’s Monday! Can’t waste anymore time sitting in front of the boob tube rotting your brain away watching Jersey Shore reruns! But before you kick it into high gear watch this investigative and exploratory hands-on gloves-off study into the practice of putting things ‘off”. Sometimes the only way to get something done is to do two dozen other things first.

Studio Visit: Sherin Guirguis

Sherin Guirguis

I first met Sherin Guirguis at USC while giving a talk about B/D. Sherin teaches in the design department so I assumed that she was primarily a graphic designer. Over the years we’ve run into each other here and there but never really visited each others studio. A few months back Sherin stopped by my studio to check out some work. When I went to return the favor I didn’t find stacks of design work but a studio full of both paintings and sculpture that were at once precise and technical while organic and fluid. ¬†Here are some shots from the studio visit.
