Xavier Antin is a recent grad of Royal College of Art currently based in London. His piece “Just in Time, or A Short History of Production” is a clever recycling of old technologies to make something new. A book printed through a printing chain made of four desktop printers using four different colors and technologies dated from 1880 to 1976. A production process that brings together small scale and large scale production, two sides of the same history. The final piece is a product created from a very strange offset printing process and doesn’t quite look how you would expect it to! Check out more pictures of “Just in Time” and other works by Xavier after the jump.

A nice short video of Barry McGee installing in São Paulo Brazil. Not often that you see a street artist filmed in such a delicate, dreamy, and romantic style.
when I was a kid I used to love to collect comic books. I would buy stacks of them and read them obsessively. I always wanted to start a comic book company but B/D was as close as I ever got. The best part about comic books are the covers so we slaved away on creating our own unique cover complete with our very own super hero, the Death Goat. He’s one bad motha who punishes all in his way with one blow to the head with his might crowbar. Get the Death Goat shirt and join the Cult Of Decay. Together we’ll punish all those in our way!
I love these ultra detailed, goopy portraits by Colin Chillag!
