Chrissie Abbott’s work reminds me of something you’d see while rummaging through psychedelic album covers at a record store. I dig it! I love the mixture of black and white photography and colorful elements. She has done work for Little Boots, Nylon, and New York magazine.
Lee Misenheimer’s work uses very basic media– a lead pencil or ball point pen and off white paper– but he creates awesome illustrations with intense detail. He derives inspiration from Japanese art as well as organic textures, mushrooms, air, and wind. He has openly admitted to have repetitive line syndrome and after a long break from art, he’s back!
No trip to SF is complete without visiting St. Francis Fountain, the ultimate brunch spot. I ordered the wrong thing and my server was cool enough to bring me the right stuff without gruff. I felt like I should have given him some B/D shirts or a book but I didn’t have anything with me. I have no idea what his name was but someone reading this blog has to know him. Blonde dude with tats who looked like a surfer/skater type and was wearing a hat with the rim bent back ala Suicidal Tendencies style. If you know who he is email us on our contact page so I can send him a care package for the great service. Okay let’s head back south….
Longtime B/D friend Justin Blyth just released the Them-Thangs magazine, a massive folded poster featuring a gang of insane images, photography, and design. If you’re a fan of the popular blog then make sure to pick this up. Congrats Justin!
Brendan Cass has been busy turning out awesome new paintings since his studio visit in April. Nailing the beautiful, effulgent color he’s known for, Cass is pushing into some new terrain with night-scapes. It’s all headed to Paris for Brendan’s upcoming show, Infrared Scene, which opens September 4th at Galerie Zurcher.
Restrepo is one of the many stories to come out of our endless war with afghanistan. The movie spends one year in the most dangerous valley in Afghanistan where death is a daily threat. It’s brutally honest, sad, and poignant. Go see it at your local art house theater.
When I walk down the aisle someday, I don’t think I would mind my constricting, and stuffy wedding dress to blow up like a grenade… just like the installation of artist E.V. Day has put together. E.V. enjoys using delicate, fragile materials and transforming them into visions of war, sex, and violence. An act towards the exploding of sexual stereotypes.
