Good morning, dear readers. Remember that one nightmare you had when Book 2 was sold out online? Now you can wake up to a bright new day, because we restocked our online store. So feel free to head on over, and if you feel like it, purchase a copy of Book 2: What A Mess. Please keep in mind – only 1500 copies were printed… so grab one while it’s still available! We love you.
If you haven’t seen Pieter Hugo’s work before, get ready to be completely blown away. Unaltered, straightforward, and as raw as it gets, these images send shivers down my spine, and give me hope that I can still be captivated/inspired/amazed/appalled by a photograph.
Oh, the journeys you can go in books! Brian Dettmer shows no respect for Webster as he cuts this dictionary… into something far more awesome. But wait there’s more! Someone better yell timber, because here’s a forest’s worth of paper art from many great artists.
Here at B/D, we love it when you send us your work! Well this particular submission has the office divided – we can’t decide whether or not we love or hate these vibrant drawings from Kara Rane – I guess that’s what happens when your work is full of horses, little kids, sunsets, and sailboats. What do you think loyal B/D follower? Are you attracted to serene and harmonious imagery like this, or does cliched beauty disgust you…Give us your 2 cents!

Betlejuice must be hiding inside LA based artist Mark Licari, becuase his work is creepy-cool with lots of charisma. I’m seriously digging his sculptural pieces, especially the medicine cabinet. Go see his show up through February 14th at the Montery Museum of Art, or check him out at Honor Fraser Gallery.
Night Lights is an installation project by YesYesNo, who teamed up with The Church, Inside Out Productions and Electric Canvas, to transform Auckland Ferry Building into the fun-nest most interactive large scale installation project I’ve seen. From technical details of software making, to the audience jumping up and down, playing with this big installation project space, this video will leave a smile on your face and wishing you could have tried jumping and tapping as the folks on the video were.
