When I first picked this book up, I thought it was going to be writers and artists favorite recipes. It is not. The book is a melding of artist/creatives profiles and recipes the author, King Adz, wanted to publish. A simple mish-mash of everything.
We hate when we are down, and love when we are up. We have had some tough times these last few months. Anyway today I spoke to a very nice and helpful, tech I believe his name began with a S, I do not want to butcher it or be wrong. S, was really helpfull and hopefully we solved our performance issues. Thanks again Media Temple E>. TWBE
These are just some bullet points (my new favorite thing) from Shepard Fairey’s extensive blog post
I am fighting the AP to protect the rights of all artists, especially those with a desire to make art with social commentary.
the photograph is just a starting point.Â The illustration transforms itÂ aesthetically in its stylization and idealization, and the poster has an altogether different purpose than the photograph does.
I did not create the Obama poster for financial gain. The poster was created to promote Obama for president, and the revenue from poster sales was re-invested in more posters, flyers, stickers, etc..
“An 18-year-old has secretly painted a 60ft drawing of a phallus on the roof of his parents’ £1million mansion in Berkshire. It was there for a year before his parents found out. They say he’ll have to scrub it off when he gets back from travelling.”
Keep this show on your radar. McGee, Templeton, Pettibon. Curated by Aaron Rose. Bring this to NY.
“This exhibition serves to focus on the recent artistic output by three underground heroes from the worlds of skateboarding, graffiti and punk. Even though each of these artists has now firmly established themselves in the world of contemporary art, there are still common themes between them that hail back to their subcultural roots. It could be described primarily as an overriding sense of concern for and representation of the downtrodden, the outsider, the anti-hero. McGee’s sad, sullen faces and neon-colored geometric panels reflect the archetypal image of man overpowered by omnipresent media, Templeton’s portraits of suburban youths perfectly illustrate the harsh alienation of teenage life, while Pettibon’s drawings and paintings focus sharply on issues of personal/social unrest, life during war and the constant power struggle between a man and his destiny. The fact that this is the first time an exhibition has featured all three artists in such direct proximity to each other will be an interesting statement not only on each artists’ individual style, but also the unique similarities that run through all of their works.”

Media Temple helped crash our server today (Thanks Guys!) and the site will be slow until we can transfer everything over to a new host. Please bear with us during this time. We’ll still update like mad, but site access can be limited due to such horrible disappointing hosting.
