This new print by Mark Ryden became available this morning. In an edition of 500 and measuring 33″ x 23 1/8″, the lithograph is a copy of a painting of the same name that will debut at Tomio Koyama Gallery in Tokyo, Japan this February.
Donald Wilson Roller is a well connected artist. For example, his artist statement was written by Robin Williams and the intro to the site by Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. Regardless of who his friends are, his work is interesting.

The LTV Squad are grown-up children, exploring as they call it “The forgotten underside of NYC.” Their website documents the places they have been, from subway tunnels to abandoned factories and hospitals. Discovery keeps one young.
This is great. See the detail shots here.
Images from the February issue of Vogue Paris that Carine Roitfeld dedicated entirely to her favorite model, Lara Stone, have finally hit the internet. The editorials shot by the likes of Hedi Slimane, Patrick Demarchelier, and Steven Klein have gotten mixed reviews, but there are no complaints here. Stone is once again smoking hot.
What a year. What a career.

We found this great post on this very cool site called the Strange Attractor. Check out British graffiti artist Paul Curtis, otherwise known as Moose. He creates art while blasting away at grit and grime from the walls of our filthy cities. Shot by filmmaker Doug Pray. Visit The Reverse Graffiti Project. This is an amazing video and what’s beautiful about it is how simple the idea was to create something this complex. Enjoy.
M.O.P., How About Some Hardcore, 1993
Bret Easton Ellis was one of the first authors I enjoyed upon becoming a teenager. I’m pretty sure it had something to do with the drugs, sex and wealth that were ever present in his books. The Informers however, was the only book I didn’t really get, as it wasn’t as fluid and I assumed it was about (or could only focus on) vampires. Years have passed since that introduction and now on the horizon is the big-screen adaptation of the tiny book. If this movie—Starring Winona Ryder, Mickey Rourke, Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, Amber Heard and the late Brad Renfro—ends up being anything like the trailer, you will leave it in typical Ellis fashion, yearning for a drink, a bump, and a fuck. Due out in May 2009
Currently on exhibit this month in Los Angeles at Applegate Gallery’s The Day of The Dead show are five new works by Jacob Arden McClure. The San Francisco-based artist creates beautiful, amazing collage-inspired paintings. He works in video and design as well. If you’re one of our LA readers check it out and let us know how it is in real life.
This is a really amusing book of illustrations that was published in 1965 by Edward Gorey. The whole book is scanned here for your viewing pleasure.
Check out this really great drawing by illustrator Minni Havas. And it really is a drawing.
