Nick Walker in the Guardian:
“This has been a crazy year for me. First I was on the front cover of a Sunday supplement with the heading ‘Move Over Banksy’, which can’t have gone down that well. Then things really blew up. In February, my show in Los Angeles sold out overnight and people were phoning from all over the world trying to get a piece. While that was going on, people were ringing me up from London saying: ‘You’ll never guess what!’ A work of mine called Moona Lisa had gone for £54,000 – 10 times the estimate – at the first-ever urban art auction at Bonhams. And when I got back from LA, everything had sold out on my website as well.”

The latest copy of Newsweek hit the newsstands last week. The issue has an eye-catching cover, featuring Obama amongst handdrawn craziness. Illustrated by Lorenzo Petrantoni, it is safe to say that this is the best Newsweek cover I have ever seen.

You’re done playing with all your toys, so you turn to us for relief. Star Wars hand puppets, it’s an oldie but what else are you doing today anyway?
Parisian artist Robin Soulier‘s puddle photography is outstanding. Using the reflection of puddles to capture his subject matter, Robin juxtaposes trash and street debris among buildings and landscapes. Very cool work. via js
