Preview: The Perfect Merge – Herakut

Looks like some preview images have come out for Herakut’s upcoming “The Perfect Merge” book. It incorporates some of the images from their outstanding “Dirty Laundry” show and definitely will be something that we will be adding to our collection. Preview images after the jump.

David Choe “Choegal” Signing

AM stopped by yesterday at GR2 for the signing and release of David Choe’s “Choegal” toy. Many fans braved the cold weather and some lined up for over an hour to get their figure as well the poster of the current Giant Robot magazine cover signed.  More photos after the jump.

Releases: Tim Biskup – Disco Tree Print

Tim Biskup recently posted on his blog about a print that Dance Right is releasing that is a variation on his “Tree of Life” print.  It’s a collaboration because MFG took the original image (seen below) and altered it (seen above).  Pretty affordable as prints go for $35.  Details after the jump.

Outsiders @ The New Art Gallery Walsall

We recently showed you the stunning mural done by Conor Harrington for the “Outsiders” show at The New Art Gallery Walsall. Well, here are some more photos of the other artwork for you to peruse. The show features Blu, David Choe, Miranda Donovan, Faile, Conor Harrington, Todd James a.k.a REAS (seen above), Paul Insect, Invader, Lucy McLauchlan, Antony Micallef, Polly Morgan, JR, Vhils, Jonathan Yeo, and Zevs and appears to have some different pieces when compared to the “Outsiders” show in New York.

Interviews: Scott Radke

What do you get when one of the biggest collectors of this genre, Mark Parker (Nike), fully funds an artist like Scott Radke to create a commission? A masterpiece! Check out this complex set of sculptures by Radke done over a 4 month period. Stunning… and not small either, the sculptures range from 21″ to 53″.  We talked to Scott a little bit about his process of working through this commission… Interview after the jump.

Joao Ruas – New Fables Artist

It was announced recently that Brazilian artist Joao Ruas has been pegged to replace James Jean as the new cover artist for the legendary comic book series Fables. In fact, he has already finished two covers (one seen above and one after the jump). We first noticed Ruas at the “Drawing Room” show curated by Audrey Kawasaki and ironically, his work at that time reminded us of Jean. Now that award winning artist Jean is moving on to the gallery circuit, Joao will will have […]

Conor Harrington @ The New Art Gallery Walsall

Conor Harrington recently posted up images of the monstrous 16 x 85 feet wall he painted for the “Outsiders” show at The New Art Gallery Walsall. This work, which took Conor only nine days to finish, includes images of soldiers, a bull, a duke, a bishop and a Blood and is aptly entitled “The Masters of the Universe.”  We don’t think it’s removable so we hope this is never painted over. More detailed photos after the jump.

Collector Focus: Amy Sol’s “Peach, Yoshi & Subcon the land of dreams”

One of the features that AM will be working on is what we will call the “Collector Focus” articles where we will take a closer look at certain peoples’ collections.  As many of our readers are collectors themselves, we thought it would be interesting to highlight some notable pieces in more detail for your enjoyment. First up is one of Amy Sol’s most recognizable pieces – “Peach, Yoshi & Subcon the land of dreams.” This amazing painting was exhibited at the “8-bit” show (video game themed) in […]

Dave Cooper x Danko Jones

Danko Jones – King Of Magazines from Bad Taste Records on Vimeo. Baby Tattooville alum Dave Cooper and animator Nick Cross recently teamed with Canadian rock band Danko Jones to produce a music video for their song “King of Magazines.” Oddly, this is exactly the sort of video you would expect if classic Cooper characters were animated – a bouncy lush world filled with his voluptuous and lascivious women strangely pulsating to the beat. Make sure you check out this interview by Hi-Fructose about the […]
