Releases: Pavement Licker 2003 – 2017 Book

Back in early 2000’s, when the internet was young, art blogs had not been invented and social networks weren’t even a concept yet. At this time, graphic artist James-Lee Duffy and writer Josh Jones came up with an idea to create a platform for alternative artists and writers to be published. Art zine Pavement Licker was first released in 2003 and it was a chance for young artists to share their vision with a wide audience interested in such works. The list of contributors included countless young, unpublished artists to internationally-known […]
