Fantastic Lurking

Excellent prints from Mr. Bill McRight.  Mad Max meets symmetry meets asymmetry meets The Dark Crystal meets linocuts meets creepy.

Jeremy Fish is one rad dude

If you don’t know already, Jeremy Fish is a seriously awesome artist homegrown in San Francisco. He’s the guy who will tell you straight, and the man who appreciates the odd things in life. You can see some of his amazing artwork on decks and prints here and here.

Jeremy Fish

Jeremy Fish was recently interviewed at Fecal Face, and his interview really gives you insight to his wild life and odd behavior. He’s a down to earth guy that you probably wouldn’t want to do wrong to. Definitely the style of a man grown in the bay area. Check out his amazing studio visit done by Fecal Face.

Now watch Jeremy Fish kill this mural, I wish this was inside of my room, home, office, face. (Strong language advisory, dudes!)

My dream team of magazine subscriptions

Yesterday Kristy created a nice little post about magazines she can’t throw away. While, I am the same way, and collect them as if they are first edition books, it got me thinking. Want to know what I was thinking? Overall, there are some really great magazines available, some of which come from other countries. If I had to put together a list of magazine subscriptions I would love to have, this would be the list.

Anorak Magazine – $45 for one year / 4 issues

Anorak Magazine

Anorak Magazine looks amazing, while it’s main goal it to be a childrens magazine, it appeals to us adults (but we really aren’t adults) because of it’s amazing illustrations. Every illustrator has a subscription and so should you. This magazine hails from The United Kingdom, and expect to pay about $45 for a one year subscription. But with only four issues per year, you can expect the illustrations will blow you out of the water. Subscribe to Anorak today

Baseline Magazine – $90 for one year / 4 issues

Baseline Magazine

Baseline Magazine is one for the grid enthusiasts. I seldom find an issue at the local Barnes and Noble, but when I do it’s a definite purchase. This magazine is over sized, has tons of great color, and sports amazing typography along with it’s beautiful grid based layout. A hefty price tag on this big guy, but with each issue being nearly a third of the size larger than your normal magazine, you’ll be sure to turn the cover pages into blankets. This magazine also hails from The United Kingdom. Subscribe to Baseline today

Proximity Magazine – $30 for one year / 3 issues

Proximity Magazine

Proximity Magazine showcases artists, homes, studios, and basically anything you can think of that pertains to art. Run by artists and printed by artists, this magazine is worth the purchase. Hailing from Chicago, this little guy is sure to not disappoint. The covers look beautiful and the articles look great. Proximity writers take tons of time making sure their content is in tip-top shape before going to print (hence the 3 issues per year). Subscribe to Proximity today

Uppercase Magazine – $65 for one year / 4 issues

Uppercase Magazine

Last but certain not least, Uppercase Magazine. This little guy sports some of the best illustrations I have seen in a long time. In fact, I am purchasing this magazine before any of the above. A beautiful Web site to match the beautiful magazine, I have to give all of Uppercase a serious applause. Their blog is great, and showcases some great finds, plus their book store contains items that you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. Hailing from our neighbors to the north (Canada), this is my number one pick out of this entire list. Do yourself a favor, and just browse the Web site. You’ll find that you will not only be inspired, but you’ll be pullin’ out that credit card faster than an old western draw. Subscribe to Uppercase today

Enjoy, and happy reading!

Nerds never die.

If you came to our house, you may be a bit put off by the plethora of stacks. There are about eight million places where magazines live on top of other magazines, racks of the stuff in every corner, every table end with a neat little pile of our favorite weeklies, monthlies, and special eds. I just can’t bear to see them go. I grab tear sheets for my winter / summer wardrobes, cut out silly ads that make me smile on a bad day and hey, what if I need that New Yorker article about phantom limb phenomenon in the next two years??? Here is one of my all time faves:

Wired Cover

I’m sorry, but the internet will never destroy my love for self serving, geeky, snark attack that comes in a nice heavy cover with Mr. Colbert on it. So, which mags do you all read, stash, love, hate, trade, sleep with?
