Noah Frase's frenetic illustrations are cluttered with linework as if he is racing himself to get as much on the page as possible. These dense, textured images of places and figures express a kind of figurative debris, the material output of human lives clashing in history and time. Frase received a BFA from RISD in 2011.

The Berlin artist duo, Low Bros with assistance fromTobias Wüstefeld, have made this shredding video with animation entitled “Menace Beach” in homage to the birth of skateboarding. “Instead of re-hashing the past, the Low Bros are trying to re-capture the attitude and feeling of those early skate-innovators together through a multi-media film that references the different eras and influences of skate history.” Skaters on old school boards with futuristic masks; a good watch to get you motivated to hit your board.

Aki Miyajima is an artist and illustrator living in Tokyo, Japan with a light and delicate feminine style. Her series of drawn ladies merging with flaura, fauna and a touch of the animal kingdom is by far her most minimal and simple work, but the intricacy and palette in these works are beautiful and effective.

The sun now completely covered by grey clouds has given us some much desired cool down time on our third day here in Atlanta for the Living Walls Conference. After last nights block party in the Edgewood neighborhood where a large crowd congregated in front of Roti’s wall for a hazy late night of celebration in the streets, we wouldn’t be surprised if everyone had a more sluggish start than usual today.
