Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
We really enjoyed this stop-motion, mural timelapse this morning. From what British street artist Jo Peel writes about her mural and subsequesnt video piece, what we have here is a "3 week painting condensed into a 3 minute animation. This is a short story told on a big wall at Village Underground in Shoreditch, London." Its quite good.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
We love it when we find kindered spirits of pop-culture debauchery and current affairs humor. Riding sharks, Obama on corgis, Olympic crashes, old WWF matches with Hulk Hogan, Conrad Ruiz jumps around cultural icons with watercolors on large format paper. He even created a San Francisco-themed "disasterpiece" that could be the world's biggest watercolor painting. Great works all around.
