Filson: A Factory Tour

Design // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
In our October issue, out now on newsstands, we documented our recent trip to the Filson Factory in Seattle, where the great team took us around the factory floor and showed us how their heritage and artisan bags are constructed. We also got some sneak peeks into their new Seattle Life collection, some classic apparel and Filson advertising, and of course, some of the most beautifully made luggage and day bags being created today. Or 100 years ago. 

The Work of Lu Cong

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
We came across some beautiful works by fine artist Lu Cong this morning, and although the majority of the work focues on the faces of the subject, this one piece of the floating women caught our attention the most. Cong was born in Shanghai in 1978, and he moved to the US when he was 11, and interestingly, graduated from the University of Iowa with degrees in Biology and Art in 2000.

Jon Fox Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Jon Fox was born in the UK and currently lives and works on the south coast near Bournemouth. He studied Fine Art Painting at the University of Brighton where he began exhibiting work in local galleries on a regular basis and taking commissions while still at university. His work often addresses the conflict of emotion: 'heart against head.' Many of his characters occupy a world of tension and turmoil battling with their own significance while the looming presence of a larger restless energy is at work around them.

Short Film: Claire Danes for Audi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Usually car ads have some sort of post rain-soaked highway in California and a evening drive by a comfortable man in a casual suit feeling the power of his German engineered car. Or there are 300 people in colorful tracksuits dancing around some fuel-efficient vehicle. Both are the norm. So we appreciate a full-on, quirky, in character Claire Danes advert for the new Audi TDI clean diesel. Advertising as art. ...

Brilliant Patterns by Matt Lyon

Illustration // Monday, September 16, 2013
Based in London, UK, Matt Lyon is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator whose eclectic work stems from incessant doodling and is often laced with wild colors, shapes, and patterns that pop from the screen with vitality and a sense of play.

The Getty Station is a new on site-specific installation program that will exist in the already heavily art-saturated area of Chelsea. For the inaugural exhibition, Michael Shvo and Paul Kasmin Gallery present “Sheep Staion” featuring the work of late artist François-Xavier Lalanne.
