Gino & The Garlic Myth

Illustration // Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Gino & The Garlic Myth is a creative collaboration between dutch artists Gino Hoiting and Daniel Roozendaal. This amazing animation, with its vintage Dadaist feel, perfectly expresses their preference in creating raw, analog imagery. The weird humor of their everyday lives plays a major role in the final product of the projects they complete together.

Pin Art Portraits by Philip Karlberg

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 15, 2012
We don't think we have seen anything quite like these Pin Art portraits by Philip Karlberg (so close to Carlsberg, we can almost taste it), and we are very surprised that we knew this was Jackie O immediately (thanks middle school Rage Against the Machine!). Karlberg takes hundreds of painted pins and arranges them to portray famous icons, and uses the eyewear to seal the deal. This takes a bit of time...

Tom Sachs "SPACE PROGRAM: MARS" @ Park Avenue Armory, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Tom Sachs' newest exhibition at first glance might seem like a glorified space camp that someone is trying to call art, but understanding Sachs' style and mentality we realized that this is in an incredible exhibition not to be missed. Sachs' will be occupying the 55,000 square foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall creating an immersive installation that is reminiscent of the Apollo Program but will be focused around Mars.

Derek Nobbs' Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Derek Nobbs was born in 1980 and currently lives, creates and explores in the Pacific Northwest.  His nostalgic, adventure based tales are made on a heavyweight hot-press paper, and he gives them an aged look using various common things: coffee, tea, whiskey, tobacco and tears. Much like  traditional flash tattoo's and the stories told by old fisherman, Nobb's work appears to be filled with tales of life, love, loss and death.
