The West Coast portion of the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour concluded on Friday, September 21st with two successful events. The daytime event was held at Seattle skate shop, 35th North. Artists Dave Choe, Saber and N8 Van Dyke were there to meet fans, do some signing, and - of course - to paint. The final event was held in the evening at the Lo_Fi Performance Gallery where a good crowd gathered to watch the artists do their thing. The tour is scheduled to pick up again in October with two weeks of East Coast dates so check back soon for dates and locations.
Juxtapoz is proud to announce a very special August 2014 issue, featuring one of our all-time favorite musicians, creatives, and all around artistic personas, Madlib. For years, we have followed Madlib's eclectic career, from Quasimoto, Madvillain, Jaylib, Yesterday's New Quintet, the Beat Konducta series, and everything in between. One common thread has always been the unique and artistically-driven alter egos that Madlib has given to the world, and in this issue, we talk to the musician about his world of music and art.
