"If you don't know Shepard Fairey, you know Shepard Fairey. You have encountered an Obey Giant sticker before, I guarantee There's a chance that you, your son, or daughter is wearing an Obey shirt right now. Unless you were living under a rock in 2008, you saw an Obama "HOPE" poster, and it probably gave you pause, whether you voted for the man or now.

Andy Rementer told us that he saw insecurity "as a result of people being forced into living their lives too close to one another." That thought has really stuck with us throughout the year as we continue to adjust to the inter-connectedness of our digital world. Kristin Farr talks to Andy about his Medieval Minute comics, moving from drawing to painting, R. Curmb, Jean-Luc Godard, and his eclectic cast of characters, and more in this April, 2014 interview.

In the next couple of weeks, as 2014 comes to a close we are digging through the year's issues and sharing some of our favorite features.

The interview begins with possibly our favorite opening line this year, "Imagine a candy-coated land full of violence, gore and mischief where paint doesn't exist and everything is funny." Enjoy...

There was only one Duardo, and with such dash and panache, he was recognized by that one moniker. Known from coast to coast, from sun-up to sundown, Richard Duardo lived to celebrate art and those who make and inspire art. He was certainly at home at the galleries where I'd hear him revel in conversation, but his heart was in the streets and neighborhoods that guided his Chicano pride and call for justice and dignity.
