Our good friend and killer artist, Sacramento-based Skinner, just released a new book through Gingko Press and Zerofriends, Every Man Is My Enemy. Besides the great collection of works in the book, there is an incredible quote from Skinner's high school art teacher, Larry Alberts: "Skinner is a psychopathic psycho, that's the worst kind you know...". That is a compliment.

One of the best experiences this writer has ever had was spending time with George Lois at his Manhattan apartment in preparation for his December 2010 14-page feature in Juxtapoz. Not only was it an interview, history lesson, and New York Yankees debate, it was a personal discussion and advice session about capitalizing on potential. And hence Lois' new book, Damn Good Advice (For People With Talent!).

Last year, when Airan Kang opened her solo show, Light Reading, at Bryce Wolkowitz in NYC, it was one of our favorite shows of 2010. LED book installations? How could you go wrong. Last night, while on our iPad, we decided to look at Kang's LED book work once again.
