I met the artist Sarah Cain in her studio in Los Angeles where she’s completing work for upcoming museum shows—at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and at the Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh—plus a solo show at Honor Fraser gallery in LA. We had a rambling conversation about what inspires her work, how she manages her career and what it’s like to be a woman in the art world, all the while nibbling on fresh raspberries and dark chocolate with sea salt. It was just as incredible as it sounds.

Despite all the visual distractions of the digital age, one low-tech form of mass communication remains as popular as ever: the lost pet poster.

For more than a decade, artist and animal lover Ian Phillips collected lost and found pet posters from around the world.

Valencia, Spain-based artist Escif has always been one of our favorite artists who works mostly in street art. His gallery show at POW in London a few years back led us to a great cover story with the artist in February 2011. Now, we want to help Escif publish his new book, Elsewhere, which he is trying to put out himself with the help of crowdsource funding. The book will be printed a a first edition of 1000 copies, hard cover, 300 PAGES, with different textures and stocks throughout. Let's make this happen.
