We are huge fans of the paintings of Tomoo Gokita, and loved having him in the magazine a few months back (March 2015 to be exact). His past show at Honor Fraser (hey, it's an Honor Fraser day!) was a standout in 2015, and it is good timing that our friends at Case Studyo are about to release the "A Bathing Beauty" bronze edition of Tomoo's painting of the same name. The black and white patinated bronzes measures 28cm. x 22cm in an edition of 8 and 4 AP’s. Packaged in a silkscreened wooden box with a certificate of authenticity signed and numbered by the artist. The edition will be released on June 4, 2015.

I'm a man of simplicity, and for every time someone asks me what I thought about the last episode of "Game of Thrones," and for every reference of Emilia Clarke that I don't understand, some genius who goes by "selvag" on Reddit created this Game of Thrones map in the Google Maps aesthetic that helps give a little context and sense to the uber popular fantasy show. It's only going for $21 on Etsy right now. I'm sure George R.R. Martin has his already.

For months now, we have been showing our readers the entries and finalists for the prestigious A’ Design Awards & Competition, the worlds’ largest and most diffused international design awards. What has been brilliant for us is that the more we have engaged with the Design community in our print edition each month, we have seen all sorts of interesting ideas and projects come out of the A' Design Awards & Competition. Today, the A’ Design Awards announced the results of the 2014 - 2015 design competition: There are 836 Winners from 83 countries in 89 different design disciplines!

The LA Art Book Fair, presented by the good people of Printed Matter, is one of our favorite art events of the year and a chance for us to check the best in independent publishing, whether it be vintage books, new books, zines, collectibles, and other periodicals. Juxtapoz again will have a booth this year, and along with new mags, old mags, and books, we will release two new zines under the Juxtapoz Editions imprint: Sage Vaughn "Vanitas" and Kristin Farr "Magic Hecksagons."
