It was bound to happen. The world's largest soup company, Campbell's, is set to release (at Target no less) limited-edition Andy Warhol inspired soup cans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Warhol's infamous Campbell's soup can art. Warhols' seminal 32 Campbell's Soup Cans remains his most iconic work, and while you go to buy bulk product remanufactured as hip mass commercialism (Target), you can have a slice of... limited-editioned soup. Use only in earthquake emergencies.

Tiffany Bozic, cover of our January 2011 issue, just had a monograph released through Gingko Press, Drawn By Instinct. We were lucky enough to get a copy of it here in the office, and with 192 pages of Bozic's beautiful animal and sea life paintings, this is one of our favorite books of the year. On Tuesday September 4th at 6:00pm, Bozic will be giving a lecture and book signing at the San Francisco Public Library, in conjunction with the Cal Academy of Sciences (Bozic was the artist-in-residence there a few years back).

There are many of us who can't get the confidence and will to takeover a billboard and re-insert a bit of truth into the public consciousness, but then again, we can't all be Ron English.

A great surprise in the mail today, an advanced copy of Jason Jagel's collaborative book with Brian McMullen (published by McSweeney's), Hang Glider & Mud Mask. We are huge fans of Jagel's work, and if Daniel Clowes (September 2012 cover artist) says "Beautiful" in regards to a book, it has a good mark already.

Miss Van, who just opened a new exhibition at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, has also released a new print with London's Pictures on Walls, Virgen, that has the print shop saying, "Wow. Well this really came out better than we expected. What’s French for ooh la-la?" The print was made in an edition of 60, signed and numbered by the Toulouse-born, Barcelona-based artist, and 5-color screenprint using fluorescent ink and graphite.

There is no secret that we love the work of Southern California's Steven Harrington. We had a fantastic feature of his work in the magazine in October 2011, and now as he gets prepared to open his InsideOut exhibition at Known Gallery in two weeks, we take a look at the catalog for the show published by Nieves.

A Thursday in July calls for something a bit fun, a moment of summertime ease if you will. We just came across The Creative Gun by Mark Fitz and thought this could be a nice image for everyone to pass around. Good work from the Dublin, Ireland artist.
