We are huge fans of Philadelphia-based fine artist Alex Lukas, and his feature in the March 2011 issue was on of our favorites of that calendar year. Lukas, who has always had aa unique process with his work, just released an 8-color offset lithograph, made with Amanda D’Amico at The Borowsky Center for Publication Arts in Philadelphia. And, Lukas documented the making of the print, which illuminates some of Lukas' unique style and process.

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.

Think about it, kids remember what Mr T's cereal looked like, or the box of Cookie Crisp or even how incredible Smurf Berry Crunch tasted. Now there is a book that captures that spirit: The Great American Cereal Book. In a word, finally.
