We have been noticing more and more, "Why don't artists get to endorse things/have their own branded painting materials? Sure, there are spraycans, calendars, tee-shirts, and skate decks with art, but what about a brush set. October 2010 cover artist, Greg "Craola" Simkins has his brush set with Treckell Brushes, which previously sold out but is now back in stock. More after the jump . . .

Occasionally, we like to look at a few products here on Juxtapoz.com. and with a few Juxtapoz staffers picking up some bags from Vancouver-based Herschel Supply Co., we want to endorse the Herschel Supply Co. x Stussy backpack as a nice way to carry your laptop. Because we all have laptops. More looks after the jump . . .

We saw this print on Curated this morning, thought that it is the perfect print for a house, and that it was a rather clever depiction of the way people eat in America. Then note that the print was created by a British artist, Lucy Stevens, and you have to conclude she has a really good perception of American eating habits. More after the jump . . .
