When real people won't play with you, turn to people as blocks. People Blocks is a new collaboration between Case Studyo (the makers of fine limited quantity artist "objects")and artist Andy Rementer. The limited series features four unique wooden characters entirely made and painted by hand. The individual pieces are interchangeable, allowing them to be re-assembled and stacked to create custom characters or abstract sculptures.

We were already looking forward to John Tsombikos, AKA BORF, and his solo show at the Lazarides Rathbone space later in November in London, but now we want to get our hands on these Rothko's Modern Life prints that BORF just released with the Outsiders prior to the show. He is calling that show the BORF Show. Perfect.

This past weekend, our good friend and often-collaborator Alex Pardee opened a new show of an old favorite character, Bunnywith, at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. The concept drew a crowd: 100 $10 Bunnywith prints, all released at the opening, making for a 5-hour line outside the gallery.... we asked Mr. Pardee about the show, and this is what he told us...

Well, Holiday stockings just got a must-have. Abrams Books just released The Wes Anderson Collection, a new book by Matt Zoller Seitz with introduction by acclaimed author Michael Chabon. Seeing that many of us use Mr Anderson as one of the penultimate and original writers and directors of this generation, we will want this book.

The most epically baked vinyl stickers you will ever have the opportunity to doodle on have recently become available via the ultra-irie company cleverly named Highdeas. Currently, there are patterns such as tie-dye, reefer leaf, Mexican blanket and the soon to be released pizza label (toppings not included). Future designs depend on marijuana motivation, which is highly unpredictable and can depend on strains and intake amount.

From Exhibition A, who is selling this desired Wes Lang special edition box set: "Two years ago, Wes Lang completed his first artist-in-residence term at the Chateau Marmont, resulting in a suite of exceptional stationery drawings in the tradition of Martin Kippenberger. The series, entitled "Sittin' on a Rainbow" was presented as a one-night-only exhibition in the Howard Hughes penthouse and is one of his most sought-after bodies of work. Exhibition A has collaborated with Wes Lang to produce a selection of ten archival prints from the Chateau Marmont drawings in a limited edition box set of 100, to be officially released next week..."
