As we noted on the site earlier this week, September 2013 cover artist Geoff McFetridge is to open a solo show, "Meditallucination" at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen on Friday, March 21st. The first round of previews centered around the Los Angeles-based artist's paitnings, and today we have a look at the fantastic drawings and studies McFetridge created around the show, which are arranged in an installation piece at the show. Take a look! And if you are feeling saucy, take a look at Geoff's board he handpainted as part of our Jux x Univ x Chandran Gallery benefit for Waves for Water.

(We like every film, "Darjeeling Limited" has a special place in our hearts as well). Somebody very clever, kogonada, who also created the awesome Kubrick "One-shot perspective" cut, has taken all the Wes Anderson films and shown the filmmakers knack for being "Centered."
