Uno Moralez is a mystery. No, fuck that, Uno Morlalez is a magician. No, that's not right either. Uno Moralez must be an imposter! There is little public information about artist Uno Moralez. His outdated Livejournal is basically illegible, unless you can read Cyrillic or have a translating robot better than Google, his name apparently isn't even Uno Moralez, and (GASP!) he has no Facebook page.

LA based painter Steven Daily's imagination runs both deep and dark. So dark, in fact, that I have always been pretty convinced that he must have sold his soul to some dark demon from his childhood in exchange for the ability to blend his paint the way he does!

One of the best things about collaborating and becoming friends with other artists that I love is what kind of jewels I can wrench out of them by trading art for art.

Among all of the random filing cabinets labeled anywhere from "reference pics of ewoks" to my "Amazon wish list" that are cluttered inside of my brain, there's a specific cabinet labeled "Artists Who I Will Always Look Up To For The Rest of My Life No Matter What". Inside that cabinet is a small list of names, and Gris Grimly is at the top.

Whenever I rant to people who haven't seen his art, the way I always describe the work of Bay Area illustrator Shawn G.

I was up in Portland a few months ago eating donuts and playing dress up at Upper Playground when I crossed paths with an artist named Hill Hudson who, after talking for a few minutes, handed me a sticker that was cooler than any sticker I had seen since the Zorlac and Santa Cruz skateboard days. When I say cool, however, I mean cool as in "disgusting."

hotographer (and super human) Clay Enos is featured in this month's special Halloween issue, but even if we devoted the entire magazine to his art, photographs and stories, it wouldn't be enough.

Detroit native slash critter-lover slash Sculptor slash illustrator slash great nerdy father Chris Ryniak is a man of few words. When I recently asked him about his art career, he simply said this...

Two years ago, artist Dave Correia and I, along with filmmaker Stephen Reedy, drove across the USA over the course of a month, stopping in various towns, encouraging anyone and everyone to draw by offering to trade "a sketch for a sketch"

I have been drawn to Allison Sommers' work since the moment I laid eyes on it simply because I had never seen anything like it before. I still haven't. Nothing screams juxtaposition more than Allison's seamless blend of soft and disgusting.
