What is a Skate Crate? It's a retro-cool cruiser designed for fun and creative expression. It's for families and friends of all ages. It’s for those of us who wouldn’t be caught dead on one of those folding metal scooters. A Skate Crate is easier to ride than a skateboard, it’s even a perfect vehicle for mom and dad to keep up with the kids while they ride their bikes or skateboards. It's also the one piece of sporting equipment that you'll want to leave on display in your living room instead of stashing it in your garage! Support the kickstarter...

Trying to translate a color from the real world into a piece of art or a design can often be quite the challenge. Pushing those the CMYK or RGB sliders around will only get you so close and when is the last time you updated your Pantone set? That's why we were so excited to this; the SwatchMate Cube. As explained on their website, the idea is simple "Place the Cube onto a surface and it will instantly capture its color." Watch the SwatchMate Cube in action after the jump.

Swoon has always been one of our favorite artists, especially when it comes to her public art projects and site-specific works, and now she needs your/our help. This is the lowdown: Two years ago New Orleans Airlift and the artist Swoon launched the Kickstarter campaign that funded The Music Box, their prototype for an ongoing musical architecture project they call Dithyrambalina. Now, with the Music Box closed, they want to evolve the project: what was once going to be a single musical house designed by Swoon and brought to life by collaborating artists has turned into an even bigger dream—an evolving musical village created by many, many more hands, ideas, and influences.

André Karpov, with his swoony voice and epic shoulders, seems as though he stepped out of an Americana doc highlighting the brave broad range of the Mendocino coast children. The story begins: In the Pacific Northwest where the land meets the water, lived a cynical gull and an amiable otter.

Juxtapoz friend and recently featured Bay Area artist Joshua Hagler and fellow artist Maja Ruznic have set out on a journey through the Middle East and Europe, and have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a book collection. As the duo notes of the project "The project brings us through Europe as well as Jordan where we will be organizing visual storytelling workshops with Syrian refugees. Having both worked from personal experiences and with individuals struggling with psychological trauma in our past work, Drift becomes not only a search for home but an experiment to see what happens when the work is created in a state of transience and full involvement."

We just got a message from our good friend Greg 'Craola' Simkins, a past cover artist with the magazine, about a new Kickstarter project he just opened up (and its kicking ass by the way). The project is to help raise funds for Craola's first stop motion animated short film, "I'm Scared."
