A little sneak attack from our December 2012 cover artist, Conor Harrington, as he painted a new mural in Mexico City without the fanfare of festival or exhibition. While on vacation, the London-based artist took a day to leave something in the DF. As our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America said, "We hope to see you soon back in Latin lands, Mr. Harrington."

As you can probably tell, we have a mini-obsession with Mexico City-based Smithe these days. A mixture of nostalgic, vintage illustrative style and a bit of the grotesque and absurd make for a beautiful combination, and Smithe is one of the best at the moment. Here is a look at some new music posters and graphic illustrations the artist has completed recently.

The always good Mexico City-based Smithe just sent our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America images of his process creating his latest work, The Last Letter. The work was created on the occasion of "Slow Death", exhibition of various artists based on the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.

This past Spring, Mexico City hosted All City Canvas, one of the premier urban art festivals that has occurred over the past 12 months. With leading artists such as El Mac, Escif, Roa, Vhils, Interesni Kazki, Saner, Sego and others, ACC took historical districts and buildings in Mexico City and transformed them into beautiful mural displays that resonated throughout the world. Today, we show you the premiere documentary, All City Canvas: The Short Film.

Next Monday, October 29th, we are set to premier the documentary filmed during the work made for one of 2012's best street art festivals, All City Canvas Mexico City. We were lucky enough to be in Mexico City for the majority of the festival, and were able to see importrant and historical districts of the city transformed by some of the best talents in contemporary muralism and street art. As part of our teasing of the video, we look back at the work of Escif, Interesni Kazki, and ROA. More in the coming days...

A few months ago, Italian muralist, Ericailcane, was in Mexico City for his exhibition at FIFTY24MX Gallery, and was able to find time to paint this wall with fellow artist, Hitnes, in Tepito. A nice video was made documenting the mural, and our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America just passed it along to us. The wall was part of COMEX Series.

Jeronimo Lopez Ramirez, better known as Dr. Lakra (cover artist in August 2010), is a tattoo artist and illustrator who lives in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico, and occasionally can be found tattooing in different studios in Mexico City. Last week our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America had the opportunity to see the process when tattooing a piece of a gypsy with lyrics that read "SinYolanda." We love it.
