Michael Leon is one of our favorite artists, designers, graphic artists that we can think of, and our feature with him in the February 2011 issue was one of the best of the year. Leon just teamed up with Pendleton Woolen Mills, curated through Arkitip, for this fantastic limited edition blanket featuring Leon's clever California-as-skateboard graphic.

One of the artists we feel is making a great impact on the international art scene is Spanish artist Escif, and we present his work as the cover of our February 2011 Newsstand and Subscriber issues. The February issue also features a 26-page photo essay by Tod Seelie of the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Project that happened in Detroit this past October 2010. Full cover after the jump. . .

We had wanted to feature Michael Leon's "Dicks of the World" wall art piece here, but we figured that might be a bit jarring this early in the day. Bodega has teamed up with Barry McGee, Leon, Steve Harrington, Cody Hudson, and Hisham Bharoocha for a new series of large scale, eco-friendly, temporary indoor art. Pictures of the new collaborative pieces after the jump . . .

“Usually, skateboarding imagery means to communicate an I-Don’t-Care attitude yet, ironically, there is much hard labor, by designers and screenprinters, behind the creation and production of these images.” This quote is from an old program catalog we dug up in our offices of Grind: The Graphics and Culture of Skateboarding, exhibited way back in 1995 at the Huntington Beach Art Center.
