All My Friends Are Made Of Paper

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 10, 2007
Wooster Collective has just released a new book from their Wooster on Paper project featuring the work (and essays by) the Danish artist Armsrock. Living in Germany for the last few years, Armsrock has developed a style of rough sketching the people around him, friends and strangers alike, to capture the motion of their everyday lives. Rather than compose a scene he lets the city compose for him with its chaotic dance of the day-to-day. The book, All My Friends Are Made of Paper, is a limited edition of 2000 with a hand-screenprinted soft cover and an introduction by Swoon. Scrape the change out of the couch cushions and treat yourself to some Armsrock stylings. Full details here, {moscomment}

Collect Raindrops by Nikki McClure

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2007
Collect Raindrops by Nikki McClure celebrates the important things, the seemingly small things we cherish in life: the change of seasons, the first snow drop, a sun-crisped shirt, the feel of rain, the scent of pine, the sweetness of fruit right off the vine. Nikki's delicate, organic images convey an optimism and calm that reflect the joys and comforts of community, sustenance, and parenting. Punctuated by plain words, her work encourages one to slow down and savor a moment, a taste, a touch, a smell; to look up at the stars to dream; to find strength and happiness in the simple.

Streets 2k7

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 16, 2007
Streets 2k7 is a public art project that coincided with the Raritan River Art Walk in New Brunswick, New Jersey on May 12-13, 2007. Albus Cavus, an active local art collective worked with the New Brunswick Arts Council on the Art Walk - a two mile long path located on the waterfront in New Brunswick. Local residents and artists transformed a neglected path of the city into an extraordinary outdoor gallery of public art. This project is part of a larger experiment in an innovative approach to the revitalization of neglected public space. They envision art to be the driving force in changing an abandoned bike path into a space that will become widely used by the community for social interaction and recreational purposes. Everyone was invited to participate in the event as artists, volunteers, or audience. In the end, more than 150 artists came together to paint the retaining wall along the waterfront bike path.

Nick Daum's Dordles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 09, 2007
Nik Daum has manifested another collection of weird and funny illustrations. Dordles (not quite drawings/not quite doodles) are the spiritual successor to his famous office sketches (both collections are published books.) "Each mark of lacerating genius is thoughtfully recorded in the margins of advertising briefs, discarded printouts, or the company stationary. The turds are then scanned, colored, composed and polished on computer. Hopefully, this preserves the playfulness and stupidity of the drawings while giving a bit more depth." His website has a nicely organized list of his many creations, {moscomment}
