One of our favorite purchases from the weekend at the LA Art Book Fair was a copy of Picture Box Inc's (in conjunction with ForYourArt) wonderful book, "In the Good Name of the Company: Artworks and ephemera produced by or in tandem with the Colby Printing Company."

"I took the original photograph that inspired the Partner in Crime series under a bridge near Yosemite National Park in California.

Rogert Gastman recently released the 4th installment of his "Tools of Criminal Mischief" series: "The Cans IV - Krylon Edition" for 1xRun. "I have a huge collection of vintage spray paint and markers that I have been collecting for years. This collection features all Krylon cans.

It has been awhile since we checked in with Evah Fan and her newer works, and today we take a look at the Oakland, California-based fine artist. Not only does she have a ton of new paintings to check out, but she recently posted some new prints and zines on her site, and updated some of her commercial works she has been doing for Sony and a few children's books. Take a look, and get the Coffee zine.

We were already looking forward to John Tsombikos, AKA BORF, and his solo show at the Lazarides Rathbone space later in November in London, but now we want to get our hands on these Rothko's Modern Life prints that BORF just released with the Outsiders prior to the show. He is calling that show the BORF Show. Perfect.
