I'm sorry to inform you though, that it's NOT in 3-D, unlike everything else that gets rereleased. But... it DOES have an all new cover and a new surprise twist ending!"
There are many of us who can't get the confidence and will to takeover a billboard and re-insert a bit of truth into the public consciousness, but then again, we can't all be Ron English.

A Thursday in July calls for something a bit fun, a moment of summertime ease if you will. We just came across The Creative Gun by Mark Fitz and thought this could be a nice image for everyone to pass around. Good work from the Dublin, Ireland artist.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
