And so now we come to the end of the line, the last moments of 2013. It was hard picking the best features of our print edition this year, but we tried our best to narrow it down to some unique stories, from Asger Carlsen, Geoff McFetridge, Bruce Davidson, and Julie Nord, just to name a few of the standout art we covered. Today, we end with Todd James' exceptional cover story from the December 2013 issue, done by contributing editor Joey Garfield from the artist's studio in NYC... enjoy!

Something we are really excited about, and perfect timing with our Todd "REAS" James cover story in our December 2013 issue on newsstands now. If you follow James on Instagram, you have been seeing his really bugged out, cartoonish, psychedelic "Swords & Sorcery" drawings he has been doing, and now he will be having a ONE DAY zine/installation launch at The Newsstand in Brooklyn, at the Lorimer L/Metropolitan G subway stop from 3pm - 9pm, Saturday November 23rd. Be there. Go there.

Just in time for our December 2013 cover story to come out, Todd James has a new exhibition, Splash Damage, opening at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto this Friday, November 8. Expanded on both his pirate series, James has been working on some new styles of his playful girl paintings for his show north of the border.

We end the year on a high, high note, with a great December 2013 cover story on artist Todd "REAS" James. We have been scheduling a story with Todd for a bit now, and after the VMAs with the Miley bears, and another year where his exhibitions seems to get more and more stunning, we thought it was time to send contributing editor Joey Garfield out to NYC to catch up with REAS about pirates, girls, Mileys, vandals, and the evolution of his craft.

Black and white, low light, super 8, grainy and a good way to start your Sunday. This classic super 8 footage of AOK members Reas, Ven and Mesh, painting the New York subway in the late ‘80s is a rare find.

A few weeks back, we mentioned that NYC's Todd "REAS" James was going to open a new exhibition, Business As Usual, at Galeria Javier Lopez in Madrid, Spain. Well, that show opened. And then we didn't show you the art. And then we saw the art. And then we saw the art in context of the space. And then we thought, wow, that is beautiful. And now we share with you...

The Galería Javier López begins the exhibition season with the specific project ‘Business as Usual’ - the second solo show in our country by American artist Todd James (New York, 1969). The opening will take place in the context of APERTURA 2013, an event organized by the Contemporary Art galleries association ArteMadrid.

Well, obviously KAWS has big things in store this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards, airing this Sunday, August 25 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. We knew he had redesigned the iconic Moonman statue for the award show, and because we like to scour Instagram, we have seen a 60' foot KAWS designed Moonman that will be right in the heart of the Barclays Center during the show. But now we see some updates regarding the great Todd "REAS" James, some bears, and Miley Cyrus. We may actually watch this one.

The European season has been kicking off over the past few weeks, and we just got a look at what V1 Gallery of Copenhagen has going on at the Art Basel week festivities, with a booth of Geoff McFetridge, Todd James, and HuskMItNavn works at the Volta9 fair. If you are in Europe and have a plan to be in Basel, Switzerland for the weekend, we definitely think you should check out this booth featuring some of Juxtapoz' current favorites.
