Spain Rodriguez, RIP

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 29, 2012
Grin-inducing raconteur and Zap Comix' alumnus, Jerry “Spain” Rodriguez, passed from this temporal world yesterday. Driven by his passion on behalf of the working class , disdain for social artifice, and unapologetic lust for life, Spain’s drawing and painting matched his appetites. Our condolences go out to his wife and daughter who were with him at the end. His stories and images won’t be forgotten.

Haze Billboard in Honor of Adam "MCA" Yauch

Graffiti // Wednesday, June 13, 2012
In Haze's words about this billboard, “I was recently asked to create a memorial piece to honor MCA as part of the billboard project currently going on in LA.  The piece just went up yesterday at Santa Monica and Vine, and is the third in a trilogy behind Kaves and Shepard.  I was grateful to be given such a public forum to properly celebrate the life of my friend and collaborator Adam Yauch, and hope that these memorials will reverberate among the community that continues to mourn his passing.”

StayHigh 149 Rest In Peace

Graffiti // Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Legendary New York graffiti writer, Wayne “StayHigh 149 Roberts, passed away yesterday at the age of 61.  The artist who began writing in 1971 was known for his smoking stick figure and uni-wide “Voice of the Ghetto” tags.  After disappearing completely in 1975, it would be 25 years until Stayhigh surfaced again, emerging with a well-attended gallery show.  Stayhigh continued to write his name in the street despite his age and influenced generations of writers.

Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are, RIP

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 08, 2012
We lost another legend this week, with the passing of Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak early this morning. He was 83. Sendak illustrated over 100 books and authored over 20 more, but it was his 1963 landmark illustrated book, Where the Wild Things Are, and his character Max, that made Sendak one of the most famed authors of children's literature ever.

RIP: Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys

Music // Friday, May 04, 2012
We felt we would be doing a disservice today if we didn't mention the immeasurable loss of Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch, who died today at the age of 47 after a long battle with cancer. Of course, the Beastie Boys played a pivotal role in fronting a cultural fusion of hip-hop, skate, art, film, punk, and activism, and Yauch was at the forefront of socially conscious celebrity.
