One of our all-time favorites, and 2x cover artist, Brooklyn-based Swoon, just started a print website, Swoon in Print, where she will be releasing limited-run prints. As the site mentions, better than we can break it down, "Swoon in Print is a resource for small, hand crafted, unique variant print editions by the artist Swoon."

Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath left many cities and towns on the Eastern Seaboard inoperable or completely destroyed, many having to rebuild on their own without any government assistance. The beach communities of the Far Rockaway and Coney Island in Queens were greatly affected. A group of New Yorkers came together to help their recovery process by setting up a silent auction and fundraiser with 100% of the proceeds going to the communities.

We just had our pre-Halloween costume party with Alex Pardee this past weekend, but we think if you happen to be in Brooklyn on October 31, Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" installation/performance/exhibition/party would be something you should definitely spend time at. Coming soon to the House of Vans...

'Tis the season. No, we don't mean holiday cheer, we mean the Political Season, a time of undecideds, debates, and campaign trails. Juxtapoz is in a similar mood, and we brought legendary fine artist and political satirist Ron English to our November 2012 issue to have him curate our special examination of Politics & Art in 2012.

I have been on a Major Lazer music marathon lately and of course that means I have been listening to plenty of Diplo. While watching videos this morning to get pumped for the day, I ran across the “Express Yourself” video by Diplo, which basically consists of more ass shaking than anything. If you watch closely, the video has a quick frame where a Read More Books sticker is the main focus and Swoon's wheatpastes act as a backdrop for a majority of the song.

New Swoon pieces have been popping up around Brooklyn and they are a stand out among all the amateur attempts at “street art” you become desensitized to seeing. As usual, this piece is highly intricate in its cuts and line work.
