The Thing Quarterly’s first issue was printed on a window shade. As grad students, artists Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan knew they wanted to work together and, after a couple of false starts, settled on a Fluxus-inspired quarterly subscription service for art objects. What began as a year-long experiment is now eight years deep into the production of enviable editions and projects by the greats: David Shrigley, John Baldessari, Miranda July and Chris Johanson, to name a few.

Everyone's favorite object-based periodical, The Thing Quarterly, just kicked off their new T-Shirt series, an artist-designed shirt that will be announced two-three times a year and only available online via pre-order. Their inagural shirt is by the one and only Chris Johanson (featured May, 2014), known for his paintings, sculptures, and interactive environments - sometimes constructed as mazes - that explore the human experience and the physical world people inhabit together.

I am going to kick myself for the rest of the year on this one. At the LA Art Book Fair, presented by Printed Matter, a few weeks back, we really wanted to buy The Thing Quarerly's Issue n22, featuring a Jux-favorite, John Baldessari. The best part? The Issue came with two standard, Baldessari designed pillowcases. As The Thing notes, "this issue has been designed with the intention that one will sleep with it… or on it." We love print, too.

Photoshop should be proud of itself. As a nerdy child growing up in the 80's, Photoshop was bullied by everyone from older traditional artists to graphic designers who loved painstakingly cutting out letters and transferring textures.
