Illustration // Tuesday, September 15, 2015
We’ve posted before on Jake Fried’s drawings and animations and are thrilled that he’s created a new animation. Fried created the animation using only ink and white out (though in the past he’s incorporated coffee, collage, and gouache). The piece, “Night Vision,” is a trippy journey through drawings lost and created. He employs a mix of abstract imagery and reflections of the natural landscape, the animation eventually blinking out into stars.

Short Film About Sculptor Beth Cavener

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 11, 2015
The sculptures Beth Cavener creates focus on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal and human forms. Cavener wants to pry at those uncomfortable, awkward edges between animal and human. Entangled in their own internal and external struggles, the figures express frustration for the human tendency towards cruelty and lack of understanding. Something conscious and knowing is captured in their gestures and expressions.

Fashion // Wednesday, September 02, 2015
Born in Berkeley, CA, Tobin Yelland picked up photography at an early age with a focus on his immediate surroundings—the subculture and lifestyle of skateboarding. First published in Thrasher Magazine at age 15, Yelland's work has since expanded beyond the world of skateboarding to become a collection of images that lend voice to an entire generation, transcending many locales and social identities.
