Brand New ANP. It's Good For You!

The new ANP Quarterly is out. It is a really swell periodical put together for the chosen masses of supreme tastes by Brendan Fowler, Aaron Rose and Ed Templeton with the super support of RVCA, your neighborhood clothier! To paraphrase founding father Fowler, the new issue is rad.

BLT with Mayo. Hold the BLT.

This is Jason Mayo. He has a gorgeous wife. He has two beautiful daughters. He lives life. He is seriously outnumbered. He writes about it all. You should take the time to peep it.

Get Yourself To The Barber

Shawn Barber is an intense painter and tattoo artist. His work can be seen at several galleries throughout the year as well as in various advertising campaigns. His most recent exhibition, "Tattooed Portraits," was mind-blowing. Check out some samples of his work here and more at his website.

This is a painting not a photo. Damn right, look at it again.

Jim Herbert and His Really Large Paintings

Over the last few years I have done work as an correspondent, cameraman, moderator and host for Indigo TV in New York, currently on an extended hiatus. One of the coolest guys on the planet, Jim Herbert, had a party/art show/rock concert (Smite, Americans) in Bushwick, Brooklyn. He is a rare talent who was responsible for the creation of several of R.E.M.'s seminal videos. Remember the "End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" video where the camera runs all over the place with a boy and his dog in a decrepit house? Jim. I held the camera, Trish rocked the mic, everyone had a great time, and Jim told us about his latest work. The image quality of this piece is poor in the new video format that the Indigo site is using, sorry about it in advance.

Ashley and Ashley

This is one of my favorite images as of late. It is Ashley Macomber in the ocean as photographed by Ashley Thayer. Both are great artists and you should check out their respective web sites.
