Believe it or not, GRAFFOMAT is introducing a graffiti art supply vending machine. “Forget about the times where you would run out of paint in the middle of the night and there would be nothing you could do about it. Graffomat is here for you 24 hours a day, located easily accessible on almost every street corner in your neighborhood.” We can already see a few issues with this (i.e. who actually buys paint?) but a novel idea nonetheless.

Morals Fiber is a brand based out of Honolulu, Hawaii. The brand also has a screen print shop that supplies quality work to a long list of specialized clients. Morals started in 2000, then the brand took the back burner to the demands of clients and other projects.
To bring some fresh blood into Morals as a brand, founder, Kyle Ito decided to incorporate the help from local tattoo artist Lucky Olelo and Aloha Fixed’s Ryan Lau. In time for Summer 2010 they present their new collection and also give a nice look into their screen printing process on one of Lucky Olelo’s designs for the new line. Check out the video here below.
Soon to be appearing in the shops, and one to be snapped up, Beyond the Street features interviews with leading artists such as Shepard Fairey, Swoon, and Os Gemeos. The book also offers the views of representatives of the most important sales outlets for street art including Jeffrey Deitch and Jonathan LeVine Gallery. In addition, curators from auction houses such as Christie’s and Phillips de Pury comment on the development of street art in a classical art context. Interviews with key commentators, collectors, and enthusiasts such asMartha Cooper, Wooster Collective, and Agnes B. provide further insight. Brought together, these separate and distinct perspectives create a uniquely authentic collective portrait of street and urban art that is captivating, informative, and entertaining.
It can be found online HERE.

EMEK's thinking behind it:
so I was thinking about the realtionship between Art and Music... how do you paint something that happens in a split second...
What do you think ?

Tomer Hanuka’s “Father: Encounter on Dagobah”. The 19″x25″ poster print is a limited edition of only 350, each hand numbered. The poster will go on sale on Thursday July 29th on the MondoTees website at random time.
Here is a quote from the artist, Tomer Hanuka:
“The central idea going into this image was depicting planet Dagobah itself as a portrait of Luke’s subconscious in it’s most interesting and unformed phase. In a nightmarish sequence, Luke runs into the mist where he thinks he saw Vader. Luke finds him and a lightsaber duel ends with Vader’s decapitation . The mask cracks open on the severed head, exposing the frozen face of a dead Luke Skywalker. The suggestion here is that somewhere within Luke’s psyche there is a potential for ultimate evil. Luke’s greatest challenge isn’t the Galactic Empire and it’s endless, faceless troopers, but the magnetism of the dark side; the seductive idea of choosing his own potential for power over everything else.”
He did a great job working the Vader helmet into the layout. This one will go fast be on it.
Both prints are just $20 each, and are available for sale right now HERE.
And, don’t forget to check out the new FREE PRINTS.

BIG THANK YOU FROM MARK5 TO EVERYONE THAT BOUGHT ONE
I was talking with Mark5 about when he was going to release his Signed and Numbered Editions of his HOT St Louis Pearl Jam poster. He sold some at the Seattle poster show but held some back for everyone else until his website got finished. Knowing how slow and sometimes unreliable web page developers are I said hey lets sell them on here and get them in the fans hands. So he has less than 80 to sell to you.
So here is the deal, look above for his email address in the picture. Send him an email, he will THEN send you a paypal request for payment. Easy as that.
The posters are 18 x 24 inches. Signed and numbered edition 100.
$55 plus $8 for shipping in the USA and $18 International shipping

We're excited to announce the newest venture from Roman Titus, former founder/director/curator of The BLDG, AnalogApes.
Roman Titus has recently sold The BLDG and moved to Chicago and began AnalogApes to continue curating and publishing art prints. Look for some new amazing prints coming from artists like Andy Kehoe, Rodrigo Level, Matt Haber and others. Roman will also be releasing his own prints through AnalogApes as well.
Feel free to take a quick look around on the site to see some of the projects we've been involved in and while you're at it, buy a print or two.
Our next print release is the first in a series of three from Roman Titus. This print is a theatre in Cincinnati, OH known as The 20th Century Theatre and is entitled, "Theatre I" It is a 19"x25", 5 color hand pulled screen print with Metallic Silvers. It's an edition of 50 on French Paper. It goes on sale on www.AnalogApes.com at 1p.m. EST on Tuesday, July 27th for $35.
The title of this print “Moon Over Biloxi” is a tribute to the Dead Kennedy’s song “Moon Over Marin”. In 1984 I picked up maybe my 4th punk record which was the 2nd Dead Kennedy’s album “Plastic Surgery Disasters”. The album is a great listen all the way through and includes some blistering tunes like “Riot” and “Bleed For Me” laced with social commentary. The surprise song though is “Moon Over Marin”… detractors have called it the Dead Kennedy’s “U2″ song, but I disagree. “Moon Over Marin” is more melodic than most DK, but juxtaposed with the darkness of the lyrics, the song evokes a powerful sense of existential melancholy. I think the concept that struck me, and stuck with me, is that our disrespect of each other and the planet may doom us , but things will continue without us. I think it is healthy to recognize impermanence, but also to appreciate the value of the ephemeral. Moonlight, real or electric, will probably be around, but what it will be casting light on is the real question. There will always be a moon over Biloxi.
For Release on the Full Moon, Tuesday July 27 at a random time. 18 x 24″ Screen Print, Signed and Numbered Edition of 400 (Cream) and 200 (White). A portion of the proceeds go to the NRDC. Keep the F5 finger working ObeyGiant.com
Artist Bobby Hill sent over information on his ambitious project.
It seems as if there’s a grandiose game of hide n’ seek being played in NYC and no, I’m not talking about the kind played by grade school children in summer camp (although that’s fun too). Since July 2nd 2010, pedestrians and subway riders have been pleasantly surprised to find limited edition “Bobby Hill Multiple Original Art Prints” during their commute throughout the city. Each of these unique works of art is conservatively valued at $50 apiece (not considering prices increasing over time), which means Bobby Hill is dropping over a cool $50,000 in total on the unsuspecting folks of the 5 boroughs.
Internationally known visual artist Bobby Hill has created 1000 limited edition Multiple Original art prints to celebrate his one-man show, "BHILLBOARDS" (pronounced: billboards), which opens this upcoming 9/11, for two nights only in NYC during Fashion Week. The exact location will be announced August 31st via Resetuniverse.com and to those who RSVP. The original prints, which currently features images of Bob Dylan, Bob The Builder, and a special one of Muhammad Ali, were individually handcrafted by Mr. Hill on found corrugated cardboard. These pieces will continue to be strategically placed throughout NYC until September 10th, 2010.
The lucky few that find one, will have a unique work of art that lasts a lifetime and the opportunity to bring it to the Bhillboards Artshow to get it signed. In addition, the first 250 guests to the arrive at the show will receive a NYC 9/11 inspired “Bobby Hill Multiple Original Art Print.” For more info, visit www.resetuniverse.com or www.youtube.com/resetuniverse.
BHILLBOARDS is never resting on your laurels, never living off yesterday’s victories never taking anything for granted and always pushing the envelope by putting your best on display for the world to see. Bhillboards is determination multiplied by vision. Bobby Hill, Resetuniverse.com, NYC… Bhillboards.
If androids dream of electronic sheep, do rabbits have nightmares? Los Angeles illustrator J.R. Goldberg, has dedicated countless hours of scientific research on sleeping bunnies to explore the depths of their depravity.

J.R. Goldberg is an illustrator, printmaker, and comic book artist who resides in the ancient caves of Los Angeles.

J.R. recently had her first book published by Slave Labor Graphics, entitled JELLYFIST, for which she provided the illustrations, and half of the commentary. Additional works include HOW TO BE A PROPER HOST, and other zines for the Small Science Collective. J.R hopes to not become a hobo, forced to draw on the side of dumpsters, and eat cardboard.
