Drawn and Quarterly just sent over a copy of Leanne Shapton’s lovely new book, “Sunday Night Movies”. Each page features a monochromatic painting of a still from a different film. See more images from the book below!
My friends Scien and Klor (123Klan) have just released a fantastic book (order it here) chronicling their work as artists on the street, and as a studio for clients like Nike, Stussy, Carhartt, many others.
Lots of great reference material here if you’re a graphic designer! I get to keep a copy for myself and give the other one away, so who wants it?
If you wanna snag the book tell me the name of your graffiti crew (make one up if you don’t actually have one) in the comments below!
Big congratulations to Campbell and company, a decade is a massive accomplishment. Their magazine was one of my biggest influences when I started Booooooom and when readers ask me about other sites to check out Monster Children is still one of the first I mention.
Take a look inside the book below!
This week’s giveaway is a copy of pop artist Brandon Bird’s “Astonishing World of Art” activity book. Bird was one of the first artists I ever posted about on this site, way back in 2008 (remember Seinfeld wielding the nunchucks?), and he’s remained a personal favourite.
The artist is known for putting celebrities into the most bizarre situations, his painting “Nobody Wants To Play Sega With Harrison Ford” is one of my favourites.
If you’d like to snag this book, leave a comment below with a request for a celebrity in a bizarre situation. I’ve posted a bunch of images below to inspire your suggestions, there’s a video too!
In July 2011, Foster Huntington (@fosterhunting) left his job and moved out of his NY apartment and hit the road in his VW Vanagon. In two years he put more than 80,000 miles on his odometer, surfing, and meeting other people who were also living in their vans. He started documenting these vehicles and tagging them with #vanlife on Instagram.
Foster is now raising money to publish a book of his travels called “Home Is Where You Park It”. Take a look at the video below!
She spent the last couple years traveling the world, shooting “switcheroos”, portraits of people swapping clothes. After she’d shot more than 200 of them, and had them appear on every blog imaginable, she decided to put together a book.
Well, she’s finally released her “Switcheroo Book”, and the best news for you guys is that I have a copy to give away! I’ve been sent hundreds of books since I started this site and I can honestly say this is one of my absolute favourites. She spared no expense producing this thing, and the final product is gorgeous.
If you’d like to snag the book, take a couple minutes to read my short interview with her below, and then leave her am encouraging message in the comments! I’ll pick a winner in two weeks (July 12th). This is open to everyone!
