Erin Fitzpatrick


We’re really loving the thick, painterly brushstrokes of artist Erin Fitzpatrick. How she creates mood and personality in such a minimal amount of strokes is really refreshing.

Casey Weldon: Supernatural


Here’s the deal. One of our favorite artists is currently exhibiting at one of our favorite galleries. If you haven’t seen Casey Weldon’s work, or have never been to Distinction Art in Escondido, put this on your “must see” list. Casey’s newest show, Supernatural, is currently on view until May 3rd.

LIX 3D Pen


Um, wow. What will they think of next? The days of doodling 2 dimensional penises are over! If you’re ready to move into the 3rd dimension, get yours here.

Bicycle Portrait Project


Our good friend Chris Wimpey is having a photo exhibition at Chrome Digital on December 7th in Little Italy. A new series of  portraits from the Velodrome at Balboa Park will be on display from 6-10pm. Hope to see you there!

Lucid Stead


Our good friend Lou Mora recently documented Lucid Stead, an installation in Joshua Tree, California by artist Philip K Smith III. See more on Lou’s blog here.

Maryanna Hoggatt


We’re loving the work of Portland-based artist, Maryanna Hoggatt. Lot’s of great stuff on her website, so give it a look!

The Beginners Guide…


I had the privilege of receiving an advanced copy of The Beginner’s Guide to Running Away from Home by Jennifer LaRue Huget; illustrated by Red Nose Studio. We’ve been big fans of Red Nose studio since we started Subtext, and have even been fortunate enough to feature some of their creations in one of our earlier exhibitions. In this new book, published by Random House Kids, it reminds me of why why fell in love with Red Nose Studio’s work in the first place. I read this whimsical tale to my 5yr old this weekend, and he absolutely loved it. I have a feeling it will be one of those “go to” books for nighttime reading. The writing is fabulous, and of course, the artwork is stunning and unique. If you have kids (or even if you don’t), I’d encourage you to pick up a copy and experience it for yourself! Pick one up here.

DKNG Studios

We are constantly impressed and inspired by the work of DKNG Studios. Check out their work if you’re not familiar with them. Good stuff!

Husbands “Dream”

Our good friends at Sezio just shared this incredible video for the Husbands Dream single off their debut EP. Altough the typography appears to be a simple animation, it’s actually built in the studio as lighted cabinets that are  programed and synced with the music. The video was recorded live in studio. Simply awesome. Watch the video here.
