Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to help Los Angeles-based artist MR44 install an indoor mural at the beautiful new Beer Belly Long Beach location in Downtown Long Beach. 44 executed the wall swiftly and expertly like the pro he is! Here are a few photos. [See More]

Two time POW! WOW! LONG BEACH participant Gary Musgrave, and his fiance Alla Bartoshchuk have been reported missing after they didn’t return from a roadtrip to Sequoia National Park this past weekend. All relevant info is included in the photo. Please share. UPDATE: Very happy to say the couple was found safe and sound, waiting it out after being snowed in.
Here are some photos from the Kat and Roger Open Studio in Verdugo Village yesterday. I got there quite late in the day so they’d been all but wiped out of stock, which is amazing and well-deserved to boot. Absolutely incredible work, and I was stoked to take a peek inside their workspace too. [See More]
Kat and Roger of K&R Ceramics are having a very special Open Studio at their lovely space in Verdugo Village today. They don’t usually sell direct to the public so it’s a special chance to score some amazing pottery direct from the artisans/artists. Visit my friends next door at Hutch LA while you’re at it! I’ve posted about Kat and Roger’s great work before here.
Apologies for the shameless side project self-pluggery, on a Wednesday no less, but hey, Selector is having its biggest sale of the year right now. Good time to get some obscure reggae gear on the discount! Get 45% OFF with promo code FORTYFIVE. Sale ends midnight on Monday 11/28.
A couple weeks back, when I went over to Brand Library to check out the current Nexus group show, curated by Thinkspace Gallery, I also admired the concurrent solo exhibition on display by Mexican City-based artist Edgar Flores a/k/a SANER. Entitled In a Dream (En un Sueño), the exhibition includes onsite installation work, framed original art, and some sculptural work too. Saner’s current work is heavily influenced by Mexican, Mayan, and Aztec iconography and folklore, which is right up my alley. It’s thoroughly impressive and well worth a visit. [See More]
