:: West, Wester, Westest ::

FLAVORPILL PICKS <-- our upcoming show West, Wester, Westest @Fecal Face Dot Gallery to see this Saturday. "Fecal Face's Chicago correspondent, Ryan Christian, heads west with a talent pool plucked from all over the map - New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, and LA - with each of the 11 artists lighting out for imaginative territories. Amy Mayfield's bright-hued paint-pours on canvas resemble psychedelic aquariums, while storms brew beneath the nervous, wispy lines of Erin Morrison's nature drawings. Mike Rea carves large-scale wooden space modules and suited astronauts rich in fantastic detail. These artists, their westward expansion notwithstanding, are definitely on the way to somewhere promising." -Flavorpill
works from Eric Lebofsky (Chicago), Frank Magnotta (Brooklyn), Josh Mannis (LA), Amy Mayfield (Chicago), Erin Morrison (Seattle), Alexander Kvares (Atlanta), Tom Long (NYC), Scott Anderson (Chicago), Mike Rea (Chicago), Casey Jex Smith (CA), Geoffrey Todd Smith (Chicago)... Curated by Fecal Face's Chicago corespondent, Ryan Christian.

:: Chrome Ugh ::

We're working on a little preview of some of the shows opening this week, but were trying to do it using the new Google Chrome... It's kinda poo poo right now. Bummer... Anyway, a preview on its way. Firefox, I stay with you for now.

Google's new browser, Chrome, is expected to be available for download sometime around 11am (Windows only). Found some screen shots of it. Can't wait. Have you seen their comic yet which details it? They'll post download info here when they're ready. Browse.

:: Dated, but dope on 35mm. ::

Sure did love it when Stereo spit out all those limited signed #'d decks a little more than a few years back. And let's not forget all the dope designs, Fecal Face's Matt Irving rocked for Stereo. Got most of those bitches tucked away, dewd! Was nice when collecting decks was about the rad score and not so much the mad pay-out! Anyway, I always like settling my mind to this little skate, art, piece of magic from years past.

:: Greg Simkins @ Joshua Liner NYC ::

Going back a few years now, I stumbled onto a random graffiti page with the illest work by a writer named 'CRAOLA'. After obsessing for a bit I dug up some more dirt on this Greg 'CRAOLA' Simkins guy and discovered his fine art work was just as insane, but in a completely different context. As in NOT text, as much as character illustration craziness. Years later I managed to get some words with Greg Simkins and was pleased to find he is as solid as his skills. Needless to say we're stoked to see him (and mrs. monsta) swing through New York, this coming Saturday the 6th, with a whole new batch of works. Show up, and leave with your humility!
