Anyone know where we could get a copy of Photoshop for a PC without dropping an arm and a leg?! Feel free to let us know- news(at)fecalface.com... It's gotten difficult to find a copy and for some reason ours won't transfer to a new computer like it's done in the past. Small business rates? Art website rates? No rates? In like 15 years never had this kind of trouble... and why the hell isn't there an equal application that isn't $700?!... Love Adobe and can't imagine using anything, but Jesus, $700 is a tad much.

Keds is now allowing people to custom design their shoes.. Which is an idea that's been done before, only now you can customize everything down to the threads, and it even lets you upload your own images. You can also put them to sale, which is pretty rad. May be the easiest way for an artist to do a shoe.. Remember those rad Urich dunks? I do.

Were out last night sailing about on the San Francisco Bay when The USS Potomac sailed past us. The boat was termed the "Floating White House" when Franklin D. Roosevelt used it throughout his terms as president. Later Elvis bought it and sold it after doing a bunch of pills on it... In 1980 she was involved in drug smuggling and towed to Treasure Island where she sank... Now restored, you can tour it at Jack London in Oakland and even take trips on the Bay... The baddest looking boat on the SF Bay.

Got this piece in the mail this morning from NYC based Dick Chicken. Thanks, sir (or is it ma'am). In any case, it'll go up in our art room. Who's Dick Chicken? Some love and some hate.

:: We Are Friction ::

WE ARE THE FRICTION <-- is a new book of illustration and short fiction created by 12 pairs of international writers and illustrators. Very nicely printed thick book which they mailed to us last week. We've yet to crack into the fiction stories, but the illustration work inside looks great. Worth checking out for only 14 English pounds.

:: William Hundley Bite ::

Charlotte Gainsbourg - Heaven Can Wait <-- new video rips off artist William Hundley... or does he? Maybe Hundley worked on the video or they just stole a bunch of people's ideas to get everyone worked up for extra promotion/ Twitter traffic. Whatever the case, it's a pretty good song/ video. Just hope Hundley got paid... Bryan Derballa clued us in on the video and writes "Did you see this Charlotte Gainsburg/Beck video? The director rips off some of William Hundley's work that I first saw on FF. I believe he rips off a number of other hit images from the internet as well. There's a whole debate. It's an interesting conversation about appropriation. Regardless, the video is pretty dope."
