So I’m walking through the local bookstore the other day and whoa! Green Day book cover…nice. Even better they use my font UXB through out, both UXB Stencil and UXB Spray! I mean they used it on every chapter heading, cover and everywhere. Dookie! First time to see one of my fonts out in the wild. Love it.
Bob Peak illustrations on these two covers, ZING! Find the martini shaker, turn up the console stereo unit. Let’s play amongst the shag carpet.
Not to worry… it’s tourist photos in Mexico, if you were/are a long time resident of SoCal you went to Tijuana, and were photographed with an ass. No, not your brother in law. A donkey painted like a zebra. Strange ritual, for all Californians, one of the many. Mr. Heimann has documented this ritual in a new photo exhibit at the Santa Monica Museum of Art @ Bergamont Station see link for all the info on the opening and the events that surround it.
One of my favorite recent news items. I read different things about why Mr. Hopper shot his Warhol, this article states that Mr. Hopper thought Mao was actually in the room with him or following him with his/its eyes as he walked around the room. Another said…look around the web for all the stories. The auction catalog had this screenprint selling for 30 grand- it sold for $302,000.00. I would have paid $100,000 for each bullet hole. I guess the buyer did, in a way. I have never ever desired a piece of art more than this one.
This is the beginning. Sorta. I have been blogging for most of my life, wayyyyyy prior to the internet. To the distress of all my friends. First there was astroluxdesign.com now “astroluxdesign.com blog”, in which all things of interest to me will be launched and discussed by the supervisor of launch control, that would be…me.
