Mondo write: 'Tomorrow we will release Rich Kelly's magnificent poster for one of our favorite films of 2013: the Coen Brothers' INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS. If you have yet to see the film (it is released on Blu-Ray and DVD today), it tells the darkly comic story of a struggling musician back in the humble beginnings of the folk music revival of the 60's in the village in New York City. Those who have seen the film will see how Rich captured that struggle of Llewyn's alienating, lonely journey perfectly.'

I want to start collecting animal skulls! Looks like Portland based artist Jason Borders already does, but then he spruces them up with some intricate patterning - nice! Check out the jump for more, then perhaps ask your partner or work colleagues for a game of name that skull, they won't find it weird at all….honest!
Illustrator Patrick Wong releases a 3" limited edition resin toy entitled 'MPC60' (after the legendary sampling drum machine of the same name) targeting beat producers, toy collectors, and connoisseurs of classic hip hop culture.
This first release in a series of beat machines, highlights the classic Roger Linn designed Akai MPC60 12bit sampling drum machine first released in 1988. This designer toy is based on the machine made famous by beat producers like DJ Premier and is known for its distinctive lofi crunch sound.
Patrick Wong writes: 'The Akai MPC60 is so iconic, it made the perfect jump-off point for this series. I want to make a genealogy of samplers from the late 80s to 2000s such as the SP1200 and Maschine, marking an evolution of both in technology and music. So much of the music I grew up with was produced on these machines and that why I have dubbed the series: The machines that made a sound of a generation.'
The MPC60 resin toy is available now for $35 plus shipping at http://patrickwong.bigcartel.com. They come with a numbered card, accessory break record and is limited to only 30 pieces.

How well does London based Captain Kris (aka Kristian Douglas) wield a pen? Apparently VERY WELL! These are just examples taken from the 'Sketchbook' area of his SITE and to be honest they kinda got me drooling like the dude in the image above! Hit the jump for further examples of his work - it's freekin' sweet!
