Carafanzine II by Sickboy, available July 7th




Sickboy’s weird hobby of finding and painting the great British touring equivalent of the New York subway train has culminated in the arrival of Carafanzine #2’.

The artist’s second personal documentary of his caravan painting is a 44-page A5 edition featuring Sickboy’s latest activities, typically involving “fleeing travellers’ yards with Pit Bulls nipping at my ankles.

Carafanzine #2offers a comprehensive collection of photographic oddments produced for the first time through the non-futuristic print method of Risograph.

Presented in glorious fluorescent pink and black, each ‘Carafanzine #2’ is uniquely hand-finished with drawings, and comes lovingly-packaged with a caravan sticker sheet, and five x A5Risograph prints.

Priced £39.00, the ‘zines are in a limited edition of 60 and are banded, wax sealed with a temple logo, edition-numbered, signed and hand-finished by the artist.

Wu-Jazz




Inspired by Logan Walters’ redesign of Wu-Tang Clan album covers in the style of classic Blue Note Records album covers, Gerald Watson teamed up with his friend DJ 2-Tone Jones to create Shaolin Jazz – the 37th Chamber – a Wu-Tang-meets-jazz mixtape which matches vocals from the Shaolin members with sounds from classic jazz records. NPR has published an extensive article on the Wu-Tang Clan/jazz music symbiosis which you should not miss. Watch the visual summary of the project above and download the entire mixtape here.

Gaming’s best known fighters, each with their own unique fighting style, bring you back to your old pizzeria face-offs. Figures feature articulated arms just itching to deliver that final sonic boom. Available beginning July 7 for $9.95/blind box (£7.90 UK; 9.20€ Europe). Hadouken!'



Street of Crocodiles



A man closes up a lecture hall; he reaches into a box and snips the string holding a gaunt puppet. Released, the puppet warily explores the darkened rooms about him. The desolate ambiance and haunting musical score convey a sense of isolation and futility, forcing the viewer into immediate identification with the mute protagonist as he explores a realm of mechanical realities and manufactured pleasures. As the protagonist tries to conform, or is forced into assimilation, the film slowly reveals how unfulfilling the surroundings actually are. Life and vitality are gradually stripped away to reveal the passionless cycle of existence.

Terry Gilliam selected Street of Crocodiles as one of the top ten best animated films of all time.

STUSSY X JJ VILLARD TEES AVAILABLE NOW






The blurb:

'The Stussy Summer 2011 collection includes a series of t-shirts by animator JJ Villard. A graduate of CalArts, JJ has worked on huge Hollywood films such as Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After and Monsters vs. Aliens before landing his current gig at Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. JJ’s personal work is drastically different from the high profile projects he typically works on. Inspired by 80′s pop culture, horror films and things of a darker nature, JJ used the idea of a sketchbook to inspire his tees. Using pens, pencils and markers, he created a series of t-shirts that capture the rawness of what a sketchbook is all about.'
