Pushead T-Shirt - for 18th annual Tampa AM skate contest

Only $12 each

'The name Pushead is synonymous with the macabre, but it's not a death thing for the San Francisco-based illustrator. "I see skulls as your inner person, as everyone has one." His intricate and intense artwork first exploded in the early 1980s on toxic, genre-defining album covers and t-shirts for bands like The Misfits, Metallica, Prong, Cavity, Rush, Soundgarden, Dr. Dre, Cocobat and Dr. Octagon, as well as skateboard brands Zorlac, Conspiracy, Zero, and Thrasher magazine, to name but a few. Still, Pushead is more than the iconic artist; in addition to being the singer and songwriter for legendary hardcore thrash pioneers Septic Death, he's a record label owner and influential writer within the hardcore punk and thrash metal scenes. If there's a lesson to be found in the trailblazing history and prodigious output of Pushead, it's this: don't be afraid to reveal your inner person, because we're all made up of the same hardware inside.'

'Tree, line' - site specific installations by artist Zander Olsen

‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’

Shock Value - book celebrating the brilliant but disreputable filmmakers who terrified the world in the 1970s

“In the 1960s,” Jason Zinoman writes, “going to see a horror movie was barely more respectable than visiting a porn theater. You watched scary movies in cars or in dirty rooms with sticky floors.” 'These days, the multiplexes are jammed with splatter sequels and remakes, and zombies have invaded every corner of our culture. How did we get here? That’s the story of Shock Value: How a Few Eccentric Outsiders Gave Us Nightmares, Conquered Hollywood, and Invented Modern Horror (Penguin Press, 272 pages), Mr. Zinoman’s examination of the late-’60s and ’70s movies that scared—and continue to scare—the living daylights out of us.'

Anthony Lister paints a 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' mural in Los Angeles

Book sculptures by artist Guy Laramee

"With the vanishing of cultures, some people are displaced and destroyed. We are currently told that the paper book is bound to die. The library, as a place, is finished. One might say: so what? Do we really believe that “new technologies” will change anything concerning our existential dilemma, our human condition? And even if we could change the content of all the books on earth, would this change anything in relation to the domination of analytical knowledge over intuitive knowledge? What is it in ourselves that insists on grabbing, on casting the flow of experience into concepts?
When I was younger, I was very upset with the ideologies of progress. I wanted to destroy them by showing that we are still primitives. I had the profound intuition that as a species, we had not evolved that much. Now I see that our belief in progress stems from our fascination with the content of consciousness. Despite appearances, our current obsession for changing the forms in which we access culture is but a manifestation of this fascination.
So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are."
