We like Marci Washington, so much so that she has been a cover of Juxtapoz and a cover of the Juxtapoz Dark Arts book. The Bay Area artist just released a new book of her own, For Forever I'll Be Here, and will be having a book signing tonight, July 18, at Park Life Mission from 6—8pm. Go check it out, get some paper love, get it signed.

We've previously posted Ralph Steadman's illustrations for Alice in Wonderland, today check out his 1995 illustrations for the 50th anniversary of George Orwell's Animal Farm. The edition included Orwell's unpublished preface to the original edition, titled "The Freedom of the Press." "The chief danger to freedom of thought and speech at this moment is not the direct interference of … any official body. If publishers and editors exert themselves to keep certain topics out of print, it is not because they are frightened of prosecution but because they are frightened of public opinion. In this country intellectual cowardice is the worst enemy a writer or journalist has to face."

Years ago, a group of 14 different artists started out as strangers living in all different parts of the world. Through various incidents, these strangers became friends. And after these friends fed off of each other's creativity, imagination and passion for years, these friends became...ZEROFRIENDS.

Stanley Donwood has long been famous for his album cover and companion artwork for world famous band Radiohead, but he has been able to take his highly notable artwork for the band into a stellar fine art and design career. We hadn't seen this yet, probably because it wasn't available in the US (someone tell us if that was true), but back in 2009 or so, Donwood did artwork for the cover of a special edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island." Fantastic pairing. Design by David Pearson for White's Books.

We focused on Germany's HORT in our Design department in the print magazine a few months back, and their website is full of past projects and client work that is some of our favorite in contemporary design at the moment. Today we are looking at the installation and catalogue work they did for artist collective DIE NEUE OFFENBACHER SCHULE, and used files and images from their archives and computers to create an interesting visual experience.

"Neanderthal Jeans" is Eddie Martinez's second show with half gallery following our "Studio Drawings" exhibition in September 2012. In an essay for his monograph (PictureBox), writer Glenn O'Brien compared Martinez's artwork to the jaundiced eye of de Kooning, reminding us that the eye is a door which swings both ways.

Those who know Kurt Vonnegut as one of America's most beloved and influential writers also know that his doodles and drawings were often included throughout his books, our favorite being The Breakfast of Champions. When he wasn't writing, he doodled. Compiled by his daughter, this book brings together the finest examples of his funny, strange, and moving drawings in an inexpensive, beautifully produced volume for every Vonnegut fan.

Dutch artist and illustrator Raymond Lemstra, who we interviewed back in December, has recently come out with a new book published by Nobrow. Inspired by primitive art, Raymond Lemstra focuses on using the most basic components of drawing to evoke a visceral human response. The world Lemstra continues to build with every drawing is both subdued and wonderfully rich, full of mystery and totemic power...
