Irvin Guzman's Everyday Ends

To put it simply, “Everyday Ends,” is a show about death. But instead of focusing on the obvious iconography of the subject, Irvin Guzman — a first-timer solo artist and goes by his nickname ‘Tofu’ — creates his own. In designing a landscape of grim, but colorful wastelands, of deadly but approachable demons, Guzman develops scenes and characters that would inhabit death as at dimension — as opposed to as a physical state of being.

Guzman's technique with graphite is astounding, and the first stop into a list of incredibly well executed mediums. From two dimensional hyper detailed surreal drawings to articulated sculptures, and then experiential spaces (did you see the doome face outside?).

“Everyday Ends” is curated by the artist collective Bloody Gums and PBR's art program and is on view Feb 9th-16th.

Thank you for the hangover, LA

via Monster Children

If you made it to the party at 1700 Naud last night, you know what I’m talking about

We all drank like there was no tomorrow. Well, tomorrow is here and it doesn’t feel great. It all was for a good reason, so no regrets here. The LA Issue 61 launch party / 15 years of Monster Children / Photo Annual too good and too many beers were consumed. Someone even drank an entire bottle of bacon bourbon we had in the office — which we kept there as a joke. Now we’re paying for our bad choices and nursing this hangover that we have no one to blame for but ourselves. My heart goes out to you, bacon bourbon drinker, whoever you are.

Say yes to Ponyboy

Our buddies Michael Stember and James Dorje came over to cook an amazing private dinner for guests. It was too good not to be shared with the world, so here are some photos. You probably weren't here but at least you get to have an idea.

Jealous? If you live in New York, you can check out their incredible new restaurant Ponyboy in Brooklyn.

Now you know that if anyone invites you to a private Ponyboy dinner, you have to say yes.
