Monochrome is Helena Vizcaíno, a visual artist and illustrator from Spain. She is currently living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She illustrates dark universes that don’t exist, elements from her imagination, natural and outer space elements. Her interests go from animation to the tattoo culture, to fashion design and advertising, where she also finds her inspiration.

Nike Air Yeezy 2

So Kanye gets two. Actually, minus the hype, we kind of like the way the Yeezys have come out in both editions. This one looks less Back to the Future and more fashion-forward, but we are going to lean on this notion that Nike designers had a lot of fun taking Kanye’s bizarre brain and making something work. Nike Air Yeezy II in both Platinum and Black editions will release June 9

@ FIFTY24SF Gallery: Michael Miller “West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures”

111 605x417 @ FIFTY24SF Gallery: Michael Miller “West Coast Hip Hop: A History in Pictures” tupac shakur michael miller Hip hop FIFTY24SF Gallery

FIFTY24SF Gallery, in association with Upper Playground, are pleased to announce West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures, a special two-day exhibition and book signing featuring the iconic hip-hop photos of Los Angeles photographer, Michael Miller. The exhibition opens Friday, April 27, 2012, followed by a special book signing of Miller’s West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures on Saturday, April 28 from 2—4pm.

Michael Miller’s photographs capture a unique era of West Coast culture, combining the emerging genres of gangster rap, skateboard culture, Los Angeles street culture, and the iconic personalities who help turn West Coast rap into a global phenomenon. Capturing intimate portraits of hip-hop legends 2pac, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Cypress Hill, as well as iconic advertising campaigns with street fashion giant, Stussy, Michael Miller photographs hearken back to a pivotal moment in history where he took rap, surf, skate, punk, and street fashion fused into one image. The Los Angeles-based photographer has worked in the entertainment and music industry for over 25 years, with a portfolio of over 300 major record covers, iconic supermodels of the ‘90s, and some of the biggest names in rap and jazz.

Influenced by the techniques of Peter Lindberg, Paulo Roversi and Javier Vallhonrat, Miller has developed a unique method of cross-processing film and different chemical baths for his black and white photographs. A graduate of UCLA with a B.A. in Film and Television, Miller moved to Paris after university and met top agent Rene Bosne. With Bosne’s mentorship, Miller began to shoot photographs, gradually gaining jobs shooting models for John Casablancas’ agency. After moving to Barcelona to shoot campaigns fro Cacharel Paris, Miller returned to Los Angeles in 1988 to shoot for Herb Ritts’ agency, Visages. Gaining recognition within the fashion industry, the music world took notice, and by the end of 1988, Miller photographed his first rapper, Arabian Prince.

For West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures at FIFTY24SF Gallery, Michael Miller will be presenting a series of his iconic early 1990′s hip-hop photographs, including numerous photos of 2pac, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, as well as photos of unique historical perspectives on Los Angeles street culture. Coinciding with Miller’s exhibition, we will have famed San Francisco musicians, Tommy Guerrero and ORB DJing the opening on Friday, April 27, 2012. On Saturday, April 28, from 2—4PM, Miller will be signing copies of his West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures at our FIFTY24SF Gallery.

The exhibition will be on display from April 27—28. 2012, with a special book signing event on Saturday, April 28 from 2—4 pm. The book is Miller’s West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures collection.

Wilco x Popeye “Dawned On Me”

…featuring the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in over 30 years. Directed by Darren Romanelli. We don’t care much for the song, as it is quite bland in terms of the great Wilco work in the past, but if we heard this on the radio we would be much happier than a Black Keys song.
