Lipton Brisk x Morning Breath, a photo by billy craven on Flickr.
Lipton Brisk recently released a series of bottles that were graphically enhanced by underground artists from around the globe.
My favorites are definitely the Triston Eaton and Brooklyn's Bionic Duo 'Morning Breath' [above].

The following info & images was 'borrowed' from Bill's website...and although outta my budget, it is still mighty awesome!
*Moniker: A Portfolio by Bill Daniel
-5 silver gelatin prints, 11×14,
-in an edition of 20
EDITION INFO: This is a set of five prints representing the five main rail artists interviewed in my film, “Who is Bozo Texino?” The images include drawings by Herby, The Rambler, Bozo Texino, Coaltrain, and a portrait of Colossus of Roads.
Hand-printed in full-bleed on fiber-based b/w photo paper, they are archivally processed (boxcars fade but the photos don’t), signed and numbered, and come in a silk screened envelope.

"Who is Bozo Texino? is the picaresque chronicle of a 16-year search for the source of a ubiquitous rail graffiti—a simple sketch of a blank-staring character with an infinity-shaped hat and the scrawled moniker, “Bozo Texino”—a drawing seen on railcars for over 80 years. Daniel rode freight trains across the West carrying a Super-8 sound camera and a 16mm Bolex, interviewing tramps and brakemen and in his quest discovered the roots of a folkloric tradition that has gone mostly unnoticed for a century..."

A mural that I did for the 14th Annual Chicago Bike Winter Art Show [Mar11-25, 2011] that I never got around to uploading.
I painted the entire mural with  household paint roller...no brushes or spray paint. Yes, The image is from the classic by Kraftwerk 'Tour De France'.

Dang! The dudes over at Parking Block Publishing have another bangin' zine! This one from Chicago's own, SNACKI, one of the more notorious graffiti writers of Inland America.
'The Moon Is Made Of Cheese' is a 20-page, full color zine printed on some heavy weight paper, too.
*a very important fact brought to you by SNACKI himself, "chimneys were once cleaned by dropping live chickens down them."
Over & Out will cost you $5...don't be a bitch and cough up the cash.

There were few saving graces, that is until I stumbled across the ADA Gallery space, which hosted the works of James Trotter. John Pollard [ADA co-director] was unhand. Unlike the 'blue-suits', he was extremely engaging and 'hand on my heart' bares an uncanny resemblance to Dayton Ohio rock legend Bob Pollard of Guided by Voices.
