ROCKIN' "connects all the dots," says Juxtapoz Magazine
Niiiiiiiiiiiiice piece in Juxtapoz this month!
David Choe's art is on the cover, and my friend Tara McPherson (poster artist, fine artist, lecturer, and former astrophysicist-to-be) is featured within. Speaking of hot collectibles, Tara's also one of the important new character-toy artists, led to that arena by our mutual friend Frank Kozik.
Juxtapoz gave ROCKIN' an in-depth review, emphasizing that cultural icons Stanley Mouse, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, Chris "Coop" Cooper, Sam and George Barris, Dean Jeffries, and Robert Williams--among others--are well represented.
And, speaking of Williams (who also founded Juxtapoz), his new book THE HOT ROD WORLD OF ROBT. WILLIAMS (a well-crafted 'biography' with great text and interviews by Mike LaVella of Gearhead Magazine fame) was a big hit this Christmas alongside ROCKIN'. Hey, go get the combo deal at Amazon!
