Heroes & Villains Book Release

As some of you may recall, I have spent the past two years working with photographers Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho on a photographic survey of our art scene entitled Heroes & Villains. I'm thrilled to say that the book is now a reality, and is available to order! It's a lovingly produced, gorgeous coffee-table book designed by the talented Blaine Fontana, in a very limited edition of 1,000.

Heroes & Villains contains portraits of more than 100 artists, from painters and sculptors to cartoonists and graf writers, as well as an essay and 15 interviews that I wrote. Over the course of the project, I was fortunate enough to interview some fascinating people, including Mark Ryden, David Choe, Audrey Kawasaki, Saber, Blek le Rat, Marion Peck, Liz McGrath, James Jean, Tiffany Bozic, Ron English, Chaz Bojórquez, Molly Crabapple, Seonna Hong, and cartoonists Anders Nilsen and Kim Deitch. You can see their faces and read our in-depth conversations by ordering Heroes & Villains directly from Zero+ Publishing.
