HILL HUDSON - 2 MULTI MEDIUM COMPOSITIONS

I've been friends with hill for a long time and watched his artistic style grow. he comes from a family of sick artists so it's only natural that he can throw down some crazy pieces like these 2. expect more posts of his work in the future.

- alex

BRENDA CRAVENS - 3 PHOTOS

i was drinking wine and scotch while the exact locations of these photos were discussed so i don't remember where they were taken. there were a lot more that went along with these but i felt like these 3 were some of the most moving ones. they documented the problems going on between israel and palestine.
-alex

PRESTON MCADOO - 2 PAINTINGS

i recently made a trip to the east coast for my brothers graduation from princeton. we also visited my grandparents who live 45 minutes away from the university. their house is a gold mine of family art. i spent 2 or 3 hours snooping around finding different pieces and photographing them. these 2 were by my uncle preston. there will definitely be more posts to come from art in that house.

JEFF ROBINSON - 3 PAINTINGS

jeff recently won best in show at the university of utah student art show with the piece at the bottom of these three titled "human nature." the actual painting is around 5 by 10 feet. a big strength in jeff's work is the scale of the pieces he does. his style is also very original.

DAVID MAIEFSKI - 1 DIGITAL COMPOSITION

got some more art from david. a lot of good work like always. this one really caught my eye though. the background is really interesting.. it's almost perfect. but it's the slight imperfections that make it really unique. the variety in size of a few of the different bars create these thin brown lines that give the background motion. that combined with the interesting still character in the foreground give it the feeling of a passing subway train with colorful lights. or some shit like that.

ALEX MCADOO - 4 MANIPULATED PHOTOS

i'm currently in california with my parents. my mother is the most stressful person to travel with in the world. luckily, on these forced family trips, i can now take photos. i didn't really get into photography until last summer when i got a 300 dollar digital canon a650. not the best camera in the world but with 12.1 megapixels it's not bad. add a little photoshop and i think the photos come out pretty sick.

SEAN KERRICK SULLIVAN - 1 PHOTO

sean has a really unique eye for photos. i don't know where this one came from but it's crazy. you can read an explanation of how this pattern was created here http://www.wheelsandwax.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=6567 but it still confuses me. i mean.. i know it's windblown ski tracks. but they're fucking exactly perfect! i know these old guy skiers really work on their form and turns but seriously... did a group of old ass skiers actually plan it out and make turns in the exact same shape one by one? or maybe it was a gigantic snow snake. i don't know. but it's a sick photo either way. GO TO http://www.seankerrick.com to see more epic photos from sean.

ZACH MCADOO - 5 PHOTOS

BUCK MCADOO - 2 PAINTINGS

buck mcadoo is my father and one of my biggest influences. his artistic style is intricate and very original.

these two pieces were inspired by different places he's traveled to throughout his life. i'm assuming the bottom piece was inspired by a place he saw during the time he served in the peace corps in africa after college. and i think the top piece is a painting of some river town he traveled through while he was sailing around the caribbean throughout the 60s and 70s.

DAVID MAIEFSKI - 2 MANIPULATED PHOTOS

ALEX MCADOO - 3 PHOTOS

my MIDI keyboard recently broke.. the input was loose and the computer wouldn't recognize it. for some reason i thought if i took it apart i could fix it. but then i realized i don't know shit. anyways... i was able to support the theory that "everything happens for reason" because i ended up getting some interesting photos of the inside of my keyboard and i wouldn't have gotten them if that shit didn't break.
