Levon Jihanian is a BFA high honor grad from Art Center in Pasadina. His stuff doens't seem super influenced by all those art school kids, its still genuine and a style all his own. Its unrefined, but bold. His illustrations look almost like they were done with 25 cent bic pens. Anyway, they've got alot of personality. Give'em a glace on his site.

This guys a loopy character. I really can't find out much about him, besides he's a canadian, he's pretty respected among the low-brow artists up there, and his work is pretty distinct. It does remind me of David Shrigley though, but a little less thoughtout maybe? I dunno what I think of this guys stuff. I wish I could see a little more. His work consists of his corky root/poop/weed characters, and his dog renderings which he adds nice effects to with airbrush. He also does a lot of animation, graffitti, and sock puppets. A pretty unique combination of works. Anyway, some of his drawings and animations brought a chuckle to my throat, so I thought I'd share his link.
I also found this short interview he did, it was interesting: interview link

For those of you who don't know who Ed Gorey is, you will soon enough (I'm designing a website about him for a class, and I'll inform you). Anyway I made my first Flash animation, and I'm sure I'll regret posting this for all to see, because I'll later learn alot more about using Flash and this animation will embarrass me. But until then, enjoy: here's the link. The music is compliments of the talented Zach Carr. If you're bored click the link above the animation and browse my updated portfolio.
Let me know what ya think

So I'm guessing everyone is familiar with Banksy (if not, get familiar: http://www.banksy.co.uk/). He is holding a renegade warehouse expo in LA, Sept. 15th, 16th, and 17th. I plan on being in attendance and there's a good chance I may be at the press conference on the 13th to conduct an interview/informative piece for SLUG magazine. For those of you who enjoy Banksy's work and are curious about the mysteriouso himself; post questions that you may have and I will do my best to solicit the good ones.
