Photographer Paul McDonough spent time during his summers in the 70’s and 80’s travelling across America and captured some wonderfully nostalgic images. Sasha Wolf Gallery is having an exhibition of the work entitled Sight Seeing through May 5th, 2013.

About the artist:
Fernando Mastrangelo has exhibited nationally and internationally for the last decade. Mastrangelo uses materials such as sugar, coffee, corn, gunpowder, human cremated ash, and other more controversial substances. He often addresses social, cultural, and political issues with unconventional timely works.

The Los Angeles Times recently revisited their ‘L.A. 2013′ cover story from April 3, 1988 by making a PDF of the story available for download.
One of the ‘futurists and experts’ they spoke to for the story was the legendary Syd Mead, whose drawings accompanied the piece.
Lots of bold predictions of course, like your usual 200 story ‘mega rises’ and a sports utility vehicle that can adapt from a 2 seat sports car into a beach buggy via a ‘plug-in module.’
But the one that stuck with me gets dropped right in the first paragraph: “about a third of the residents have already headed out to their jobs, as required by Los Angeles County’s mandatory staggered work plan.”
As an LA resident who had a horrible run-in with the 405 yesterday, I’m all for it. Make it so.
Side note: Tesla’s Elon Musk suggests we double deck the 405… thoughts?

There is no surprise Chaz nailed the soulful end of the dance 12″ world, his Les Sins project is coming out wonderfully, reminds me of Osborne on Spectral Sound.
Baths is back with emotional bleeps, its like a IDM producer from 2002 is came back in 2013 with some vocal confidence.
Matthew Dear guests on the new DJ Koze album, Koze always mental pushes the boundaries and you can count on hearing something hypnotic and unusual joining hands.
With such stark contrast between the subtleties of the salt and the void created by cloth, at first blush, you’d think these were illustrations or oil paintings. Meet Shanghai artist / photographer Bence Bakonyi. There’s something so clever in how he twists your sense of medium & scale. Find more of his work on Behance.
With my love for trees and my love for prints I think Bryan Nash Gill’s Woodcuts are the perfect marriage. I love the complete organic nature of his prints. Be sure and check out the video as well, as it shows some of his process.
UK illustrator Neil Stevens a.k.a. crayonefire designed these beautiful prints inspired by vintage flight and baggage tags.
