This Saturday, March 3 from 2—4PM, in celebration of Skinner’s new book, Every Man Is My Enemy, Alex Pardee and Skinner will be signing books at our FIFTY24SF Gallery on Fillmore Street. Pardee’s Zerofriends helped publish the book, along with Upper Playground and Gingko Press. Get there early, come with a book. Or, better yet, Zerofriends will be selling copies of the book, along with other Zerofriends gear. Just a head’s up.
FIFTY24MX has curated an awesome collective show with original artwork and limited edition prints from more than 20 international and local artists – including Alex Pardee, Charles Glaubitz, Sam Flores, Rene Almanza, Saner and many more. The show opened last weekend and will be open until Sunday 19th Dec.
The location is a beautiful art noveau mansion in la Roma district, the young, bursting neighborhood of DF . Current FIFTY24SF artist, Ericailcane, made an amazing mural in the entrance and during the week there’s been several events: art documentaries projections, music concerts, multimedia art and lots of parties, tequila and wine. Tons of images of the work below, but to check the entire show, images and the catalogue. CLICK TO SEE THE REST

"Letters from Digested Children" In “Letters From Digested Children,” Alex Pardee pays homage to the children who are eaten by monsters. Alex states: Each year, thousands of children turn up missing. Some are found. But most, unfortunately, are not. Many of the children are victims of abduction, some are runaways, and a large handful of them . . . have been EATEN by monsters.
We are taking a short break from our "Move #19 up close tour" to bring you news about Upper Playground's ten year anniversary book. Simply put: it's bad ass.
Weighing in at 3 pounds and 10" thick with 612 pages of graphics and artist commentary, this is a better investment than most college text books. Seriously. A straight up catalog that tracks the evolution of both the company and the work of the artists involved.
Here are some between the sheets shots.
Available at UpperPlayground.com and for only $40. Congratulations and thanks to Upper playground for bringing us over ten years of the best artists and graphic tees on the planet.
