Steven A. Soria is my favorite new director. He is like the drunken bastard child of Quentin Tarantino and Russ Meyer. His videos usually feature lovely girls dancing around in their underwear, tons of guns, and people getting their asses kicked. Make sure you check out the promo videos he shot for my Los Angeles Ink Stains and Tank Girl books. They’re amazing.
Visual Funk Art Destroyer. I do freelance illustration, advertising, animation, murals, live art in night clubs, all that. The two biggest books of my career came out this year – Los Angeles Ink Stains and Everybody Loves TANK GIRL. My new animated show, Disco Destroyer, debuts on the relaunch of Liquid Television on MTV in 2013.
My little brother just happens to be one of the most diverse and talented DJs on the planet. He has several weeklies in St. Louis, puts out amazing mixtapes, is the official DJ for Midwest hero, Steddy P, and has even opened up for Snoop Dogg. Make sure you get his latest, greatest, free funk mix, Soul Session: Live From Artopia.
I’ve had the great pleasure of working with these guys and I can honestly say Titmouse is the best animation studio around. Their main emphasis is pure artistic creativity and expression. Their cartoons, Motorcity, Black Dynamite, The Venture Bros, Juperjail!, Randy Cunningham, Metalocalypse, and China, IL are the best on TV.
As a member of LA’s legendary Root Down crew, DJ Expo is always keepin’ the true Funk alive. He hosts the Motown On Monday (MOM) Night weekly at The Short Stop and released the must-have ‘Devil’s Pie: Motown Tribute’ Mix Album, which you should immediately get.
Raw power! Pure musical destruction! This dude is one of the very best live DJs around right now, devastating crowds with his insane breaks and beats. And he’s also proven himself as a formidable producer/arranger with his brand new full-length studio release ‘Breakthrough’. Make sure you grab a copy.
