The long awaited follow up to Craig Thompson’s multi-award winning graphic novel, Blankets. Habibi revisits familiar personal themes for the author but set in a foreign land. An epic accomplishment on all fronts, taking close to seven years to complete, it’s an intense visual experience, another moving tale of love and a thoughtful look at […]
In early October, I was lucky enough to experience the Japanese post-rock instrumental quartet Mono, accompanied by the Holy Ground Orchestra as part of the Melbourne Festival. A sweeping, emotive 90 minute spectacle of both joy and sorrow, made stronger by the accompanying full orchestra and the perfect venue of the Forum Theatre.
I’m not sure exactly what Niklas Jansson does. Something in game development, I think. But I’m certain we would have gotten along as kids. He has a thing for redesigning all the best Nintendo games, like Metroid, Rygar, and Mega Man; he loves vintage Lego, robots, and table top games; and is a master painter […]
This is a patchwork of floating garden islands located in the Northern French city of Amiens. It’s a method of farming practiced in the region since the Middle Ages. A flower and vegetable market is held on Sundays, but the real experience is taking a tour of the canals by boat. Magic.

Looking at a Mars-1 piece has to be a bit like getting sucked into a black hole, right? The master of wild pattern, geometry and color opens his first solo show in San Francisco since 2005, at the FFDG temporary space on 11.11.11.
So, after more than fifteen years of denying they would ever reunite, the legendary Manchester band has done just that, announcing three shows next June and selling those out in record breaking time. Met with both speculation from critics as a
