Iconograph #2 from Them Thangs Editions is now available…
Curated and published by Justin Blyth, this 80-page magazine features work from 32 international artists, including BITNB artists Joel Evey, Carey Haider, Andrew Kuykendall, Dan Monick and Justin Blyth himself… Available for purchase now on their website.
Them Thangs Editions presents Iconograph #2, curated and published by Justin Blyth, with contributing editors Hassan Rahim, Justin Van Hoy & Andrew Pogany.
Due for release on January 23, 2012, Iconograph #2 is the second print offering in an ongoing series that gathers an eccentric collection of visual media and literature exploring the contemporary use of Ritualistic Iconography—the systems of symbols, mythic representations, and religious imagery from which we seek meaning.
Iconograph #2 features work from 32 artists from around the world, including Michael Willis, Adam Tullie, Carey Haider, Andrew Kuykendall, Eliot Lee Hazel, Julien Langendorff, Daniel Albrigo, Curtis Kulig, Dan Monick, Cleon Peterson, Joel Evey, Max Snow, Ward Heirwegh, and Department International, among others. It also includes a literary portfolio with writing from Barry Graham, Ernest Hardy, Larry Fondation, Maya Stocks and others.
Iconograph #2 is an 80-page curated document, offset printed on an 8-color Heidelberg press in Belgium, in an edition of 750. It is privately funded and contains no advertising, promotion, album reviews, or horoscopes.
The publication is dedicated to the untimely passing and memory of Justin Van Hoy, a renowned artist, gallery owner, and friend.
A bunch of our fantastic artists are in this show! Don’t miss it, tomorrow only!

Dan Monick lives and works in Los Angeles. Dan is publishing a book of photos, art directing the L.A. Record, making videos, photographing furniture and bands. He owes Sean Daley and Paddy Costello his life. If they hadn’t been so free with their likenesses and patient with all Dan’s bullshit requests to do weird shit, he would still be driving a delivery truck part time in Eagen, MN. Now he drives a Volkswagon Passat wagon most of the time in California. Fair trade? Anyone’s guess.

Every week a different FADER staff member will pick a clothing item or accessory that he or she has lately been spending a lot of time with—or would like to—and write a little love letter to it. We would’ve done a column on who we’re dating but that seemed a little bit much. This week Maia Stern writes about the Blood is the New Black Storm Coming tee.
You know how when it’s scorching hot outside in the summertime and you wish it would snow just for a minute to cool you down? Or when it’s nose-nipping cold outside and all you want to do is bake in the sun until you’re light golden brown? Well, how come no-one ever wishes upon a storm? It’s unusual for someone to hit the beach and say “I’m just so hot at the beach right now, I’m just melting on all this sand and all I want is to look up and see a dark, black sky with hints of nimbus clouds and heavy rain approaching.” I mean, we just don’t want that, right? But that doesn’t mean we don’t want that printed on a shirt for all to see!
This Blood Is The New Black women’s boyfriend shirt by Dan Monick fills that void perfectly. The stormy print suggests there is nothing wrong with the idea of an advancing storm, a far cry from the general distaste one may feel for an actual storm warning. It’s a feeling not unlike the one ol’ Magritte conveys with his moody, bluish-grey colors and tones. This style gets its “boyfriend” moniker from its larger-than-most neckline and sexyish slit on the back. Ladies, we’ve come a long way from the Baby tee—keeping it loose is the way to go and definitely the most comfortable. This shirt also comes in a regular cut for all you actual boyfriends out there. Perhaps the more people who can recreate a storm, the higher the chances we can prevent future ones, no?
So exciting! Come out and support This Gallery. Their Inaugural group show features works by almost a dozen BITNB artists!
