We’ve just added two special items in the Hi-Fructose store and a special bundle where you can get both books at once and we cover the priority shipping. Both are fantastic and unique books; filled with pop-up surprises on each spread, bringing each artist’s work to life in new unexpected ways. Plus, the Skinner’s Necronomicon book comes signed on the inside in paint by the artist! Junko Mizuno’s book can be ordered here, Skinner’s book here, and you can order a bundle of the pair here.
Skinner, a self-taught, Oakland-based artist, stars in a new show with Super Deluxe. “Drawing With Skinner” combines the vibes of the Bob Ross series “The Joy of Painting,” “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” and “Wayne’s World.” Skinner, who makes paintings that combine psychedelic visions, pop culture, and other oddities, was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 14. He was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Those unfazed by blood, guts and slime will enjoy Arik Roper and Skinner’s two-man show, “New Maps of the Abyss,” opening this evening at Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn. Skinner (featured in our Hi-Fructose Collected 3 Box Set) is a Oakland-based artist and illustrator whose love of heavy metal and comic books is apparent in his mixed-media work. For “New Maps of the Abyss,” he created an extensive series of acrylic and ink pieces on board. Each neon-hued painting features a different demonic character from Skinner’s personal underworld.
