John Michael Fulton Sees Simply

John Michael Fulton Sees Simply 1

John Michael Fulton is a professional photographer based in Los Angeles. He’s one of the many talents we have that shoots for independent, cool magazines like Surface and is always working on his own material. Of course he has his commissioned work and his portrait sections but the most important part of any working photographer’s website is their personal section. This is because this is the one zone that sees the artist taking a step away from what they’ve been getting paid to do and sharing some of their experiments or what they are actually obsessed with. What does John Michael Fulton like? He likes details and juxtapositions, these items that he frames beautifully and simply.

Otis’ Junior Designers Illustrate Themselves

Otis' Junior Designers Illustrate Themselves 1

Kids in art school these days: they have so many ways to get their work out into the world! Whether individually or as a class, there are so many tools at their finger tips on the Internet and beyond. One new thing that we have been enjoying year after year after year that is a very new is the “class website” students are producing to celebrate their work and promote their year end exhibitions. These sites are kind of like artistic yearbooks, a step into a time when you were obsessed with making this and your friends were all about making that: they exist as a time capsule. While we have yet to receive more of these (It’s still early and, if we get more, we’ll do our best to share.), Otis’ Junior Illustrators have passed along their website. Their showcase this year is titled Line By Line and their website features appropriate sketched out self-portraits (or are they?) that serve as a gateway to their work.

Kenny Myers’ Simple, Graphic World

Kenny Myers' Simple, Graphic World 1

Kenny Myers is a graphic designer who has been experimenting with simple and bold visuals. His work is partly minimalist shape play and part deconstructed image making. He takes houses and sunsets and feelings and breaks them down into lines and squares and and triangles, simple 2D geometric interpretations of often complicated, 3D items. He does a really cool job of streamlining images down to their most basic form.

The Solo Collective

The Solo Collective

One man shows are my shit. As an actor who doesn’t have time to suck up to places like UCB or the money to continue taking classes after classes after classes to buy your way into success, one man shows are a freeing medium that really let you do what you want. The format is great for imparting your point of view and for experimenting: it is a very rewarding performance medium. It’s not really respected in Los Angeles, though. There aren’t really any local theatres celebrating the format nor do people really seek these out. It’s such a shame! Well, Los Angeles’ The Solo Collective is embracing and celebrating this format by committing itself to the solo shows. It’s about damn time something like has happened.

So, What’s Inside That Mall By The Metro Center Station?

So, What's Inside That Mall By The Metro Center Station? 1

There are a lot of things Downtown that are stuck in a time trap. They’re either lost and (literally) abandoned in an early 20th century daze or are trapped in a loop set on 1985. There are many examples of this (Like.) and many go unexplored by Angelenos, especially those who don’t work Downtown. Every time I take the Metro to the 7th Street/Metro Center station, I’ve always noticed that weird Sheraton/”Macy’s Plaza” mall at 7th and Flower. What is that place? It looks like a brick box of Macy’s with a Sheraton made much in the light of the Bonaventure on top of it. While killing some time, we decided to stop in and see what it’s all about. Is it cool? Are there secrets in there? Is it really stuck in a time trap? Let’s see what’s in there!
