Xlr8r/Chicago

Just picked up the new issue of Xlr8r along with the new Mass Appeal, both very good. Nuno already touched on the Mass Appeal, so I go with Xlr8r. The magazine is a bit DJ/Techeno, but they always have a great mix of art and culture to keep my interest. Don't get me wrong I love music, I'm just not into it reading about it as much as I am art and pop culture. The newest issue is a Chicago issue. I would have never guessed, but Chi-town has some amazing talent. This issue didn't bring my attention to the windy city for the fist time, but it's always good to have a refresher.

Ill drop some Chi town links for you to check out. The cover illustration and just about every other good illustration in the issue was done by Chuck Anderson who has built up quite a name for him self over the past few years. I feel he is a bit over hyped, but his work is hot none the less. The other Chicago link is one of my favorite artist Cody Hudson. His work has been everywhere, he has done everything and frankly I think everything he does in amazing.... Except for his website. A bit slacking, but that isn't going to turn me away from his work. The last link I don't know to much about, but I have recently been turned on to their work when I was going through all of my old bookmarks. some odd pilot. Have fun in Chicago land.

yes chicago is amazing, by far the best city to grow up in and leave, from my experience anyway.
