Truck Torrence is a Los Angeles-based illustrator whose work has been shown at Gallery 1988, Toy Art Gallery, Spoke Art, and Bottleneck Gallery. He maintains a weekly illustration series called “Truck’s Throwback Thursdays” where he shares a new memory every Thursday.
His influences are pizza, napping, coffee, the movie Hausu, his kitty Admiral Whiskers, and 2Pac.
As a part of a series of imaginative portraits, illustrator Dan Lish has being paying homage to hip-hop pioneers and legends in the dopest way. Afrika Bambaataa, Kool Herc, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, MF Doom, Kool Keith, Guru, and DJ Premier are all drawn in a comic style, immersed in their own fantastic worlds of records, anthropomorphic speakers, and the cosmos. The artist says on his Tumblr blog that there will be more portraits added to the "Ego-Strip" collection soon, including art inspired by Masta Ace, Melle Mel, KRS One, and J Dilla, and prints are also on the way.
We know that hip-hop comics have been a thing for a while, but there is always room for more, and Dan Lish's art would be perfect for this genre.

In the heart of Ardèche, the Pont d’Arc Cavern, the largest decorated cave replica in the world features an extraordinary collection of paintings, drawings, and engravings reproduced from the Chauvet Cave, aUNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the depths of a cave, the first artists in the history of Humanity painted a masterpiece: horses, lions, rhinos and other animals, captured in action, running, hunting and fighting.
Some 36 000 years later, engineers and artists accomplished a unique feat in the world by reconstructing this original cave, the Pont d’Arc Cavern. In doing so they rendered this extraordinary collection of paintings and engravings visible to all, transmitting the emotions felt by those who discovered the cave twenty years ago.
Upon entering the cavern in the midst of stalgmites and stactites, you will discover the world as it appeared to men and women 36 000 years ago. The artworks are revealed in an interplay of light and shadows, bringing the walls to life and draperies from out of the darkness. Hundreds of animals of 15 different species appear, engraved with flint, or drawn with charcoal or by finger. Skilful mastery of shading and perspective techniques make them come to life. The tour will take an hour, where you will wander along a raised walkway interspersed with ten stopping or viewing points with 27 panels on display in the cavern..

GOUZOU ??? WAZZAT??? A new car? A sport brand ? Not at all !!! For the new comers aliens, gouzou, is that special character that you can meet all around In Reunion Island, and in other places. Some have seen it in Madagascar, Mauritius Island, Le Havre, Rouen, Paris, Roma, Praha, Amsterdam, Bali, Lisboa, Barcelona, Hong-Kong, Macau, Mayotte... And recently in Tokyo ! So many events since his shy start in 1992 (Jace began spray painting in 1989)... so many advertisings have been parasited, tonnes of walls, and wheat pastings...Gouzou are often placed in absurd, funny situations . Some pretend that he has been noticed in the midddle of a 120 feet cliff, others pretend that some of them are as big as soccer yard . Some also promise that they have watched him on TV during the first step on the moon!! Believe me those one should have abused illicit substances. But... Who knows ? Perhaps one day ! Recently the local mascot (His dear daddy JACE has been promoted as "famous people" in le guide du routard 2003-2004-2005..., Between Roland Garros and Ambroise Vollard ! ) has escaped from a chinese rip-off. Luckily Jace is not the man who let it go so he decided to complain and chinese justice gave him back reason (it has become a jurisprudence case for author right in China)
