Art Crushin’ on Axel Morin

Freelance art director, illustrator and graphic artist Axel Morin is based out of Paris. After browsing his portfolio, I wish I could get him on board for some logo design and/or typeface work, but as co-founder of Monsieur Jean-Louis collective, a Digital Creative Studio, and other endeavors, I know the guy must cost a fortune [...]

Art & Dope Flicks: Graffiti Blew Up, Then I Threw Up

Dope Ambition Exclusive: Interview with director Greg Jacobs on his new film, LOUDER THAN A BOMB

Slam poetry is often dismissed right off the bat in today’s world as a pastime for the beatniks and the unconventional, but that could not be a less accurate description.
