Pizza Dog Monster Explosion
October 18

Admission free, donations accepted

“Pizza Dog is a small dog that loves pizza, and can never stop ordering it. Some say that Pizza Dog was born with a pizza in his hand.”

On October 18, Roots & Culture will host the Pizza Dog Monster Explosion, celebrating one year of Pizza Dog’s daily GIF-of-the-day animations. The evening’s program features an exquisite pizza-corpse workshop and a pizza party, and of course lots and lots of Pizza Dog animation. Attendees are encouraged to wear pizza or monster-themed attire.

Pizza Dog is the name given to work that is created using a specific type of exquisite corpse. Since the first Pizza Dog comics in 2006, the original collective has expanded the ideas behind their comics creation into the area of performance, collaborative experimental DJ’ing, pizza parties, and live interactive animation. Pizza Dog is an invitation to participate in an attempt to destroy the ego and celebrate the zeitgeist using mindless surrealist techniques. We can only truly learn from what we initially consider to be absurd.

Programming at Roots & Culture is funded by grants from The City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, The Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelly Foundation, and The Illinois Arts Council, an Agency of the State of Illinois.

I just ran across some of the artwork of John Dyer Baizley. Frankly I was bowled over. I’m a huge fan of the gorgeous line work in art nouveau illustration and have tried my hand in it many times. Where I failed, John has succeeded in spades. He has moved the style from it’s existing nature meets fairies to organic death metal.

John’s a multi-talented guy. Besides creating stunning artwork, he’s also in the band Baroness.

Check out the gorgeous work of C215 from Paris, France. His striking portraits contrasted against amazing street textures are very compelling.

You can see more of his work on his myspace page or

in Fefé Magazine.

Kozy and Dan
“kozyndan are Los Angeles based mad scientists. they are working on a secret formula for controlled nuclear fusion, and are creating a line of edible chickens. For fun they like to take long deep breaths and dip their heads into bowls of rasberry jelly and lemon curd. They live indoors and don’t paint on walls. the couple also moonlights as freelance illustrators.”

I admired the work of this illustrator couple when I first noticed it on a Postal Service cd. I love the childlike quality yet top-notch production. I later discovered I’d run in to them early when I was enamored with the cover they did for Giant Robot magazine. It was a furry, bunnied-up version of a classic Hokusai print of cresting waves.

Their site is chock full of illustrations. Just check out their art work page.

Zezao, grafitti artist based in Sao Paulo, Brazil heads underground to create his artwork. He walks through the sewers of the city in search of just the right spot for his paintings – organic, art nouveau swirls. You can see a slide show of him at work here. Zezao is just one of a cadre of street artists in a Brazilian scene that has really blossomed in the last couple decades. So very apart of similar movements, Brazilian artists have struck out boldly on their own. Check out the work of”Os Gemeos” (The Twins), sibiling artists who have also documented the artwork of their friends on their website. — Anthony P. Munoz apmunoz.com

“Kiddie Records Weekly began in 2005 as a one year project devoted to the golden age of children’s records. This period spanned from the mid forties through the early fifties and produced a wealth of all-time classics. Many of these recordings were extravagant Hollywood productions on major record labels and featured big time celebrities and composers.Over the years, these forgotten treasures slipped off the radar and it became our mission to give them a new lease on life by sharing them with today’s generation of online listeners. Each week throughout the year we added a new recording and before we knew it, our one year project turned into three!”–Classic Kiddie RecordsThe cover artwork has been lovely restored by Kevin Anetsberger. The recordings are all available as well as the artwork, in a variety of formats – zip files, torrent or you can even order them on cd. — Anthony P. Munoz apmunoz.com
