Elbow-Toe ‘Electric Windows’ video / recap…

Sure by now, most of you have heard about this, but they just posted some nice recap shots and I found a killer process video of Elbow-Toe busting out his piece for this, so I wanted to post a lil’ recap myself, along with a bunch of links, on the amazing Electric Windows project that went down recently out in NY (see final image of the bldg above).
Above is a process shot of Elbow-Toe going to town on his huge piece for the project. Check out a killer video of the piece coming together here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=jDfC1qYriOs

There’s also a killer video posted on Juxtapoz here: http://www.juxtapoz.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3749&Itemid=1

Joshua Clay does layout art for new Gym Class Heroes album…

Joshua Clay recently created the entire layout for the new Gym Class Heroes album… “The Quilt” hits stores nationwide on September 9th. See the layout above (click on to enlarge).

The band is out now on the Warped Tour, and are using huge cut outs of Clay’s artwork as back drops and enhancements to the live stage show. We’ll post some pics as soon as we get some.

Look for add’l behind the scenes pics of Joshua’s show that opens this Friday to be posted throughout the week on our Flickr page at:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/thinkspace/sets/72157605222664212/

Mark your calendar now. Be sure not to miss Clay’s 2nd solo show with us this Fri, July 11th @ 7PM. We’ll be rollin’ ’till at least 11PM and all the artists will be out for the opening reception, so stop by and say hey to Joshua along with Erik and Emroca (who just dropped off his work – really stunning in person – don’t miss it!).
