Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam is a leading fibre artist in Canada and Japan, using knitting, crochet, and knot making techniques to create her work. Currently, her work focuses on creating large, interactive textile environments.
MacAdam was born in Japan in 1940 but soon moved to Japanese-occupied Manchuria with her family during World War II. When the Soviet Union took over the area in 1945, MacAdam and her family were forced to flee and eventually returned to Japan. Later, MacAdam attended the Tama Fine Art Institute in Japan and went on to study in the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where she received her masters of fine arts degree. After graduating, MacAdam worked for Boris Kroll Fabrics, an acclaimed textile design company in New York City.
She then went on to teach at universities across the United States and Japan, including the Columbia University Teachers College, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, the University of Georgia and the Kyoto Junior College of Art. Currently, MacAdam teaches a textiles and fashion course entitled "Fiber Fabric Fashion" at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and runs Interplay Design and Manufacturing with her husband, Charles MacAdam, in Bridgetown, Nova Scotia.
We came across this artist and her work and had to share! Annie Noelker is a 21 year-old photographer currently based in Columbus, Ohio. A chameleon of sorts, Annie flits from portraiture, fine art, music and fashion photography. She pulls inspiration from her childhood home in western Colorado, her dad's treasured photo books that he always seemed to leave laying around and rap music.
MOUTH MAG is a music publication dedicated to exposing rap and hip hop in Columbus, Ohio by highlighting musicians, producers and managers through detailed interviews and photo essays. With this publication, Annie aims to humanize these often very misunderstood and misrepresented individuals. We are looking forward to this! The launch party for MOUTH MAG will be December 9th at Kafe Kerouac., click here to RSVP.

This is an amazing team! We happen to came across their work while in Columbus, Ohio a few years ago and have been following them ever since. Based in Portland, Oregon, Jon Stommel and Travis Czekalski are the team behind “Rather Severe” . We started working together on murals and animations while attending the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio. After graduating with our BFA’s, we began working together professionally to bring our combined aesthetic styles to the worlds of murals, illustration, animation, and public art. Together we’ve made work for City Target in downtown Portland, the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Dublin branch, four Mellow Mushroom restaurants in three states, The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Sacramento Elementary School in Portland, Taft Elementary School in Lincoln City, and several other non-profit community organizations in Ohio, Oregon, and Washington. We’ve won First Prize in Clark County Mural Society’s Summer of Murals Competition for the past two years consecutively, for murals honoring the Chinook Native Tribe, and the Vancouver Farmers Market respectively. We will continue working together on illustrations and public art throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond, and constantly strengthen our ability to create works of art that inspire the community and enrich the experience of being in public spaces!
Charlie Hebdo revealed their cover image for this week's issue, printed just days after two gunmen opened fire on the newspaper's office in Paris, killing 12 people. Four of the Charlie's cartoonists were killed in the attack.
The cover shows the Prophet Muhammad holding a "Je Suis Charlie" sign with the caption, "All is forgiven."
The newspaper said that it will print over 1 million copies this week, with financial help from Google, Le Monde and other organizations. They may even print an extra 2 million depending on the demand. It usually prints around 60,000.
