CHRIS AUSTIN INTERVIEW

By Jonny DeStefano

Canadian sculptor and painter Chris Austin has a deep reverence for nature. His prolific craft plays at alluring environmental surrealism and is at once breathtaking and daunting. One can get lost in the energy and emotion of his paintings as Chris masterfully captures the beauty of animals. His reoccurring great white shark weaves in and out of the landscapes she patrols as a steward — where human beings have fallen short. Here, in Chris Austin’s world, nature is the protagonist in a story that is remarkable and at times a tragedy unfolding.

WEREWOLF RADAR: YOU HEIGHT UP MY LIFE
BY NATE BALDING W/ART BY MOON PATROL

As the song goes, “Short people got no reason to live.” Nobody ever mentions the flip side that tall people are fucking horrific.
Slender Man? Second-story peeper creeper. Goliath? Big-boned bone grinder. Even basketball players of sufficient height are venerated as regional demigods.

HER LONELY WORK
BY JOEL TAGERT W/ART BY JASON WHITE

The Hive is doing its work and its workers are happy.
The three present hum together faintly as they turn on the paralyzer. The eyes of the human child in the bed flutter open as she wakes. This is an occasional side effect of the paralyzer, and while it is not desirable, it will not affect the subsequent procedures. He is likely to forget it by morning anyway. It does not occur to them to consider the utter terror he must be experiencing, though they will administer another sedative in a moment.

JONO BOTTOM
BY GRAY WINSLER W/ART BY DAVE DANZARA

Jono Bottom was a cashier at Sbarro — “Home of the Original XL NY Pizza.” No one had ever made a pizza as big as their’s before. Size is often a source of pride for Americans, including the size of pizzas, the military and penises.

THE WORLD NEEDS MORE LIBRES
W/LINDA FLEMING BY BEATIE WOLFE

There are few environments that transport you to a timeless space, few buildings that feel like an extension of the land, few ways of living that remain so interconnected with everything that is. But Libre, an artist’s “commune” in the Huerfano Valley in Colorado, is one of them. Founded in 1968 by a number of the Park Place Gallery artists as an antidote to the usual commune approach of the time, Libre was a retreat for serious artists to work out in the country, share ideas and enrich their thinking. And unlike all the other communes of the time, it hasn’t just survived, but thrived, now in its 53rd year and still going strong.

DEATHWISH/ FRIENDSHIP BRACELET I go Godzilla Claus
BY ZAC DUNN W/ART BY MARK MOTHERSBAUGH

On the in-laws and floss
Like Bob Ross
Spill the sauce all
Arrogantly like an albatross
8 and 1/2 years later
Stew wing beats like
Gorbachev
Botched and hors d’oeuvres
The 7th letter
Never forgetter
Polo concreto
Critical break down
Abound face the t
emple of doom
Like short round
Kali Ma Shakti de
Display anatomies
Mythically dissected
Cantankerous convoluted
Excluded odd man out
In the Union
Jesus Youngstown
Crown of creatures
Upon noggins
Kenny didn’t log in
