How It Works by Austin Kleon

To create his famous Newspaper Blackout Poems, artist Austin Kleon “blacks out” newspaper articles with a marker, creating poetry out of the words that remain. “How it works: I will give you whatever you want for all the cartwheels you’re doing for me,” Kleon unearths from an article about hedge fund investing. “Like many of my poems, it’s about my wife,” he sweetly explains.  This romantic print is among our special Valentine’s Day selections—see them all here.

Prints of this edition begin at $60. Check out Austin Kleon’s excellent Tumblrs, newspaperblackout.com and tumblr.austinkleon.com.

Atari by Hollis Brown Thornton

Artist Hollis Brown Thornton is borne back ceaselessly into our digital past. “The collection of games is a tribute to these digital origins, as well as a tribute to the excellent artwork on these worn out cartridges,” says Thornton.

Do you have fond memories of playing these games? Are any of the cartridges still in your possession?

Watercolor Sydney by Stamen Design

It’s almost Australia Day, the antipodean continent’s version of Independence Day, commemorating the arrival of 11 really big ships into Botany Bay and the emergence of a new southern nation. Today, 20x200’s two resident Aussies—Matthew Tribe (Sydney) and Emma Pearse (Canberra)—compare memories with Watercolor Sydney, a vibrant rendering of Sydney, Australia, where the famed harbor is sparkling and where, at this time of year, locals are getting around in flip-flops.

Untitled #6 by Jessica Bruah

What story does this image tell? Artist Jessica Bruah began her project Stories, from which this image is taken, as a way to merge her interests in writing and photography. “The work is influenced by the formal qualities of short fiction and its tendency to focus on a single mood or event,” says Bruah.

This enigmatic photograph contains elements that could be innocuous or sinister, depending on the tale created by the viewer. For what purpose will the gasoline can be used?

Disassembled by Ky Anderson

Ah, the human eye, which searcges for reflections of itself everywhere it looks. It’s a figure—or is it a figure eight? An hourglass, or perhaps the infinity symbol? Ky Anderson calls today’s edition Disassembled, and indeed, this image is made of disparate parts as compelling as they are just out of reach. The pale and dark blue and bright yellow forms that seem to float through this forthrightly posed figure could be layers in a color chart, but they might also suggest sky and water, maybe a sun-baked beach. Inside the confident lines are curlicued wisps of white that could be thoughts as much as clouds—contained chaos amid the work’s initial idea of order. Keep reading.

Crystalline Bunker by Aili Schmeltz 

From our SoHo HQ beneath the misty skies of wintry NYC, we’re looking across the continent to Aili Schmeltz’s Crystalline Bunker, an homage to the sunny dystopia that is suburban L.A.

The highways and the high life—Los Angeles can feel like Sodom and Gomorrah, bewitching, beautiful and a bit wicked at once. Schmeltz lives and works in L.A. and is free about her mixed feelings: “My recent drawings examine my love/hate relationship with the city of Los Angeles.” Keep reading.
