New York illustrator Josh Cochran just wrapped up his 15 day #StoryoftheOpen billboard project, commissioned by the U.S. Open. 

The concept (by DDB for USTA) was to capture and paint this year's most memorable daily moments at the Open. The best of each day would then be painted by Cochran on a billboard at the entrance of the Midtown Tunnel. 

It was a complete joy to keep up with the project over the course of Open, and to see what Josh was going to paint next.

Keeping tabs on her has been a joy, and when this collaboration with Finnish shoe designer Marina Parikka dropped this year I was insanely jealous.

Toilet Paper is an artists’ magazine created by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, exuding a surreal and ironic vernacular that both startles and seduces the reader at the turn of every page. There aren’t any texts or excerpts—only imagery and a long list of contributors, assistants, stylists and producers.
