Vaughn Michael

Oh how i love post-modern-neo-club-kids, Vaughn is this amazingly gifted artist from
Los Angeles (Think Cindy Sherman meets Michael Alig) who in one instant brings me back to the good old days of Disco 2000 (I visualize Michael stumbling around). I love Vaughn's work - anyone that can transport themself into an alter ego, deserves a place in my book. His talent oozes through each image - it is his set up, the makeup, the style, everything. I'd say, amazing emerging artist, I can't wait to see where his creative path takes him. - Robbeyond

"Elastic Band" by Robbeyond

"Blog or Die - Even though print magazine ad revenue is down by 29% from just last year, there’s a slew of new titles hitting the stands in the hopes of reversing the trend towards on-line publishing. One of the freshest if not raciest is Try State, which features in their own words “quality art, trash, nudes, fetish, punk, music & fashion victims”. My reason for you to pick it up is that they feature some of the best up-and-coming international photographers and artists that you’ll see there first—before they get scooped up by the bigger titles."

Tripping the Light Fantastic @

Try State Fan and Painter Supreem
Scooter LaForge

Scooter's work is a trippy wonderland of fantasy and surrealism. I want to sit on his lap and have him tell me a bedtime story. Its like starting with the unaltered messages of the Brothers Grimm and watching it transmorgrify into night terrors. Sheer bliss, he holds my attention deficit disorder captive!

Go wonder around in Sexy Scooter's world for a bit:

Rob Adams
Painter, Photographer and man of mystery
Rob Adams' work is modest and heartful, his works bring a comfort and balance to our senses. I find him to be such an interesting person who reveals himself in a way that very few artists can. Rob has been able to create while blurring lines and boundaries - When you see his work and understand his story in the next issue of Try State, you are going to be BLOWN away!
Remember, things are not as they seem.
