If we grew up hundreds of years ago we probably wouldn’t think of an overpass as a canvas for a piece of art.  (In part because there were no overpasses.)  However for as long as we can remember, we’ve liked our art like we’ve liked a lot of things in our lives – with a hint of danger and illegality – so we’ve long been fans of what we’ve dubbed The American Graffiti Movement.  And, this is our textbook.  The History of American Graffiti explores the entire culture of the art form from guys tagging train-cars back in the day to modern day work in cities across the country.  Meet all the players in the game and check out some of their best work in this 400 page book.  If they taught this in college we probably wouldn’t have gone to just the exams in Art History.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
