Art Riot Hits The Streets

The first edition of Fargo’s underground art magazine Art Riot hit the streets in late April and I’m happy to see so many artists I admire getting their work out there in a new and interesting way.

Art Riot is part comic, part Mad Magazine, part art portfolio and a whole lot of zine-y goodness.
