Artist Spotlight on the grotesque body horror visions of Riley Schmitz. Riley Schmitz works in many mediums and disciplines, from animation to illustration to comic books, but all are united by a clinical fascination with the body’s ability to bleed, excrete, and decay. He’s that kid in the class. But as any good interdimensional bondage monster knows, there’s pleasure to be found in pain. Appropriately, Schmitz’ art can be found in a new Hellraiser comics anthology to be released later this month.
Netherlands-born illustrator Iris Compiet discusses her fascinations with folklore and her upcoming art book Faeries of the Faultlines. Iris Compiet is a professional painter, concept artist, and storybook illustrator from the Netherlands who first came to my attention when she volunteered to be a part of last Summer’s fantasy and science fiction-themed Yay! Legends Every Day Original Art Series. Compiet was a natural fit for the project.
Shots from Gothic Tropic’s performance at The Resident in DTLA. Indie pop band Gothic Tropic was recently named by The Guardian as an artist to watch for in 2017. This, following their studio time with Ryan Adams, or their touring days withBørns and Charli XCX. An equally warm reception was found in our Chris Camargo as he scoped their June 6th headlining show at The Resident, which was backed up by Kid Bloom and Madame Gandhi.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
