    Here is our 12ozProphet Forum Shot of the Day. This 'Manhajam' piece was painted by Jamer in 2006 but the style is so classic it easily looks like it could have been painted in 1986.

  • 12ozProphet Photo of the Day: Union Square Pizza Truck

    This shot was taken by the 12oz team. The last post about the Abstractions show opening tonight made me think about this pizza truck that parks at Union Square in New York.
