Music Video: Travis "Moving" by Wriggles & Robins

Music // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
I spent half the morning yesterday trying to interact with Kanye West, and although I like that whole album and visual package that went with it, I coudn't really get to amped on being the slow down DJ. So instead, I found myself enjoying the new video by Wriggles & Robins for Travis' new single, "Moving". The directors noted, "All visuals captured in camera by back projecting the animated story into the breaths of the band. In the same way that you can see your breath on a cold day, we filmed at -1ºC to make the animations appear." Go, watch. 

Self-Dissections by Danny Quirk

Illustration // Monday, July 22, 2013
Massachusetts-based artist Danny Quirk specializes in photo realistic watercolors of anatomical structures, painting what cameras cannot capture with quite as much precision and delicacy as the artist's hand. Quirk's work combines classic poses in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting with a contemporary twist, creating portraits of self-discovery through dissection. This intimate uncovering of the structures that lay beneath the skin mirrors humanity's quest for self-understanding, whether in an emotional, spiritual, or physical sense.

The Juxtapoz staff spent this last weekend (and week) in San Diego at Comic-Con.

David Choe "DVDASA" Podcast w/Juxtapoz @ Comic-Con 2013

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 22, 2013
On Friday evening, at the Juxtapoz x Gentle Giant Studios booth at Comic Con, we held a special issue release signing and live podcast with David Choe and his crew. In celebration of his August 2013 cover story, we had Choe take over the booth for a special airing of his DVDASA podcast, as well as a few print releases and issues to get signed. As expected, a huge crowd came out in support of both Dave, the issue release, and probably because Asa Akira was in our booth...

Music Video: Kanye West "Black Skinhead" by Nick Knight

Music // Monday, July 22, 2013
Kanye West, regardless of how you feel about him, is definitely in tune with proper art direction and collaborative efforts. For the video for this new track, "Black Skinhead," he enlisted director Nick Knight to create an interactive, dark, menacing visual treatment that allows the viewer to slow the track, slow the motion, all the while watching a CG-Kanye with massive necklace perform. Go have some fun...
