Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 11, 2013
This was a great thing to see this morning, some wonderfully nostalgic illustrations from Belgian artist, Anton Van Hertbruggen. They look like old LL Bean catalog illustrations, showing both outdoor and classic wilderness scenes that look straight out of a time machine. Come to think of it, if LL Bean was looking for an artist . . .

The Work of Manolo García Carpinteria Artistica

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 11, 2013
We came across a few photos of an impressive giant wooden sculpture this morning. After some research we discovered that the work belongs to Manolo Garcia, a Spanish carpenter who specializes in not only interior design, but float building and what Google translate tells us are bonfires...

Shinichi Maruyama's Nude Dancers in Motion

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 11, 2013
Japanese artist Shinichi Maruyama captured the 'beauty of both the human body's figure and its motion' by combining 10,000 individual photographs of each dancer. "By putting together uninterrupted individual moments, the resulting image as a whole will appear to be something different from what actually exits. With regard to these two viewpoints, a connection can be made to a human being's perception of presence in life."

Body Painting by Johannes Stötter

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 11, 2013
We are enjoying the amazing and somewhat bizarre body painting of Johannes Stötter. Johannes often camouflages his subjects into the their environments in a style reminiscent of Liu Bolin. His other work includes turning the human body into fruit and vegetables...

Music Video: Yo La Tengo's Animated "Ohm"

Music // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Yo La Tengo is one of the last true American indie bands from the heyday of the 1990s that is still together, making excellent music and putting on a fantastic live show. They also have a bit of fun with their image, and recently had "Simpsons" writer Donick Cary direct an animated, bizarre video for the track "Ohm", with animation done by Sugarshack Animation. The video follows a classroom instructional on what Yo La Tengo is. And there seems to be psychedelics involved, but that is just a guess we have.
