Wriggles & Robbins put together this short stop-motion film to promote life-drawing classes at east London's Book Club.

What's The Time?: Beastie Boys on Being Stupid

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
We are now officially in Beastie Boys month in conjunction with our very special June 2013 issue, and we kick off the festivities with this fantastic animated treatment of a classic BB's interview from 1985. PBS' Digital Studios took the interview and put it through their "Blank on Blank" series, and the result is the Beastie Boys animated by Patrick Smith, saying things like "There's a way we talk and it includes profanity. We never figured we'd be arrested for it." Enjoy!

Nicola Verlato: The Making of "Burzum"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
This past December 2012, we featured the works of Nicola Verlato in our print magazine. Because he was so articulate and detailed in his expression, we asked him to interview fellow Italian artist Fulvio di Piazza for our April 2013 issue. Because he was so good at that, when Verlato sent us a video of his process for creating the magnificent painting, Burzum, we want to show people how a painter really gets down. 

Art by Andy Paerels

Illustration // Thursday, May 02, 2013
Andy Paerels is an artist and illustrator based in Philadelphia, PA. Her illustrations play to a young, graphic sensibility, depicting stylish characters in a flux of monochromatic linework. We've shown Paerels' work in our erotica section, and her illustrations all have a kind of sexual charge, capturing a youthful dynamism in these fresh graphics.  

Universe Art: A Hurricane on Saturn

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
This incredible image was taken last November by the Cassini spacecraft of a hurricane on the surface of Saturn. Launched in 1997 to study Saturn, the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft arrived in 2004 and has been primarily studying the Great White Spot, a massive storm that occurs every 30 years. The Hurricane image is one of the first sunlit detailed views of Saturn's north pole. The eye of the storm is approximately 1,250 miles wide and spinning about 330 miles per hour!
