Music // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
When we have been looking back at the music videos we loved in 2012, there is a part of us that consider the artist and track.

Best of 2012: Ballpoint Stunner from Samuel Silva

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Here is what we wrote at the time: Yes, that is right. This is a ballpoint pen drawing. Samuel Silva, the artist, used 8 different colors taking 30 hours to complete it. No other media. Simply 100 % ballpoint pen. Silva is Portugal-based attorney who does art as a "hobby." I don't think much more needs to be said. Just look at it.

Alex Ziv: New Work and Detail

Illustration // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
'My recent work has been a conversation I've been having internally for over a decade. Utilizing a visual rhetoric from my childhood and fantasies of motorcycle subcultures to develop a body of work that demonstrates what I feel, has changed my life for the better as well as how it's changed the world around me.
