This morning we feature the sculptural work of Boulder, Colorado-based artist Roger Reutimann. Raised in Switzerland, in his teens Reutimann was first recognized as a classically trained concert pianist before training as a sculptor and artist in Zurich. Believing art lets him communicate an idea on 'a deeper, emotional level,' his influences are drawn from social issues and cultural scrutiny.

The Works of Martin Wittfooth

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 17, 2013
An artist that we have continued to enjoy this year, especially after seeing his work at the Pulse Art Fair in Miami in the Rick Wester Fine Art booth, is NYC-based Martin Wittfooth. In the tradition of great animal painters we have enjoyed in our magazine over the years, whether Walton Ford, Josh Keyes, or Tara Tucker, Wittfooth continues to push the genre and subject matter in subtle, elegant ways. Can't wait to see more in the coming years... 

Breaking Bad: The Chess Game by Known Unknown Design

The entire set is available on Etsy, and features hand-drawn characters, allowing you to manipulate and play the drug game to your liking. With friends. Go get it.
