Juxtapoz x Squarespace: Beyond the Cover

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 01, 2015
Chris Ware is the quiet and subtle icon of graphic novels, the author and artist behind Acme Novelty Library series, Jimmy Corrigan, The Smartest Kid on Earth and Building Stories (the latter title having taken a decade to create, one of the most ambitious graphic novels ever made). There are many adjectives, proclamations and praise I can add about Chris, but the reason why we love him, why he is the cover of the May 2015 issue, is his art of storytelling...

We have been doing a ton of research in lieu of our trip to Tokyo, and we were looking into aritsts of the Nihonga style, and ran across the contemporary artist Ikenaga Yasunari that we have writting about.

Great American Pinup @ LOUIS K. MEISEL GALLERY, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 31, 2015
So, they were kind of dirty back in the late 1940s and 1950s, huh? Louis K Meisel Gallery in NYC is set to host the "Great American Pin-Up,"  an exhibition that features "an outstanding selection of oils by Gil Elvgren, watercolors by Alberto Vargas, and pastels by Rolf Armstrong. The 47-piece collection contains many rare oversized pin-ups that include compositions of the ‘girl next door’ to scenes that verge on fantasy." We aren't sure why the Mel Ramos painting from 2013 is up on the site, so maybe this show collects a half-century of pin-ups?
