Illustration // Tuesday, February 17, 2015
Thomas Hedger is a UK artist, and his illustrative style could be described as the love child of Parra and Peter Max, but with a twist that is all his own, unique subjects, and a distinctly strong color sensibility. Check out his website for a page full of fun animations.

New Work by Megan Whitmarsh

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 16, 2015
We absolutely love Megan Whitmarsh (featured in Jux in August 2007) and were reminded by Little Paper Planes to check out her latest work created over the last couple of years. Last we checked, Whitmarsh was creating soft sculptures of art supplies like Sharpies and aerosol cans, and she’d been softening the art magazine industry with fabric recreations of Art Forum and Art in America.

Hozier’s song "Take Me to Church" featuring the renowned British Royal Ballet dancer, Sergei Polunin. A principal dancer with The Stanislavsky Music Theatre, The Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre in Russia, the 25-year old Polunin is incredibly gifted and captivating to watch. The dancer appears to defy gravity at times as he leaps and spins in what looks to be an abandoned church with natural light radiating in.
