Pick Me Up 2014 @ Somerset House, London

Design // Friday, April 25, 2014
It seems about right. We noticed on April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer's Instagram that he did a t-shirt for DC Shoes and Pick Me Up 2014, one of the best if not THE BEST graphic arts festivals in the world. And what seems right about it is that we learned about Rementer's work at the festival a few years back. Pick Me Up is held annually at the Somerset House in London, and basically get the right people together to show the right kind of graphic and illustrative and design arts.

New Work From Winnie Truong

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 25, 2014
Winnie Truong draws hair better than anyone, and her subjects are soulful and strange, but the way we categorize them in our minds says more about us than them.

WInnie is featured in our May, 2014 issue and her "Rites of Passage" exhibition at Galleri Benoni in Denmark just closed this week!

"Big Mother," a New Book by Raymond Lemstra

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 25, 2014
Dutch artist and illustrator Raymond Lemstra, who we interviewed back in December, has recently come out with a new book published by Nobrow. Inspired by primitive art, Raymond Lemstra focuses on using the most basic components of drawing to evoke a visceral human response. The world Lemstra continues to build with every drawing is both subdued and wonderfully rich, full of mystery and totemic power...
