Vault // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
For the rest of the month, we are looking back on some of our favorite features from our print edition. Today, we look at the February 2013 cover story with James Jean. At the time, James Jean retired, then didn’t really retire at all. In a similar vein of Michael Jordan, who retired from one phase of his career only to return stronger and more well-equipped to dominate once again, Jean left the illustration world behind in 2008, redefining himself as one of the most talented and intriguing fine artists of his generation...

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Originally published on January 4th, 2013: The great website Empty Kingdom found a good one in the sketchbook art of Estonian artist, Anton Vill. A great mix of both a lowbrow style and incredible craft, Vill's work reminds us of the sketchbook of one of the great animated movies you would find from European production company. Come to think of it, maybe its been Vill the whole time...

Update: Paintings by Dan Voinea

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
We love Dan Voinea's suspension of belief, his capturing of movement and timeless style. "Momentary rise of reason constitutes a deliberated exercise in sanity and the absurd in the realm of the surreal. By means of basic, sparse compositions and frugal coloring, the artworks depict every-day stereotypes in which the strange detail contaminates the apparent reality with the absurd." - Dan Voinea
