Update: Paintings by Alex Roulette

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
Alex Roulette's paintings are both realistic yet subtly surreal. A strangely dreamlike landscape is occupied by young boys, as if recalling some idealized, American summer vacation. Yet the houses seem over simplified and out of place, as if reduced in detail and pasted on to the rolling meadows that span the scene. This morning we are taking a look through his more recent work!

The 2013 Zundert Flower Parade

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
The largest flower parade in the world (we were unaware of any) takes place in the small town of Zundert, Netherlands on the first Sunday of September. Thousands of spectators were greeted with over twenty amazing gigantic floats made with flowers. The incredible floats included everything from MC Escher and Monet-inspired to Aztec rulers and giant snorting pigs! Sounds like fun!

'Tom Waits for No One,' an Animated Short from 1979

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
We are celebrating our October 2013; Tom Waits issue in the office this month and begin with this short rotoscoped movie staring Tom from 1979. Produced and directed by John Lam, it was among the first music videos created specifically for the up and coming MTV market. Inspired by his performance at the Roxy in 1977, the short was unfortunately never released commercially and didn't see the light of day until the advent of YouTube. The combination of rotoscoping and pencil test used in the short was innovative at the time and helped Lamb win an Academy Award for Scientific and Technical Achievement. The production team also consisted of future animators for the Simpsons, Monster’s Inc. and Disney!

Paintings by Nigel Cooke

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
Today we take a look through the work of British painter Nigel Cooke. 'Acknowledging the velocity of painting, the vitality of the impact of the paint iteslf and the perverse psychology of the strokes that make it, Cooke's paintings deliriously push and pull us from layers of depth and detail to extreme surfaces of impasto...'
