Juxtapoz // Monday, December 16, 2013
Maybe you noticed that we covered Grotesk and the design agency he is part of, Doubleday & Cartwright, in the November 2013 print edition of Juxtapoz.

The past colorway was in the traditional Chicago Bulls red/black, and today, Case Studyo and Grotesk release the new "Black & Royal Blue edition" for collectors of all things Michael Jordan and the Nike Air Jordan 1.

Sculptures by Ishibashi Yui

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 16, 2013
Tokyo-based artist Ishibashi Yui's sculptures are unsettling and beautiful. Her figures seem to have submitted to the plants and branches protruding and growing from their bodies, as if they have accepted their fate and are not sure if they even have the ability to fight or prevent the inevitable.

Susanna Majuri's Underwater Worlds

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 16, 2013
Photographer Susanna Majuri builds mythical underwater environments and then photographs female models swimming in, above, and through them. "The water is most remarkable," Susanna says. "It carries bodies. Water is color. The shimmer and the deep green. My challenge is to see the reality in a non-traditional light. When I am shooting pictures, I have a premonition that something strange is about to happen."

Humberto Casas Junca's School Desk Drawings

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 16, 2013
Artist Humberto Casas Junca draws on classic school desks, combining his detailed drawings of violent events in Colombia with Norwegian black metal logos. Maybe if our drawings were this good when we doodled and carved our desks in school we wouldn't have spent so many recesses in time out....but maybe not.

Cong was born in Shanghai in 1978, and he moved to the US when he was 11, and interestingly, graduated from the University of Iowa with degrees in Biology and Art in 2000.

Elderly folks, musicians, and animals find themselves accompanied by a shadow made of bold, solid blocks of color...
