Chrysa Koukoura's Detailing

Illustration // Thursday, February 20, 2014
With a slight hesitancy in working with color, Chrysa Koukoura uses fine pen on paper with meticulous detail, her aim being to draw the viewer in for a closer look. She loves the simplicity and the restrictiveness of working in black and white, as it requires her to bring something extra out of an image that wouldn’t usually be there had a color been involved. Koukoura has been drawn into nature as a starting point for her drawings.

Whatever days have ended, they have been succeeded by a new age of barbarism, with clear winners and losers...

Psychedelic 1960s: The Poster Art of Victor Moscoso

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Today, we complete our portfolio showcases on the "Big 5" the artists most synonymous with San Francisco's psychedelic poster art scene of the 1960s. Victor Moscoso is a legend of course, with his Chambers Brothers poster being the cover of the March 2014 issue of Juxtapoz, but more so, his work to us is the signature look of psychedelic poster art. From found imagery, to nudes, kaliedescope eyes, and stunning summer color blends, this is what psychedelia looks to us.
