Ian Ingram's 'Ignoring' and Other Self-Portraits

Illustration // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
'Here is the moment Ian closed his eyes.  Thus began the chapters of Ignoring.  Life was too much for him and he found that shutting his eyes, shutting the windows, turning off the noise, and sleeplessly marching in one direction was the way he decided to deal with it.  In the process of ignoring he found a familiar resonance and it occurred to him that this is how his culture copes with the greatest problems it faces.  They Ignore them....'

Works by Andy Gilmore

Illustration // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
We'll never tire of the far out, mathematical stylings of draftsman, designer, musician and Juxtapoz Psychedelic cover artist Andy Gilmore. Gilmore 'explores physical properties and proportions of sound and light in his work. He performs through the synchronization of form and color, in order to create his geometric works of art. Being a musician, Andy’s inspired by the physics of sound and acoustic.'

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Sometimes the best part about skate deck art is when an unexpected artist get the right graphic created. I wouldn't think of British artist David Shrigley to be one of the skate graphic types, but his fantastic "Politicians Make Me Sick" deck for our friends at Park Life in San Francisco works just right. Made in a limited quantity of 150, the deck is going for $125 on the Park Life site.

Kahn & Selesnick's "Mars: Adrift On the Hourglass Sea" Series

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
We love a good conceptual photo series, and the Kahn & Selesnick's fantastically visionary Mars: Adrift On the Hourglass Sea photography series is one of our favorites we have seen in quite some time. Envisioning an expedition and civilization on Mars, the work focuses on societies in crisis and on the brink of major change, and although the work appears alien, the DYI and recycled nature of some of the materials in each photo makes everything appear familiar.
