Sculptures Made of Flowers for Bloemencorso

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Have thousands of dahlias, will make sculptures. You don't need to wait for the Rose Bowl Parade to see some amazing floats. You can just see the Bloemencorso festival in the Netherlands, where floats are created with thousands of flowers. The colors and structures are very impressive, and quite unbelievable. 

The Works of Gabriel Moreno

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Madrid-based Gabriel Moreno's psychedelic figural images almost read like streams of consciousness. With drastic color gradients and multi-layered imagery that both emerge from and envelop his figures, Moreno creates dreamlike scenes in which his subjects' thoughts seem to bleed through their skin.

The Works of Cecilia Carlstedt

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Combining the linear precision of graphite portraits with the gestural dynamism of watercolor, Swedish illustrator Cecilia Carlstedt creates ethereal paintings that maintain visual roots in the boldness of graphic design. Her meticulously controlled ink blots and splashes create a stunning illusion of her subjects flickering in and out of focus before our very eyes.

Paintings by Tom Burckhardt

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
Tom Burckhardt's paintings on cast plastic supports occupy a delicate place in contemporary painting that is self-aware of the discourse surrounding the long-established medium, with many subtle touches to the surfaces reflecting a sense absurdity which accompanies imagery that balances between abstract and representational.

The Tattooed Man

Tattoo // Monday, November 12, 2012
Interesting political piece from Billy Morrow Jackson (1926-2006) of Uncle Sam tattooed with the faces of the "Birmingham Four." This piece, entitled The Tattooed Man, is part of a series of civil rights drawings that were created from 1962-1964, though it still has tremendous implications today (both for civil rights and tattoo).

The Works & Film of Julia Pott

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 11, 2012
Julia Pott is an illustrator from Brooklyn, NY who "employs awkward animated characters to act out her inner confusions." Something about her layered patterning and lumpy figures makes for a really compelling effect, and because it's the weekend, we threw in a bizarre little short film of hers too. Enjoy!

Michael Jordan Apple Macbook Decal

Juxtapoz // Sunday, November 11, 2012
Nobody really needs this, but Michael Jordan circa mid-1980s, gold chains flying, cursive Chicago jersey wearing, flying through the air to dunk as your MacBook sticker? Yes, sign us up. The vinyl decal sticker is available now, and to be honest, who doesn't want their Apple logo dunked by Air?
