Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 30, 2013
Filmmaker, artist, and Beautiful Loser Mike Mills has the distinguished title of being the final album cover designer for the Beastie Boys and their 2011 LP, Hot Sauce Committtee Part Two. As Mills told us in the June 2013 issue, there were many ideas and outtakes from the Hot Sauce sessions, but the final became the abstract, Vexillology-inspired color pattern you see today.

Juxtapoz Exclusive: Thomas Campbell Work In Progress: Part One

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 30, 2013
We are excited to bring you an exclusive video from one of our favorites, Thomas Campbel this morning! In December of 2012, Campbell collaborated with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History on "Work in Progress" where, for eleven weeks, museum visitors could watch as Thomas invented, deconstructed, and reimagined a landscape of mythic characters and stories. The result is his most ambitious work to date: a 75-foot-long three-dimensional mural in the museum's main gallery. This video, directed by Tiffany Campbell, captures the process from first stroke of paint to last and all the surprises in-between.
