The Work of Madrid's NastPlas

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 04, 2012
NastPlas is the collective of two Madrid, Spain based illustrators and digital artists; Dr Franken and Natalia Molinos. At first, we thought the work was burned wax on top of illustration, but we love the way the duo have digitally recreated that sort of uneven surface in their portraits.

Embroidered Portraits by Stacey Page

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 03, 2012
Being that is is Labor Day, we are thinking of things that take a long time to make. So how about taking an old fashioned portrait, and then adding some contemporary flair to it in the vein of Stacey Page. She embroiders over portraits with her own stitching style, adding a bit of color and humor to an otherwise mundane shot.
