Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Have you ever showed a uninformed relative a Cy Twombly painting? Did they tell you it looked like scribble and they could do it? Of course, any right-minded Twombly fan would be offended at such a glib insult.

The Art of Boneface

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 20, 2012
Everything that's right with the action-gore work of Boneface just might be the same things that make him perfectly wrong for any other creative endeavor. We love this work, and loved it so much that we featured it in the newest issue of Juxtapoz, our September 2012 issue. The titles of his humorously brutal illustrations, like 'Actionfu*kers' or 'Over My Dead Body' are so perfectly matched with the bloody, gruesome rendered narratives and comics he creates.

Skeletal Fashion by Pauline Darley

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 20, 2012
We have touched on the idea of high fashion using skeletal make-up styles for shoots, and we are especially impressed by French photographer Pauline Darley for Ever Magazine, where model Clémentine Levy is touched up with a ghostly look. Elegant and subtle. 

The Work of Mayumi Haryoto

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 20, 2012
Mayumi Haryoto creates both personal and commercial illustrative work that is both a mix of dreamy fantasy and comic book inspired. The Jakarta, Indonesia-based artist says of her work, "I feel like I’m still finding my own voice. That’s the part I’m still trying to develop. In fact, I wish I would always have something to develop."

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 20, 2012
Turn Me On, Dammit! is an independent movie made by the Norwegian documentary filmmaker Jannicke Systad Jacobsen. This will be Jacobsen's debut fiction film and it looks to be a poetic and hilarious reflection upon female pubescent coming of age and understanding of sexuality, a story normally told from the male perspective.
