Illustrated Works by Zoran Pungercar

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 03, 2012
We featured Zoran Pungercar's work a little while ago in 2011, and now we're back featuring more. Here are some of Pungercar's more recent illustrated works for zines and show posters. His folk art aesthetic and attentive yet imperfect renderings simplify characters into compelling narrative icons that shudder with dark undertones and mysterious and pseudo-mythical imagery, and he does show posters for some great musicians like Tune-Yards to boot.

Tower Wiener Dog

Graffiti // Friday, August 03, 2012
"Fell up on some hard times, as we all do sometimes. Searched for employment and landed a 9-5 at the local PetSmart® on Tuesday. This morning was shadowing someone as they trimmed nails and cut various breeds of dogs hair. Was left on my own for a bit and did a couple dogs nails, then a lady dropped off this wiener dog for nail trimming, got carried away and shaved TOWER into the side of it. I no longer work there."

Getting Hairy with Lara Mendes

Illustration // Friday, August 03, 2012
Lara Mendes' fine linework is perfectly suited to her representation of what seems to be a favorite subject - hair. We like this small series of freehand black and white illustrations done on a Wacom tablet. Mendes is an illustrator, designer and 2D animator from Porto, Portugal.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 02, 2012
Alex Pardee is curating our October 2012 Halloween issue. Dave Correia is an artist you are going to see interviewed in said issue. Dave has a show opening tonight, August 2, at FIFTY24PDX in Portland. Alex tells us, "Contrary to what might hunt you down in your nightmares after seeing some of his work, Zerofriends' own Dave Correia isn't a scary dude. Fortunately for our eyeballs, however, his new collection of paintings is still frighteningly beautiful." Preview after the jump . . .

"The owner of this house is a man that works a few on everything, but not really on something. Naples is something like that.”  Spanish muralist, Escif, made this unobtrusive painting blending into the scenery on the side of a home in Naples.

Sigur Rós Mystery Film Experiment: "Varúð" by Ryan McGinley

Music // Thursday, August 02, 2012
Nothing gets you feeling serene more than a girl barefoot skipping through Manhattan with sunshine golden hair while Sigur Ros' beautiful music is playing and Ryan McGinley providing the visuals. We think that pretty much covers it. From the looks of it, this is part of Sigur Ros Mystery Film Experiment, and it may be the most epic 8 minutes you spend today.
