Pardee's Pick: Halloween Issue Portrait Outtakes by Chloe Rice

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
One of the best parts of working on the Halloween issue was editing it. Evan, myself and Trent, the art director, spent weeks tightening up the layout, moving articles around, coming up with a color scheme, deleting all of the "umms", "likes" and awkward pauses from everyones interviews...

New Swampy Prints

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
The elusive and increasingly cult-icon Swampy just released his first product in quite some time, two new prints through Paper Monster. I Like Disappearing and Owl of Yawn are available now. And as Paper Monster notes, "Before releasing this edition of prints, he kept them locked in the closet of an abandoned house owned by an infamous cult in Oakland."

Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus build a Ghost House

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
This strange building looking similar to something out of a Dr. Seuss novel is the result of covering the structure in huge blocks of polystyrene with resin and adding a heavy coat of white paint on top. Used as a contemporary arts space, the idea for the building was created by French artists, Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus.

Erotic Works by Aaron Nagel

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Its difficult not to fall in absolute adoration when it comes to the paintings of San Francisco based Aaron Nagel. His realistic portraiture is both sinful and innocent, hinting at religious iconography, while playing with erotic seduction, they are everything I hope to see in gorgeous provocative realism.

The Works of Rik Lee

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
A couple new tattooed renderings from Rik Lee, an artist that lives and draws in Melbourne, Australia. He works with grey lead pencils, watercolours and his computer creating beautiful illustrations with tattoo undertones. When he’s not drawing Rik tries not to fall off his skateboard and enjoys talking in detail about the weather. In the future he intends to draw more, travel more, get more tattoos, drive a ’67 Chevy Impala and move down the coast with his girl and his dog.

Gorgeously realistic work from Singapore based illustration and design studio Kittozutto. Featuring an array of lust-worthy ladies, conceptualized imagery and liquid anatomy renditions, there is no shortage of skill or talent coming out of this portfolio.

Illustration // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
We came across some of Marco Mazzoni's new moleskin sketches for his upcoming show at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle. This piece, “The Moralist”, out of colored pencils and pen on paper from his moleskin, is specifically for his show, “The River of Milk”, opening October 12th. Can't wait to see what else he has in store.

Bryn Perrot: Carved Wood Tattoo Flash

Tattoo // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
“My mind does not wander when I carve; I make for purpose, not from artistic representation. I have focus when I work, which is a relief from my otherwise scattered thoughts. Carving feels like real work: something is being physically accomplished. Each cut made gets me closer to the next image within the larger scene. I simply like making a good image, a strong image. I started getting tattooed seven years ago and started working in a tattoo shop four years ago....

Preview: Jason Shawn Alexander @ 101/Exhibit, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 02, 2012
[sic] is a new series of large-scale works by Los Angeles based artist Jason Shawn Alexander. They are his most direct and personal paintings to date. The dramatic narratives that are a signature of his work are yielding to the intensity of the figure itself, to the portrait itself.
