Pardee's Picks: Top 40 Garbage Pail Kid Cards

Top List // Friday, September 28, 2012
As far as I'm concerned, the near-decade long reign of TOPPS' Garbage Pail Kids stickers back in the mid 1980's were the very first "meme". And on top of that, the original 600+ Garbage Pail Kids laid the ground work for a formula that I have repeatedly used throughout my career, and probably won't stop doing so, because the formula is ridiculously fun.

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 28, 2012
We highly recommend checking out Jen Stark's show that opens tonight, September 28, in Los Angeles.

Colored Pencil Drawings by Kate Russo

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 28, 2012
Kate Russo is an artist working out of Rockland, Maine. Her meticulous and detailed colored pencil on graph paper drawings evoke something about her surroundings in the colder and quieter environment of the northeastern United States. Each work unfolds with repetitive and unrelenting replication of a series of marks and patterns requiring a sort of meditative and hyper-focused state.

The Works of Crude Dude illustrator, Jose Angeles

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 28, 2012
For Crude Dude illustrator Jose Angeles, I'm going to let the reviews of his work do the talking... "If there ever was a comic-book equivalent to grindcore music, Jose Gabriel Angeles is it!", "Crude Dude is a great collection of violence, political debates, controversy, honesty, fun and all around whackieness." "Messy art, messy violence and messy nihilism from a cut-rate Mike Diana clone who reeks of high school" Nailed it.

Paul John Ballard's Erotic Energy

Erotica // Thursday, September 27, 2012
In his erotic artwork, Paul John Ballard's chosen media are pencil, acrylic, watercolor and oils. Each female is carefully sketched and 'brought to life'. Each has their own personality, but they all possess the individuality of the artist and his love of anything sensual. High contrast and sharp detail are the two elements that form the basis of his art. Paul chooses certain parts of the figure to create movement and flow, which allows the viewer to feel the strength and energy...
