Feature: A Conversation with John Van Hamersveld

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 12, 2012
John Van Hamersveld is an icon in Southern California culture, or maybe more aptly described as­ a creator of icons, credited with many graphics and images that identify the West Coast. His poster for Bruce Brown’s classic surf film The Endless Summer is an image that nearly everyone has seen, an emblem for surf culture itself (the poster was included in LACMA’s Pacific Standard Time Exhibition California Design: 1935-1965). . .

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 12, 2012
We have long been fans of Gregory Euclide, from his paintings, sculptures, installations, and cover artwork for Bon Iver. It is his newest project, and subsequent print series, that may be his most impressive.

Smithe One's Illustrations

Illustration // Thursday, July 12, 2012
Brick and Meat collection is a series of dismembered humans, elegantly adorned with intestines by Smithe One. Smithe’s compositional style is disturbing, yet nostalgic. With the use of retro hues and soft coloring, the pieces have a slight nostalgic edge. The motif of collection falls on self-destruction and the dismemberment from soul, body, wants and needs...

Sculpture Art by Chun Sung-Myung

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 12, 2012
Fantastic, intense works by Korea sculpture artist, Chun Sung-Myung. The faces are of his own, and the photorealistic quality makes them even more eerie to stare at. We did a bit of looking around the web to see what everyone was saying about the work, and we heard a lot of Aphex Twin references. We say ... good call.

Mars Panorama by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 12, 2012
Courtesy of NASA's panoramic camera (known as the Pancam) on the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, we now have a new view of the Martian landscape. It is quite an incredible image of our much fantasized about neighbor in the solar system. Here are some details from NASA themselves: "This scene recorded from the mast-mounted color camera includes the rover's own solar arrays and deck in the foreground, providing a sense of sitting on top of the rover and taking in the view."

Frank Frazetta (NSFW)

Erotica // Thursday, July 12, 2012
In 1964, Frazetta started producing paintings for paperback editions of adventure books. His first cover for the pulp fiction novel Conan the Barbarian caused a sensation - numerous people bought the book for its cover alone. From this point on, Frazetta's work was in great demand. During this period he also did covers for other paperback editions of classic books, pen and ink illustrations, and of course Vampirella!
