Chris (Simpsons artist)

Juxtapoz // Sunday, August 26, 2012
Recently gathering a lot of attention across the internet is Chris aka Simpsons artist who caricatures fictional characters and celebrities. His career was allegedly inspired by watching The Simpsons hence the title. The writings and drawings he publishes on his Facebook page are fascinating, dark, and laughter-inducing (an uncomfortable type of laughter).

David Byrne Makes Bike Racks

Juxtapoz // Sunday, August 26, 2012
Any daily New York cyclist will tell you there are a serious lack of bike racks in all the boroughs. Everyone’s lugging these massive chains around so they can lock their bikes to something not intended for locking, trees work well. Any new bike racks mean a win for cyclists, whether Talking Heads lead singer, David Byrne, designed them or not, in this case he did.

Illustrations by Ricardo Fumanal

Illustration // Sunday, August 26, 2012
We were doing some research last night on illustrators, and came across the great works of London-based, Ricardo Fumanal, who is almost more of a surrealist than any genre we could define. Sometimes, a good graphite sureal scene is just what we need in the morning.

France-based artist, Shaka aka Marchal Mithouard, uses a combination of graffiti elements in his sculptural 3D paintings. Really enjoy the portraiture work.
