The Work of David Cook

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 13, 2012
I'm always enthralled and inspired by the intricate pattern work in David Cook's illustrations. The combination of his brightly colored snakes and skulls in fishnets, surrounded by rays of spirographic line-work are drawn with meticulous and repetitive perfection, creating strangely beautiful completed pieces by this New York based, colorblind artist.

We always enjoy the simple, clever, witty, and whatever complimentary adjective we can bestow on British illustrator Ian Stevenson, who loves to distort our collective pop-culture with a twist of wicked satire. His newest solo show, Made In Broken Britain, is currently on view at The Outsiders space in Newcastle, England.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Ah, this is so weird and uncomfortable we are going to order one of each.

Or perhaps your girlfriend/boyfriend needs a mini, um, phallus ring? How about an ear earring?

You ever see a classic portrait painting and think that the subject looks nothing like people look today? I do this all the time. Girl with a Pearl Earring?

Artist Dorothee Golz has taken modern bodies and scences and mashed them with the faces of some of the most classic of portrait art. At times, the results are fantastic.
