Psychopathic Killer Cartoon Characters

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Artist Dan Luvisi has taken all of our favorite loveable cartoon characters and re-imagined them as psychopathic killers. We are a little hurt that he would do such a thing, how could he do that to our beloved Kermit? And the Cookie Monster?? Well, at least that one makes sense. He is an addict and has a problem. We have no words for Donald Duck.

Lettering Pays Tribute to 26 of the Greatest Scientific Innovations

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 20, 2014
We will be the first to admit that our science knowledge is minimal, perhaps that's why we work for an art magazine. Or maybe America doesn't have the best track record for teaching its students math and science. Either way, we wish we remembered more from our science classes and are glad Neil Degrasse Tyson and Netflix are around to occasionally drop some late-night science knowledge. This project from Delhi-based student Khyati Trehan aims to explore scientific diagrams and take form integration to more complex territories. It looks at experimenting with typography, lettering and illustration, paying tribute to the history of science.
