Working as a commercial illustrator for the past decade plus, I've designed hundreds of T-shirts for numerous companies, bands and individuals. But if I had to pick my very favorite shirt that I've ever designed, it would be the one you're looking at above these words. I drew this at my kitchen table when I was 12 years old.

Walking Into a Gif: Installations by Dominique Pétrin http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/walking-into-a-gif-installations-by-dominique-pétrin http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/walking-into-a-gif-installations-by-dominique-pétrin Walking Into a Gif: Installations by Dominique Pétrin
Have you ever tried walking into an 8-bit wonderland? An animated gif? Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Dominique Pétrin creates these fantastic psychedelic, immersive installations that seem to swallow you whole when you walk into them. I don't do drugs, but if I was accidentally dosed at a party, I would prefer Pétrin's style of hypnosis.

Some Verbal Expressions Concerning the Painting http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/some-verbal-expressions-concerning-the-painting http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/some-verbal-expressions-concerning-the-painting Some Verbal Expressions Concerning the Painting
The painting considers this question: Where was the universe made? Fireworks: they are objects like ourselves. They have their existence in the shapes and colors they contain. But they are going to change when lit, as we will change at some moment in our lives, when we change from life to whatever comes next...

In her series “The Unseen”, Lebanese photographer Lara Zankoul pushes the boundaries of photographic surrealism through her constructed life-size sets. Strictly through the use of her camera and with no digital manipulation, Zankoul creates dreamlike images where water is used to depict contrasting characteristics of the characters she photographs...

Zio Ziegler x Vans Shoe Release Party @ Proof Lab, Mill Valley http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/zio-ziegler-x-vans-shoe-release-party-proof-lab-mill-valley http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/zio-ziegler-x-vans-shoe-release-party-proof-lab-mill-valley Zio Ziegler x Vans Shoe Release Party @ Proof Lab, Mill Valley
Zio Ziegler has a busy weekend. If you so happen to live in Northern California, you can make it a Zio weekend. As we first noted, Zio has an opening at Jules Maeght Gallery in San Francisco on March 6. Now on March 7, at the great Proof Lab shop in Mill Valley, California, Zio and Vans will have a  shoe release party with live music by The Strange Land, a BBQ, and skating. And because we don't have winters in Northern California anymore, it will be a lovely day for a BBQ.

Alexis Anne Mackenzie "Multiverse" @ Eleanor Harwood Gallery, San Francisco http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/alexis-anne-mackenzie-multiverse-eleanor-harwood-gallery-san-francisco http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/alexis-anne-mackenzie-multiverse-eleanor-harwood-gallery-san-francisco Alexis Anne Mackenzie
Alexis Anne Mackenzie's new show Multiverse explores how minor fluctuations in circumstance, or a slight rearrangement of the same elements, can create a wholly different entity. The term Multiverse is the blanket term for parallel universe theories. Most of Mackenzie's work over the past year has investigated living a sort of double or split life. The new direction in her work started with "Synthesis": her project-space show at EHG less than a year ago. We are delighted to be showing more of her new works.
