Healing Tool is art designed for people in cars. A temporary public art installation using digital billboards on interstate freeways. The goal is to provide a moment of temporary relief and unexpected beauty during the daily grind of commuting. The piece builds on a body of work which simulates digital experiences in the real world. In this case, simulating the Photoshop Healing Tool to replace or patch over the landscape which is blocked by the billboard.

Lynn Bianchi's Spaghetti and Dessert Eaters http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/spaghetti-eaters http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/spaghetti-eaters Lynn Bianchi's Spaghetti and Dessert Eaters
The scenarios Lynn Bianchi constructs emphasize the irony of body-consciousness. Small and heavy women cavort nude in celebratory displays of eating and dressing, challenging our ideals on weight, beauty and sexuality. Playing off Vargas pin-up girls, dress-up plays on sexuality, her work shows that every woman has import, in a nude spaghetti-eating way.

Japanese Ukioy-e Woodblock Prints of Star Wars Scenes http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/japanese-ukioy-e-woodblock-prints-of-star-wars-scenes http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/japanese-ukioy-e-woodblock-prints-of-star-wars-scenes Japanese Ukioy-e Woodblock Prints of Star Wars Scenes
We've been really into woodblock printing lately... and we've always been into Star Wars. The Rhythm Project is taking characters from Star Wars and depicting them using the ukioy-e art of Japanese woodblock printing. A cultural mashup of sorts, the prints focus on famous scenes like the epic battle on Hoth and Darth Vader brandishing a lightsaber. Officially licensed by Lucas Films, the prints are available through the Japanese crowdfunding site, Makuake.

Takato Yamamoto's "Heisei Estheticism" http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/takato-yamamotos-heisei-estheticism http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/takato-yamamotos-heisei-estheticism Takato Yamamoto's
Takato Yamamoto's artwork is the brilliant, heavy-lidded daughter of illustration, sex and violence. Yamamoto's lush linework and exacting compositions depict young asian women in serene moments studded with darker narrative punchlines. Scenes of bondage and violence bleed slowly into the image as you look longer, yet Yamamoto never depicts any acts of violence--it is either impending or just completed...

"Growing up in Sweden I spent a lot of time in the forest but my entire adult life living in the city. Through my experiments with dancers and circus artists I came back to explore nature and, maybe because of that childhood connection, it triggered a great sense of adventure in me."

The Guardian Made a Brilliant Short Film on the Eighth Man ever to play Ronald McDonald http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/the-guardian-made-a-brilliant-short-film-on-the-eighth-man-ever-to-play-ronald-mcdonald http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/the-guardian-made-a-brilliant-short-film-on-the-eighth-man-ever-to-play-ronald-mcdonald The Guardian Made a Brilliant Short Film on the Eighth Man ever to play Ronald McDonald
This is just way too good. The Guardian recently went to Las Vegas to visit with the "eighth man" to ever officially be Ronald McDonald. Joe Maggard was McDonald's mascot from 1995 to 2007, and in this short, you see him transform himself from a retired, pool swimming man to a spokesperson for a major corporation. There are so many subtle shifts here, from the Guardian hinting at a lonely existence, to Maggard's own change of personality when speaking about putting on the costume. Brilliantly shot with a most-interesting subject. This is the Chief Happiness Officer.

Jean André "Mauvaise Réputation" @ HVW8 Gallery, Berlin http://www.juxtapoz.com/illustration/jean-andre-mauvaise-reputation-hvw8-gallery-berlin http://www.juxtapoz.com/illustration/jean-andre-mauvaise-reputation-hvw8-gallery-berlin Jean André
Jean André’s “gentleman art” balances saucy and minimalistic representations of women, creating images that read as both gentlemen’s pulp illustration and satirical tableaux. His influences range from Matisse to Gainsbourg to Drake as well as erotic magazines from the 80’s. On August 2nd, at HVW8 Gallery's Berlin space, Jean will open "Mauvaise Réputation," that will feature a collaboration with tattoo artists as well as work inspired by classic flash art.
