Inspired in part by the visual tension of mid-20th century Italian cinematography, Ridley Howard balances optical design and two-dimensional arrangement with elusive narrative. Occasional graphic overtures—large spiraling swaths of pale green, off-kilter skyscrapers, monochromatic playground structures—imbue banal architectural spaces with intrigue, encouraging the viewer to identify the point where fact ends and fiction begins.

The American version of Heavy Metal Magazine began in 1977 as a magazine for adult comics, a blend of dark fantasy, science fiction and erotica. Initially it displayed translations of graphic stories originally published in the French version, Métal Hurlant, and included work by Enki Bilal, Philippe Caza, Guido Crepax, Philippe Druillet, Jean-Claude Forest, Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) and Milo Manara.

Graphite Drawings by Michael Schall http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/graphite-drawings-by-michael-schall http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/graphite-drawings-by-michael-schall Graphite Drawings by Michael Schall
Brooklyn-based artist Michael Shall does not draw from photographs but uses images to "gain an understanding of how certain things are structured." He then uses these s structural understandings to create his imagined worlds where those forms can do whatever he wants them to. "...these forms can do whatever I want them to, and it all looks believable, or almost believable."

Alberto del Pozo's Deities http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/alberto-del-pozos-deities http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/alberto-del-pozos-deities Alberto del Pozo's Deities
The Orichas Collection consists of the series of drawings by Cuban-born artist Alberto del Pozo of the deities of Afro-Cuban Santería. There are approximately 25 orichas in the Santería pantheon, 17 of which were depicted by del Pozo in this series. Santería refers to the Afro-Cuban practice of Lucumí or Regla de Ocha, a religious system originating with the African Yoruba people. The Orichas Collection includes the original pen, ink, and crayon illustrations.

Summer according to Anne Constance Frenoy http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/summer-according-to-anne-constance-frenoy http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/summer-according-to-anne-constance-frenoy Summer according to Anne Constance Frenoy
We were looking through the great New Erotic Photography book by Prestel this morning, and came across the works of Anne Constance Frenoy. Seeing that it is summer, and that Frenoy has a series of works of nudes in summer, and that she is based in Paris where we just came back from, and that she seems to capture a little 1970's nostalgia, we wanted to share them today.

Cliffside Living on the Aegean Sea http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/cliffside-living-on-the-aegean-sea http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/cliffside-living-on-the-aegean-sea Cliffside Living on the Aegean Sea
Or perhaps we should say "conceptual" cliffside living on the Aegean Sea by OPA. "Casa Brutale" by OPA (Open Platform for Architecture)is an insane concept of how to build a living space on a cliff, with amazing staircase ideas, swimming pool, glazed facade and other just fantastic details and minimal looks that would make the dude from Ex Machina jealous.

Maybe the Best Hand Painter You Will See http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/maybe-the-best-hand-painter-you-will-see http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/maybe-the-best-hand-painter-you-will-see Maybe the Best Hand Painter You Will See
Artist Russell Powell has an interesting process: he creates realistic portraits on his hand. I don't think I have ever heard of anything like that before. After he creates this insanely interesting process, he applies his palm to paper to create a "hand-stamping" effect. And as MyModernMet notes, "the stamping showcases Powell’s unique fingerprints and will always remind us from where his beautiful images originated." Sweet stuff.

Juxtapoz is very excited this month to have one of our favorite painters, the great Seattle-based artist Mary Iverson on the cover of August 2015. Although perhaps not overtly political, the August 2015 issue is our look at some of the best artists in the world's approach to environmental issues. From climate change to extinction, using Earth materials to challenging conventional means of production, we gathered an eclectic group of artists that are inspiring and progressive.

Mira Cuba: The Cuban Poster Art from 1959 http://www.juxtapoz.com/design/mira-cuba-the-cuban-poster-art-from-1959 http://www.juxtapoz.com/design/mira-cuba-the-cuban-poster-art-from-1959 Mira Cuba: The Cuban Poster Art from 1959
Many eras have passed in Cuba since Fidel Castro took office in 1959 after the Revolution, but the special character of the graphic art spawned in that chaotic, fertile moment has endured, as this volume shows. In Cuba, posters were, and continue to be, popular tools to disseminate ideas, to encourage the Cuban people in the construction of a new society and to spread information on government programs and/or propaganda...

Some people paint portraits, and others (or in this case, one other) cut layer upon layer of wire mesh to create a portrait. Korean artist Seung Mo Park starts with a photograph then superimposes it over layers of wire with a projector, and then starts snipping away! We've posted the impressive wire work of Seungo Mo Park before, examining his flawless sculptures...
