Illustrations by Ugo Gattoni

Illustration // Monday, August 27, 2012
Ugo Gattoni is a Paris-based artist who graduated from the EPSAA in Paris in 2010 with a degree in graphic design. Gattoni has quickly gained a reptuation for his highly detailed and surreal black and white drawings, and his first major exhibition included an enormous wall-sized drawing at 33' long and 6' high rendered solely in black fine-liner pen.

Optical Illusions from Istvan Orosz

Illustration // Monday, August 27, 2012
Born in Hungary in 1951, Istvan Orosz is a master craftsman of design, working in mediums as varied as stage design, animation, film direction, printmaking, and illustration. This series of etched images from "Ship Of Fools" recalls the style of old world etchings but with a technical twist: they are optical illusions, each work containing a hidden skull in its composition.

Mimi Leung's Explosion of Color

Illustration // Monday, August 27, 2012
Mimi Leung is a Melbourne-based artist and illustrator who loves color, fun, and movement. Since her first solo exhibition in 2008, Leung has been making a real impact with her explosively colorful and infectiously playful illustrations."I want my work to hit people full-on straight away," says Leung, "but also have the thoughts and detail to sustain interest in the long run."  

Illustrations by Ricardo Fumanal

Illustration // Sunday, August 26, 2012
We were doing some research last night on illustrators, and came across the great works of London-based, Ricardo Fumanal, who is almost more of a surrealist than any genre we could define. Sometimes, a good graphite sureal scene is just what we need in the morning. 

New Works From Brendan Monroe

Illustration // Thursday, August 23, 2012
Brendan Monroe currently lives and works in Oakland, California. His interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. Brendan feels these are the best ways for him to communicate, but always enjoys making other things as well. He recently updated his website with some new works, including this collaboration with another Juxtapoz favorite, Mars-1.

Illustrations by Dan-ah Kim

Illustration // Thursday, August 23, 2012
Dan-ah Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and resides in Brooklyn, NY. Her works are delicate, full of texture, patterns and minute details. The loveliness and preciousness of her picture book-like illustrations are met with hints of darkness, solitude and a certain air of gravitas. A graduate of the Pratt Institute, she currently makes art and works in film and television.

Time-Lapse Video by Marc Scheff

Illustration // Thursday, August 23, 2012
Marc Scheff is an illustrator with a degree in Computer Science and a background working in the gaming industry. His digital paintings behold a rough, gestural touch that lend them a certain hand-made quality. Here's a great time-lapse video of his portrait of R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe that offers some insight into Scheff's artistic process.

Artist Wallpapers From Poolga

Illustration // Thursday, August 23, 2012
  Poolga came to life in 2007 when founder Juan Carlos Cammaert got his hands on the (then) revolutionary iPhone. Frustrated by the lack of decent wallpapers out there, he struck upon the idea of showcasing established and up-and-coming illustrators by distributing their work for use on mobile devices. Today, Poolga is one of the few online outlets flying the flag for good quality imagery – no cheesy landscapes, scantily clad babes or muscle cars here!
