For the rest of the month, we are looking back on some of our favorite features from our print edition. Today, we look at the February 2013 cover story with James Jean. At the time, James Jean retired, then didn’t really retire at all. In a similar vein of Michael Jordan, who retired from one phase of his career only to return stronger and more well-equipped to dominate once again, Jean left the illustration world behind in 2008, redefining himself as one of the most talented and intriguing fine artists of his generation...

From now until the end of the year, Juxtapoz will be showcasing some of our favorite features from our print edition, from the January—December 2013.

As we announced on the site this week, we have been curating a series of prints on the Art.com website, featuring works from Mario Wagner, Ferris Plock, Kelly Tunstall, and Trystan Bates. Also, our collection features one of our favorite abstract painters, and Barnstormer, Kenji Hirata. The NYC-based artist has been featured in the print magazine in the past, but in recent years, has expanded his work into multi-colored, playful abstractions. Here is our interview with Kenji from our special Barnstormers issue in December 2009...

In conjunction with the annual Prints Gone WIld 2013 event tonight in Brooklyn, we look back on our feature with Mike Houston and Martin Mazorra, better known as screenprinting experts, Cannonball Press.

In honor of our newest hoodie that we just released on our webstore, we look back on the December 2010 article on graffiti artist, PEZ. Documenting his history as a sticker artist, zine maker, graffiti artist, and his signature art on album covers, get a little insight into some underground history.

Seeing that it is Halloween, and Tom Waits dressed in a mask for our October 2013 cover story, and he played his first concert performance in a half decade this past weekend at the Bridge School Benefit in the Bay Area, we wanted to share the October 2013 cover story conversation between Tom Waits and John Baldessari. Their talk did have its own mysteries, own storylines, so it seems absolutely appropriate to read this story today.

In conjunction with our special print curation series with Art.com, today we look back at one of our selected artists, Mario Wagner, and his interview feature in our October 2011 issue. Wagner has always been one of our favorite artists who works in both personal and commercial work, combining collage, futurism, and an almost James Bond-spy like quality to each piece. The best part, these styles are now available as prints on Art.com.

John Waters is a little bit of everything in the creative world; filmmaker, writer, actor, visual artist, and even has a robust art collection. Based in San Francisco, Baltimore, and NYC, we sat down with Waters in the summer of 2010, just when his book Role Models was being released, and his last show at Rena Bransten Gallery in SF was opened.

Kehinde Wiley has always been one of our favorite painters, and in January 2010, we sent contributing editor Joey Garfield to the artist's NYC studio for a conversation about Wiley's ongoing and developing The World Stage series. At this point, Wiley was well on his way to becoming a world-famous painter, with major shows at museums and galleries, such as Roberts & Tilton and Deitch Projects, but we think we captured the artist at a perfect moment, ready for his World Stage...
