Maybe you have noticed in the print magazine, but Lagunitas Brewing Company, creators of some very fine ales, IPAs, pilsners, and a very nice Little Sumpin' Ale that we here at the Juxtapoz office really enjoy, have been creating interactive ads that ask for art submissions. Back in the April Issue, aka the "Bjork" issue, Lagunitas gave readers a black canvas and said go at it, and while you are going at it, submit your work to email@example.com. They got a lot of submissions. Even our editor's grandfather submitted. Here are some of our favorites.

Beautiful and melancholy, these new digital illustrations by Janus Miralles are simple yet dynamic. His textural technique transforms the familiar.

Everyone has a certain way they see the world. Some things jump out at people, while others pass them by. I see faces and patterns everywhere. When I look at people, I connect their beauty marks, and find faces in their knuckle lines. It’s just the way I live. So, naturally, I see these things in photographs too.

If you've ever thought that the Eiffel Tower look a little bit like a Giraffe or that the Guggenheim could be a snail, then you're not alone. Federico Babina, whose architecture-influenced illustrations we've been enjoying for years, has a whole series of famous architects' classic buildings and the animals they look like!

Alessia Iannetti's chosen medium of graphite, watercolor and ink on wood is fascinating and befuddling. Her ability to capture nuance of detail and smooth textures is astouding, and these images of young girls with birds and foliage are enchanting to look at for hours. Her handling of color against a monochromatic scene creates a sense of tension and focus as well. These are beautiful works rendered in a highly unique fashion.

It's probably no secret that we really love the work of Marion Fayolle. The illustrator just released a new book titled "Naughty," that features a small collection of her pornographic and surrealist drawings.

Andy Rementer, who was cover artist of our April, 2014 issue, recently completed a really cool project. He designed some 3D Printing-inspired stamp for the enclaved microstate The Republic of San Marino. Now, how cool is that?

"I can sense the presence of enclosed spaces within my psyche. A hidden collection of obscure moods & thoughts that I can't quite comprehend. In attempt to better comprehend some of it, I've developed this series. It is a stroll of curiosity in search of something insightful, somewhere within the hidden valleys of my psyche."

Candice Tripp is an illustrator whose dark sense of humor is evident in everything she does. She studied fashion originally, then eventually made the switch to full-time painting. Her art is replete with masked children and cool-colored forests, the witty titles evoking mysteries and punchlines with a little bit of macabre.

Atsuko Goto's illustrations are submerged in a cloudy haze, ethereal visions of otherworldly beauty. Working in watercolor and lapis lazuli on cotton, Goto investigates the fundamental relationships between humankind and nature, death, decay and regeneration. She is a graduate of the National University of Fine Arts and Music Tokyo.
