ONEQ does phenomenal pinups. She grew up on a small island in Japan completely separated from the flash and pop of Tokyo culture and gathered all her influences from a neighbor who loved art and Japan’s insistence that schoolchildren spend part of the day drawing.

Lucy Hardie was born in the Goulburn Valley region of Victoria, Australia. She began her education at a Waldorf School that her parents built on their farm and it was here that her love of art was encouraged... 'To help others experience Life's infinite beauty and mystery more deeply, is my greatest aspiration. Art as a catalyst for a more liberated and embracing self and worldview.

Some of Carlin Diaz's works have organic shapes, others geometrics. Shapes, he always thinks about shapes: of a circle, a flower, the shape of a woman... But, how represent them graphically? It all depends in the personality of each and every shape and the vibe transmitted by them. Every project have his own personality, every project creates his own feeling.

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.

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.

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!
