Digital Illustration and Collages by Luis Toledo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 05, 2014
Life, identity, reality, status quo, intention and purpose... From very young, Luis Toledo, or La Prisa Mata, has explored our inquisitive reality, analyzing the hidden meaning of every image, and dissecting the mystery of beauty. As a meticulous collector, he gathers illustrations, textures, and fragments to create and built his images from. I recently ran into a series of works from Toledo 'Humans', depicting the form and figure in his usual insanley intricate and detailed collage process.

Nadezhda Illarionova's Dark Fairy Tales

Illustration // Thursday, October 30, 2014
Nadezhda Illarionova is a Russian graphic artist and illustrator. Her whimsical illustrations, with nude nymph harpists and a cathedral filled with grisaille human-swan hybrids, seem as if they are pulled right from children's stories. But with dark, earthy palettes and faces that range from surprised to devious, we suspect these images telling the Grimm not Disney versions.

Andy Warhol And His Mother's Little-Known Collaborations

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 30, 2014
Way before Andy Warhol became the Pop pioneer that we now know him to be, he worked as a freelance children’s book illustrator. And in 1954, Andy and his mother Julia Warhola released a limited-edition book titled 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy. Not only is the title quirkily ungrammatical, there are only 16 cats in the book. Enjoy!

Drawings by Joe Biel

Illustration // Tuesday, October 28, 2014
This morning we take a look at the drawings of Los Angeles-based artist Joe Biel. His most recent work has increased both in scale and complexity, addressing a theme of poetic collision between beauty and the (sometimes cruel) absurdity of the contemporary world. "This collision produces a variety of situations, ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, all of which reveal a vulnerable sense of humanity."
