Björn Griesbach's Hollow Children

Illustration // Friday, August 28, 2015
German illustrator Björn Griesbach knows how to give you haunting dreams. One of his more recent series, "Hollow Children," features grinning children with dark smudged faces that, to be honest, are pretty terrifying.

The Work of Stephanie Inagaki

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 27, 2015
Weaving elements of masterful line work and a strong sense of heritage, the work of Stephanie Inagaki uses Japanese mythology and folk tales as the source for her intimate presentations of the manners in which we relate to the ones we love, the often painful lessons learned in the experience, and ultimately the blossoming discovery of self...

Nuria Riaza's Ballpoint Illustrations

Nuria Riaza's blue ballpoint drawings are meticulous, in every sense of the word. Not only are they exquisitely rendered with detailed, fine linework, but each piece displays the artist's very careful deliberation and composition (her grids of collected knick-knacks are a neat freak's dream).

Although Mérelle’s drawings appear at first sight realistic in their rendering, they in fact depict outworldly scenarios, unsettling situations and dream-like occurrences.

Buddy Nestor's Eerie Unportraiture

Illustration // Monday, August 24, 2015
In Buddy Nestor's portraits, the depiction of an outward self disintegrates and mutates in order to convey a spiritual interior. “My latest series of paintings are portraits of female artists.  These physical and psychological images are my attempt to capture the true nature of humanity.  They are spiritual X-Rays.  The models that I use in my work are all beautiful women.  However, there is nothing beautiful about the portraits I create.”
