A few weeks prior to Patrick O'Connell's in-depth interview with "Imagination Issue" artist Matt Ritchie, photographer Chloe Rice and I went to pay him a visit in his home studio and wood shop in Castro Valley, CA, and submerged ourselves in the hand-carved, scratched and painted world that he has created for over two decades. That world is aesthetically tiny...

Why stop at just using LEGO pieces to make something out of your imagination when you can use your ENTIRE toy box to do so? That's the thought process that initiated the vibrant, playful and BEAUTIFUL artwork of NOSEGO, Philadelphia's most exciting resident to emerge into our culture since Rocky Balboa. And NOSEGO opens a new show at Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City, CA this Saturday, December 14, 2013.

Juxtapoz' 20th year begins with a special issue curated by Alex Pardee. "The Imagination Issue" is just that: a look into the special worlds and imaginative universes created by some of our favorite artists and creatives working in the world today. From David Copperfield's world of magic, the Lonely Island's original brand of parody and music, inside Wolvesmouth's kitchen, and into the studios of fine artists Charlie Immer, Tara McPherson, Greg "Craola" Simkins, Scott C, and more. "The Imagination Issue" explores where creativity can take you, where it was born, and how an artist can transform the regular into a special world for us to share.
