Pardee's Picks: The Work of Stefan deCarlo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
I happily paid my first visit to New York's MoCCA Festival earlier this year after hearing about it for years from artists and book publishers comparing it to San Francisco's APE (Alternative Press Expo). And amongst the 200 hundred or so artists, independent publishers, screen printers and eccentric literary folk, one person's art in particular stood out to me more than any other.

Bananas From Outer Space

Erotica // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
In this animated short, a trio of primate motorcyclists head to an intergalactic watering hole where the busty barmaid offers a little more than they can swallow. If that sounds crazy, just wait until you watch the video.

Comic: How Tech Companies See You

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
We saw this comic/cartoon this moring on The Joy Of Tech, and to be honest, it isn't so much amazing art wise as it is clever and quite funny. Did you know that Google sees you as a naked harvest, and Facebook just sort of sells you to anything? Actually, you probably did know that.

Illustration // Sunday, October 21, 2012
'Things You'd Better Not Mix Up' is an animated short by Joost Lieuwma featuring a series of humorous scinerios of things and situations that, if approached from an opposite angle, have an obviously funny outcome. Joost Lieuwma graduated in 2005 at the Utrecht School of Arts and is currently working as a freelance animator in Utrecht.

An illustrated animation from artist, Katayama Takuto, 'Dissimilated Vision' was put together with remarkable simplicity of the illustrated line and a lot of anatomical imagination. With music by Kikuchi Ryouta and arrangement from Hamanaka Shun. Sit back and enjoy this one.

Stussy x Real Deal Collection

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 28, 2012
For Fall 2012, Stussy enlisted Real Deal Comix co-creator Lawrence Hubbard to take his iconic characters and bring them to life for an artist series of t-shirts. As underground as underground gets, Real Deal is a comic book unlike any you’ve ever seen.

Superheroes by Robert M Ball

The work of London-based illustrator Robert M. Ball is a blend of cubism, colors, and classic creativity. Our favorite works frm Ball are his illustrations with comic book characters and superheroes, done in a retro Cubist style.

Studio Visit: Sam Kieth

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
The first time I visited Sam Kieth's studio, about 10 years ago, he shared cubicle space directly above The Spaghetti Factory. And he had a janitor. The last time I ventured up to Sam Kieth's studio, 6 years later, he was literally working (comfortably, might I add) in a duct-tape-wrapped mummy of a chair in an underground hideout in the forests of Placerville, CA.
