Dongwook Lee's works focus on the contradictions that are fundamentally inherent in human existence and life.

In the next couple of weeks, as 2014 comes to a close we are digging through the year's issues and sharing some of our favorite features. We kick it off with Charlie Immer's interview from January's "Imagination Issue" curated by Alex Pardee.

These images, taken from scrolls produced during the Japanese Edo period (1603-1868), depict he-gassen or "farting competitions." Yes, that's right, farting.

Presidents with Boob Faces

Erotica // Sunday, June 08, 2014
How appropriate. A collection of historic US Presidents with breasts on their faces from an artist by the name of E. Deutchman. We bet you've never seen portraits of George Washington and his successors like this before, surprisingly, but we know you've been thinking it.

Psychopathic Killer Cartoon Characters

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Artist Dan Luvisi has taken all of our favorite loveable cartoon characters and re-imagined them as psychopathic killers. We are a little hurt that he would do such a thing, how could he do that to our beloved Kermit? And the Cookie Monster?? Well, at least that one makes sense. He is an addict and has a problem. We have no words for Donald Duck.
