Vault // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
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. The interview begins with possibly our favorite opening line this year, "Imagine a candy-coated land full of violence, gore and mischief where paint doesn't exist and everything is funny." Enjoy...

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
These images, taken from scrolls produced during the Japanese Edo period (1603-1868), depict he-gassen or "farting competitions." Yes, that's right, farting. According to the website Naruhodo, "Similar drawings were used to ridicule westerners towards the end of the Edo period, with images depicting the westerners blown away by Japanese farts."

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 06, 2014
We have been paying attention to the works of Dafy Hagai for some time, and her series "Israeli Girls" is one of our favorites that she has done.

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. 

RIP The Great H.R. Giger (1940-2014)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 13, 2014
We were sad to hear this morning that renowned Swiss artist H.R. Giger has passed away. Most well known for designing the monster and sets for Ridley Scott's "Alien," Giger influenced a generation of artists and filmmakers. Giger's work melded and combined mechanical, machine and human elements into nightmarish creatures, creating surrealist images in a style he described as "biomechanical" or "biomechanoids."

Subjects of his paintings are typically Sword and sorcery gods, monsters, and well-muscled male and female barbarians engaged in battle.
