We've been fans of Brecht Vandenbroucke for a while now. The Belgian artist was most recently featured in our September 2014 issue and we were happy to check back in and see that he has stayed busy, giving us lots of new work to feast our eyes on!

One wouldn't be out of line to presume that Vandenbroucke spends a fair amount of time on the Internet. Or perhaps he really spends a very normal amount of time online and just documents and processes that experience in his artwork in a memorable way. The graphics, icons and even the frames through which we experience the digital world—and how that changes our experience of regular flesh and blood life—all leap out with dramatic dimension in Vandenbroucke’s distinctive line and color.

Sometimes you just walk right into a gallery and know you have something moving on your hands. That is what we felt like with Jenny Morgan. Her work is stunning, well-executed, alluring... and we have her on the cover of the September 2014 issue of Juxtapoz. We go to Jenny's Brooklyn studio to watch the development of her new body of work.

One of our favorite artists of the moment is Belgium's Brecht Vandenbroucke. In fact we have liked Brecht's work for years, but we are stirring something up with the artist at the moment, getting to know him better, and have been looking at his newest works and they are just fantastic. His exhibition earlier this year at Galerie Martel had a fantastic sense of both fine art and comic book sense of humor, a bit of New Yorker meets R Crumb style and wit. Get to know, and enjoy, Brecht Vandenbroucke.

Humourus, bold, bright, and sometimes tortuous- Brecht Vandenbroucke's works are intricate visual narratives. In his work you can find multiple pop culture & social references that are both aesthetically pleasing and thought provoking.

Brecht Vandenbroucke is a Belgian based artist and illustrator with obscurely humorous narrative work that is bright, bold and torturous at times. Incredibly captivating with its vibrant colors and images, Brecht creates work that is engaging, risky and often hilariously embarrassing encouraging us to live a little, loosen up, its gonna be alright...

When we first looked at the work of Brecht Vandenbroucke, it reminded us of some of our favorite New Yorker covers. We don't know much about the Belgian artist, but what we do know is that he is prolific and has one of the better senses of humor than most illustators we know.
