Brendan Monroe's illustrations depict nebulous, vibrating scenes of a dream-world inspired by scientific processes. His works bring to life the formless figures of a microscopic plane, inviting the viewer into vivid realms of flesh, blood and plasma that are at once strange and deeply our own. Monroe lives in Oakland with his wife Evah and his cat Jalapeño, and he is also a sculptor. He lists some of his interests as "slime, fungus, blobs, crawling sludge, the entire Universe, cats, dogs, rain, the beach, chemistry, biology, botany, food, watching paint dry, frequencies in waves of light."

A nice little surprise in the mail yesterday: Brendan Monroe's new release, the Islands n.2 comic. Says Monroe, "This is the second visual story of my wandering dream based comics. The couple explores the deep sea floor and the gravitational relationship of moon and tide."

Brendan Monroe currently lives and works in Oakland, California. His interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. Brendan feels these are the best ways for him to communicate, but always enjoys making other things as well. He recently updated his website with some new works, including this collaboration with another Juxtapoz favorite, Mars-1.
