We have been working with a few Andy Warhol projects over the past month, and we were happy to see this go up on Paddle8's auction site today: The Andy Warhol Foundation is proud to present this auction which includes original artwork inspired by Warhol’s work created by ten renowned artists (all artists who have been in Juxtapoz over the past year or two as well). Proceeds will benefit NURTUREart, a non-profit institute dedicated to nurturing new contemporary art by providing exhibition opportunities and resources for emerging artists, curators and public school students.

Ed Emberley’s drawings influenced a generation of artists who grew up to be the influencers of today. Since the ‘60s, his popular how-to-draw books molded millions of young artistic minds, and if you ever made a thumbprint drawing, Emberley is the man to thank.

Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite an artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. Today, we look back on the piece that Boston-based Caleb Neelon painted in his hometown. We were happy that we had one of our longtime contributing editors, and a big part of our editorial team, Neelon, paint one of the standout walls from the series.

This past June, artist, Jux contributor, and Bostonian Caleb Neelon interviewed fellow artist and Bostonian Raul Gonzalez in our magazine. This friendship has now blossomed in a joint exhibition, Mojados y Polvosos (Wet and Dusty), set to open at Denver's Black Book Gallery this September 7, 2012, with Neelon focusing on a maritime theme and Gonzalez focuses on the idea of a voyage, using soil, coffee, and dirty water as his materials.
