Born in Kent in 1959, UK artist David Downton worked as a freelance illustrator for 12 years before he found his true calling as a world-renowned fashion illustrator. After being commissioned by the Financial Times to draw at a couture show in 1996, his career quickly escalated, attracting such prestigious clients as Tiffany & Co., Harrods, Dior, L'Oreal, and Harper's Bazaar, among others. In 2007, Downton launched Pourquoi Pas?, the first ever journal of fashion illustration, and he is currently a visiting professor at the London College of Fashion.

We like it when our friends team up. KR and KRINK, who was the cover our Juxtapoz 2x over the years, teamed up with Marc Jacobs and their Bookmarc shop for a series of art markers and ink releases that have been released in numerous color options. As the collab states, "Bookmarc and Krink present the perfect accessory - a selection of the highest quality markers and paint pens designed exclusively for Bookmarc. Fashion meets function."

This past weekend we stopped by HVW8 Art for the private reception for “15 Years Of Gonz and Adidas,” a photo exhibition celebrating Mark Gonzales’ 15 years with the adidas Skateboarding family. As you may know, the man they lovingly call the "Gonz" has been a good friend of the Juxtapoz, Thrasher, and High Speed family for years, and we are so happy to see this show come to fruition. Photos and more after the jump…

Friend of Juxtapoz magazine, and former cover artist from September 2011, Neck Face, has just created a capsule collection with Nike SB that features a snapback hat, Blazer series, t-shirts, and backpack. With Neck Face having obvious ties in the skate world, its nice to see a simple logo treatment and some of the cleanest Blazers you will ever get. Look for the collection now...
