The Barcelona based artist Guim Tió Zarraluki creates his abstracted portrait illustrations with a unique method that he has adapted to the majority of his work. By altering fashion magazine images, he creates these oil-pastel covered, strange/beautiful, bug-eyed girls with delicate features and lovely lips that we can't help but admire.

It may hurt your feet, but the design and formation is incredible. The collective, We Make Carpets, consisting of Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg, "mix traditional skills and a critical view of the consumer society in unusual carpets." In this instance, they made a carpet out of plastic green and gold toy soldiers, in conjunction with Dutch Design Week 2010.

A Monday morning classic look at fashion post-WWI. The greatest artists are always busy doing something. Pablo Picasso was a great artist and he designed these ballet shorts in 1919.

... We want to take this opportunity to mention that we should cherish the art direction and creative promotion that this show has given the world over the past half decade. Even if you don't watch Mad Men, and could care less, there aren't many television shows that have ever paid attention to the details of marketing and stylzing itself to an audience. This is an art project. Look at these promo shots for Season 6, which begins on April 7, 2013 on AMC? Well. Done.

One of the most influential photographers of the last 30 years (see all the good Marc Jacobs ads), whose style of the over-exaggerated flash has seen countless followers, Juergen Teller just opened Woo! at the ICA in London this week. The exhibition features a "seamless journey through his landmark fashion and commercial photography from the 90s." A great look into the world of a photographer who has some of the most personal photos of influential celebrity-types ever shot.

The images shot by London based photographer Dominic Clarke have a similar appeal to gorgeously muted, vintage, erotic snapshots. Judging from the beautiful quality of authenticity in his work, I can only assume that he is using a good old fashioned analog, film camera so shoot these innocently seductive compositions.

One of the most iconic fashion photographers of all time, Steven Meisel easily remains the one photographer with whom all the models aspire to work. He has photographed every cover of Vogue Italia since 1988. Ok, I know its supposed to be year of the snake in 2013, but I can't help but love this portrait of Daphne Guinness for Vogue Italia by Steven Meisel... another dark creature.

Give you a little head's up on some weekend plans. The good people of HoodieBuddie will have a pop-up shop at Space 15 Twenty. Rain or shine they will be there screenprinting on some hoodies, playing some music, and entertaining all the shoppers. Come by, have a drink, and say hello. Then have another drink.

Last week, Nike invited Juxtapoz to their 21 Mercer space in SoHo, NYC, to create a pair of bespoke Nike SB Janoski’s, the newest addition to the customizable NikeID collection. We sent our good friend, director Colin Devin Moore to the studio to get his NikeID chops on, and who better to walk him through the process than, Stefan Janoski, himself.
