Illustrations by Shan Jiang

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 02, 2012
We were searching for an artist with a burst of color this morning, and remembered how much we loved the work of Shanghai-based Shan Jiang when we have seen it in commercial endeavors over the years. The graphic designer, illustrator, and art director now works in London with design company Shotopop.

Mike Mills Posters for Commune Design

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Mike Mills, the filmmaker behind Beginners and Thumbsucker, and a designer and fine artist in his own right, has designed 5 new posters for Commune Design that our now available on their website. Paper Chase Press are the ones behind getting the limited edition posters printed, and Mr Mills (featured in the January 2010 issue) has some good words/phrases to say about, and written on, each poster.

The Work of Ana Benaroya

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Ana Benaroya is an illustrator, typographer and designer; but above all, a decent human being. When not drawing, screen-printing, or Photoshop-ing, Ana can be found consuming large amounts of hot sauce, usually along with a turkey sandwich of sorts.

Soviet Anti-Alcohol Posters from the 1920s—60s

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 30, 2012
The Soviets were really good at making poster art in the form of propaganda, so good that even the most horrible messages had a begrudgingly nice look. But we have to say, when the Soviet graphic artists wanted to tackle anti-alcohol subjects, they make it damn effective.

The Illustrations and Designs of Mario Hugo

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 29, 2012
Working the commercial field for such brands and publications as Stella McCartney, Surface to Air, United Bamboo, and The Fader, we love how Mario Hugo has taken an almost Moleskine style and turned it into graphic art and design. And as he mentions on his site, "I'm available for commissions and collaborations during the daytime, but my nighttime is reserved for artworks, children's books, and dreaming."

Illustration and Design by James Jessiman

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 29, 2012
Upon seeing the official 2012 Wimbledon poster, James Jessiman's contribution stood out to us. The graphic, print influenced image of a bouncing tennis ball is an essential distillation of what occurs in a tennis match, presenting a small, seemingly peripheral yet central detail that encompasses the movement of the game.

Geometric Forms by Sebastian Wickeroth

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
Geometric form and its concurrent disruption, destruction and deformation is the starting point for Sebastian Wickeroth's illustrated works. Wickeroth plays with the zest for association of the viewer who may be unable to reject the immediately arising impression of a destructive act.

Triangle Superheroes by Inge Jalink

Juxtapoz // Sunday, June 03, 2012
All it takes are a couple hundred triangles. Dutch graphic designer and illustrator, Inge Jalink, takes the simplest of geometrtic shapes and creates portraits of household names in the superhero department. We think Batman is by far our favorite.

The Work of Bill Connors

Juxtapoz // Sunday, June 03, 2012
Screenprinter and illustrator deluxe, Bill Connors is an artist living and working in Chicago, who recently graduated with my BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Melting faces, flesh and veins, brains, hairy guts, serpent eyes and the little pointy ears of ghastly beasts- these are a few of my favorite things.... (also!!)
