Illustrations by Miles Jackson

Illustration // Thursday, July 11, 2013
'Drawing on a wide range of source material, from the adventures of Tin Tin to Goya etchings, to Japanese woodblock prints, Miles Jackson’s illustrations are built on an invented visual language of dense pattern used to construct rhythmic compositions. The works labor-oriented subject matter parallels its structured creation process which Miles finds beautifully meditative and also painstaking as shit.'

Works by Andrew Archer

Illustration // Thursday, July 11, 2013
Andrew Archer is an illustrator based in Auckland, New Zealand. 'I use a healthy mix of both traditional and digital techniques with no real preference of medium. I didn’t take art through my younger years, but I did eat crayons which quite possibly is where my off-beat colour palettes come from. I’m greatly inspired by surrealism, juxtapositions and sublime narratives but more specifically wood block prints, edo period art, cartoons, ideograms, characterization, travel and Asia.'

The Thousand Drawings of Paul Romano

Illustration // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Paul Romano is a fine artist and designer living and working in Philadelphia. He recently set out on an ambitious year-long project to produce 1000 10"X10" work, all of which can be seen on his website. Romano describes the project as both exercise and exorcise through mediums and and of ideas. The goal was to come out on the other side of the project with a better understanding of his personal aesthetic as well as the questions he means to ask himself about the role of art in his own life. 

James Hance's Pop-Culture Mash-Ups

Illustration // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
James Hance is the king of mash-ups. An english illustrator whose penchant for combining popular (and at varying stages on the geekdom scale) movies, TV shows and comics into unique and irresistible illustrations has garnered him quite a cult following. By feeding off of the nostalgic energy of these familiar cultural sites, Hance is able to tap into almost anyone's sweet spot, earning him his own moniker-- "Relentlessly Cheerful." Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Labyrinth, The Wizard of Oz, Calvin and Hobbes, Winnie the Pooh and Up are some of his favorites to mash up. Prepare to be cheered up by these brilliantly playful illustrations. 

Elizabeth Patterson's Rainy Windshield Drawings

Illustration // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Fascinated by the texture and color of water, artist Elizabeth Patterson challenged herself to recreate the absurdly complex formation of water droplets on rain-streaked windshields. Her ongoing series entitled "Rainscapes" blends drawing, hyperrealism and traditional landscape techniques, resulting in images that can be seen as both real and abstract. Patterson begins with her own photography and utilizes sharpened colored pencils and solvent to create these inconceivable compositions.

A Look at... Vania Zouravliov

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Featured in our August 2013 issue, Russia-born, UK-based artist Vania Zouravliov. Straight from the magazine: "Vania Zouravliov is an enigma, a paradox, and a Catch-22; he doesn’t want to have his picture taken, creates elegant art that appears to be in the process of a magically disappearing, and references 19th Century European and American storytellers as inspiration. In the legacy of previous eras, where prodigious talent was nurtured in the arts like young math and science geniuses are cultivated today, Vania became an internationally known illustrator at the age of 13.
