She's Full of Colour: The Works of Julia Mai

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 29, 2012
We have never been to Iceland, but we can only assume, especially with the artistic output from the island nation, that there is a good bit of creative discourse going on amongst the young people. They have standout bands and artists who call Iceland home, and we are mesmerized by the works of Julia Mai and her She's Full of Colour series. Mistakes and freedoms bring the portraits to life, and we appreciate good linework matched with abstraction.

Erlend Tait grew up on the Black Isle, listening to Heavy Metal, reading comics and drawing pictures. He studied drawing and painting at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, and then learned the ancient techniques of glass painting and staining while restoring windows in historic buildings throughout Scotland.

The Illustrations of Bayo

Illustration // Friday, December 28, 2012
'My current body of work depicts the inner debate that confronts the ego as a mediator for the demands of individuality and as a self-energy that keeps fanatical vigilance over its survival. The fundamental quest for turning individuality into a delusional existence. A series of characters immerse in a non-stop battle of energy. Positive against destructive.' Bayo

The Works of Sasha Biosyak

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 28, 2012
I'll give it to Russian artist and illustrator Sasha Blosyak for producing something I've never seen before. Hyper-color, super saturated aggressive dolphins, lazer-eyed, colossal bunny rabbits, battling it out with super-stretched werewolves... I don't know where the ideas for these drawings come from, maybe it has something to do with Russia, but I like it.

'Chris Parrado is 23 years old a Colombian Illustrator. Tired of the advertising world has decided to be a worker without tagline, who composed for tools and graphite flashes has been responsible for taking the complicated task of capturing moments that other people inadvertently omitted, perhaps to go lost in the saturation distressing contemporary world.

Best of 2012: Bic Pen Illustrations by Juan Francisco Casas

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 26, 2012
What we wrote on March 9, 2012: We just stumbled across the works of Juan Francisco Casas, a Spanish artist who creates these fantastic nude/sex scene'd drawings with only a Bic pen. Casas captures his models in a consistent backdrop: bed, showers, or taking pictures... you get our point here, there is going to be some nudity in these drawings. Just enjoy the skill, if you will.
