Choose Your Own Adventure Fold

Illustration // Thursday, January 03, 2013
At the start of this story, there is a village with a train track in the middle. It is the start of an adventure where the reader is the only one who can determine what will happen. If he chooses to fold to the left, the village will change into a city.  If he chooses to fold to the right, the village will be surrounded by a lake and pine trees. Little by little, monsters appear… flying saucers, a huge wave…

Terrence Payne's Text Illustrations

Illustration // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Terrence Payne’s archetypal oil pastel portraits combine narrative elements, refined organic forms, along with delicate and bold lines to suggest movement and evolution in his subject’s character.  The earnest beauty ensuing from the clumsy actions of his subjects as they stumble through life in pursuit of their ideal existence inspire him.  Whether or not they ever reach their prescribed potential is irrelevant to Terrence, it is the fleeting and universal experiences that happen...

Seems like Eng took some effective Moebius pills, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Our favorite pieces from the Shanghai, China-based Mojo Wang are the ones that do not feature faces. His newest work, People Mountain, People Se, feature grayscaled characters, no faces, saluting and communicating in unison. Maybe the theme of anonymity will carry us through 2013?

The Works of Lori Pratico

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 01, 2013
"Through my artwork, I attempt to modernize the idea of “portraiture” Whether it be my subject or the style of my portraits, my goal is to create work that is both relevant and engaging. Being self taught there are no rules in my artwork. I create what to me, looks good. I experiment with different materials and resources and my only concern is the result, not the method I used to get there." Lori Pratico
