Works by Dan-ah Kim

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 24, 2012
Dan-ah Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and resides in Brooklyn, NY. Her works are delicate, full of texture, patterns and minute details. The loveliness and preciousness of her picture book-like illustrations are met with hints of darkness, solitude and a certain air of gravitas. A graduate of the Pratt Institute, she currently makes art and works in film and television.

Works by Allison Sommers

Erotica // Friday, August 24, 2012
Allison Sommers is a Brooklyn-based artist working primarily in gouache. She creates complicated, intricate, uncomfortable worlds of meat, vegetation, and birds and beasts of various sizes. Her work is intentionally vague, both conceptually and morally, and hints at underlying narrative structure without providing clear artist-authorship to guide the viewer through.

New Works From Brendan Monroe

Illustration // Thursday, August 23, 2012
Brendan Monroe currently lives and works in Oakland, California. His interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. Brendan feels these are the best ways for him to communicate, but always enjoys making other things as well. He recently updated his website with some new works, including this collaboration with another Juxtapoz favorite, Mars-1.

Illustration // Thursday, August 23, 2012
Marc Scheff is an illustrator with a degree in Computer Science and a background working in the gaming industry. His digital paintings behold a rough, gestural touch that lend them a certain hand-made quality. Here's a great time-lapse video of his portrait of R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe that offers some insight into Scheff's artistic process.

Artist Wallpapers From Poolga

Illustration // Thursday, August 23, 2012
  Poolga came to life in 2007 when founder Juan Carlos Cammaert got his hands on the (then) revolutionary iPhone. Frustrated by the lack of decent wallpapers out there, he struck upon the idea of showcasing established and up-and-coming illustrators by distributing their work for use on mobile devices. Today, Poolga is one of the few online outlets flying the flag for good quality imagery – no cheesy landscapes, scantily clad babes or muscle cars here!

The Illustrated Man by Rich Kelly

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 23, 2012
As an illustration Rich Kelly did for the musician Dr. Dog, this gorgeously inked portrait of a weathered man who has done his time under the needle. It was done for the purpose of being a printed poster for a show at the Vic Theater in Chicago, IL. I love the palette and focus on the tattoo work in the image.
