The Illustrative Works of Goni Montes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
From the site of Goni Montes, an illustrator we really admire, "I was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, got a BA from the UPR at Mayagüez, and an MFA from SCAD Atlanta. I began working as a scientific illustrator for the Puerto Rico Sea Grant. Now I mostly do editorial illustrations with some fantasy here and there."

Works by Melissa Murray

Illustration // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
'My work stems from a deep interest in psychoanalytical interpretation and the conscious and unconscious effects of human action. In my drawings, animals symbolize sincerity in life, a seemingly degenerative trait in our current human consciousness. When placed amongst our refuse or shown imitating human cutthroat tendencies, my work aims to procure a heartbreaking realization of just how far we have fallen off the natural path...'

Paintings by John Bohl

Illustration // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
John Bohl is a Baltimore-based artist with a BFA in Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Drawing inspiration from psychedelic and naive/folk art, Bohl's works consist of sequences of objects and forms divorced from their normal contexts and re-combined to create unexpected and ambiguous new meanings.

Pardee's Picks: The Works of Jeff Ladouceur

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Five or six years ago, while I was roaming around Kinokuniya, one of my favorite book stores in San Francisco, something that looked like a disease-soaked small pamphlet-sized book caught my eye. In bold, but fancy letters, the word "EBOLA" was stamped on the front adorning a gorgeously rendered child-like bunny rabbit with no face. I had no idea what I was looking at, but I was more than intrigued.

Things Get Hairy with John Slaby

Illustration // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
John Garrett Slaby lives and works in Philadelphia. His paintings are fabricated excerpts from emotional experiences. Broadly recognizable imagery and specific placement of subjects are used as metaphors to articulate a feeling through still life, landscape and portraiture. In this series, billowing locks of hair become a medium through which Slaby's subjects navigate the world and interact with one another.

Sandra Angela's Sitcoms

Illustration // Monday, October 22, 2012
Here is a humorous and nostalgic series from Sandra Angela W; naive and raw illus­tra­tions of old Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion shows that are sure to bring back some memories, if not from her illustration style alone. The char­ac­ters she depicts are rec­og­niz­able in a foreign, childlike sort of way, which only adds to her aesthetic. Sandra was born in 1984 in Cloppenburg and studied illustration at the HAW Hamburg.
