New Muses, Old Favorite

Erotica // Thursday, May 03, 2012
I've always loved the work of Barcelona based illustrator, Conrad Roset. His erotic muses are ever-changing though stylistically his work is always recognizable, with their inked simplicity and rosy lips and knees. The innocence he portrays in minimal provocative poses gets me every time. His new collection of female figures, from early 2012 prove to be no different.

The Work of Grzegorz Domaradzki

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 03, 2012
In the early years, Grzegorz Domaradzki's personal art work revolved around rather dark themes. A conscious effort to make his work more broadly appealing and optimistic in its tone has coincided with an increasing focus on his favorite way of creating images: he initially works with pencil and/or pen, before the hand-drawn art gets perfected on his iMac...

Casper Kang's Wilderness

Illustration // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
Casper Kang was born in Toronto, Canada and after completing his B.A.S. at Carleton University, he moved to Seoul, South Korea. Feeling disillusioned by society, and also due to his affinity towards art since childhood, he quit his job to pursue a career as a painter, which he hopes to maintain until his death. Inspired by modern social conditions, the visual forms and subject matter of his work draw from such outlets as popular culture, materialism, cultural identity...

Half of Less Than Ten

Illustration // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
'The skeleton dimensions I shall now proceed to set down are copied verbatim from my right arm, where I had them tattooed; as in my wild wanderings at that period, there was no other secure way of preserving such valuable statistics. But as I was crowded for space, and wished the other parts of my body to remain a blank page for a poem I was then composing—at least, what untattooed parts might remain...'

Sam Vanallemeersch Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Sam Vanallemeersch spends every waking hour tracing life in blackest ink. Once he starts spewing his freeform ravings, there's no stopping him, no human concept is safe from the sharpness of his gaze, no scrap of paper-related material is safe from the sharpness of his pen. Sam has done editorial work for Focus and Weekend Knack, 11 Freunde, The New York Times and Amsterdam Weekl. He has a book published by Nobrow and is already working on the next one.

Glimpses of Skin by Amy Martino

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
The minimal, abstractly rendered illustrations of Amy Martino have elements of softly romantic, fashion focused portraiture and strangely embellished accents. Hidden glimpses of naked flesh and almost accidental moments of skin peek through this New York based illustrator and art directors fashion drawings, as she creates her work for both commercial and personal use.

New works from Alex Ziv

Illustration // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Recent SFAI grad Alex Ziv's new work is a blurred mix of realist pointillism mixed with cartoonish gore and pop-culture reference, a style definitely all his own. His mash-up illustrations are currently part of group show: Cigarettes, Phone Cards, & Hip Hip Clothing which opened April 20th in San Francisco at the Fecal Face Gallery.

Cosimo Galluzzi Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
“At first, I see abandoned cities, temples in deserts, solitary mountains—but slowly figures begin to populate them. Execution is largely dependent on time, the less there is the more things happen inside the computer. I prefer ink and watercolors, the rest is patience.” Cosimo Galluzzi is a Los Angeles based illustrator.
