Mimi Leung's Explosion of Color

Illustration // Monday, August 27, 2012
Mimi Leung is a Melbourne-based artist and illustrator who loves color, fun, and movement. Since her first solo exhibition in 2008, Leung has been making a real impact with her explosively colorful and infectiously playful illustrations."I want my work to hit people full-on straight away," says Leung, "but also have the thoughts and detail to sustain interest in the long run."  

The Erotic Works of Alfred Steiner

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 27, 2012
Alfred Steiner invites his viewers to play a disturbing game of I-Spy in his Frankensteinian illustrations of famous cartoon characters. Mickey Mouse, Yosemite Sam, and Count Chocula are but of a few of the pop culture figures Steiner depicts using sexual organs, animals and everyday objects.

Illustrations by Ricardo Fumanal

Illustration // Sunday, August 26, 2012
We were doing some research last night on illustrators, and came across the great works of London-based, Ricardo Fumanal, who is almost more of a surrealist than any genre we could define. Sometimes, a good graphite sureal scene is just what we need in the morning. 

A Michael Stipe Timelapse by Marc Scheff

Juxtapoz // Sunday, August 26, 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.

Book Extracts by Thomas Allen

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 24, 2012
This is one part imaginative, another part well photographed. Thomas Allen takes old encyclopedias and science books and cuts them out to create these illustrations. In the end, his work is like book archaeology. 

The Likecoholic by Asaf Hanuka

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 24, 2012
We have seen this work in the past, and we love this piece, the Likecohoic, by Asaf Hanuka (yes, Tomer's brother). The best part is that we are hoping you will get your inner "likecoholic" into this post and like it yourself. 

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.
