Following on the June 2014 issue with Mark Ryden, the July issue features another pillar of Juxtapoz's growth and international success over the past 20 years: Shepard Fairey.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.

Juxtapoz' 20th year begins with a special issue curated by Alex Pardee. "The Imagination Issue" is just that: a look into the special worlds and imaginative universes created by some of our favorite artists and creatives working in the world today. From David Copperfield's world of magic, the Lonely Island's original brand of parody and music, inside Wolvesmouth's kitchen, and into the studios of fine artists Charlie Immer, Tara McPherson, Greg "Craola" Simkins, Scott C, and more. "The Imagination Issue" explores where creativity can take you, where it was born, and how an artist can transform the regular into a special world for us to share.

We end the year on a high, high note, with a great December 2013 cover story on artist Todd "REAS" James. We have been scheduling a story with Todd for a bit now, and after the VMAs with the Miley bears, and another year where his exhibitions seems to get more and more stunning, we thought it was time to send contributing editor Joey Garfield out to NYC to catch up with REAS about pirates, girls, Mileys, vandals, and the evolution of his craft.
