Northern California is home to some of the world’s most gorgeous landscapes. From the Sierra to the Ocean, to mountains that touch the Pacific, the ethereal beauty is a work of art itself. For over 40 years, Tom Killion has delicately archived the environmental majesty of California within the traditional process of Japanese-Style woodblock printmaking, creating stunning, colorful works through a handmade, ancient operation. We visited Tom at his Point Reyes studio to experience the comfort of a beginner’s state of mind.

As we mentioned yesterday on the site, on Saturday, June 13 at 7pm at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco, SF DocFest film festival will premiere “Juxtapoz Presents: Art Shorts," a program of short documentaries that spotlight artists and works featured in recent issues of Juxtapoz. From Olek and Sucklord, Robert Williams to the Mission School, to the world premiere of a new short of Cheech Marin, this should be a great night. A few months ago, we premiered this short on Long Gone John, one of the great art collectors we have ever encoutered, and here is a little reminder about it!

Control is lost and time becomes an abstraction when Mike Aho draws us into the short film The Lonely Life, which he wrote, directed and scored. He can be credited with almost every aspect of the film. (That, on top of being the new creative director at Volcom, and leading the band ((sounder)).) It stars musician and actor Will Oldham, whose character had been cryogenically frozen and is searching to understand his former life. Dazed in the intense haze of medication, lies and hallucinations, the film follows this search for truth amidst a cloak of certain evil.

We need to feel like we belong to this experience, we need to know our place, we need to know where we fit. We need to feel that we're accepted for who we are. So the goal you may think is to, get a show, get press or to make money or to have fame. But it's not, the thing we all really want is to feel connected.

Sometimes “special” is the only word that will do, and in the case of Neil Young’s “Special Deluxe” by Penguin Books , let’s agree that it is, starting with the artist’s observation that “being obsessive is not such a bad thing for creativity.” The book is an enchanting portrayal of the roots of Young’s appreciation for the ability to travel country roads and landscapes of the imagination.

Juxtapoz Presents: Gone Again is a visual tour of the elaboratelydecorated surroundings of the legendary art and music collector Long Gone John. Filmed at his estate in the upper woods of Olympia, WA, this short film is a fantastical journey through the maze of John’s aesthetic mind and personal obsessions. John’s spare, singular narration gives voice to an interior monologue set against the backdrop of an optical nirvana. The Treasures of Long Gone John celebrates its 10 year anniversary.
