Behind the scenes of any functioning system exists a complex internal mechanism, acting and reacting, coordinating and handling all inner operations. Often, this intricate arrangement exists without an outward visible presence, but we trust it's there, all cylinders bobbing in sync...

Over the last month on Juxtapoz.com, we’ve been documenting the behind-the-scenes making of Jeremy Fish’s animated mural that coincides with his next art exhibition, Yesterdays and Tomorrows. Using various Adobe programs, including Adobe Creative Cloud, with animator Brady Baltezore, Fish has taken 100 11x14-inch ink-on-paper drawings and turned them into one continuous animation.

Ahead of her upcoming show at Merry Karnowski Gallery in Los Angeles this Saturday, we stopped by Deedee Cheriel's studio for a little visit! Deedee Cheriel transforms personal experience into folklore through an amalgam of influences both personal and universal. East Indian Art, spirituality, environmentalism, ritual, and landscapes of the Pacific Northwest all inform the artist's work and give context to often-personal narratives...

In our last video following the progress of Jeremy Fish’s animated mural for his exhibition “Yesterdays and Tomorrows,” we were introduced to filmmaker, artist, and technical guru Brady Baltezore. Baltezore has been taking Fish’s 100 drawings, all done on 11x14-inch paper, and transforming them into one continuous animation that will be projected on a wall in North Beach in San Francisco.

At some point in the process of making his mural animation, Jeremy Fish was going to have to go to summer school — the Brady Baltezore School — where he would learn about all the advantages of Adobe’s latest updates to Creative Cloud.

For the past few months, we have been following a special project between Adobe, Juxtapoz, and Jeremy Fish, in which Fish will be creating an animated mural that utilizes the new updates to Adobe Creative Cloud and the new creative hardware, Adobe Ink & Slide. Previously we had asked, “What if Fish took his 100 drawings—telling not only his history but also a special story about San Francisco—and created an animation that could be projected in a public space in the city for passersby to see as part of a moving-mural experience?” At the end of July 2014, Fish will be projecting the mural in the North Beach neighborhood, which he calls home.

Juxtapoz is proud to announce a very special August 2014 issue, featuring one of our all-time favorite musicians, creatives, and all around artistic personas, Madlib. For years, we have followed Madlib's eclectic career, from Quasimoto, Madvillain, Jaylib, Yesterday's New Quintet, the Beat Konducta series, and everything in between. One common thread has always been the unique and artistically-driven alter egos that Madlib has given to the world, and in this issue, we talk to the musician about his world of music and art.

Juxtapoz has been lucky enough to document many different art movements as they have grown over the last 20 years. A benefit that Juxtapoz provides readers is the chance to watch an artist create. Over the next month, we are following two-time Juxtapoz cover artist Jeremy Fish as he builds a moving-mural animation in anticipation of his next solo exhibition, Yesterdays and Tomorrows.

San Francisco artist Jeremy Fish has played a major role not only in Juxtapoz’s growth over the last two decades, but also in the growing movement of artists who grew up in skateboarding and who have formed successful careers in exhibiting art. Not only that, but we consider Fish a friend. He’s a two-time Juxtapoz cover artist, and we look forward to all his immersive paintings and explorations into narrative-based exhibitions.
