Daniel Clowes is a one-man comics institution. From his early work for Cracked Magazine, to his long-running, alternative comic book series, Eightball, which spawned feature films and graphic novels, Clowes has always been a prolific pioneer in style and approach.

There is a duality in the work of Evan Hecox. Each piece of art is instantly recognizable as his, from skate graphics to fine art pieces, there is a command of style unlike any artists I can recall. Secondly, the viewer recognizes a location and history in the paintings—his street corner signage—the storefronts are abstract but familiar.

Creating pieces both intimidating and inventive, 29-year old Dutch painter, Joram Roukes works out of the small town of Groningen in northern Netherlands. With airy layers and dream-like surrealist landscapes, Roukes’ stream-of-consciousness style creates multiple layers of content as well as medium. Fluidly designed, elements of Roukes’ creatures and narratives extrude and protrude from one another. “I am engaged in what the viewer will see and think. I think the paintings steer but not dictate. That is what I like to do, to confuse, allowing the viewer to express or project their point of view on what they see.”

'In this work, Hannah Stouffer is exploring the concept of land, escape and nostalgic solitude within a space. Stouffer portrays a post-primeval desire for our natural environment, fully realized through both memory and beingness. Through the use of her distinctive vibrance and idealized imagery, her new work aims to not only capture a reality but also represent an ideal within a landscape.' This limited edition print was released today through 1xRun.

A busy summer it has been all around in the art world, but in our home base of the San Francisco Bay Area, we have had two significant museum retrospectives that have made their way into the September 2012 issue of Juxtapoz. First off, we celebrate our cover story, Daniel Clowes, and his fantastic exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California, Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes. Over the years, the iconic comic book artist has given us cult-followed works such as Ghost World, Eightball, Wilson, and numerous covers for The New Yorker.

In the approximately 35 years of modern skateboarding, the importance of the artwork adorning the bottom of the boards themselves cannot be overstated. A mash-up of personal expression, corporate branding, propagandic conveyance, and sometimes, even true fine art at their best, they can express many of the seemingly schizophrenic facets of the skateboard world for which they speak.
