DRIFT by Joshua Hagler and Maja Ruznic on Kickstarter

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 23, 2013
Juxtapoz friend and recently featured Bay Area artist Joshua Hagler and fellow artist Maja Ruznic have set out on a journey through the Middle East and Europe, and have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a book collection. As the duo notes of the project "The project brings us through Europe as well as Jordan where we will be organizing visual storytelling workshops with Syrian refugees. Having both worked from personal experiences and with individuals struggling with psychological trauma in our past work, Drift becomes not only a search for home but an experiment to see what happens when the work is created in a state of transience and full involvement."

We just got a message from our good friend Greg 'Craola' Simkins, a past cover artist with the magazine, about a new Kickstarter project he just opened up (and its kicking ass by the way). The project is to help raise funds for Craola's first stop motion animated short film, "I'm Scared."

We are going to mix in and out of the press release and our own thoughts her. Last week at a three-day retreat in upstate New York, famed artist Marina Abramovic instructed super pop artist Lady Gaga in the Abramovic Method—a series of exercises designed to heighten participants' awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment.

LA based artist and longtime Juxtapoz friend, Damon Robinson, ("Praise the Lowered" and "Lucha Leisure" mask beanbag chairs) has surprised us yet again with his first "kids" book. The Wonderful Magical Superfantastical Musical Animals, is a graphically sophisticated and beautiful book for the kid in all of us.

Wall Writers Kickstarter

Graffiti // Thursday, August 02, 2012
The vast amount of Kickstarter projects is overwhelming and in the truth is the majority of them are not worth funding. However, it’s easy for us to support the documentation of some of first graffiti writers from 1967-1972. Here is a reasonable project for archival and history purposes relating to a creative subculture. And Roger Gastman has done an exceptional job at everything else in the documentation department.

Yesterday, Marshall launched a Kickstarer to finish the project, to gain funds to pay for editing, sound design and mix, vfx and wire removal, score, and color correction.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 08, 2011
You can wrap all your holiday presents in the same old red/green/ribbon concoction liked you always do, or you can wrap and arrange your own cheeseburger with your presents. Imagine getting that holiday sweater/scarf/underwear you never wanted, but wrapped in buns and meat? Ideal, we think.
