In conjunction with the upcoming release of MARLEY, Kevin Macdonald's feature documentary on the life of Bob Marley, July 2006 cover artist Phil Frost participates in this video where he talks about the influence of Marley on his art and career. Normally staying away from the limelight, this is interesting just hear Frost talk about his inspirations and influences. A great watch.

Juxtapoz contributing illustrator and political cartoonist, Munk One, made a special edition print for Blink 182's 20th anniversary print series, in which the band is releasing a new print each month to celebrate the year.

When SF-based visual artist Jason Jagel spent the night on the oversized chair at the Stones Throw house back in 2002 the same night Madlib crashed on the couch directly across from him, Jagel knew right away he had stumbled across a unique individual. “I remember Madlib mumbling in his sleep, sounding uncannily, but not surprisingly like his music,” remarks Jagel.

Something hypnotic, something mesmerizing to start your morning. Nine plus minutes, three quiet, ethereal songs, one artist by the name of Karina Eibatova taking black and white flowers out of her mouth, continually, and placing them on her face, all done to the music of the very talented Washed Out.

We have always been huge fans of photographer Neil Krug's photography and filmmaking, which we have always thought of as a neo-psychedelic sexual revolution, apocalyptic, Fear and Loathing in the Desert, lost roll of film and now developed 40 years kind of an experience. Maybe that is what it is.

You know we love a good LEGO art project, and we are really enjoying Aaron Savage's collection of famous album covers reimagined in LEGOS. We never thought Bowie, Pink Floyd, Saturday Night Fever or the Smiths would looks so good in LEGOS. Can you guess most of the covers? Plenty after the jump . . .

When we look back on some of the better albums we have listened to in the Jux offices this year, Lykke Li's Wounded Rhymes and Shabazz Palaces' Black Up were tops on our list. We just learned that artist and creative director Leif Podhajsky designed artwork for both artists this year, as well as a group of great underground musicians and projects.

You have to love a band like Fleet Foxes, who release a critically acclaimed debut only to be just as solid on their sophomore effort. FF frontman Robin Pecknold's brother, Sean, just created this fantastic animation video for the epic track "The Shine/An Argument" off Fleet Foxes 2011 LP, Helplessness Blues. Great work. Stacey Rozich, whom we have profiled in the magazine before, did the character illustrations.
