Here is a good Friday midday break for you. We were checking at ROJO Magazine's site, and saw a video from Berlin-based visual artist and director Isaac Niemand, and saw great work on his Vimeo page.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 19, 2011
On December 30, 2010, just one day before everyone would be celebrating the new year, Kelie Bowman and Sto were busy celebrating a funeral at their gallery Cinders in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The Classic Album Cover Art of Alex Steinweiss

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 29, 2010
A few years ago (January 2008), we featured the great Jazz and Classical album cover artist, some call the "Original Album Cover Artist," Alex Steinweiss. In 1938, as a 23-year old, Steinweiss transformed the music industry that had previously sold records in blain brown paper sleeves. Steinweiss made the music come alive with coinciding artwork that reflected the music and mood that was found on vinyl. Some classic Steinweiss work after ther jump  . . .

Gorillaz and Artist Jamie Hewlett Give Away Free Album

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 27, 2010
Put this in the art rock category. Damon Albarn (of Blur origin) has been for so long considered to be the "face" of the animated Gorillaz group, that you forget the entire imagery of the band has been created by the talented Jamie Hewlett. Think about it: your parents probably know the work of Jamie Hewlett now, and chances are, unless they were very cool, they didn't know "Tank Girl." Hewlett and the Gorillaz team cap of a successful touring 2010 with a free album, "The Fall." Information after the jump . . .
