This gorgeous new little series 'La Petit Mort' comes from a reader submission I received from Natalie Krim. As an ongoing series, these adorable renderings are a little different than the previous drawings we've seen from her, but are taken from her journal and are a bit more intimate. Thanks Natalie.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
