"I was raised during the height of the cold war, when the threat of nuclear war loomed between two superpowers. The dramatized depictions in tv and film of such an apocalyptic demise both intrigued and scared me as a child, yet the actual historical record of the atomic age was full of antiquated, black and white images that seemed dated and a world away. This series re-contextualizes a legacy of atomic bomb tests in order to keep the ongoing nuclear threat fresh and omnipresent. . . "

In our last video following the progress of Jeremy Fish’s animated mural for his exhibition “Yesterdays and Tomorrows,” we were introduced to filmmaker, artist, and technical guru Brady Baltezore. Baltezore has been taking Fish’s 100 drawings, all done on 11x14-inch paper, and transforming them into one continuous animation that will be projected on a wall in North Beach in San Francisco.

At some point in the process of making his mural animation, Jeremy Fish was going to have to go to summer school — the Brady Baltezore School — where he would learn about all the advantages of Adobe’s latest updates to Creative Cloud.

For the past few months, we have been following a special project between Adobe, Juxtapoz, and Jeremy Fish, in which Fish will be creating an animated mural that utilizes the new updates to Adobe Creative Cloud and the new creative hardware, Adobe Ink & Slide. Previously we had asked, “What if Fish took his 100 drawings—telling not only his history but also a special story about San Francisco—and created an animation that could be projected in a public space in the city for passersby to see as part of a moving-mural experience?” At the end of July 2014, Fish will be projecting the mural in the North Beach neighborhood, which he calls home.

We have a long history with Mr. Jeremy Fish. He used to work in our offices with Think Skateboards, honing his chops as one of our favorite skateboard artists of all time. He then spread his wings and became one of the most popular and beloved artists we’ve had the honor to cover in our magazine, from fine-art shows and European tours to album covers and illustrations. As chance would have it, he is one of just a handful of artists to make the cover of Juxtapoz twice. We consider him family.

If you remember, Spike Jonze's film "HER" had a bunch of really fantastic artistic touches, not to mention some fantastic film sequences shot in Shanghai. Juxtapoz cover artist Geoff McFetridge covered office walls with his drawings, and today, we wanted to take another look at David OReilly's animation work that coincided with shots inside Joaquin Phoenix's apartment. The "Alien Child" hologram sequences were all designed, 3d modeled, and composed by the former Jux feature artist OReilly. Another great example of how great filmmakers like Jonze are including the best of the best in art to help create his films.
