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.

Juxtapoz has been lucky enough to document many different art movements as they have grown over the last 20 years. A benefit that Juxtapoz provides readers is the chance to watch an artist create. Over the next month, we are following two-time Juxtapoz cover artist Jeremy Fish as he builds a moving-mural animation in anticipation of his next solo exhibition, Yesterdays and Tomorrows.

If you have a light stomach, maybe this isn't for you? Utrecht photographer Ashkan Honarvar (Utrecht is a really nice town, by the way), has created this series called "Faces 5", where he has created a mutilated face and replaced the blood and injury with frosting, candy sprinkles, and what appears to be candy canes.

San Francisco artist Jeremy Fish has played a major role not only in Juxtapoz’s growth over the last two decades, but also in the growing movement of artists who grew up in skateboarding and who have formed successful careers in exhibiting art. Not only that, but we consider Fish a friend. He’s a two-time Juxtapoz cover artist, and we look forward to all his immersive paintings and explorations into narrative-based exhibitions.

We spend a lot of time in the Juxtapoz offices speaking with artists about the newest and best art materials, whether it be spray paint, acrylics, brushes, tablets, etc. There is a ton of great innovation happening, but one of our favorite companies at the moment, who blends both technology, new media platforms, and the desires of an old-school pen and ink artist is Adonit with their fantastic line of pressure sensitive stylus tools for digital artists. Today, Adonit just released the Jot Touch with Pixelpoint™, with a new design and special partnership and integration with Adobe's Creative Cloud.
