We are proud to kick off the Fall season with a cover story on San Francisco-based fine artist Richard Colman. Richard's work has evolved and expanded so much since we last spoke to him in 2010, and his newest body of work continues to be an exploration on the way we as humans communicate and interact. We spent a few weeks with Richard in his studio in SF as well as around the city he calls home to catch a glimpse at the intricate details of the working artist's life.

We are excited about this one, as the show has a lot of our friends and artists we admire at the moment.

There will be ducks painted by Jason Jagel, Richard Colman, Nat Russell, Mel Kadel, Paul Wackers, Ryan Travis Christian, Brian Willmont, Allison Schulnik, and so many more we can't even name them.

We have been working with a few Andy Warhol projects over the past month, and we were happy to see this go up on Paddle8's auction site today: The Andy Warhol Foundation is proud to present this auction which includes original artwork inspired by Warhol’s work created by ten renowned artists (all artists who have been in Juxtapoz over the past year or two as well). Proceeds will benefit NURTUREart, a non-profit institute dedicated to nurturing new contemporary art by providing exhibition opportunities and resources for emerging artists, curators and public school students.

And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."

We launched Richard Colman's "Orbs" yesterday in Austin as part of Juxtapoz Projects during 2014 SXSW with Converse. We have been huge fans of Richard's art, a unique style that blends recognizable characters amidst abstract geometric patterns on both canvases and installations so we were very excited to collaborate with him on bringing his character to a new medium: weather balloons! Unfortunately yesterday a thief in the night snuck over and cut the Orbs loose! So keep an eye on the sky for a falling Richard Colman Orb!
