Drew Young's work currently focuses on lost and found adolescence. He believes we live in a world that is self-indulgent in primal behavior and lost in a wilderness of forgotten morality and values. The Vancouver, BC-based Young's images strongly reflect our own life experiences of these dark and visceral moments and places. If anything, he's giving us an external view of our own slef-gratifying exploits.

We had a great stop by in the office this week; Vancouver-based fine artist Andrew Pommier was in town finishing a mural at Juice's office, and he stopped by to see us at Juxtapoz and Thrasher. Pommier has really changed his style over the past few years, and his At The Time of Fear body of work from 2010 and new works from the last year have caught our eye.

Naked Beasts!!! Vancouver Island based artist Drew Mosley’s work is started from coffee and tea stains, he then adds inks and/or acrylics creating illustrations of little animals and friends that appear to be expressing their freedom into the vastness of the great outdoors. Unburdened by fur, unlike their normal animal counterparts, these creatures are born free!

Janice Wu is a Vancouver-based artist who is currently finishing up her BFA in illustration at the Emily Carr Art University. Her gouache drawings exhibit a joy of observation and a elevation of the banal. The easily identified clutter from the everyday remind us of our own experiences and associations with these objects while simultaneously bringing us in with the exceptional craft and detail of their rendering.
