Instead of some flashy video interview with some overarching complex concept, you just want the goods. And this video with internationally renowned designer Stefan Sagmeister of Sagmeister & Walsh is just those goods: an artist talking his craft, showing you his studio, give you a little morning inspiration. And the fact that WeTransfer is producing this Creative Class series is a really good, smart idea.

Low Bros, who were featured in our October 2013 issue, recently painted a world cup-inspired mural at Urban Spree in Berlin featuring cheetahs crouching around a soccer stadium and some favelas. Watch a video after the jump...

WIth Madlib on the cover of our August 2014 issue, we have been looking at some of our favorite Madlib music videos. Earlier this year, Madlib and Freddie Gibbs released an instant classic with Pinata, and here is Jonah Schwartz' video for the track, "Deeper."

Next Saturday, July 19th, Thinkspace will be presenting new works by Dutch artist Joram Roukes (April, 2013) in Paramnesia. Roukes has been residing and working in Los Angeles over the past six months, drawing inspiration from his time spent in the city for this new body of work. Combining imagery distilled from the observed and the imagined, the artist’s paintings invoke a schizophrenic contemporaneity colonized by both disaster and desire. Roukes’ works present us with fractured identities and chasmic experiences: frayed realities ambiguously dramatized through the aberrations of fantasy

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.

'This project came about when Bay Area filmmaker Sean Desmond asked me about the possibility of filming me paint on a human body in my Inner Richmond apartment. It was an exciting idea and I wanted to give it some narrative. I came up with a lost lover, reanimation tale that would include bits of ritual and ceremony...

We have been celebrating our special Madlib cover story on the site and through all of our social media channels all week, and we get to have a little fun playing with all of Madlib's projects over the years. Today, we look at the work Madlib has done with DOOM and Madvillain, and the fantastic superhero character that came out of the classic Madvillainy LP. And yes, that LP is 10 years old this year. Here is a look at the "All CAPS" video....
Juxtapoz // Monday, July 07, 2014
Juxtapoz is proud to announce a very special August 2014 issue, featuring one of our all-time favorite musicians, creatives, and all around artistic personas, Madlib. For years, we have followed Madlib's eclectic career, from Quasimoto, Madvillain, Jaylib, Yesterday's New Quintet, the Beat Konducta series, and everything in between. One common thread has always been the unique and artistically-driven alter egos that Madlib has given to the world, and in this issue, we talk to the musician about his world of music and art.

The female protagonist in this naughty music video is definition: man-eater. Clearly very in touch with her wild side, she prays on the men in her life while sitting pretty. We won't give away the ending but we will tell you one thing for sure: she's bad...
