Joshua Carlton at Work

Tattoo // Sunday, July 29, 2012
Here is a sweet video of Joshua Carlton doing what he does best. He is using vibrant Alla Prima Pigments and says of the ink, "One of my favorite things about using alla prima is that it translates well into a more natural looking tattoo. I love how I have the choice of high or low chroma to get the exact effect I am after." Joshua creates some super realistic and beautiful portraits on skin and you should definitely check out more of his work.

We saw this last week, and forgot to mention it here on the site! Miami-based artists, Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, aka FriendsWithYou, just created this short animatio, Cloudy, featuring their signature style and minimal character design with a playful, soulful piece. Or as FWY say, "a sweet, visual soundscape that takes the viewer through a personal journey into the sky. Sing, dance and relax as you follow a cast of clouds and raindrops through an entrancing adventure you'll wish to take over and over again."

Famous Faces Behind the Scenes Captured by Michael Tighe

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 21, 2012
Faces are the main way people are recognized, unless you suffer from prosopagnosia (a disorder that the famed painter Chuck Close is diagnosed with). The power of the face is what makes images of pop culture celebrities so compelling: they speak to the masses in a way that many other images cannot. What is great about these photographs by Michael Tighe is seeing these iconic faces out of their usual contexts and often times capturing the movie stars in their personal homes.
