We have a long history with Mr. Jeremy Fish. He used to work in our offices with Think Skateboards, honing his chops as one of our favorite skateboard artists of all time. He then spread his wings and became one of the most popular and beloved artists we’ve had the honor to cover in our magazine, from fine-art shows and European tours to album covers and illustrations. As chance would have it, he is one of just a handful of artists to make the cover of Juxtapoz twice. We consider him family.

In February 2011, we ran a special cover story on one of the most influential and renowned political poster artists in the United States, former Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party, Emory Douglas. Today we take a look back at that cover story, shot and covered so eloquently by Shaun Roberts, as one of our all-time favorite stories of the past two decades.

During the latter part of 2013, while art collectors, scenesters, and revelers were enjoying the warm days of Art Basel Miami Beach, the Heidelberg Project in Detroit was under attack. Long considered one of the most enduring and challenging public art projects in the United States, Juxtapoz contributing editor Austin McManus interviewed Heidelberg founders Tyree Guyton and Jenenne Whitfiled in the midst of one of the more popular houses being burnt to the ground. What follows was a remarkable conversation of the merits of public art, DIY creativity, and the preservation of the American Dream.

Misaki Kawai has always been a favorite on the Juxtapoz staff because her work can transform spaces from a white walled gallery into a wild world of playful imagination. Her works at first appear kid friendly, bright and colorful and inviting. Her installations are larger than life cartoons come to life, a sketchbook of ideas that transform into a special universe you can live in. This is our interview with the artist from August 2012, by our contributing editor, Kristin Farr.

And so now we come to the end of the line, the last moments of 2013. It was hard picking the best features of our print edition this year, but we tried our best to narrow it down to some unique stories, from Asger Carlsen, Geoff McFetridge, Bruce Davidson, and Julie Nord, just to name a few of the standout art we covered. Today, we end with Todd James' exceptional cover story from the December 2013 issue, done by contributing editor Joey Garfield from the artist's studio in NYC... enjoy!

We have almost covered our Best of 2013 print edition features, and today we look at our November 2013 feature on Alex Kopps, a multi-talented artist who does film, painting, surf, photography, and occasionally likes to write GOTHIC DOLPHIN on things. A man who can make anything out of something. A true artist, here is our conversation with the Northern California-based artist.

Look! It's almost the new year, and we have been counting down the days with some of our favorite features from the 2013 print editions of Juxtapoz. Today, we look at Berlin-based fine artists and muralists the Low Bros, who consistently have been adding a bit of late 1980s, early '90s style and flair to both the streets and the gallery scene. This feature first appeared in Juxtapoz in the October 2013 edition.
