Juxtapoz x Adobe: Looking back on Jeremy Fish, Cover Artist, October 2011Published October, 2011 Vault // Tuesday, 08 Jul 2014
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.
This past June, we announced a special project between Adobe, Juxtapoz, and Jeremy: together with a few friends, he will be creating an animated mural that utilizes both the new updates to Adobe Creative Cloud and the new creative hardware Adobe Ink & Slide. The premise was simple enough: What if Fish took 100 drawings that at once delineate his history and tell a special story about San Francisco, and then 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? Using Adobe Illustrator CC, Photoshop CC, After Effects CC, and the collaboration features in Adobe Creative Cloud, Fish and friends will work together to bring the mural to life.
As you have seen on Juxtapoz.com in the past few weeks, we have been introduced to Fish’s new animation project as well as to the making of his next solo show, Yesterdays and Tomorrows, opening at FFDG on August 15, 2014. To mark the occasion, here is a retrospective look at our last cover story on Fish (October 2011)—a distinct survey of the unique practice and discipline that has made this artist so successful.
Stay tuned for more videos, and go see Jeremy’s new show at FFDG in San Francisco on August 15, 2014.
