As mailboxes are starting to get filled with April 2012 issues of Juxtapoz, we think it may be time to make our announcement of the issue. In honor of his longtime friend, and legendary artist, we have a special piece on the legacy of Big Daddy Roth and his infamous Rat Fink character by Robert Williams. As we embark on our 18th year as a print publication, we wanted to give a historical perspective of one of our earliest inspirations.
The April 2012 will also feature articles and interviews on twins and public mural machines HowNosm, Spanish artist Liqen who has become a staple in our Juxtapoz Street Art department, album cover artist and illustrator and cult-followed John Baizley, New Mexico-based fine artist and surfer Esteban Bojorquez, and a look at Maine-based Matt W. Moore's abstract public works.
