Completely speechless, I honestly didn't know how to react. I stared at the screen in disbelief for a while then proceeded to jump up and down
See? It means a lot to me.
Juxtapoz was the first art magazine full of art that resonated with me. It wasn't the art of dust filled museums. It's modern and more relate-able to our current culture. This was before i ever heard of low brow or pop surrealism.
The first issue I bought had the haunting work of Lori Earley on the cover. It was that moment, the summer before i started college, that i knew what i wanted. Not to draw graphic novels or a fashion designer, but to paint. Thank you Juxtapoz! Cheers!
