Liz Mcgrath's Blog on Juxtapoz

So it looks like Juxtapoz.com has gone through a little transformation, their website has been modernized and one thing Im really not too happy about is all the adverts they have poping up while your reading, or every other post now is an advert!! What happend! Well beside that little disapointment there is a new blogger that has just joined Juxtapoz.. and its the lovely Los Angeles-born artist Elizabeth McGrath!. Now we can follow Liz on her exciting life between being a rock star to being a super star artist..this girl has got talent! She is on tour now with her band Miss Derringer, and her first blog post goes through the last 40 days spent on a bus traveling across the country, and they visit some pretty amazing places! Read HERE!

"Liz has always had an eye for the strange beauty in the grotesqueries of life; this appreciation is nowhere more evident than in her work. Inspired by the relationship between the natural world and the detritus of consumer culture, she brings forth a new cavalcade of creatures from the darker corners of the streets, the city, the imagination. It is this melancholy interaction between man-made status symbols and suffering specimens of nature that make up her intricate body of work. Today she lives in Downtown LA with her hairless dogs Blue and King Tut, and her Husband Morgan Slade. They play together in the band Miss Derringer. "
