If you want to escape the real world for a bit, escape into the vivid, satirical artwork of illustrator/cartoonist Alex Gamsu Jenkins.
Jenkins is from the suburbs of London and graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2015. He describes his work as an exploration of "satirical and critical subject matter through a distinctive and vivid style.” He also tries to “avoid the pretence but wallow in humour, whilst touching on the absurd and surreal."
Jenkins' work has appeared in Juxtapoz, The New York Times, Vice, Society Magazine, and many other notable publications. Much of his work is disturbing and creepy, but in a fun way by creating an entire reality of its own -- one that feels like a chaotic and absurd dream.
Juxtapoz recently posted some wildly cool pieces by Jenkins on its website. You can check all of them out here.

Everybody’s flown a paper airplane. But what if you could fly on a paper airplane? Until we invent shrink-ray technology, the PowerUp X FPV Video Paper Airplane Kit will have to do – but it’s as fun as that sounds and more. The original version of this creative toy added drone tech to the old, […]
