Fortune Sound Club

This Wednesday is the grand opening of my friend Garret’s new club, Fortune Sound – and he wanted me to invite you all! RSVP here with your full name and ‘GRAND OPENING’. 147 East Pender. Chinatown. 9pm.

Things you should know:

1. It’s Vancouver’s only club built for sound, boasting a $250,000 sound system, one of the biggest in North America.

2. Shepard Fairey has an amazing 60 ft installation going all the way up the stairs (the widest he’s ever made).

3. My friend Kenta Goto (Brknhome) and Rick Klotz (Freshjive) are designing crazy private rooms at the back of the club.

4. There will be a Booooooom party here in the future.

Fortune Sound Club has been open for the past couple weeks unofficially, and it really is one of the few fun clubs in town (that’s me in the red waiting for Keys N Krates to start).

Hope to see you there Wednesday! (It’s gonna be CRAZY!)

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
