  • Excellent post. Hi Don!

    • Thanks Alejandra!!!
      Here is a new one I just made…”King James”, pipe cleaners, 30x30x6 inches, 2010 by Don Porcella
      http://www.donporcella.blogspot.com

      I made this as the third sculpture in a series that includes “Air Jordan”, “Kobe” and now “King James”. The leg is severed because the brand becomes more important than the player as the ever popular shoe culture aims to package the experience. I had my early Air Jordan’s stolen and ever since then I have tried to recreate that experience in art. The severed leg is me getting my shoes stolen. I guess Cleveland feels that way now…

      see my blog for the images of all the shoes http://donporcella.blogspot.com/2010/05/8-new-links-about-don-porcellas-art.html

  • The little stuff is perfect.
    More of that.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
