Booooooom x Poketo

It’s been hard to keep this a secret, but it is a secret no more! I have joined forces with my friends at Poketo to release a collection of wallets designed by four Canadian artists!

Booooooom x Poketo collaboration Afterlife Wallet Series

Several months ago I asked Andrea Wan, Winnie Truong, Josh Holinaty, and Howie Tsui to each create images based on their interpretation of the “After Life”. What happens to us after we die?

Over the next couple weeks I will be posting an interview with each artist to give you some more insight into their work and will end each interview by giving away one of our wallets!

If you’d like to purchase a wallet (or four) jump over here.

Take a closer look at the wallets below!

I suppose you deserve an extra juicy bit of information for scrolling all the way down here. Well here it is! Our next project is also a collaboration with Poketo and it launches in one week. So if you looked at these wallets and you wished you had the chance to design one yourself, wish granted.

In the meantime you can get a better look at the wallets over here.

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
