I made some T-shirts for Aritzia!

jeffhamada-lanotte

Not too long ago I was approached by Aritzia to make some t-shirts for their new line, La Notte. I don’t know anything about women’s fashion but I thought it would be fun to work with one of Vancouver’s largest brands.

I designed a little collection of five t-shirts for them, and I called it “Dreaming About Living The Dream”. I’m not sure how many t-shirts were made in total, but if you want one they are now for sale over HERE.

This week I’ll be launching a project on our Instagram and giving away two complete sets of t-shirts, so stay tuned for that!

Experimental Artist Petros Vrellis Creates Detailed Portraits With A Single Thread

 

Born in Greece, with a background in Electrical Engineering as well as Art Science, artist Petros Vrellis has a passion for creating interactive installations that blend art and technology. His latest project is a mesmerizing re-imagining of traditional handicraft.

Using a 28″ aluminum-rimmed loom, Petros runs a single thread from one anchor peg to another to create just the right density and darkening at precise intersections. The end result is a detailed image that emerges from 3000 – 4000 continuous loops (or 1-2 kilometers of thread)!

While Petros is following a set pattern developed from a computer-generated algorithm, as you can see in the time-lapsed video above, the step-by-step process is all done by hand. We had the chance to speak with Petros about his experimental process and why hand-made work still has a place in the digital age. Check out the full interview below!
