When I was out in Tokyo last year for Pow! Wow! my friends and I went out to visit Japanese artist Haroshi at his studio (his photo of us) and he gifted me this bullet made out of skateboards. I chose from a whole bunch and he could immediately tell what decks he’d used to make it based on the colours. I believe this one was made out of old Enjo boards. Anyways he’s one of my favourite artists and Alexander Mitchell just released a nice video portrait of him working in his studio which you can watch on Booooooom TV.

Designer Fernando Abellanas has constructed a tiny studio beneath a busy overpass in Spain. Complete with movable walls, light furnishings and a hand crank that transports the structure along two metal rails, the micro-dwelling hangs high above the ground in a manner reminiscent to the kind of secret hideaway or fort one might have as a child.
