“Before Life” / Finalists

Last month we launched our “Before Life” project with Poketo and we finally have our finalists but we need your help to choose which one to make into a wallet! Oh yeah, everyone who votes is eligible to win one of the wallets!

We received nearly 300 submissions so narrowing them down was not easy! I picked my favourites, the Poketo team picked theirs, and after some arm wrestling we were left with these 5 designs:

poketo x booooooom wallet finalists

Poketo will produce 50 pieces of the winning design to be sold alongside the works of 200 other international artists. The winner gets 20 of the 50 limited edition wallets to keep and one of you voters snags a wallet too!

Voting ends Wednesday 9pm PST.

Wishery

Nick Bertke (aka Pogo) has just released another masterpiece onto Youtube. This time around it’s the vocal samples, musical chords, and sound effects from Snow White that get sliced and diced. AMAZING.

That remix of Alice in Wonderland is waaaaay cooler now. I am going to load every music video ever made into this thing! BRB (in a thousand years).

Kristin Elder

Digging these paintings by Kristin Elder. They all seem to have the playfulness and dark undertones of something like Alice in Wonderland.

Flying Lotus / Essential Mix

I finally got around to listening to the Flying Lotus Essential Mix and it lives up to all the hype! This is experimental hip hop done right – a fantastic two-hour adventure. Flying Lotus hails from California and is signed to Warp (if you are familiar with Warp you will know what you’re in for). The mix fittingly starts off with Galaxy in Turiya by Alice Coltrane, wife of John Coltrane and Flying Lotus’ great aunt!
