Big Bad Wolf


Just want to congratulate my close friends Jasper and his wife Amy for opening their new shop out in Hawaii! Last year the two started a fun little clothing brand aimed at kids ages 2-10, called Big Bad Wolf, and it’s really grown a lot since then. Artists like James Jean, Madsteez, and Brendan Monroe (tee pictured above) have already collaborated with them, and there’s a laundry list of future collaborators on their site.

I honestly just wanted to use this an excuse to post this photo of their daughter Ella’s chubby arms. If you’ve got a kid, follow them on Instagram @bigbadwolfkids.

Earlier this year we teamed up with WeTransfer to profile a diverse group of artists and investigate their creative motivations while they made work at the Pow! Wow!

Dear Data: A Fascinating Year-Long Hand-Drawn Data Visualisation Project


Designers Giorgia Lupi (New York) and Stefanie Posavec (London) recently launched a fascinating postcard project called Dear Data. Each week the two data artists measure one aspect of their daily lives and then represent that information with a drawing on a postcard. Every Monday they put their postcards into the mail to journey across the ocean to the other and begin collecting data for the next postcard. Having only met twice in person, this project is as much about the two of them getting to know one another as it is about finding creative ways to record details of their own lives.

There are so many interesting details in the notes they make for each other; instructions on how to decode the often extremely abstract ways they’ve represented their findings, as well as little tidbits about their day. The topics they choose for each week vary from people and purchases they make to emotions and the number of times they look at themselves in a mirror or window.

I love the analog and imperfect nature of the project; I think it makes the idea of data visualisation more accessible. I’ve included a bunch of their postcards below. Head over to their site to see larger images (they’re worth reading).

Mural Recap: Pow! Wow! Hawaii

james-jeanMural by James Jean

There were so many incredible murals painted at this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii event. It’s impossible to the fully appreciate these works without seeing them in person so maybe you’ll have to fly out to Honolulu and find them.

All the images in this post were painstakingly shot by Brandon Shigeta, who had to wake up extremely early (and also wait around for hours) to catch some of these without cars blocking them. He’s one of the hardest working people at this event every year.

I hope people in Honolulu realise how special this is; Vancouver is dying for something like this. Keep in mind, this post doesn’t even include all the work that was produced this year!

POW! WOW! Paints Hawaiian Airlines


Hawaiian Airlines is a big reason why my friends out in Hawaii are able to make the massive Pow! Wow! mural festival happen each year. Each year the airline covers the flights of many of the world’s best artists for the event, and recently they invited artists to put their work all over the runway. This really illustrates to me the way the Pow! Wow! organizers have grown their event in a few short years; it’s the product of building lasting relationships with people and companies, making sure everyone benefits. If you’re organizing an annual event you could learn a lot from the way they’re going about things.

Watch the video below of the Hawaiian Airlines ground service vehicles getting the Pow! Wow! treatment. I’m already looking forward to February!
