My friends Scien and Klor (123Klan) have just released a fantastic book (order it here) chronicling their work as artists on the street, and as a studio for clients like Nike, Stussy, Carhartt, many others.
Lots of great reference material here if you’re a graphic designer! I get to keep a copy for myself and give the other one away, so who wants it?
If you wanna snag the book tell me the name of your graffiti crew (make one up if you don’t actually have one) in the comments below!
Heads up Vancouver, James Blake is rolling through town on the 19th, playing Vogue Theatre with Nosaj Thing! I’ve also heard that James Blake’s dj collective 1-800-Dinosaur will be back here again in April. Anyways, this show is going to be epic and I have a pair of tickets to give away!
If you wanna go to the show tell me your favourite song by James Blake or Nosaj Thing in the comments below. If you have a story or specific memory tied to the song I wanna hear it!
Ultimate Ears, a brand of Logitech, have created a pretty spectacular Bluetooth speaker called the UE Boom. I’m not just posting about this because its name happens to be Boom, I was sent one of them to test out and it’s become my go-to wireless speaker.
It’s loud as hell, and actually pretty heavy for its size, but that’s probably why the low end sounds pretty good on it. Anyways, I wouldn’t be giving one away to you unless it was a quality product. So who wants it?
*Edit – I actually have five(5) speakers to give away! So I’m extending the giveaway until end of day Monday.
This week’s giveaway is a copy of pop artist Brandon Bird’s “Astonishing World of Art” activity book. Bird was one of the first artists I ever posted about on this site, way back in 2008 (remember Seinfeld wielding the nunchucks?), and he’s remained a personal favourite.
The artist is known for putting celebrities into the most bizarre situations, his painting “Nobody Wants To Play Sega With Harrison Ford” is one of my favourites.
If you’d like to snag this book, leave a comment below with a request for a celebrity in a bizarre situation. I’ve posted a bunch of images below to inspire your suggestions, there’s a video too!
I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is summer is nearly gone, it’s painful to even say it. But the good news is I’ve got a giveaway from my friends at Northern Sun that’s perfect for the fall season.
I’ve got a men’s Aput Jacket and a women’s Aga Jacket to give away! Both are water resistant and premium down filled, and as promised this one’s open to everyone. If you’d like to snag either jacket, leave a comment below describing the first adventure you’ll go on.
We’ll pick two winners September 13th.
Urbanears hooked me up with a pair of their newly launched RePlattan series of headphones. These headphones are all made of unused parts from previous seasons instead of letting them go to waste!
The coolest part is they’ve built in a personal ID and GPS coordinates that cover 5 square meters of rainforest. As soon as you purchase a pair of headphones that specific area of rainforest is protected.
They estimate that 500 ants, 10 flowers, 5 spiders and 2 butterflies live in each of those little squares, maybe even a bird, or a tree, or a frog, or a tree frog, or even a bird frog (they never said this).
I also got a little adapter called a Slussen, which lets you dj from your iPhone (the video below explains it better).
So now I get to giveaway one of each to one of you as well! Leave a comment below with the first song you’d listen to. I’ll pick a winner next Friday, have a great weekend.
