The video below shows a couple more of the designs. If you’d like to snag this rug leave a comment below with a useless random fact (the random facts on this post were too good not to do it again). I’ll let Matt pick a winner on Friday.
This week I’m giving away four camera straps courtesy of Cecilia. A little bit about the straps:
“The full-grain leather is selected from premium Argentinian cowhides. The hides are finished in the USA with surface treatments that give the leather its durability. The alpaca textiles are handwoven by weavers in the Peruvian highlands. The backstrap loom weaving techniques and traditional patterns are a heritage of Andean culture. Sourced from mills in the USA, the reinforced webbing runs through the ends of the straps to ensure strength and reliability. The straps are assembled in León, Mexico. We work with some of the most experienced artisans of leather goods to craft a product of The Americas.”
If you’d like to snag one of these camera straps, leave a comment below and upload a photo you have taken recently. I’ll let the folks at Cecilia pick their four favourite images in two weeks (4 different winners).
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
CONGRATULATIONS TO: Maria Fernanda G, Matt Skuza, Alex Couture & Guilherme Viñas
My favourite comic artist Brecht Vandenbroucke finally has his book “White Cube” released in North America. Book publisher Drawn & Quarterly has given me a copy to give away to one of you. If you’d like to snag it, tell me a useless fact in the comments below! We’ll pick a winner on April 11th.
This week’s giveaway comes courtesy of photographer Nguan, born and raised in Singapore. He gifted me his beautiful book “How Loneliness Goes” and has graciously offered up the very last book from the edition, #220 of 220, for one of you.

My friend Rebecca Chaperon gave me two signed copies of her new book “Eerie Dearies”, featuring a painting for each letter of the alphabet. I’m keeping one book, and I’ll give the other one to anyone willing to come get it from me (meaning someone in, or close to, Vancouver).
Have a peek inside the book below. If you wanna snag the book leave a comment with a sentence about your favourite letter of the alphabet.
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!
