Hypebeast has just released the first part of their video coverage of this year’s POW WOW! This will give you a great idea what really went down in February. My friend Jasper is already working on next year’s event but he needs all the help he can get, so if you’d like to support the project jump over to the Kickstarter!
Just a quick bit of personal news – the good folks at Hypebeast interviewed me about the release of my shoe for Converse and a bit of my personal background! Read the interview here.
In case you missed it, the charity/launch event is Thursday Feb 19th – Livestock (1709 West 4th Vancouver)! All profits from shoes sold that night will be donated to The Global Fund! Come out and support a good cause and get some shoes to boot (I’m not totally sure if that’s a pun).
Here is a sneak peek at three tees I designed for Livestock’s Artist Series. The shirts will be released on Feb 19th at the Converse launch/charity event (that you are all invited to)! More incentive for you to come out to my party!
Hypebeast recently asked me to list five things I can’t live without as part of their Essentials series. The four of us who were asked are all currently involved in Vancouver’s street fashion scene. That’s me on the bottom left. To my right is Kenta, the creative genius behind Brknhome, and above me are my friends Matt and Vince (Finale Design).
Read my five essentials, here. Feel free to list your five essentials in the comments!
The good guys over at Hypebeast sent me the “Black Mamba” also known as the friends and family edition of the Subcrew x Hypebeast collaboration hat. I don’t think I can say much about their website that you don’t already know. Thanks Kev, Jason, and Eugene! (Thanks for being the mailman, Rich!) Cheers fellas.
I had the privilege of meeting James a.k.a. SheOne at a live painting event, that Addict Clothing put on, here in downtown Vancouver. We met up again and I had the chance to interview him while he painted some canvases for Anthony’s shop, Subdivision. I planned to have the video edited and on the net shortly after that, but I ended up getting swamped with a few other projects and since this was a personal one, it kinda got pushed to the backburner.
It has taken me awhile, but I am happy to finally get the opportunity to share this little video with you all. James is an amazingly talented artist and a down to earth human being, I am honored to call him a friend. This video is kinda like looking at an elephant through a keyhole; it’s but a small peek at the innerworkings of the artist known as SheOne. Enjoy.
