Big Bad Wolf

My friends Jasper and Amy have started a fun little clothing brand, aimed at kids ages 2-10, called Big Bad Wolf. Designs will be released each month from an impressive list of artists including: James Jean, Nychos, Dabs Myla, Tristan Eaton, Andrea Wan, Evah Fan, Madsteez, and many others. The shirt above was designed by artist Yoskay Yamamoto.

Something tells me they’re gonna do alright! You can follow the project on Instagram @bigbadwolfkids.

POW! WOW! TAIWAN / PART I

POWWOW-TAIWAN-01

Pow! Wow! Taiwan has officially begun! I’ve been out in Taipei for a week now, and it has quickly become one of my favourite cities (the food miiight have something to do with it). Here’s a quick re-cap of the first couple days. If you want to follow along on Instagram I’m posting to @Booooooom and you can follow @PowWowTaiwan as well.

We started with a tour of all the potential walls in the city (photo above: Madsteez and Brendan Monroe), which was followed by the official opening of the event. Yesterday we had a little rain delay, so most of the artists are getting started today. James Jean, Kristen Farr, and Mr.Ogay were among the artists able to put some work in, and you can see images of their progress at the bottom of this post.

Lots of images below, have a look!

James Jean “Parallel Lives” iBook Giveaway

James Jean Parallel Lives iBook Giveaway
Coinciding with James Jean’s show at New York City’s Tilton Gallery earlier this year, was the release of his “Parallel Lives” book. The limited edition of 1,000 signed and numbered books sold out in a single day.

Soon after that James mysteriously vanished. While the artist remains underground, his publisher Pressure Printing has just released an electronic version of his catalog. This version comes with an additional 179 behind-the-scenes process images, I like seeing how his work changes as he goes.

I have a digital copy to give away! If you wanna snag it, leave a haiku message to James in the comments below!

(Lots more images below as well!)
