Since we first wrote about art prodigy Keiron Williamson, the Norfolk-based seven year old has netted a small fortune for his amazing artwork. Kieron’s just had a profitable weekend: his latest collection of paintings sold for £150,000 and all 33 works were out the door in just 30 minutes. Now that’s some good pocket money. Sure beats […]
We’ve followed Sydney’s ZANEROBE from the sporty retro ‘Summer World Series’ collection to their beautifully cut, pure wool classic suits. ZANEROBE’s latest collection – Game Day, Sunday – represents an opulent collision somewhere between the two. The tailored outerware collection includes woolen duffles, leather bombers and wax-coated twill jackets, all with the typical ZANEROBE attention to detail in the texture, trim, fit and wash.
The crew at hip Australian fashion label Insight have been busy building ramps every summer around the Czech Republic. You’ll notice the typical brash Insight humour and colour running through the installations. A nice initiative to help out with places to skate, and also to show a colourful side to skate culture.
I’m about to spend a week or so on the reefs of Oahu, so maybe I’m over-excited. But surfers and artists alike will find amusement and maybe some inspiration in this stop-motion film telling the story of surf trips and waves in a plastic world.
Karl Kwasny, also known as Monaux, has just embarked on a rather ambitious digital art book project - he’ll be publishing one illustration per week for two years. It’ll be one playful book when he’s done; you might recognise the Australian illustrator’s style from some recently released Insight51 and Mooks tees.
Clients From Hell documents the torture suffered by talented creatives at the hands of ignorant clients. It helps put things in perspective – if you’re having an awful day, a quick browse confirms there are others in similar positions who’ve been through worse than you have. Or maybe not. There’s some gold in the archives; some of our favourites are:
The Big Picture’s photo essays are some of the best around: insightful, timely and often confronting in the way great photo essays are. Complementing The Big Picture is The Big Caption, a parody site ‘wherein jokes and statements are made using typography’. Sometimes insightful and always snarky, it pairs poignant photography with blunt observations using a thread of hostility.
Archigram is recognised as an influencer of many of the world’s greatest contemporary architects and buildings. Exhibitions of their work from 1961-1974 have been touring major institutions worldwide since 1992, and Archigram was awarded the RIBA Gold Medal in 2002. Despite this, the architectural vision of Archigram is mainly unbuilt and the bulk of their visionary work remained difficult to access, largely stored domestically or in temporary storage.
During a recent visit to Australia, I picked up one of these Das Monk tees. I figured I’d bring a little piece of Down Under-style back to America with me. They’re a sweet fit and run just a touch longer than a few other brands I’ve worn, so they pair well with fitted jeans. save […]
Oh boy, this is neat. The Awesome Foundation provides funding to forward ‘the interest of Awesome in the universe’. As they say: ‘need some funding for your crazy brilliant idea? We award $1,000 grants every month. It couldn’t be simpler’. It started in Boston, and has chapters in Providence, NYC, and San Francisco. [art by […]
We’re not shy about our love of all things 80s, and Goldfrapp’s Rocket clip has taken us right back to a cloudy pastel world of big hair, synth optimism and glittering disco. We might just stay here for a while. Who’s in?
We’ve noticed an overwhelming number of hipster kids being photographed in need of the bathroom. The usual traits are legs crossed, feet turned in, desperation in the eye and holding on tight. It looks like we’re not the only ones. Hipsters Have To Pee is a photo-blog documenting the hilarity.
