3D Art: uniting stoners and art lovers alike

Tristan Eaton Reader Find

By Tristan Eaton in New Events on Saturday 30 April 2011

For fourteen years, I’ve had an unhealthy fascination (bordering on obsession) with stereoscopic 3D art. It started with silk-screen prints, moved into 3D collaborations with my peers, and has culminated in my first book project: The 3D Art Book. Prestel Publishing has generously brought me aboard to make this project a reality and it’s really a dream come true.

DJ Z-Trip

By Tristan Eaton in New Music on Wednesday 18 February 2009

Where to start with Z-Trip? Shepard Fairey propped him on this site a few weeks back, but let’s face it: the guy is worth a double post. He’s the king of the mash-up, a dance floor master, and the humblest guy you’ll meet. If you haven’t heard of him (unlikely), then go to his website […]

Candy from Myers of Keswick

Tristan Eaton Reader Find

By Tristan Eaton in New Products on Saturday 7 February 2009

This little Greenwich Village shop is a blast from the past for me. From 1985 to 1993, I lived in West London and have always missed British candy and special foods. Low and behold, Myers of Keswick has it all. Weetabix cereal, Quality Street candy, Scotch Eggs, PG Tips tea! It’s absolutely amazing. But it’s […]

Forget Macy’s, Bloomingdales and all that: Army Surplus is where it’s at. Half my wardrobe is from Army Surplus.

Complete Technique

By Tristan Eaton in New Products on Tuesday 3 February 2009

I’m not much of a jewelry guy, but if bling is in order, it’s ordered from my man Osa at Complete Technique. Originally from Japan, Osa is now based in Dumbo, Brooklyn and makes the finest metal jewelry, on par with any of his ancestor’s samurai swords. From speaker rings to turntable pendants, it’s all […]

Three dimensional artwork [glasses not included]

Tristan Eaton Reader Find

By Tristan Eaton in New Art on Tuesday 3 February 2009

I’ve loved 3D art ever since I was a kid, especially the kind that requires 3D glasses to really appreciate it. My studio, Thunderdog, is working on an art book right now of just three dimensional art, featuring a hundred artists. It should be out next Christmas.

Philadelphia

By Tristan Eaton in Cool Travel on Monday 2 February 2009

in 2008, I went to Philadelphia six times and I have to say, I love that city. It’s got the blue collar grit of cities like Detroit and Cleveland, but still has a big city vibe. Great galleries, great bars, and great food. If you go, be sure to check out Jinxed toy store.

Brunch at Brooklyn Label

Tristan Eaton Reader Find

By Tristan Eaton in Cool Travel on Monday 26 January 2009

I’ve been living in Greenpoint Brooklyn for a couple of years now and one of the highlights is brunch on the weekends. After living in Crown Heights for seven years, where your only choices are Tom’s Diner or Popeye’s Fried Chicken, it’s an amazing change of pace. Brooklyn Label is a classic, old Brooklyn style […]

Chris Ware

Tristan Eaton Reader Find

By Tristan Eaton in New Art on Saturday 24 January 2009

Chris Ware is my favorite comic book artist. If there’s a new Chris Ware book out, I buy it, no questions asked. He writes the most somber, sad stories about the simplest of people, but they’re written and illustrated with such beauty and elegance. All of the text and graphic design is done by hand. It’s absolutely mind blowing.

Playsam toys

Tristan Eaton Reader Find

By Tristan Eaton in New Products on Saturday 24 January 2009

When it comes to toys, these guys really know what they’re doing. Playsam is one of my favorite toy companies. They’re based in Sweden and they make extremely polished, minimal toys for children. Their designs are classic and extremely expensive, but well worth it. When I have kids, I’ll spoil them with these.
