Adidas Splitpiece

September30

Earlier today we posted a sick little piece of graf from Falko One, it would seem that this piece is part of a much bigger picture from Adidas Originals which will see several more pieces from Falko One. The project aims to own the link between modern street art and fashion in an uniquely South African Context and they have definately peeked my interest. Each Mural will have a rad little papercraft character, available from Adidas Concept Stores. Check out the first one “O’Bra” below:

The whole campaign will culminate in a street party, lets just say these little characters could get you on the guest list, for more info become a fan on facebook

New 2Tone Dunny Series

September24

While we all knew it was coming, I don’t think anyone was expecting it quite so soon. Kidrobot has dropped the bomb shell and the new 2Tone series is now available. While not quite proper duo tone in my eye, these are still pretty kick ass. Participating artists include: Ryan Bubnis, Aaron Meshon, Huck Gee, Tad Carpenter, Steven Harrington, Chuckboy, Maxx242, Aye Kakeda, Doktor A, Pon, Angry Woebots, McBess and Gary Baseman. My favourite is definately the McBess and that says a lot considering there is a Angry Woebots in the series.

You can check out the rest of the series after the hop:

Nothing like some nice 7-ply Canadian Maple to brighten up your day, I have always thought that the skateboard deck is one of the best mediums for true unrestricted design. Enjoy this collection of decks from around the interwebs.
