I dont think a single piece of graf has brought as big a smile to my face in a long time, it may be a little obscure, but damn it’s brilliant!

David Choe hits up Denver

January24

I have always had a fascination for David Choe, this guy must be the most passionate “Live your Art” artist I have ever bared witness to. There are very few artists who will bleed (literally) for their art. These new pieces from Choe on the streets of Denver (for the Terminal Kings project) feature his typical bright coloured, acid dropped, culture inspired brilliance.

Taking it further

January16

Here is a little something I was busy with over the weekend, I wanted to take the Iron Snake down a slightly different route. So I decided to work on a design for a skate deck, although I think it makes a pretty rad poster print as well. Let me know what you think.

Back to the Basics

January16

So while it’s not that seldom that I have a paintbrush in hand, it has become pretty rare that you would find me dropping some pencil and ink. So this past weekend I decided to get back to basics and do some hand drawings. Kinda looking for something new again and I definitely think this has merit going forward. What do you guys think…? You can see the finished product after the hop. Oh and sorry for the pics, straight off my phone.

Choice Cuts

January16

When the news on the Lustre Gloss Labbits from Kozik broke I must say I was pretty annoyed. In my opinion it was yet another money maker from Kidrobot, with about as much creativity or ingenuity as a brick. This new piece however landing on the 9th Feb ($80) actually tickles my fancy, its simple, yet clever and you can see that more than 5 minutes thought has gone into it.

Hanksy strikes Again

These pieces are so in the spirit of Banksy I am begining to think maybe they know each other in some way…?
