Secret Headquarters in Silverlake is having an awesome looking art show tomorrow night featuring the awesome artwork of Ryan Heshka. All of the pieces in the show look like they were inspired by old, pulp and science fiction comics from the 50′s, with all sorts of weird yetis and aliens and ghosts.
The show is from 8 to 10pm and there will be drinks, as always.
Mimobots has released a new artists series of their cute USB drives, their first collaboration with the amazing Friends With You! In the past I’ve never really been sold on the Mimobots. Sure they’re cute, but personally I don’t need to carry around a tiny action figure friend to keep my files on, that’s what iPods are for.
But I’ve been in love with Friends With You forever it feels like, so I’d be much more inclined to buy one. As of now, they only have two models out, which aren’t the ones I’d want. The ones I want are the Malfies you see above, which don’t come out until March. Sad times.
Driving around LA a few days ago I saw the awesome new advertisements for The Spiderwick Chronicles, a movie I don’t really care to see. But the ad above certainly caught my eye with the gruesome and fascinating specimens floating in strange liquids. It was also cool that I could go on their website and download the image as a wallpaper background. Someone in their marketing department realized that kids are quite computer savvy and would really enjoy having something so gross to look at everyday.
The movie comes out on February 14th, so you can take your Valentine sweetheart to see it!
As of lately I’ve been slightly annoyed with Facebook. I’m getting more and more annoying requests for dumb things like “hot men” and “cupcakes”, but then I came across the work of Jon Mutch, a random reader of the blog whom I friended a while ago. Jon graduated from the University of Winnipeg last year with a degree in art history and plans on going into graphic design.
The posters above were created for a friend who hosts a weekly event called Rock Paper Scissors. I know that if I saw one of these posters up I would totally take a second look. Jon was inspired by the work of Scott Hansen, but he’s definitely taken his own take on the retro style. And if you’re ever in Winnipeg, be sure to check out The Pyramid Cabaret!
Two years ago Nike SB released the Tiffany Dunk SB, the creation of Nickavelli over at Diamond Supply Co. The shoe featured the signature Tiffany blue, and crocodile skin, making it one of the hottest shoes of that year.
Now Nike is releasing a variation on the original and calling ti a “tribute”. Thankfully it’s pretty sick, coming in all black leather, a black corc skin swoosh, and a white sole with a black tip. On the inside is a wood grain patter which looks teal, but I think it would have been better to use the Tiffany blue again. Either way it’s a pretty damn slick shoe. This is totally my style, sharp looking, but low key.
This puppy should be out sometime in February, so keep an eye out.
