Wearable Graphics from Red Brick

Red Brick North scarves

I was at an art show in an old bookstore in York, England, when I spied a girl wearing a curious scarf. When I stopped to ask her what the graphic was, she unfurled it to reveal the most lively and detailed illustration of Coney Island. Rarely have I come across an item of clothing that I’d frame, but this was frame-worthy. Later that evening, I met the maker of the scarf, Karen Mabon, who runs her own Yorkshire-based scarf and accessories line, Red Brick.

“Beach Blanket Biggie”, A Beach Boys/Notorious B.I.G. Mashup by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

These days I spend a lot of time randomly crawling around Soundcloud looking for interesting music. It’s pretty amazing what you can find on there. I’ll think up an artist that I really enjoy or a record label I’m a fan of, do a quick search and then BAM… something rad pops up. That was the case when I came across Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., the indie band from Detroit most notably famous for their track “If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On The Dancefloor)”.

The duo has miraculously revived the concept of the mashup (which rightfully died a few years back) combining The Beach Boys Notorious B.I.G. for a track titled “Beach Blanket Biggie”. The track manages to combine the 1966 classic “I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times” with Biggie’s “Hypnotize”, which have then been mixed up with an 8-bit, underwater Mario Bros. level sort of vibe to it. That hopefully makes more sense once you hear the track. Pretty damn catchy, prepare to listen to this on repeat.

Ruslan Khasanov Mixes Ink and Oil To Create A Kaleidoscopic Video

Russian designer/typographer Ruslan Khasanov (who we’ve featured on the site a couple of times for his typography) has crafted a rather beautiful video titled Pacific Light. Ruslan mixed together colored ink, oil, and soap, producing a wonderfully colorful short video that defies standard descriptions. Sit back and enjoy 2 minutes of trippy, technicolor footage.

“Nightingale,” a New Song by Grey Reverend

LD Brown has been around for a minute. The Brooklyn acoustic guitarist/songwriter drew attention with his affiliation with the Cinematic Orchestra and his fantastic vocal work on Bonobo’s “First Fires.” Known for his mellow, eccentric, inspired picking, he opened the former and put out his first record, Of the Days, in 2011.

Recording under the name Grey Reverend, his stripped down style simmers in our summer of sangria and spf30. With a new record due out September 2nd and an EP coming out July 29th, it’s a great time for a single. And maybe a song that hits the summer time from a different angle.

I’m really impressed by the photography of Ákos Major. Inspired by the likes of Michael Kenna, Elger Esser and Josef Hoflehner, the Hungarian photographer has a real talent for capturing stillness and tranquility in urban landscapes. His latest series of images – ‘Stay’ – were taken earlier this year in Hungary, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

I’m all about playing with your food, specifically when its for photographic purposes. Los Angeles-based food and lifestyle photographer Andrea Bricco has a family history steeped in food. And though her work is more serious (and seriously beautiful) in nature, her food styling projects are another story. With a client list that includes everyone from GQ and Los Angeles magazine to chef conglomerates like Wolfgang Puck, her unusual work stands out in the saturated field of lifestyle photography.
