My good friends at The Quiet Life have a new t-shirt for sale as a part of their Good Cause Project. The Good Cause Project is an ongoing series to raise money and awareness for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, something that’s personally important to them. For the first installment of the project, they held a t-shirt design contest and let people submit ideas. The winner was another Kitsune Noir friend Neil Doshi, who came up with the rad design you see above.
A really cool part of this project is that everything was donated to The Quiet Life, so they’re able to then give 100% of the proceeds directly to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. They’ll be posting the final amount in the beginning of the next season. The shirts come in Charcoal and Light Blue, and go for $25 or $30, depending on how fancy a t-shirt you want.
Please help out a really good cause and go buy a great looking t-shirt.
Earlier tonight I went to Swoon’s Drown Your Boats show at the New Image Art, and I was totally floored by how amazing it was. I knew who Swoon was in a vague way, but I wasn’t entirely familiar with her work, so it was amazing to see it in person.
Swoon works primarily in cut paper, which I’m pretty sure she wheat pastes to walls. It was astounding to see all the tiny pieces that make up her work. The pattern in the photo above is all tiny bits of hand pasted paper, there must have been hundreds of them all over the walls. Her paintings were also really amazing as well, I was really in love with all the colors that popped through. I also think that most of the show was put together with scraps of found things, like old plywood and cardboard.
I’ve never been a big Kanye fan, but I noticed he had this sneak peek of his new video Flashing Lights floating around, so I checked it out, and it was kinda lame. But I read that it wasn’t the real video, so I went looking for the real thing, and stumbled upon
Being a person who loves prints and comic books, it’s natural that I would like this Comic SFans poster by Alek Lukas. Alek is a RISD graduate and currently has a residency at Space 1026. There’s also a really great interview with him over on Fecal Face, which is where I came across him. The rest of his work doesn’t look anything like this, but as consolation, you can purchase the print from Cantab Publishing for $20.
Can anyone guess each of the character’s names on the poster? I’m having a problem with two of them, but I don’t want to say who just yet. A no-prize to the person who can figure them all out first!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hopefully everyone’s got someone or something to make them happy today. Even dogs and cats (and turtles!) need love, so don’t forget about them today.
I stole the image above from ESPO’s new book, Steve Powers – Studio Gangster, because I thought it was sweet in an off-kilter kinda way. Be sure to pick up said book, it’s absolutely phenomenal, and ESPO (aka Steve Powers) is a pretty witty guy, making it a fun read as well.
