BLAB!’s annual art show in support of the upcoming annual coffee-table book is coming up soon. The Blab! Show will be held at the Copro-Nason Gallery in Santa Monica on September 8th. They’ll be having an opening night party from 8-11PM, and it should be a good time.
The artists involved this time around, just to name a few, are Tim Biskup, Shag, Gary Baseman, Travis Lampe, Sergio Ruzzier, Gary Taxali, and a whole lot more. I’ll definitely be there, and I’ll probably take a bunch of pictures, so keep an eye out!
I had lunch with Garrett in Santa Monica yesterday, and on the way back we stopped by the Undefeated on La Brea. They didn’t really have anything exciting, but I did get to see the new Mike Mills billboard above the shop. It was pretty cool, I think I just love Mike Mills and whatever he does. This will be the first of three billboards he’ll have up.
National Forest, based out of LA and made up of Steven Harrington and Jason Kreitmeyer, are two awesome dues. I’m sure that most people under the age of 30 has probably seen their work. They’ve been designing the catalog for Urban Outfitters for a few years now, filling it with amazing patterns and colors. Honestly, I pick up the catalog these days just to see what they’re coming up with, it’s always inspiring.
The pictures above are the mural created for Rudy’s Barbershop in Santa Monica. Their style is eclectic, with imagery from every part of the last century. They recently did a mini-update of their site, so be sure to check out all their awesome t-shirt and skate deck designs.
