Visuals, check. Audio, check. Damn, this shit is dope.
This looks like a beautiful movie. The crazy thing about it, is the WHOLE movie is painted. 12 oil paintings per second, all done by over 100 painters trained in the same style. Insanity. I hope the movie is good and worth the effort.
Dave Kinsey has been a big influence and art hero to me. I caught his work while still in college and I loved what he did then. The way his art has evolved is incredible and he’s one of the few dudes whose body of work that I’ve continually followed and still like. You can see some of his clear influence in my earlier paintings. He makes me mad and disappointed in my own work, for sure.
The Hundreds is a brand that I really like and respect. Aside from the HUGE contribution to art/design/streetwear, I really dig how Bobby, Ben, & co stick to their shit and keep doing what they wanna do. You can sense from their pieces, that they’re having a good time but are still hustling. I saw an interview with Bobby once, during the initial cut & sew peak, and he said something along the lines of “we’ll try cut & sew stuff but I’m just a tee dude. So we’re a tee brand.” Something about that resonated with me and I’ve just thought he was a cool dude ever since.
Anyway, the video is a cool behind-the-scenes piece on a Warhol inspired tee that Kinsey did.
I did an interview with the homies GM and Catfish from the Blind Box Podcast. I’m a terrible interviewee, you’ve been warned…
GM and Catfish are some cool cats and their podcast is pretty awesome. If you’re into hip hop, vinyl, toys, video games, and dope things all on that level, you’d dig this show. Check it out in the link below and tell me how terrible I am. Peace.
edit: I should probably point out that it’s Episode 27 of season 2. Thanks Jamie!
So as stated in the previous post, I dig the Simpsons. I also dig comic books and grew up in the worst/best era for them, which is the 90s. You know the era… Marvel, Image, Top Cow, Valient; aka big boobs, pouches, steroids, and guns. It was a good time but looking back I see how ridiculous some of it was.
Anyway, I’ve been having a bunch of fun mashing up some iconic villains (in my mind) from both the Marvel and Simpsons world. Here are some of them. I’ll probably roll with this series for a bit. I kinda wanna make some prints…
Sideshow Bob/Galactus. I think I’m gonna come back to this and add an annoying/gnatty Bart/Silver Surfer.
Mr. Burns/Dr. Doom
If you dont know, then you’ll soon discover that I have an obsession with donuts, hip hop, and cartoons. Lots of cartoons but The Simpsons is definitely one of my faves. Big fan of Run The Jewels, so this design was a no-brainer. No intentions while making it, I just made it to make it.
So I hit up El-P to see if he’d be interested in the graphic. I had absolutely no expectations but he responds!!! Tells me he digs the graphic, I cry and fanboy out, throw up, talk to their manager, and a few months later the gear is made. The fact that this collab with Run The Jewels even happened still makes my brain bleed. It was an honor to work with them.
