A week or two back, I posted about the great Class Acts initiative from the good people at Knockaround sunglasses, outta San Diego. They’re raising money for school art education by repeating a successful formula. They asked a class of kids to design their very own sunglasses and chose an eye-catching Nacho Sunglasses design by 5th grader Vanessa K. Check out this video starring young Vanessa talking about her design and the project. [Watch Video]
Estevan Oriol, one of LA’s best-known and most well-respected photographers, recently took the time to interview the amazingly talented Angeleno artist Patrick Martinez for his blog. It’s a great way to get a little insight on Patrick, his history, his work, and more. Awesome to see such a good guy getting the exposure he deserves. I also interviewed Patrick a million years ago, you can check that here. [Watch Video]
I was really stoked to see that Hypebeast recently interviewed SoCal’s own Rob Myers, creative director and founder of SLVDR. And not just because I’ve been lucky enough to interview him twice myself – once for The Hundreds Chronicles (many years ago) and more recently for Imprint Culture Lab. SLVDR is a really great brand – definitely one of my favorites, anyway – and it’s great to see Rob and the SLVDR crew get some well-deserved recognition on such a popular platform.
