Legends Never Die

Mi Vida Boutique in NELA are hosting an event dedicated to Teen Angel, the artist behind Teen Angels magazine this Saturday. First published in 1981, the title is synonymous with Chicano style, art, and culture. As such, the publication has a tremendous following. Contributing artists include Richard Sanchez, Benjie Escobar, Spr Fkr, and of course, Chicano Wolfman. LA TACO have a nice preview.

Raoul Duke

Here’s an eye-catching new Hunter S. Thompson-character-inspired print from Los Angeles-based artist Mark Dean Veca. I got to interview Mark earlier this year so check that out if you’d like to learn more about him and his work. The signed & numbered 18″ x 24″ print is available in his online shop.

Remake

The very talented Jeff Hamada, of Booooooom fame (the most-visited art blog in the universe) has just released his first book! Remake features master works reimagined, largely by fans of Jeff’s great site. He knows how to genuinely engage his community in ways that are truly interactive and creative and this kind of project is the result of those efforts. If you’re interested in learning more about Jeff’s thinking, watch this Imprint talk with him from 2014 – it’s just great.

Big Bad Wolf

Hawaii-based art-driven kid’s brand Big Bad Wolf have continued to release amazing product over the last few months, including tee graphics by Australian tattoo artist Steen Jones, Korean artist So Youn Lee, Berlin-based Swiss typographer Rylsee, and they’ve added several new leggings styles too. Great news for my daughter, and I’m into all of it too.

Best / Worst

Here’s an interesting Bloomberg article about email sign-off etiquette, recently tweeted by Imprint speaker/design guru John Maeda. As a repeat offender of this mistake, I found it interesting. It’s all irrelevant if you’re one of those “email is dead!” types, anyway.
