Jasper Wong x Microsoft

Super popular & well-respected art blog Supersonic Art have some incredible photos of the Jasper Wong mural in Long Beach, California from last year, created using the Microsoft Surface tablet. It was really fun to be on hand for this – another great addition to the LB public art landscape.

Deep Cover

This article from Fastcodesign nicely points out that whoever said album cover design is dead was totally wrong. I hope it wasn’t me who said that. Check out the “Best Art Vinyl 2015” winners and nominees out over at the Art Vinyl website for more.

As The World Dies

As The World Dies is the name of a new limited time-release from talented artist Ian Kuali’i and art online retailer 1xRun. The exhibition includes two editions of 17″ x 17″ pigment prints, as well as some of Ian’s amazing one-of-a-kind original vintage spray cans with his signature hand-cut stencils. I’m a huge fan of Ian’s work and I’m kicking myself for not having posted this earlier, but hey, there’s still over a week left on the countdown to the end of the limited time run.

Booooooom TV

Jeff Hamada who helms the worlds most-visited art website, has just launched a giant new project, Booooooom TV. The new platform will feature Jeff’s favorite animations, short films, documentaries, music videos, and interviews. He will also be unveiling new work by directors, and he’ll also be launching original videos too. Should be awesome. Another nail in the old school cable network coffin!

Speedy’s Liquor

Some well-known LA-based creative talents joined forces recently to launch Speedy’s Liquor, a new player in the super fun pin & patch accessory space. They showed at Agenda Long Beach last week and you can check them out online too. The brand is inspired by the neighborhood corner stores the brand’s founders visited during childhood growing up around LA.
