No Wind is Favorable

The talented homie Jeff Gress has just launched a typography-driven timed print with the good people at 1xRun today. Based in Hawaii, Jeff is a super talented typographer who does all sorts of amazing custom lettering. I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside Jeff during several POW! WOW! mural festivals and nobody works harder than he does.


TSOTW: Inca-Tú

T-Shirt of the Week award goes to this new joint from the creative homie Reef Kills which is freshly available over at Hutch LA. Reef deftly illustrates the face of rapper Tupac Shakur, in an Inca-inspired style (based on Tupac’s name being a reference to a famous Incan ruler’s name).
