Artist Jay Shells has combined his love of hip-hop and his love of sign-making into one amazing effort which has resulted in official-looking signs, sporting rap lyrics, popping up all over New York. Great idea and execution so I don’t mind being the 4 millionth website to post about this. More pictures at Whudat. There’s also a Rap Quotes Twitter account.
The talented Swiss-born, New York-based artist/illustrator Grotesk has just updated his website. It’s really nice and clean and showcases his amazing work well.
Ivan has been doing big things with his Skulls brand lately. I was traveling last weekend, and didn’t manage to post about his Spring Lookbook shoot with model Alysha Net (Parts 1 and 2), or his awesome pizza bagel-themed “Vinnie’s” Pack. The brand is about to turn two so Ivan is celebrating his own unique way, by releasing more impressive and eye-catching hats.
The talented designer, illustrator, and typographer Dan Cassaro (who I interviewed several years back) has recently updated his studio website, adding in tons of great work for a wide variety of clients like Carhartt, Marvel, Time Out NY, Land’s End, and Good Magazine. And don’t miss his State Mottos Project and the Highway Typeface. Amazing stuff. Via Design Work Life.
You might recall I reviewed the recent Sign Painters book by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon from Princeton Architectural Press last year. In it, the authors document the beautiful work of 20 amazing sign painters from around the country. Now there is a Sign Painters Movie to compliment the book. And like any good movie, it has a good trailer. Via The World’s Best Ever.
You could say that Tone Tank’s new custom action figure, FIST HOMBRE, is a real knucklehead, and that wouldn’t be inaccurate at all. It’s his first full resin figure, meaning he cast each piece himself. Limited to 100pcs, and available at the Scumlife Store. Put your fists up!
