Looking forward to heading to The Agenda Show in Long Beach this morning. This apparel trade show has been going from strength to strength, and I’ve really been enjoying attending them. There’s always some good art happening, and pretty much half the people I know in SoCal converges on the Long Beach Convention Center for the next two days. Fun.
2012 was a pretty great year for me on several levels. Through Imprint I got to work pretty closely with Martin Wong of Giant Robot fame. He was recently invited to put together a show at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, and it’s going down this evening. The lineup features three of Martin’s favorite bands: Sandy Yang, Bongoloidz, and It’s Casual. $8. 21+. Should be good. More info at the link up top.
Light Regions is a collaboration between photographers Michael R Dueñas and Ryan Correll. Michael and I have been trying to find the time to do an interview for this site. In the meantime they’ve been staying busy, recently shooting a lookbook for a streetwear brand I’m not familiar with – Ikon by Domefits. The model is Left Brain from Odd Future. Here are a couple shots, hit the link to see the rest.
The world didn’t end, apparently, but my friends at Digital Gravel are having a big, big sale anyway. Perhaps the biggest ever. 60% off everything.
You might recall LA-based homegoods & pillow maker Andrew Sebastian launched a year or two back, partnering with LA-area creatives including Slick/Dissizit, Acrylick, Foreign Family, and several other talented designers/labels. Now they’re back with a brand new release, a collaboration with creative art director & graphic designer Cassia Dominguez. The graphics haave a nice geometric-pattern-meets-Buddhist/Eastern-motifs thing which I’m a fan of.
What’s the word? Hope you are having a fine Tuesday today. Here’s a link to an interview I just posted with Al Moran, co-founder of LA’s own OHWOW Gallery space, over on the Imprint Culture Lab blog. OHWOW encourages artistic innovation and it includes a gallery, publishing, special projects, and more, with locations in LA, NY, and Miami.
