I’m a big fan of Jonathan Gold – the Pulitzer Prize winning food critic for the LA Times. I’ve certainly enjoyed some amazing food thanks to his knack for discovering culinary gems worth visiting. The downside is of course, that his reviews can really blow spots up, which, while presumably a great thing for business owners, can be frustrating for longtime clientele. Still, sharing is caring, as they say. This award-winning documentary City of Gold is all about the talented writer and it’s in theaters now.
Thought you might like to know that we’ve just added these great Benny Gold Signature Sharpies to the Typo Shop because when do you not need a gold permanent marker, honestly? Free shipping on US orders.
A lot of talented artists are contributing work to this interesting-looking Lucha Libre-themed event going down in Los Angeles tonight. It’s part art show, part concert, part car show, and part Lucha Libre wrestling. Looks like tickets start at $25.
The Washingtonian just announce dates & locations for the upcoming POW! WOW! DC mural festival in late May. Oh, and is that a photo from last year’s POW! WOW! Long Beach in the article? Why, yes it is. That’s the homie Aaron De La Cruz working on his awesome Park[D] Plaza floor mural. Photo by the insanely talented Brandon Shigeta.
It’s another beautiful day here in Los Angeles so what’s more appropriate than these three enamel lapel pin styles from Lil Bullies Club, new in the Typo Shop? One a tribute to Tupac, another throwing up a W until the very end, and last but definitely not least, the new LBC collab with Benjie Escobar; an awesome ode to the wire wheel. All include free shipping on US orders.
I’m a huge fan of the Class Acts initiative by San Diego-based sunglasses brand Knockaround, whereby local school children get to design their own shades, and then a winning design is put into production. The best part is that proceeds go towards arts supplies for local schools. This year’s winning design is called After the Storm Premiums, and they are super fun.
