Big Bad Wolf

Hawaii-based art-driven kid’s brand Big Bad Wolf have continued to release amazing product over the last few months, including tee graphics by Australian tattoo artist Steen Jones, Korean artist So Youn Lee, Berlin-based Swiss typographer Rylsee, and they’ve added several new leggings styles too. Great news for my daughter, and I’m into all of it too.

Best / Worst

Here’s an interesting Bloomberg article about email sign-off etiquette, recently tweeted by Imprint speaker/design guru John Maeda. As a repeat offender of this mistake, I found it interesting. It’s all irrelevant if you’re one of those “email is dead!” types, anyway.

Tropicoso

Tropicoso is the title track off the first full-length LP from LA-based Afro/Latin funk group Jungle Fire. They were formed by talented studio musicians as a one-time thing, but the reception was so good they decided to continue their awesome blend of sounds. Been listening to this LP a lot lately.

Surf

If you’re a fan of talented Chigaco emcee Chance the Rapper you’ve probably been looking forward to this Surf mixtape from his new project Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment. Well, it’s out now. I got mines via Datpiff.

CicLA-dena

This Sunday, the “largest car-free open streets event in America” (aka CicLAvia) is going to Pasadena for the very first time. It’s set for 9am-4pm, May 31st. Check the map below and there’s more info here. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a CicLAvia event, I heard they’re getting really crowded, but I definitely believe in what they stand for – having a car-free or car-lite day.
