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.
Imprint presents a special screening of The Deepest Depths Of The Burrow, during POW! WOW! Long Beach.

My old buddy Jeff Hamada runs one of the most-visited art blogs in the universe. He’s been doing it for years and only just opened an online store, launching with a limited edition T-shirt by Japanese illustrator Wakana Yamazaki. Pre-orders close on June 4th, and then it’s gone! Having intentionally worked with a lesser-known artist, he followed the announcement with an interview.
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.
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.
