MF Doom: Clarks, Working with ESPO, Rings... Man is Busy

Music // Saturday, January 25, 2014
MF Doom is all over the creative map at the moment, and not all of it has to do with music. First, he designed his own signature pair of Clarks Originals Wallabees. Then, he released his own custom rings designed by Han Cholo for Nature Sounds. And, after he had ESPO direct the music video for the JJ Doom track, "Bookhead," it looks like ESPO contributed some graphics to a limited edition Bookhead EP picture disc. We want everything we just mentioned...

Elle Muliarchyk has shot a few campaigns for fashion designers Rodarte, but this one in particular, a project called "Rodarte:Fly" caught our eye this morning as a stunning fashion shoot.

Today we're taking a look at Cina's more progressive work. The highly stylized mixed medium images appear to be collage but we're not 100% sure. Regardless of the medium we're enjoying how Cina is able combine aspects of design, photography, and painting to create these wonderful original works.

Drawings by Jessica Stewart

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 24, 2014
'The works under When You Escape are artist Jessica Stewart’s musings on dreams and those who wander lost in their imagined worlds. Dreams are vast, beautiful, consuming, unstable places built from secrets and fears, desires and damages. They are completely of our own individual constructions, but they are not safe.'
