Maybe you noticed that we covered Grotesk and the design agency he is part of, Doubleday & Cartwright, in the November 2013 print edition of Juxtapoz. We have also, in the past, shown you the former cover artist's awesome “6ft 6in” Lamp made in conjunction with Case Studyo. The past colorway was in the traditional Chicago Bulls red/black, and today, Case Studyo and Grotesk release the new "Black & Royal Blue edition" for collectors of all things Michael Jordan and the Nike Air Jordan 1.
