Shoe Is My Middle Name: Written Paintings and Painted Words
For anyone who has followed graffiti and street art over the past few decades, there is no question that Niels Shoe Meulman has been part of such learned history. From his early graff days in Amsterdam in the 1980s, to his international exhibition career, to his pioneering “Calligraffiti” movement, Muelman is, in spirit, a foundational figure demonstrating why these art forms have devotees around the world.April 04, 2017
Felix Colgrave's "Man Spaghetti"
Felix Colgrave makes cartoons that can hardly be described as ordinary. Reminiscent of the mad genius of drawn animators such as Invader Zim's Jhonen Vasquez, Colgrave's work is filled with fast-paced insanity, violence and absurdity that will make anyone laugh and squirm. "Man Spaghetti" is a perfect intro to Colgrave's work.March 15, 2017

The Carhartt WIP Archives
I still remember walking into the Carhartt WIP flagship store in London wearing a Jeremy Fish shirt in the early 2000s and finding a kinship with the staff. It was like we were part of a club and shared the same visual language. Through Carhartt WIP, I found the likes of Mode 2, Sozyone, and other European-graffiti artists who were hard to come by in the States. The European line for the venerable Michigan brand was, and continues to be, all about combining a world-view of music, art, and skate cultures with a classic workwear aesthetic.February 07, 2017
