From time to time, the crew at Standard will ask us to design flyers for their upcoming parties, events, and in-store appearances/performances. This week, we’re excited that the event involves hip-hop-blog-friendly rapper, Wale. He will be hanging out with us from 5 to 7pm before his ATL show later that evening. Dubbed, a “Listening Party”, the only thing I could imagine we’d be graced with hearing are tracks from his super-hyped and anticipated LP, Attention Deficit. The first single, Chillin’ featuring Lady Ga Ga, is poppy, nostalgic, and full of name-drops and product mentions. It’s definitely going to be a summer jam (whether you want it to be or not).

So before everyone out there starts to freak out over the name of this weeks photo friday take a second a listen to the story behind the images. My little dead dick is the photo essay from Patrick Tsai and Madi Ju. The story goes that the two meet over the internet and after a bit of correspondence via the interweb the two finally meet in person in Macau, China. From there they quit their jobs and both moved to China to pursue their love. In the process they took some amazing images of each other and their daily activities. The two unfortunatly broke up two years after getting together. The images here come mostly from the beginning of their relationship and are a very small portion of the whole body of work. To me its a great story and the images are beautiful and totally set the mood for the entire story. As far as the name goes, I have no idea where they got that from but the images are still awesome.

A couple weeks back, our friends from freshiam.net came by our studio with Dosa Kim to discuss the collaboration we did with him for the PROCESS line. It was a completely natural decision for us to reach out to one of our favorite ATL-based artists to contribute to our line. It’s definitely been a popular graphic among our customers. Make sure you snag yours in the PROCESS Online Boutique before they sell out.

Last Friday, we arrived in Charlotte about 3 hours before the Laced Up show at The Forum with our custom custom PROCESS Chukka boots in hand. Just enough time to drop them off with the show’s coordinators, grab a bite to eat, and get back to the show. Thanks a million to our Queen City friends for showing us around town, giving us the VIP treatment, and for the endless hospitality.
Shout outs: Radar for letting us crash at his pad and for the endless shenanigans (videos will surface on the internet), A.C., Camila with Blu Magazine, Myk with D.M.N., Shane, BLNGxBDGT, Bobby and Niche, Josh and Black Sheep, Ryan O’Malley for the sweet prints and the basement tour of the Davidson College archives, and everyone else we met or forgot to mention.

While I was surfing the internet this weekend I came across a pretty interesting new photography project called The 50 States Project. The states project, run by UK photographer and art photography curator Stuart Pilkington, is comprised of 50 photographers, one from every state and a series of assignments given to the photographers. They are given 2 months to work on the images in whatever way they see fit and then the results are posted on the website. The list of photographers working on the project is a pretty interesting group of people with some of my favorites like Jeremy and Claire Weiss and Brian Ulrich submitting images. Its a pretty good start and should be an awesome project to keep checking up on throughout the rest of the year. Here are some of my favorite images from the first project entitled people.

Part of the our crew will be heading up to Charlotte for tonight’s Laced Up sneaker event at The Forum. We were given this pair of Vans Chukka boots a few weeks back and the first thing we had to do was mask the soles with tape before we sprayed the canvas sneakers with the color we wanted. I don’t want to give away what our custom sneaker looks like, so I’ll leave you with a hint. It was inspired by the Bombera illustration Georgios made for the PROCESS line. If you’re in Charlotte, come out tonight for the big reveal. Everyone else, stay tuned because we’ll have photos from the show and more making-of shots very soon.

You may have seen this skate deck being passed around at the PROCESS launch Party at El Bar on Friday night. Our friend, Josh Tuminella created this custom skate deck as a gift to us. Josh and I had a conversation the other week at the IDSA portfolio review about this new process of designing skate decks that he was working on for his thesis. The more and more he told me about it, the more I became intrigued. So Josh decided to make a board for us in honor of the launch.
Well, you may look at it and say it’s just another laser cut skate deck that you see at art shows. But there is more that meets the eye. What’s so special about this deck is that when you grind on the board, it begins to reveal a hidden secret. Once you grind away the Process logo, it reveals the EC logo underneath.
We still haven’t grinded on the deck or attempted to reveal the EC logo because we love the deck the way it is and also because none of us have skated in years. If we do, you will be the first to know. Any experienced skaters want to help us out?
Josh, hit me up, I have some great ideas. Nokahoma skateboard?

Here are some selects from the PROCESS Launch Circuit events at El Bar that took place from 10pm to 3am last Friday. I’ve never seen so many people packed into the EL at once. It’s great to see the right people in our city have our back! THANK YOU ATL!
There are a ton of photos from the night that I wasn’t able to post. To see the full photoset, head over to John Ellis’ website here.
