Big Boi – Shine Blockas ft. Gucci Mane

October 13th, 2009 by Larry


Here’s a new track from Big Boi’s latest LP, Sir Lucious Leftfoot, which is supposedly coming out soon. This track brings back the all-too-familiar pace that sets him apart from the rest. Instant classic! Gotta love the East Point shout out at the end!

Thanks to Dax from for keeping us in the loop!

Uffie – Pop the Glock

October 12th, 2009 by Larry

Uffie has been one of my favorites for a very long time and I’m happy to see that her full-length album will finally drop in early 2010. She has such a spicy attitude! Peep her first official music video for the newly-re-recorded single, Pop the Glock. Language NSFW!

Photo Friday: Cowboys Stadium

October 9th, 2009 by Larry

I’m in TX this weekend and I decided to check out the monument-of-excess that Jerry Jones built for the ‘Boys. The field isn’t laid out right now because they are busy setting the stage up for the U2 concert on Monday night. As you can see, the highly-controversial scoreboard has been raised to 110 ft to set up the stage area for the U2 bros to run around.

What’s In It?

October 8th, 2009 by Larry


Soon, my friends…

Set It Off: Travis Ekmark

October 7th, 2009 by Larry

Travis Ekmark

My first car was a humble 1989 Mazda 626. My friends called it “The Crappy Travis.” Eventually, the nickname for the car became interchangeable as a nickname for me. 16-year-old me was not pleased.


Where are you from?
Atlanta, y’all. Please.

Who do you work for? 
Myself, Armchair, and People of Resource.

What are your Current Project(s)? 
At Armchair: writing, design, and production of content for the College Board take up most of my time these days. I have to say, our team is killing it lately.

For People of Resource, I’ve been doing some writing for DEX Studios and some internal strategy and design.

Just finished some work through Quo Vadis for lighting designer Christopher Moulder.

I’m designing a short publication for some of my favorite furniture designers, Rich Brilliant Willing. Also: doing a new tour poster for a very talented old friend, Sean Renner.

Figuring out systems, strategy, and social movements with Ted, Sri, and Melissa at Entry Level Big Thinkers. Trying to understand where young, upstart designers and thinkers fit into that space.

Gluzman and I are attempting to gain some footing as to where our collaborative relationship will go next as Mingle (eager to get more 3-D). Ted and I have begun a new art and design project, but it’s kinda hush hush for now. 

My wife and I keep a food blog of low-res iPhone photos of things we eat or make (and articles we like) called How to Eat Food.

Who would you love to work with?
I learn so much from all the people I’m working with now. Being in demanding, open, collaborative environments like Armchair and Resource is probably my favorite thing in the world. I’m psyched to go to work everyday and I feel pretty fortunate in that regard. Otherwise, I’d love to collaborate with some more outside-of-ATL friends: in particular, Foda Studio in Austin, Craig Berman in Chicago, and American Design Club in New York. Other dream teams: Charles and Ray Eames, Daniel Eatock, Naoto Fukasawa, OMA/AMO, Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam. 

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep? 
Real answer: Beat-up Adidas Sambas. Preferred future answer: Air Max 95s in the original colorway. Or the Jordans from around the same time that had the patent leather. Nike was on fire then.

What’s on your iPod right now?
A constantly evolving mixture of old favorites, things I read about on blogs, and things I hear Farbod play at Armchair. To be specific, I can’t get enough of: Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis, Animal Collective, Sigur Ros, Washed Out, Volcano Choir, Bibio, Eluvium, and The Field.

What’s your Favorite ATL food?
The standard Chick-fil-a Chicken Sandwich, Nuevo Laredo, or whatever the moment dictates on Buford Highway.

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?

What are your Pet Peeves?
Ugh, my own work habits: I love new projects and I love working hard, but I’m also incredibly easy to distract.

Shout outs?
My lady, Stacy, and my kids, Bennett and Vivian. Additionally: My brothers, Kevin and Kenny. Sibling-in-laws: Noelle, Trey, and Nick. Armchairs: Kevin, Stefan, Farbod, Nate, Aaron, Michelle, JTrav, Melissa, Ryan, Gluzman, Erica, Rebecca, Marta. Resourceful People: DVA, Sloan, SK. All Yall: Sean, Ted, Nik, Rick Julian, Chris, Shelton, Collin, Zak, Josh, James Nord, Dudes of Sid Mashburn, new friends, old friends I don’t see enough of, and, the internet.

Rehab – 1980 [Single Art]

October 6th, 2009 by Larry


Our friends, Rehab, are releasing the single, 1980, off of their acclaimed album, Graffiti the World. They asked EC to create artwork to go along with their radio-promo CD’s as well as art to accompany song downloads and other fun stuff.

The lyrics to the song remind me of a bro going to his high school reunion and hollering at shortys from way back. It just so happens that my 10-year reunion is coming up soon, so it made sense to draw Rehab’d “class ring”. I intended for the colors in the ring and background to dynamically change out to the school colors of the different regions they’d promote the song in. For example, Red/Black/White for Georgia/Athens area, and Orange/Blue/Green for Florida, and so forth. Somehow the management really liked the Varsity Gold and Maroon colorway I presented. I like it too, except it sort of reminds me of the worst NFL team ever ever ever (Redskins).
