In 2013, I’ll be most hyped to see 42, the real life story of baseball legend Jackie Robinson. The film starring Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford and Alan Tudyk went through a grueling spring/summer production schedule, the majority of which took place outside in historic ballparks all over the country. Word on the street is Ebbets Field Flannels produced all of the period-perfect baseball caps and uniforms. The uniforms are so historically accurate that they have soft bills and were made out of vintage bolts of flannel from the 40′s and 50′s. It makes me wonder where they’re keeping the leftover props from the film. I’d love to score a cap or two. Perhaps I’ll get lucky on eBay one day. Meticulous attention to detail will make this film shine. Check out the official trailer after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Designed to mimic the natural biomechanics of the foot, the Nike Free Inneva Woven is defined by its premium crafted details: a hand-woven upper, dynamic lacing system and natural motion.
An intricate 360-degree hand-woven system interconnects laces with the nylon webbing to create a complex pattern that cradles the upper precisely to the foot. Taking inspiration from Nike running technologies, the natural motion midsole and outsole is flexible and comfortable.
The Nike woven process maximizes the “less is more” philosophy to minimize material waste to create a basket-like weave that serves both function and style.
First introduced in 2000, the original Nike Air Woven shoe flipped the convention of shoe making to create a new aesthetic that spawned a faithful fan contingent. This 2012 introduction of the Nike Free Inneva Woven brings the woven technique to a whole new level, with precision weave that features varied strand widths for support, flexibility and breathability. The Nike Free Inneva Woven merges craftsmanship and performance innovation to form a design that is as beautiful as its benefits.
The Nike Free Inneva Woven launches globally in limited quantities on Saturday, September 22. Check out the video after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

The San Antonio Spurs unveil a new alternate jersey that will be worn during the upcoming 2012-13 NBA season. The silver jerseys with black trim feature the Spurs iconic secondary logo prominently on the front. The alternate jerseys will debut at the home opener vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder on Nov. 1 and be worn during multiple home games throughout the season.
The new silver jersey attempts to go modern with the Spurs alternate logo awkwardly placed between the heart and the center of the chest, the number resting on the right breast and black and white vertical stripes along the side panel. The familiar Spurs primary logo is represented above the number on the back of the jersey and the accompanying shorts continue the black and white striped side panel and feature a “SA” monogram logo on the left leg.
I wish I could say that I love the bold decision to feature their secondary logo, but these designers did not fine tune the necessary and crucial placement of an already unbalanced logo. The size of the spur logo seems completely arbitrary and appears as if it was placed on the jersey via a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey-like activity. Nudge that logo a few centimeters to the left and increase it’s size and I’m with it. If you’re going to make bold moves, you have to pay attention to details!

The Chucktown homie, Righchus, drops his video for the single Stroker’s Row, employing the classic “light trails” effect to tell his story. Stroker’s Row appears on his new album, Black Cradles, which is the rappers most solid effort to date. I previewed a rough edit of the album 9 months ago, and am happy to hear where it’s come to. Download Black Cradles and check out the track, Been Gone, featuring our good friend, Stranger Day. It’s very cool to see 2 friends drop serious heat together!

I created this illustration for the Burnaway Fundraiser Event this Saturday the 8th from 7-11 at the Granite Room in Castleberry Hill. They’ve asked artists, writers, performers, and designers to explore the theme of Atlanta’s ongoing cycles and history of building, destruction, rebuilding, renewing, and expanding–from Sherman’s march to the sea to pre-Olympics urban renewal, from our short memories of the past to our long-running myths of the future–and what the city has lost and gained through these cycles.
I’ve always thought that Atlanta needed a giant monster. New York has King Kong and Tokyo has Godzilla and now Atlanta or in this case #ATLantis has the Kracken.

Once again, the Dragon Con parade wow’d the crowd with its hordes of loyal fans dressed up as their favorite sci-fi or fantasy characters as they marched thru downtown Atlanta. There you will see some of the most elaborate costumes like Zombies oozing with blood or 14 Ft tall demons on stilts. There are not just costumes but also replica cars and elaborate floats. My favorite had to be seeing Ecto 1 in person. The Back to the Future Delorean also brought back memories. Too bad Marty McFly wasn’t wearing the Nike MAGs. Last not but not least, Star Wars fans dressed up as Storm Troopers ended the parade with an imperial march down Peachtree Street.
