We will also have our new Summer ’13 collection there.
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.
We’re releasing our We Are The Process Summer 2012 line very soon and as a sneak peak, we’ve made this skate deck for the 3rd annual “Let The Good Times Roll” skate deck art show. It’s organized by our friends over at Black Sheep Skateshop in Charlotte. It will take place at Twenty-Two Art gallery from August 11-31.
Nike has teamed up with artist, Tom Sachs, in conjunction with his new show, SPACE PROGRAM: MARS, at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC. The show opens today and there will be a pop-up shop celebrating and selling this artisanal capsule collection in limited quantities.
Astronauts must be as fit as an elite athlete to even withstand the rigors of exiting the earth’s atmosphere. Their daily tasks require a substantial effort and endurance. Equally, their equipment must be up to the task of performing under the most unforgiving conditions.
The journey itself would end up inspiring the Tom Sachs: NIKECraft collection – The Mars Yard Shoe, the Trench, The Marsfly Jacket, and the Lightweight Tote. Nike design and Sachs applied materials that have never been used in sportswear, taken from automotive air bags, mainsails for boats and the space suit itself. Each piece is packed with functionality that would prove useful in the voyage through space. Zipper pulls that double as storage containers, paracord that can be fashioned as a tourniquet and embellishments like the periodic table of elements screened on the inside of a jacket – they all merge visual interest with purpose.

Charlotte’s Black Sheep Skate Shop has teamed up with Alien Workshop for a limited edition deck that will be released on Friday, December 2nd, 2011. The original artwork was created by Alien Workshop co-founder Mike Hill. To celebrate this release, Black Sheep has teamed up with CharlotteSkate for a photo retrospective of the skateboarding scene in Charlotte featuring over 20 years of local skateboard history from photographers, including Brian Tucker, Richie McCorkle, Jason Waters, and Mark Hansen.
The photo reception is from 6pm to 10pm, but the party lingers on the Camden Block at Dharma Lounge for Hella!! PRSNTS: Care Package charity to benefit Levin’s Children Hospital with DJ Mike the 2600 and BLNGxBDGT.
I love how most of Steven Dixey‘s paintings come paired with a uniquely-sourced, customized frame. This attention to detail sets his work apart from the others. On this particular piece, the frame originally housed a mirror in his grandmother’s house somewhere in South America. You can see Ouroboros in person along with the rest of Dixey’s new collection now at Beep Beep Gallery. The Dixey/Relkin show is up from now until November 26th.
It’s no secret that one of my favorite artists from Atlanta is Steven Dixey, so it brings me great pleasure to announce that he’ll be featured in an upcoming show at Beep Beep Gallery with Matt Relkin. Be sure to check out both of these artist websites and show your support at the opening on November 5th. I’ll be there!
PBR asked us to submit entries for their 2011 PBR Art & Design Shirt-Off contest and we’re asking you to vote! CrowdTogether, the website that’s hosting the contest currently has our entries, but the images are very small and don’t do our graphics justice, so we’ve decided to post them here in full detail.
The submission deadline keeps getting mysteriously pushed back… So much for hitting a deadline! I had my entry ready weeks ago and was waiting until the last minute so as to NOT show my cards. But you can now see what I did and 1-up me if you like. Sigh… I guess it’s really not that serious.
The good news is: if you’d like to submit your own entry, you still have time.
