beyond print...beyond craft: the art fabric

I'm not sure what is more beautiful, the condition that this book is in, or the book itself. I walked into the design room yesterday and this was sitting on Annika's desk...OK, run to Alibris now.
And what a fine vintage indeed...1973

Never Mind The Bollocks Here's McQueen

It's kinda bitchin' that the future Queen rocked McQueen.
I'm just sayin'...

Never Ever Bookmark...

I personally discover and then lose blogs continuously...otherwise this shit get's boring. If one is "that good", I surely find it again. But strangely, I think I might have to pick up some mags again. I dunno, I think I'm slacking...Kanye's references stumped me and I didn't know that pop colors were cool again...yikes!

Sunset Circles, This Friday night at POPgallery... 7pm to 10pm

Early last year, I had the pleasure of creatively connecting with an amazing community of artists from the Outer Sunset neighborhood in San Francisco. Since then, we have been making continuous trips up north to collaborate with Serena-Mitnik Miller on various studio-related projects. Serena and her husband, Mason St Peter, are the proprietors of the General Store on Judah Street, which besides being one of my favorite retail stores, is also the heart and soul of this incredible community. And it's worth mentioning that I went to kindergarten with Kyle Field (yes, kindergarten…my longest standing friendship), and over the last thirty-plus years Kyle has been the single most influential person on my own creative process through his amazing talent as an artist, musician, and most-importantly, as a friend. I often post Serena and Kyle happenings on the site...but here's your chance to come and see their magic along with the talents of their amazing community of peers...

Opening reception: Friday April 22, 2011, 7–10pm

SUNSET CIRCLES is a collection of work from a circle of artists contributing to or inspired by the Sunset, an artistic community nestled in the dunes of San Francisco. The artists include:
• Jeff Canham
• Julie Cloutier
• Kyle Field
• Katie Goldman Macdonald
• Mason St Peter
• Serena Mitnik-Miller
• Jay Nelson
• Jesse Schlesinger
• Orion Shepherd
• David Wilson

A circle of artists gather in a neighborhood pillared by the sea, they gather ideas and draw inspiration from the wild and unrefined scenery, and the community they’ve cultivated amongst it. The underlying theme of the work celebrates a circle emcompassing the minimal, natural, handmade and organic forms, materials and resourcefulness that the artists, through simple, bold, and intricate expression, brandish in their reverence for their pelagic community.

Spend some time here...just not summer time.

"Lots of Venice California People" by way of Helen in London, by way of The Selvedge Yard, by way of some "rad guy like Chad"...around the world to see pictures of home. The soul still exists, but the curls are set and the vintage is styled. Oh, and the graffiti traded in for Intelligentsia...

Relax with a old one...

Been back from Mex for a few days, but the catch-up has been brutal. So much inspiration to post. It's a long list, but I'll dive in over the next few days. For now, relax with some Pacific Lager Beer (not so fresh I'm afraid)...
