Although I’m out in Paris, far far away from longtime soulmate, poutine partner and swell-bud, Mike Perry; I’ve noticed that he’s been pressing, cutting, shaping and painting decks for what looks to be called Lignum Skateboards.
I remember awhile back we were writing to each other and he mentioned starting up a deck press. Well the work speaks for itself but I need to say something. Mike I’m so fucking proud of you and psyched that you’re doing this. There are so many people that never put action to their words and I hope this shit takes off, it looks beautiful and promising.
To update yourself with Lignum Skateboards and Perry’s daily decks, follow him on Instagram.
Now I know you’re angry, and you don’t put up with one of the most authoritative designers in the world steppin’ on your J’s by saying that the conceptual organic juice bar blog you started last month doesn’t tell a fucking story.
But I think Mr. Sagmeister is right.
Every son of a bitch out there today, and I include myself in this one, believes that he/she has the golden fucking touch and deserves the corner office with a fat monthly check to wipe their ass with.
The truth is you don’t work hard enough, so fuck you and take that for advice.
Never heard of Leta Sobierajski. Never heard of Odd Pears. I for one am happy to have finally met them on the internet.
Miss Sobierajski (I swear to gud you can’t pronounce that shit unless you be Slavic of sorts) is a killer Art Director with clearly and eye for candy and delighting the mind.
Odd Pears is a sock company pun, just wait for it, that sells you three socks instead of a pair, giving you the chance to turn shit up a bit on the daily with your foot condoms.
It’s only natural that these two odd-jobs hooked up and made babies. Beautiful babies.
Buy Odd Pears socks and see the rest of the campaign on Leta’s site.
POST EDIT P.S. Leta is total babe. No jokes. Check her about section.
You probably never realized it but BIC is your god damned lifeblood. Specifically the BIC Cristal Ball Point Pen (deserving of ALLCAPS and shit, BIC get’s so turnt up that they decided to reinvent the spelling of Crystal. They only fuck with the undisputed vowels).
They created this well put together and rather interesting web app/experiment/project jawn that connects whatever fucking device you have on hand to your computer, and once connected you can contribute to the universal typeface.
Shit’s already boasting 125 different countries and almost one and half million characters.
Go check out The Universal Typeface Experiment and contribute that chicken scratch you call handwriting.
I’m diggin’ so hard the art direction and consequently the final execution of Isle Skateboards’ new decks for this summer.
If you can’t fucking already tell, they grabbed three of their pros and asked them to gather items close to their heart, the sort of items that define who one is through day in and day out use, and of course sentimentality.
It’s a proper idea and if you haven’t heard about Isle yet, well, now you have.
Elisa Strozyk is a Berlin born artist and maker who creates these enticing wooden rugs & blankets.
I personally am head over heels for that blanket, you know that no woman could resist the inquiry to snuggle beneath it, immersed in the scent of what looks to be pine, body contact and sexual intentions.
