Perry’s Pressing & Painting

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.

Long time pote (that’s homie in French) Carlin Diaz has recently stocked the shelves of his portfolio with some tasty snacks.

I simply want to illustrate my admiration for you and your work brother. Let’s pati soon.

He’s been working on some illustrations, animations and titles sequences for the shred film J’aime les filles (I like girls) with Parisian filmmaker Guillaume Périmony. I can’t wait to see it. Take a gander at one of his early films Megamix, you’ll be happy you did.

Recently realized that I keep coming back to page through the work of New York based visual artist Tom Hancocks.

He creates mesmerizing imagery bringing new life to every day patterns, shapes and objects. It all feels really fundamental yet fresh.

Vallée duhamel

My words can’t do much good here. Vallée Duhamel is a team of three founded by two – today known as one of the most impressive, creative and fresh studios to work with.

They’re bat-shit-fucking brilliant. Why bat shit? Have you ever seen bat shit? Apparently there’s a form of really expensive and strong coffee made from bat shit. That’s not really why, but it helps.

Anyways Vallée Duhamel GO! GO!! GO!!! GO!!!!

Anna Kövecses is a Hungarian born designer/illustrator living in Cyprus with a style that brings us back to an Art Director’s Club atmosphere from the 1930′s.

I’m in love with her work and what’s best is that there’s a lot of it to look at.
