Oh yeah. This is an entertaining site.
Kaws has been getting a lot of press lately, and rightly so. This go round, the New York Times Magazine gives a little love to the Jersey native.
AnimalNY has also noted that KAWS’ work is on the upcoming cover of Complex Magazine with Reas designing the flipside. This move is very innovative on the art directors tip, who must have forgotten about the other two times in the past year where this approach has been pulled off.
Continued amazement and thoughts of great things when I saw Bar Rafaeli on Egotastic.

I was just sent this link to style rookie, a fashion blog by a 12 year old. She seems witty, polished and really good. Here’s her about me….”Salutations! I’m a vertically challenged 12 year old that could fit inside your purse. I like to think I’m a mix of Little Lu Lu and Iggy Pop, with a bit of Snoop Doggy Dog. I spend my time wearing out crayons and watching Arthur, and taking a rest now and then to try out the latest Margiela DIY, which has most recently resulted in a tire around my neck. I take part in a rap group with a pirate, and we write about Japanese designers and furry vests. Pleasure to make your acquaintance.” I wish I could only write this good. Which makes me question is she that good?
See for yourself.
Our friends at design:related have posted this nice interview (both in web and podcast format) with Shepard Fairey. A lot better than most I have listened to or read. Once you’ve finished, have a look around and maybe sign up, as it is a great resource for designers and those who are inspired.
The Daily Hitler animates Addy in ways I have never imagined.
In a moment of internet go-getterness, I created a Facebook group for The World’s Best Ever. Join now and receive all of the benefits of social networking.
I’m bringing this feature back and what better way to start again than by searching the term ‘amputee’. Let the suggestions roll in.
Check out Adobe’s “flash on“. The site is a mash of flash and tv, videos online with interesting navigation. Nominated for this years flashforward navigation category. I wish my Time Warner worked this good.
Bringing you a little web history, Bert is Evil. The site has been around as long as I can remember. Enjoy.
To quote the about page,
“The Clustr is a grassroots mapping project where skaters can map their local skate spots. Each spot on the map features photos, videos, and bios of the spotters. The project is purely designed to celebrate local scenes, shops, skaters and their collective love of skating. Our vision is to eventually map skate spots and skate goodness all over the world.”
That’s right, Skate Goodness. And if you haven’t heard me say it before, I’ll say it again.
Pharrell ruined skateboarding.
Fecal Face just put up some remnants of their current group show. An available piece that caught my eye was the one above by Andrew Schoultz. 10″ x 10″, gouache on paper for a recession friendly $500. See it here

It’s always nice to see when normally far-reaching magazines take a step towards including more culture. This is the second time I can remember Time covering street art, the first was when US street art had more energy. Now it is all about London.

Todd James (Reas) created an animated page that I can watch for hours.
I stopped by Picture Box’s Departmental Store over the weekend to pick up the newly released catalogue for Mail Order Monsters. Curated by Kathy Grayson, the catalogue features an essay on the show (which is based around new interpretations of the human form) plus a portfolio of 20 prints featuring such artists as Taylor McKimens, Aurel Schmidt, Evan Gruzis, Fran Spiegel plus many more. If you cannot make it to the physical store, you can always buy it off of their website here.
Also, this Thursday you can celebrate the release of this catalogue at Deitch Studios in Long Island City at an event from 7 – 9pm
after the jump, a couple more pics
I have been digging Cheap Ass Food for a while. The site describes itself as a “site is for anyone who loves food and doesn’t give a shit about being proper.” Luckily, this encapsulates all of my people.
This is one of the dumbest slideshows I have ever seen. Leave it to Aol, way to go guys!
