It’s not really a baby Jesus. Maybe all the catholic schooling makes me thing any brown-haired, white robe figure is Jesus. Anyway these little vinyl figures are from Momiji and designed by Camila De Gregorio. Camila hails from Chile, where she works as a graphic designer and models.

Taki 183 returns!

taki-183-print

On July 21st, 1971 the headline ‘Taki 183′ Spawns Pen Pals appeared in the NY Times.  On May 13th, 2009, Taki 183 got a website.  The first two lines of the Times article read as such “Taki is a Manhattan teenager who writes his name and his street number everywhere he goes. He says it is something he just has to do.”  I didn’t want to pay for the rest of the article but, you can (or if you’re smart, download it from his site or peep it after the jump.)  I am more concerned with spending my money on one of the spraypainted prints that are for sale on his website.  Yes, that tag above is original, and spraypainted by Taki himself.  True graffiti history.
