The Internet is just great part 1

As a over-consumer of the internet i have to say its one of my most enjoyable addictions, i have been online basically since about 96, i ran one of the first graffiti websites for my crew when people were on american online dial up.  Wow things have changed not only in the speed and content but the internet has changed how we live life, how we do our everyday thing.  Within about 10 years the world is compeletly different, like the industrial revolution it has just changed everything about everything and everyone.

So being the inquisitive cat that i am i went and hunted down some of the interviews with the people that have changed that life, here they are in certain order.

bush gets the boot

Holy fuck this is just hilarious, Bush was making his farewell / it was a good idea at the time speech in iraq and some dude got up and went payless on his ass.......props to bush for being ol as fuck and still having some cat like reflexes, guess that comes from ducking a lot of shoes in your time, watch video, then laugh, then be grateful hes getting the boot in january.

R.i.P Betty Page

Wow.....Ms Page finally bit it, at 85, after having pneumonia 3 timees.  She will be missed for the 50's pinup / bsdm icon she was, i am going to be doing some dedication pieces to her, being that iam a huge fan of her work as well as the stylized work of Vargas.  Interesting lil nugget she actually had a masters degree in education, who knew. she will be buried in westwood a couple of feet away from marylin monroe, creepy....

RIP Betty.

Prints for the printed show (first run sold out)

Hey all
The first run of the "from the inside out" for the printed show sold out, but luckly i had some extra time during Ms Phoenix's printing to make another 15, they are the "nighttime" version of the print and personally i like em way more, i spent more time since i wasnt under the gun adding some extras, so i'll be dropping em off at CREWEST tomorrow at like 2pm 12.13.08 if your interested in pickin one up, i think iam gonna print some more for the site, but who knows when the hell that will be.

thanks again to mr branded, 2 rabbits and the that whole car, it really was a great show and i am happy to be part of it

Kanvik Designer series (update)

Happy Thanksgiving yall, hope you had a good, glutenous, and festive day, it seems i cant go a minute nowadays without working on something, call it drive, call it work ethic, call getting old, but whatever it is, i am getting more work done than i ever have, got my groove back you might say.

At the girl Frans for the holiday, and while Ms Fran cooked up the culinary delights, i made her a lamp that i had been promising her.  Fran wanted something different than the standard can, so i decided to do a sparrow study theme for her can, worked out nice and fits other bird-esc pieces that adorn her home.  We might have something here

Lamp shade has options we'll see what happens today

Lost Collection 0001 | 1998-2008 REVIEW

First and foremost, If you missed the "LOST" show at the 33 1/3 over the weekend, kick yourself in the neck, it was amazing, Eye, Kopye and the Phantom of l.a came off as always, better than ever.

I caught up with Mr Eye on Sunday and he slid me a copy of the latest LOST mag, mag, no book, this thing is just beautiful. Eye has given me copies before and i couldn't really figure out why, but i have come to realize that hes just a super cool head that truely loves graff and design. So i figured i owe him a fair review of the book.

Now right when this thing hits your hand, your impressed, its got thick silk screened covers back and front and the design impression is gorgeous, eye is also a graphic designer and it shows heavy. The book is thick as fuck and as your flipping thru page after page of dope work by the likes of Krenz,
Patrick Martinez, Cab, and others you start to think to yourself "i need to be in the next one of these", its that badass you just want to be part of the movement.

Everyone i have shown this thing to in the few days that i have had it wants to buy it off me, but of course when you receive a gift there is no way in hell you can sell it, but luckily eye has a site where you can pick one up http://lost.seekingheaven.com/. i was literally held hostage getting my bagels today by the clerk that couldn't put it down.

Speaking of the site, if you haven't already been there, its like everything eye does, first class "press release", plenty of pics and what really impressed me and that ain't exactly an easy thing to do, he has a sample pdf with like 24 pages from the book..............dope.

But your gonna wanna get the real thing of course, its a dope book for the house, shit it even put a touch of class to my house, and my dirty coffee table where it temporarily living.

Other highlights are Luna's macro spray cans, Francine the best photographer i know, was instantly impressed and that says a lot.

So conclusion: Dope worth every cent

Pros: Eye, Cab, Luna, Krenz, Patrick Martinez, Quality design and publishing ascetics. limited 2k run

Cons: It took me a minute to figure out how to close it right, the ring binding is somewhat confusing, a little to much bombing for me.

Price : 30 USD with free shipping

Cosigned: YES


worlds smallest pico projector i think

yo check this thing out...........pretty bad ass for what it is
640 x 480 res, 1.3 kg, $250, don't know what the throw is or how big the image is, didnt say, but it looks pretty nice and small enough to throw in the backpack for those impromptu sessions, thats my new 5 dollar word btw, impromptu.....

seems like the only bad thing is that its composite video in, not the standard vga like on most projectors.........so i think you would need some kinda adaptor or something hmmmmmmmmm.



UPDATE: heres a list of other pico projectors if yall in the market.
