Remember those Lumadessa cards prints I found a few months ago? They just launched three new sets. More from the Flora Fauna Birds Edition, a Winter Edition, and my favorite– the Extinct Edition. Who loves Dodo Birds, Great Auk’s, Saber-Tooth Tigers and a Woolly Mammoth, like the one shown here? Me me me.
Damien Hirst and Supreme are back together again. I love this version of the artist skate deck collaboration at least twice as much as the last work they did together. I had one of those boards for a little bit but it never stuck in my collection.
These ones probably will, big fan of them.
The collection releases in-store in the US on November 19th and online on November 23rd. Japan will see a release on November 21st.
Our friend Russ Mills has a new batch of prints ready to release to the masses. Since his entire stock sold out in less than a day last time I made him promise to give us a heads up this time. And, he delivered. The prints will go on sale at exactly 2pm GST tomorrow (8am EST). The prints are still priced at £25 and they look amazing as ever. Have a peek at the prints here, then go back and buy tomorrow. Be quick, they never last long.
Hand painted Zeptonn original canvases. All 50x50cm. More soon!
Good day for these in NYC! A lovely rain boot design by our friend talented friend Zeptonn (who has a new site!)
Design for the Greenpeace summer campaign. The boot illustrates, in a positive way, the concept of protecting the tuna from overfishing by setting up sea-reserves. Available in a limited edition at festivals and online at the Greenpeace Fishmates Shop!
Dustin Cantrell‘s handmade Plasma Dunnys (as seen here on JS last February) sent a ripple through the art toy community–and beyond. First appearing on custoMONDAYs (a series of 20 emerging toy artists curated by yours truly), Dustin’s Dunny quickly attracted attention from Gizmodo to Kanye. Everybody wanted one, but only 4 existed, and they sold out fast. Enter Kidrobot, makers of the Dunny toy. They tapped Dustin to create 3 more Plasma Dunnys in metallic gold with wood bases. The Dunnys are currently on display in Kidrobot’s New York store and for sale at $600 each in the custom art section of Kidrobot’s website. This puts Dustin in the same category previously occupied by Tara McPherson’s sculptures. Congratulations to Dustin, and let this be an inspirational story for those who tweak their toys worldwide!
Update: They sold out in less than 24 hours. At $600 each. By an unknown/emerging artist. What recession?
