The homies over at Gre-Dee Arts [@GreDeeArts] have been working on something special as they prepare to release their first hand made metal pieces. This piece is especially dope as they've teamed up w/ Yes Julz [@YesJulz] who has become known as an international powerhouse marketing many of the brands that you've come to know and love. I had the opportunity to shoot some stock photos for the drop which will be coming soon. Check them out here!
Here's some really annoying and repetitive marketing to hold you guys over til everything is confirmed and the details drop. You can cop early admission currently on Shop.DavehasWingz.com! Just click one of the banners - I hope you like these social media billboards (not really)!
I've found one of the best ways to glean inspiration is to reach out to other people who create if you admire their work. I did just that back in January when I reached out to Jeremy Biggers [@BiggsUNKO] and Sam Lao [@SamWithTheHair] and told them I would be in Dallas. What turned into me procrastinating to transcribe the aforementioned interview was actually me saving the inspiration when I needed a boost the most. Check out the full interview by clicking the photo above or clicking HERE!
I don't know who bruh is to be honest but when I lived in Michigan I stayed all of 10 minutes from the Silverdome. One of my good friends to this day, Yohance Carter aka VibeSounds, lived almost across the street from it. I wasn't there for its glory days but my fondest memories are hearing about people going out to the annual fair that was held in its parking lot to fight in middle school - Savage right!? What's even more savage is to see what happens to a place after years of abandonment. Mother Nature starts to show her real power. Nevertheless, this video is ill and I wish we did something like this before we knocked down the Charlotte Coliseum for luxury condos years ago.
"By Dom Kennedy" - 06.02.2015 | It's an OpM Summer - The End
If you know me you know and understand the appreciation I have for the business mind of Dom and his camp over at OpM. Im excited he's getting ready to release another project and can't wait to hear the full project. I caught him on Big Boy's radio show premiering a new song but here is the full interview they did off air!
United Nation started off as a clothing based art project some homies and I did to bring some art and culture to our undergrad experience. Now we curate dope shxt on the fly every once in a while. This is no different - Download the "For My Friends & Sh*t" Mix - HERE and check us out on TUMBLR - might have some more merch coming soon. Keep it peeled, no lemon!
The difference between Jason Markk and those cats that try to shine your kicks at the mall is an appreciate for design, aesthetics, and culture. Study up - but then again, if you get it I shouldn't have to explain it.
