New print release: This week marks the third print the Working Proof has released with artist Madame Lolina. It is pretty obvious that we think she is a unique talent with a flare for creating soft, meaningful works that lean into the world of fantasy and imagination. The print Crow Hat to benefit Kids In Need Foundation is no exception. I am in love with the black, white and grey pallet of this piece, contrasted by the figure’s soft pink lips. Everything in this image feels soft and harsh at the same time, a balance Madame Lolina seems to execute perfectly in every piece.
I often draw crows in my artwork, because I like the black color, smooth feathers, and strong beaks of crows. For this work, I thought that it would be interesting to express living animals as a part of fashion. If the crows change their minds and fly away, the hat will be also disappear.
A skate documentary? About a contest series? Contests have come a long way since the Savannah Slamma. The Motivation follows the top few skaters in Street League. I’m more interested in Cole’s interviews as the old dude up there than the younger kids. Hasn’t been that long since he was a young gun in In Bloom.
The Springblades are so crazy looking. I wonder what they feel like.
Some of the most awe inspiring and simultaneously terrifying cliffside roads and rickety bridges on this GoPro-filmed dirtbike trek through the Himalayas.
If the technology to make the Nike Free Flyknit exists, then it should be possible to make it look cooler. But I like the idea of a sock with a sole on it.
15% of the sale of this print goes to 826 National.
New print release:This week the Working Proof is teaming up with artist Chris Rubino to bring you his print So It Goes to benefit 826 National. I love the comfortable feel of this print, as if I’m sitting on my couch looking at my own overflowing bookcase. I also enjoyed reading more about artist Chris and his inspiration for this piece:
The print ”So It Goes” was initially conceived of and realized as a large scale painting, but has been reworked to live as a smaller print now. Thinking about creators I’ve admired, I made this tribute to the life and words of the great author, Kurt Vonnegut. The viewer can see a few of his famous titles as well as phrases written by the author.
