The big boys are at it again! Regular collaborators dust and David Monllor (f/k/a Disk) have gotten together once again to create a mammoth new mural in Augsburg, Germany. "Forgotten Soul II" is 70 meters long (230 feet), and it goes without saying that it's another banger. Mario Rombach, the video animation genius of the freshism family, took all the footage and banged out one bad-ass making-of video for it. Click the picture below to see the mural in all its glory, and then watch the embedded video below. If you're reading this in a feed, click here to watch the video on YouTube.
Ang just came across this nice interview from a couple years ago with our good friend Revise CMW. Give it a watch, as he talks about being an artist, graffiti, and art in Chicago. He's also rocking two of our pieces in the video. The first is our hoody called "The Watcher," designed by Joey Potts. The second is our "Cluttered" T-shirt, designed by Revise himself. Both of these will be available again once the freshism site is finally finished. Check the video below, or click here to watch it if you're reading this in a feed.
Our friend and fam, Shawn Smith of Shawnimals, has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for his new Resketch project. These are handmade notebooks from recycled materials, which is pretty freakin' awesome in and of itself. However, he's taking it a step further by adding "Creative Prompts" throughout each book, designed to ignite your creative fire. Not only that, but in addition to a regular Resketch notebook, you also get an artist-series one that features limited-edition covers from Revise CMW, Blütt, Shawnimal, Tara McPherson, and more. Help make this great project a reality and drop a pledge on it right here.
