Inspiration Anyone?

As I dig deeper into designing I fid myself being inspired and NOT inspired by a lot of things. And during one of my many thrift shop expeditions I found this lil gem. I think to be good at what you do you have to watch what others do, ignore the rules and do you. I will def. be picking up many more.

Skipwaste by Oliver Bishop Young

New Designers 08: Goldsmiths University graduate Oliver Bishop-Young presented two projects about skips at New Designers in London earlier this month. The first is a proposal for a website where people upload information about the contents of skips so others can salvage items they need from them. The SkipWaste site would be searchable by items required or location and shows a photo of each skip plus its location on a map. Visit a demo version of the website here. The second project (shown here) involved converting empty skips into public spaces such as skate parks, swimming pools and gardens.

The following information is from Bishop-Young:

My work focuses on skips and looks at three main areas: exchange of waste materials, re-use of waste and making use of wasted spaces.

I'm just gonna say that NaS had a lot to do with this powerful discussion. He said he wanted to spark the conversation so we could get to a place where we are past the word.

The Roots Imeem Keys to the City

The Roots are the dopest. They are just the epitome of cool.. Def. hip hop but like I said before hip hop isn't a "specific" thing but The Roots are it. There is a space for all types of hip hop but The Philly Ambassadors of Hip Hop are definitely a premier component of the culture. Staying true to you makes you "hip hop" not doing what the masses is doing.

Writing since 2001 for some of the biggest names in the industry she has got me and is getting her chance to get some shine. Chris Brown's "Young Love", Timbaland's "The Way I Are", helping with Omarion's "Ice Box" and Usher's "Love In This Club Pt.2" and "Red Light" amongst others she's dope. CHECK HER OUT

Gym Class Heroes Album Cover

Friday, July 11, 2008


First let me introduce you to DeviantArt. The site is crazy. I've been on and off it for about three or four years now. But it's just a community online for artists. Every physical art form can be shared and experienced. And one of the many talented artists I was exposed was Hakim Satriyo or ClassyX from Jakarta, Indonesia. Dude is nice. The light, and feel is bananas. I would love to have him shoot our Fall Collection but we don't have it like that quite yet. So i'll have to just use the inspiration and ingenuity to get it done. Check out his blog or his Deviant page.

Jazmine Sullivan - Need You Bad Video / U-N-I - K.R.E.A.M.

At the age of 20, musical prodigy and accomplished singer/songwriter Jazmine Sullivan already has nine years worth of experience under her belt in the music industry. She’s anything but a typical singer and just one listen to her voice will make you understand why some of music’s most respected artists like Stevie Wonder, Fantasia, Omarion, Faith Evans, Monica and Missy Elliott have all praised the legend in the making.

Just a brief timeline of some of Sullivan’s musical accomplishments is enough to make any artist blush. At 11, she made her national television debut on Showtime at the Apollo, where she sang “Accept What God Allows.” While most artists recount always being absorbed with music while they were younger, Sullivan’s first introduction to music began at church. “I remember singing like around five or six in the choir,” she says before recalling a particular incident. “I was in the junior choir, but I was the first child admitted into the young adult choir. I was so proud of myself and with the support of my family and church, I began singing.” As Sullivan got older, she began polishing her craft as well gaining an appreciation for other artists, such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Kahn, Lauryn Hill, Brandy, Mary J. Blige and Donny Hathaway. REST of article

This video came out last year but I just got on to it so there may be others to just get on to it too. But the video is pretty dope. Really like the Spike references. Gotta listen to some more of the dudes. Inglewood to Illtown. (dont mind that inside thing)

Nate Frizzell

"Riverside motherf***er!" lol [Random Juice quote. But he is from Riverside....CA] Dude is nice. Stuff like this keeps me motivated even if has nothing to do with things I'm doing. It's just inspirational. But I def. want to do pick up my pencil and pad again to just brush up on my skills.

Nathan Frizzell is a Southern Californian through and through. Raised in Riverside, Nate took up residence in Los Angeles to pursue a professional art career, all the while the golden state’s influence can be seen reverberating through his work. Using both highly rendered images and softer graphic design elements, Frizzell weaves images we all can see ourselves being a
part of.

NaS - Untitled & Unreleased

I listened to the whole album and its dope. I really enjoy it. At first I was in support of the title (like why not?) but I wasn't sure how NaS would execute the concept. He delivers. When I get the opportunity to I will get a review to you. And I noticed that most of the album is already available so I wont post the rest. Go buy it. I have it and I'm gonna go buy it.
This isn't on the album but it's cool.

Diddy on Hancock / Original Cool Kids

Diddy never heard of the black Power Ranger?!... lol nah. that is true MOST of the superheros were white and the black ones were rarely seen, played insignificant roles or were just sidekicks. So I am elated to see Hancock. There is fictional black hero and real black heros for the youth as well (O'Bama, Will etc).. Looking forward to seeing the movie.

I was only trying to find something different to listen to while doing nothing and what better than to brush up on the history of what you love. So I tripped upon the gem, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince Rock The House (1987). Now I could only be late with this one since I wasn't heard for another two years. But I listened to it and it's crazy. Sounds like Mikey and Chuck only 20 years their senior. The rapper and DJ relationship was in full effect and they were having "fun". Gotta love the essence. It's still alive you just have to look past the bs.

Then I find this.
