ASIAN WOMEN BY A WHITE GUY

you decide...

TOKIDOKI GM08

Simone Legno a.k.a. TOKIDOKI is a great illustrator, character designer and businessman.
His rise to prominence was due to his collaboration with "LE SPORTSAC", a brand which focuses on messenger bag products and pouches.

the bags were so hot, the black market found numerous ways of producing knock-offs and sold them at extremely low low looooowww prices.

Mr. Legno and his characters are now one of the biggest names in the streetwear/fashion industry wherein his street cred has found its way to bigger collaborations like NEW ERA, ONITSUKA TIGER (asics family tree), and most recently, SKULLCANDY.

the dude was decked out with all his products from his fitted to his damn socks, jewelry, even his headphones.

on top of all that success, he was down enough for a nobody like me to come up to his face and say "Yo, you's a genius, can we take a quick pic?"

hesitantly, he gave me a nod.
after that, the swarm of fanboys and fangirls alike smelled blood and went for the kill.

Sorry Simone.XP


VISUAL DESIGN CONFERENCE


The south is getting excited to be part of the phenomenon called "VISUAL", a design conference targeted towards the lower half of the country.

With speakers that specialize from web to contemporary apparel design, who wouldn't want to be a part of it?

answer? petty USC-TC fine arts noobs who think they know shit. hypocrites i tell you, hypocrites.
they say the tix are too expensive when they own a mac, any ipod model, cars, and DSLR necklaces. yep, real DSLRs used as necklaces just so they can be baptized as "artists".

anyway, the design conference happens on Nov. 28, 2009 @ SM cinema 1.

SPIZIKE F'ed UP COLORWAY


To those who dont know, and to those who dont give a damn, im a big sneakerhead.

BIG sneakerhead.

the new jordan spizike colorway is a perfect match for winter-mode gear, with its greys mostly of suede material, are paired with a nice cherry hue. not to mention the tube laces that fit in well with the recent trekking/mountaineering/hiking trend that's actually a big hit in japan.
