Looking-Good-Mirror

We don’t know why, but everyone looks at least twice as cool when they’re wearing sunglasses. Yes, there are a few exceptions – really old guys with Oakleys, stuck-up girls with gigantic shades, Guy Fieri…

Comic-Collage-Art-1

Growing up, we devoured comic books. Some made their way into plastic sleeves because we stupidly thought they’d make us rich, and some got torn to shreds as we flipped through the pages at a…

The-Every-Occasion-Card-1

As a man, there’s no location you’ll feel more out of place than a greeting card store. Okay, perhaps the feminine product aisle at your local supermarket could give it a run for its money,…

Shepard-Fairey-x-The-Simpsons-Dope-Poster-1

We’ve loved Shepard Fairey’s work for quite a long time. We’ve also had a soft spot for Duff Beer, Ralph Wiggum’s Valentine’s Day cards and all things Simpsons for probably a bit longer. In celebration…

Hi-Fi-Posters-1

Our audio equipment these days looks like somebody took the gun from “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids” to it. Having a killer setup back in the day meant decking a room out with gear that…

Concrete-Wallpaper-1

If you want to give your home a rustic, worn-in feel, you could take a sledgehammer to some of the walls or you could go a much smarter, and more stylish route, and put up…

mosaic-photo-book

With so many filters and simple manipulations, we’ve all become world class photographers. As such, it’s only fitting that our work of high art got the appropriate treatment. Mosaic is a new app that lets…

The-Walking-Dead-Minimalist-Prints-1

The return of The Walking Dead this past weekend was accompanied by record setting ratings. Whether you’re part of the crowd that’s been there since the beginning, or you just joined in on the adventures…

Grime-Writer-1

Have you ever considered that the greatest graffiti artist that ever lived is out there and he/she is terrified of breaking the law? What if said artist is you and you want to keep your…

Moleskine-Photo-Books-1

Explaining to you what a Moleskine is would be pointless. Everyone knows what Moleskine does best, and we’re willing to bet that 95% of you reading this owned one at some point. Take everything you…

Even if you buy some small Bose unit or a sleek audio set up, your speaker system is still going to stand out as a speaker system. With aFrame acoustic artwork your music blasters can…

The-Films-of-William-James-Murray-1

If you’re trying to figure out who William James Murray is, here’s a clue, he’s better known by his real full name, William Effing Murray. To celebrate the iconic actor turned party crasher’s best work,…

Vintage-Headphone-Hangers-1

While doing some research for The History of Headphones, we gained a new appreciation for old school cans. We kicked around the idea of buying a pair of classic Koss Pros, but ultimately decided our…

Epic-Frequency-1

We featured VoicePrints a bit ago on Cool Material because we really liked the idea of turning our thoughts into art. The only thing was, we struggled with what super important message we wanted to…

Printstant-Replays-1

Ahh, remember the days before replacement refs? When fantastic finishes weren’t determined by a nervous guy who used to work at Foot Locker? To recall some of those iconic football plays that are ingrained in any…

Literature-Inspired-Fine-Art-Prints-1

Nobody likes the guy who says the book was better. Even if it’s true, it sounds snobbish and elitist. This isn’t to say we don’t appreciate a good read, but we don’t throw it in people’s…

Seinfood-Prints-1

On the list of things we love in life, Seinfeld and food are right up there with Kate Upton, good beer and Kickstarter pen projects. To show our love of those two, we’re ready to…
