Steve Jobs Patents

Steve Jobs Patents

Even if you don't have a device branded by the fantastic digital fruit, it's hard to argue that Steve Jobs didn't change the world for the better with his time in our little slice of the galaxy. He touched a lot of lives in a lot of ways with his special brand of technical ar...

The All American Collection Combines PF Flyers Heritage With New Balance Technology

The All American Collection Combines PF Flyers Heritage With New Balance Technology

Old school meets new school with the All American collection from PF Flyers. The sneakers are modeled after a best-seller from the ’60s and boast vintage details to highlight that fact. But don’t confuse these for the simple kicks your old man probably tossed on his feet back in the day, because the All American collection is outfitted with New Balance Fresh Foam insoles, which were crafted using data to provide ultra-supportive cushioning and softness. Lace up a pair and you’ll feel like playing stickball under some Fourth of July fireworks and following it up with some apple pie.

Who . . . Is . . . Hanksy?

Who . . . Is . . . Hanksy?

Call us suckers but we love a good mystery (as long as it doesn't involve Nicholas Cage). We try to solve every crime on Law & Order, we look for life's meaning at the bottom of every bottle of booze (wow, that sounded depressing) and we've diligently scanned "Exit Thr...

Post-It Wars

Post-It Wars

Post-It notes are one of the greatest accidents in history. You can use them to remember everything from conference call notes to birthdays to what page you left off on in your book without damaging personal, or business property. Clever Parisians are taking the unassuming no...

Rhone Makes Elevated Activewear for Men

Rhone Makes Elevated Activewear for Men

Fellas, we’ve been left behind in the activewear game for too long. For years, activewear for men simple meant loose-fitting clothing that’s so unattractive you won’t mind sweat stains and rips and tears at the seams. Rhone has set out to change that. Rhone is the collective vision of a small group of weekday warriors. They leverage advanced materials and technology to craft activewear that moves with you, stands up to frequent gym sessions and morning runs, and looks good throughout it all. That means you can break a sweat without looking like you’re couching it on a lazy Sunday. Plus, since they refuse to sacrifice performance for profit, you’re getting next-level activewear without making your wallet feel like it just ran a 10K…

Typography Portraits

Typography Portraits

Using typography to create cool, wall mountable images of other things is really nothing new in the world of design. Time and time again we've seen talented artists throw the adage "a picture is worth 1,000 words" out the window in favor of using the same words to create pict...

Derek Gores Collages

Derek Gores Collages

Sometimes, the most deliberate of things come together based purely on their randomness. The collages of Derek Gores are a perfect example. With subject matters ranging from femme fatales to 5.0L cammer engines, Gores isn't afraid to tote the line between dream and reality. A...

Art That's Off the Wall

Art That's Off the Wall

The idea that art can only be created using brushes, paints and canvases is as ridiculous as a world without the Internet. We're not quite sure about how we feel about a wall-mounted urinal being considered art, but there are plenty of artists making ridiculously awesome work...

Desserts for Dudes: Fried Chicken Cookies

Desserts for Dudes: Fried Chicken Cookies

Right now, we're in the middle of a dude renaissance. Dudes know how to sew - even if it's only to fix a button. They know how to cook - even if it's only to impress a lady. Some might even know how to bake - clam style. In this world of think for yourself-ers and DIYers, isn...

Video Game Classics

Video Game Classics

Regardless of where you stand on the whole "video games as art" debate (for the record, we're for it), they involve some aspect of art - even if it's only the cover. If movie posters (which usually end up becoming some aspect of the DVD or VHS jacket) are considered art, why ...

This post is brought to you by Saab. At Saab, we believe in independent thinking. It’s in everything we do. Learn more here. Graffiti has existed for decades as simple gang tags on street corners, illegible writing on subway cars, or bathroom stall words of wisdom on...

The Tapestries of Erin M. Riley

The Tapestries of Erin M. Riley

Back before everyone knew it wasn't such a good idea to post debaucherous pictures on Facebook, you couldn't even log on at work without seeing pictures of bong rips and girl-on-girl action. We've all grown out of the phase where we thought any of that was a good idea (postin...

Diederick Kraaijeveld’s Reclaimed Relief Art

Diederick Kraaijeveld’s Reclaimed Relief Art

Walkabouts frequently lead to found treasures. Images of native populations (we're talking girls obviously), tiny trinkets and fun souvenirs are commonplace, but nothing like what Diederick Kraaijeveld does with what he finds in Holland. Using reclaimed, genuine wood that he ...

Miniature Urban Sculptures

Miniature Urban Sculptures

Miniature versions of things will always have a place in our heart. It doesn't matter if it's Estes Rockets or Revell cars or Micro Machines or even Lego, we've been playing with miniature models for as long as we can remember. Alan Wolfson has turned what we thought was only...

Superheroes Throughout History

Superheroes Throughout History

Ever wonder how history would have been affected if it was a little more super? What if Batman was at Greenham Airfield on June 5, 1944 giving the orders to paratroopers about to descend on Europe? Is Darth Vader secretly the one responsible for the Viet Cong deaths on the pe...
