Owen Freeman’s illustrations are the kind of art that’s more pleasing to look at than the images that inspired them. He uses rich, saturated colors and digital painting over stark ink sketches create a surreal depiction of recognizable people and places. They’re the kind of art you end up staring at without being able to really say why. His subjects range from popular culture (Treme, Frank Sinatra, Eminem) to more abstract pieces inspired by famous short stories and fiction pieces. We’re guessing he was the kid who drew incredibly expressive portraits in the margins of his mathbook when we were all doodling simple geometric shapes. Circles, for instance. At the time we hated him for his talents, but we can live with it now considering the outcome.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
