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.



Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
