Little Ink Print is an almost “cutesy” little ink and paper good studio from Los Angeles. They make little posters and prints geared toward the younger Angeleno but made with the older, affordable art loving Angeleno in mind. The work is the perfect little something to brighten up a nursery or young person’s room in a creative way.
If you have been to The Standard Hollywood since December, you may have noticed that it has totally been transformed into a California cosmic winter wonder zone courtesy of National Forest‘s Justin Krietemeyer and Steven Harrington. The show is their Auroraborealis and is totally great. To support the close of the show, we are teaming up with both The Standard and National Forest to throw a kick ass party on February 9. As you can see above from the flyer, you will not want to miss this.
Lay of the Land is a unique local studio who physicalize geography. They dont make little woodblocks or maps but instead these really interesting topographical representations of lands. They’re like little views of a state or country or physical mass as seen from space created with plush greens and solid blues. They’re little reminders of nature and geography.
Who doesn’t need fancy, well-made, wooden tabletop items? Well executed little objects make for great gifts and are as functional as they are fun. They’re those perfect little things you see in OK and Poketo and whatever store you stop into. You can’t help but pick one up every so often! The locals at Okum Made are carrying on this idea of simple, cute, excellent little products that you don’t need but you need. It’s their Made Collection, a new selection of simple and woody goods that are currently being Kickstarted.
A neighborhood isn’t planned: a neighborhood happens. It’s the result of like-minded individuals and businesses grouping together in the same area and growing a part of town into their perfect community. This process takes years and relies heavily on change as the catalyst for success. Los Angeles neighborhoods are constantly changing. With a huge population of creatives, makers in need of space, and new businesses looking to expand, forgotten and neglected parts of the city become neighborhoods coping with a status change: they are maturing and, in some cases, rematuring. Los Angeles–now–is a collection of neighborhoods happening at warp speed.
Venice, Highland Park, Hollywood, Silver Lake, Echo Park, the Arts District, Chinatown, various Fairfax Corridors: these are just a few of the Los Angeles neighborhoods that have and still are coming into their own. People are taking note of this and doing what they can to ensure that these neighborhoods succeed. People like Tyler Stonebreaker and Michael Smith are following the growth and changes in Los Angeles very closely because it is their job to know what neighborhoods are doing and how businesses new and old to Los Angeles can fit within our landscape.
