Icon Tee

Icon Tees 1

Super established Santa Monica Blvd art destination New Image Art has a new exciting something that takes them out of their gallery and into your homes: they’ve stepped into the fashion world in a very simple way. The gallery reamed up with the music brand and general creative group Opus Label to release Icon Tee, a brand that sees many of the popular New Image artists and places their work quite simply on apparel. We definitely see these becoming quite a thing, especially since the gallery is so close to that strip of Fairfax where art and street wear collide in such interesting ways.

Reimagining Classic Bicycle Playing Cards

Reimagining Classic Bicycle Playing Cards 1

When I think of Bicycle playing cards, I think of old men (or even dogs) sitting around a card table, casually tossing them to the center of the table through smokey air. They’re very reminiscent of an era that has passed us by. They’re classic and in their own way cool despite their having been replaced by sexier games like Cards Against Humanity. Art director and artist Jackson Robinson must either be a big card shark or bored by what Bicycle playing cards has become because he has redesigned the deck of cards with an appropriate eye for money. He’s calling it the Federal 52.
