Highlow is a Los Angeles jewelry maker who is hand sculpting some pretty fantastic things to wear. They’re dainty, pale items that are embellished with a little leather, metal hardware, and painted patterns. They have a natural feel to them and can even be seen as playful takes on necklace and bracelet forms.
Common Genus is a somewhat mysterious Los Angeles zine maker/artist. He–Jeff Kubasak–makes very homemade small books and publications that all focus on little drawings he makes. They’re often conceptual–he’s made the paper towel covered Shitty Zine, the beer case covered Micron Brews, for example–and are most definitely playful ways for him to share new work. The lastest issue of work is the December 2012/January 2013′s Charlie, a collection of images that are presented as if they were being mailed to Charles Manson in his Corcoran State Prison location.
TGIF AMIRITE???? It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday, they say. If anything, everybody’s working for the weekend. But what to do when the weekend comes! It’s always a tough situation. We have some ideas for you. But, in order to see them, you’ll have to CHECK THE RECAP!!
Ermie is an LA clothing brand from Jennifer Parry Dodge. The project started as a blog but eventually evolved into a collection of wearable items. Ermie’s style is very California cosmic with lots of faded indigos, sunset tones, and desert flower hues. Aside from their dresses, tees, and blankets, Ermie makes some pretty rad statement necklaces that look like these little art pieces you can wear around the neck. They all kind of look they’ve come from a lost California desert tribe obsessed with leathers and ceramics.
Get this: both artists Mel Kadel and Travis Millard have very recently teamed up with Eight Four Films to make these great little art videos that are both hysterical. The videos are quick little peerings into Mel and Travis’ world and, in a way, add a context you may miss from casually encountering their works. We’d love to see more videos like this from them!
