Word has come of another ‘Posthumous’ J Dilla CD with a date of June 2nd for set release. Titled ‘Jay Stay Paid’ the album is supposedly containing 25 unreleased tracks. Mixed and arranged by Pete Rock, other familiar faces on this album will be Black Thought, of The Roots and MF Doom. A few months back 11 unreleased tracks were released with the working title ‘Pay Jay’ and were apparently tracks that were given to MCA for release before Jay’s untimely death. Somehow I think these two are related, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

DOOM – Batty Boyz

March 16, 2009

New Doom track, I guess ultimately it’s a song about gay boys. Either this shows Doom is held to no boundaries or that he can take any subject and craft a beat and make it work. 

Listen to the track HERE

Chanel Perspex Briefcase

March 16, 2009

Chanel always has the unique appeal that keeps fashion flowing in a positive direction. Not to mention Karl Lagerfeld still leads Chanel’s artistic direction in a simple and clean way. This Briefcase seen at the last Chanel Fashion show in Paris which showcased Karl Lagerfeld’s black power suiting is making it’s public debut. The bag with enough slots to hold all those feminine necessities. A place for everything and everything in it’s place, thanks to Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel.

designdemoMy first attempt at fashion illustration. (Portfolio Requirement) This is just a sample drawing, didnt wanna fuck up my fresh pad. This is a freehand drawing, no tracing of a runway model to use as the outline, just my hand and my mind at work here.

Still in need of a skin-colored prismacolor for hands, face and legs. Dont judge it too hard. Also my colored pencils failed to come sharpened. I’ll post more when I get the appropriate tools. Enjoy for now

 

I also designed an Obama Nike but have been hesitant to post it. I didnt want Nike to get a hold of it and sue me. (It’s heat though, the few who have seen it can attest)

The guys over at Valet commissioned Richard Haines, fashion illustrator and blogger of ‘What I Saw Today’ to illustrate the Spring’s best looks. Ranging from Burberry Prorsum to Lanvin each look is as individualistic as Richard Haines himself, who has a similar feel to Quentin Blake renowned for the illustrations of Roald Dahl’s children’s stories. Using quick but sure sweeps of the pencil to differentiate strong lines from detailing. Definitely a cool take on standard fashion illustration.

hermes-retrograde-pocket-watch-01

Pocket watches are for conductors and classy gents, thankfully this specific watch falls into the latter of the two. Hermes adds that old fashion classical feel with this 18kt gold pocket watch with 43.5 mm casing, suspended from a leather strap that doesn’t take away from it, as do many chains. Completely with moonphases to keep track of all those New moons and crescents as the days tick by. This may be the most stylish pocket watch ever made, and being that’s it’s Hermes.. you know it’ll do its job and look good at it.

Ever since word came out of Kanye West’s internship with Louis Vuitton and a future sneaker release. Kanye has been dropping photos here and there of different models. Ranging from deckshoes to high tops, now the first set of pictures from the line-up are out. Detailing many of the high tops that are to be expected. The shoes all feature a raised heel piece that is said to be influenced by the jackets from Dune (Now that is some cool shit)

Whether you’re fighting Shai-Hulud on Arrakis or going out shopping for the day, these shoes will make a lasting impression. Pictured above are the ones with a potential addition to my collection, The Kanye West sneakers for LV will be hitting stores in June. Keep your eyes peeled and your wallets stacked.
