Airwalk Has Been Brought Back

  Nostalgia is a funny thing. I've had some conversations with friends about how cool it would be to get our hands on some of the classic Airwalk shoes from when we started skateboarding in the late 1980's. Well it seems 25 years for Airwalk has gone by and now they are celebrating their 25th Anniversary with the re release of some classic Airwalk shoe designs. All of you ol' time skaters rejoice, the high top 80's steeze is available for $85 bucks. For those that remember the shoes used to cost $65 back in the day. Even with the price increase I'm gonna need to cop multiple pairs of these ol' school classics. Check out Airwalks mens shoe line....

Esquire… You Have My Attention

So I came across a video the other day that caught my attention. Turns out Esquire has a section on their site called "Women We Love". I'm not one to pay too close attention to fashion magazines. Not that I don't love style but there is only so much mind share one can dedicate to things. With videos like these they just bought a portion of my attention for sure.

Sterling Hundley Illustration

I come across so many talented artists, and its almost overwhelming the amount of talent out there. This site was going to be a site that featured many of these fine artists, but my lack of due diligence has left the blog posts nil on this and my delicious account very active. In an effort to change that though, here is a great and very talented illustrator named Sterling Hundley. His work is filled with great textures, patterns, and an excellent choice of color. I am impressed with a lot of his work. You should check out his site at www.sterlinghundley.com. Also check out his blog and get more information about his process and profession. He refers to his blog as Advice in his navigation so its going to be worth you while if you are interested in illustration and have a desire to learn. ...

Hey, show me your knits!

Hey, show me your knits! is the blog of Breane Martin. I met here while living in L.A. She is pretty awesome and I could go on with the stories from that time but I would rather let her own site do the talking. She has a passion for knitting and music. Not a bad combo, so check out here site Hey, show me your knits! ...

The Guy Mariano Story

I'm not sure how many of my readers follow the Epicly Later'd series of Guy Mariano, but its great. I've been seriously inspired by Guy's skating ever since I became aware of skateboarding. I used to watch his Public Domain part and go out and attack Bradner the best I could. Ha. Seriously though, you need to watch the 10 part series if you haven't already. For those that have, I know you will want to watch it all again. So get clicking. All of these are of course on www.vbs.tv and you should definitely look into all of the videos they have posted. Great stuff. EPICLY LATER'D  - LAKAI - Guy Mariano Part 1 Waiting for pop number three. EPICLY LATER'D  - LAKAI - Guy Mariano Part 2 Summer with the Gonz. EPICLY LATER'D  - LAKAI - Guy Mariano Part 3 The most warped family vacation of all time. EPICLY LATER'D  - LAKAI -...

CSS Tricks shows “How to Use sIFR 3” videocast style

So I thought I would try this out and link to it the tutorial here. Good stuff. View CSS Tricks "How to Use sIFR 3" For those not familiar with sIFR it replaces your headlines or any tag you specify really with a flash based out put of a font of your choosing. As soon as I work out why it is not working on my site I will have Lucana as the font for all of my Title posts. For now it seems to replace without the type showing up. Its always the details with this stuff, so I guess I need to keep digging. Update: Ok so I got it working. Everything was done exactly as described in both the videocast and the www.designintellection.com provided tutorials. What I had to dig to get was the way around it not working for me. After reading many comments I came across some people...

Layer Tennis and Matt Owens

When I was in college a guy named Matt Owens started a site called Volumeone.com Its hilarious now, but I remember being impressed with his use of animated gifs, because we have come so far since then. I'd say that it was his graphical style that made me open my eyes though. For me it presented the medium in the best form out there and showed that there was real promise in the web medium as an art form, a graphical platform, and blinking links was not all that this web had to offer. It was then that I switched up my focus in college from 3D animation to interactive media. I may not make the money that a 3D modeler or animator makes, but I know that I'm a hundred times happier doing web than spending days on something that never turned out to my own expectations. That said...

Old School With Style

Oh man I love old school pocket watches and antique fountain pens. So of course I was impressed with this very crazy skull pocket watch, the Memento Mori 1810 Skull Pocket Watch. When I consider how long ago this was created I'm even more impressed with it. Not enough to spend the $16,000 price tag though. ...
