Goodbye '09. Hello Twenty-Ten.

Photograph Taken By: Simone de Beauvoir

I want to wish all of you a safe, and happy new year. 2009 has been a tough year for many of us... lets make twenty-ten a year full of optimism, peace, love, and joy for everyone; friends or enemies, loved ones and strangers. I hope that all our new years resolution can help us through the new year, and in turn, make better of ourselves.

Best Regards,

Dylan Jet and the rest of the dregs

Brent Rollins

In the state of a "trip" Brent Rollins artwork and graphics depict discombobulated people and things in which are collaged, to create an array of design. Using images of sports stars, porn stars, religious icons and other obscure images, Rollins' is able to explore within his style, which has no boundaries and takes his own approach as a designer to create the unique and individualize himself from the rest of the pack.

Richard Avedon

Richard Avedon (May 15, 1923 - October 1, 2004) was an American Photographer. In New York City, he set up his own studio and began providing photos for Vogue and Life Magazine. Avedon did not conform to the standard technique of fashion photographs. He did not like it when the models just stood there emotionless in front of the camera. Instead, he showed a full scale of emotion; smiling, laughing, crying and even action. He was always interested in capturing the "personality and soul" of the subject.

Kustaa Saksi

Saksi is not just another graphic design illustrator trying to make it in the strenuous world of art, but an artists with meaning and message behind his works. He contrasts the fact from fiction, the world's ideals to the minds eye, leaving no room for untouched possibilities. "If the image itself is strong or weak or ugly or beautiful enough, it will seduce the viewer for sure. The great thing with images is that you don't have to explain to anyone." Majestically complicated, the "colorful funny shapes" and messages of his pieces are oddly clear to grasp and understand. Although the messages and meanings may differ from person to person, as a graphic designer, he doesn't worry about the message that his images tell.

"the worst one today can be the best one tomorrow"


Who are Rinzen? Well, it is a five person art team, in which, came together in Australia as a design collaboration. Rinzen includes of five members, Craig Redman, Karl Maier, Adrian Clifford, and Steve and Rilla Alexander. With the use of silkscreens and edgy melds of styles and techniques, Rinzen brings graphic design to life in a very eccentric way. As a team, the thought of individualizing a style to each particular team member would seem reasonable, but in this case, they all prepare to work as individuals on any style that they seem to fancy. Hectic it may be, but, it seems to be a never ending effort of creativity and the constant yearn to be motivated to inspire, and inspire to be motivated.

"we are very obsessive about what we do..."

Dada Life

Still in the holiday party spirit? Swedish electronic group Dada Life mixes experimental dance beats with a touch of dubstep, a genre that incorporates deep bass with electronica. From very techno-sounding songs like "Big Time" to the more upbeat "Happy Hands and Happy Feet," the duo's range of genres touches on many different styles. Dada Life's main motto is to dance and throw your arms up in the air -- things basically impossible not to do whilst listening. So crank up the bass on your speakers, and as duo themselves have said, "destroy dance music and have fun. Don't look back in the past. Always go forward." Words of wisdom, perhaps?

Olympia Le-Tan

Olympia Le-Tan describes her line of handbags as “beautiful boxes in which to store ones treasures in.” The written words were replaced with silk, and pretty colors of felt cover the top to create a stunning handbag. Ever since she was a child, her passion was to “find rare tomes to add to her ever- burgeoning vintage book collection.” Now with these precious pieces, she has created an unreal accessory to spice up any outfit.

Michael Sieben

Michael Sieben is an Austin-based artist, working as a professional illustrator and designer mostly within the popular skateboard culture. He has also been a staff writer and illustrator for Thrasher since 2004. He has done many art pieces for Volcom, Bueno, and his own company called Roger Skateboards. All in all, Michael Sieben has got to be one of my biggest inspirations. Any artist who puts emotion onto the face of their creations will hands down be one of my favorites, but Michael Siebens' just stand out from the crowd.

JJ Hudson

JJ Hudson’s upcoming collection has given punk a whole new name. He sets no rules with his “fuck it all” style, making fashion more carefree by giving you the ability to mix and match patterns while still being trendy. His bold colors enable you to stand out in the crowd and make a statement, and his ability to layer interesting pieces are sure to create a unique look. Self-confidence is key when it comes to wearing items from this collection. “Originality implies being bold enough to go beyond accepted norms."

Minjae Lee

Minjae Lee is a young artist out of South Korea. His works are reflective of the inner thoughts and struggles of every day people. Enticing the viewer with vivid color schemes and a sense of innocence that can't be ignored. As a 19-year-old, he uses very simple techniques and steers wide of some of the modern day tools and supplies that in some eyes could better the over all outcome of his pieces. With crayons, acrylics, and markers/pens, he is able to get that very organic feel.

Art isn't about the materials your have but the eye, mind, and hand that is behind the masterpiece.

Welcome, Ghosts

Annette Pehrsson, an almost-exclusive film photographer, creates effortlessly soft images with a touch of eeriness. Shadows, bones, and muted colors play together to form quiet scenes with just the right amount of emotion.

Hair Raising


Hair and horns take center stage in this video from Vnfold Magazine shot by photographer and stylist Antonella Arismendi. The video's inspirational imagery and post production techniques are ones that I will be incorporating into future projects of my own. I'm not sure how I feel about wearing accessories made of hair but I am truly inspired by this video.

"Graffiti will always receive a bad wrap and I don’t necessarily disagree with that. That’s part of the appeal of doing it. It’s illegal and will affect most everyone who sees it, either in a positive or negative way. I think graffiti is best when it’s intrusive and not pretty to look at. If I was making everyone happy, I would really question whether I should be doing anything at all." -Parskid

"I think it’s just the belief that there is more to our lives than just the period between birth and death, and that there is more to us than our physical selves." -Parskid
