The film truly highlights the immense precision of "Font Men" and their craft. Tobias and Jonathan are regarded as best in the business, with a resume consisting of designs made for the Wall Street Journal to even the President of the United States. We hope you can come to appreciate their work as much as we do.

I know Pow! Wow! Hawaii is long and gone, but thats no reason not to admire the amazing pieces put on by its participants. 

In honor of the 3rd year of Pow Wow Hawaii, I thought I'd compile a few articles that really showcase the talent and hard work displayed by the artists. 

Below is a nice list of different sites and videos covering the annual event. Hope you enjoy.

The Legend of Stan Smith Video

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

I'm no skateboarder myself, but I can definitely appreciate the complexities of the sport. I thought I'd share with you Adidas' recently released short film that dives into the multi-faceted life of tennis player/skateboarder Stan Smith. Even if skateboarding isn't your thing either, I'm sure you'll enjoy this video. 

Kanye West "Honorary Degree" by Complex

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Complex Mag honors the ten year anniversary of Kanye West's iconic "College Dropout" album (One of my personal favorites) with a sweet webpage designed especially to showcase interviews and achievements of Mr. West himself. 

You can catch the webpage and article here! 

It's a great write up and tribute to one of the most talented performers of this generation. Also pay very close attention to the animation and illustrations in the backdrop of the webpage because they were done by our good friend, Samuel Rodriguez of Cukui

Make sure to check out both of the websites above. Sam is a great guy and I had an amazing time at his solo art show, which displayed last year at Loft in Space. He is also a featured artist at Pow! Wow! Hawaii, so make sure to catch him around Kakaako this upcoming week.

So happy for our great friend Lawrence Seward, on the success of his recent solo show titled "End of the Rainbow" which debuted at SPF on January 30th. I know I'm a little late here, but if you're like me and didn't get a chance to get down there on opening night, the show will be up for display until March 2nd. Do not miss out on this one!

Also for more information, here's a great interview of Lawrence by Noe Tanigawa from Hawaii Public Radio.

If that wasn't enough to convince you to head down there right now, heres a picture of his iconic wood mask with John Koga & Mark. And get one of his limited run Mask shirts for a1000x, right here.

Pow! Wow! Hawaii! 2014

Friday, February 07, 2014

It scares me a bit to think how fast 2013 came and went. Just about exactly one year ago, I was volunteering at my favorite artists gathering Pow! Wow! Hawaii in beautiful 80 degree weather. Pow! Wow! Hawaii! gathers some of the best artists from Hawaii and the world and unleashes them in a small downtown community in Honolulu. The results are amazing--huge, colorful murals of all types of art on buildings and walls, street after street. Combined with art education, great food, and a blowout carnival festival, Pow! Wow! is fast becoming one of Honolulu's great events.

This year however, I'm hunkered down in my Boston dorm room in 10 degree temperatures, while the festivities go on without me. It's no secret that I'm bummed about missing the week long event, but I couldn't be happier for the Pow Wow crew which undoubtedly is putting on its best show yet. The paintings and events will be going on from the 8th to the 15th of February. 

If you're in Hawaii next week, and if you've never experienced Pow Wow, do not miss it. Let me give you a few tips on who to keep an eye out for during the paintings. These guys do not disappoint. Check out their articles below!

John Hina (Prime) 




As if being amazing artists weren't enough, these guys are all extremely friendly and accessible. I encourage everyone to approach them, shake their hand, and thank them for putting on such a great show for the community. 

This is a tiny taste of what's to come. There are so many more crazy-talented artists in attendance so head down to Kakaako and find out for yourselves!  Take some pics and send them to me--wish I was there!
