Chuck Anderson is the mastermind of NoPattern and one half of the brilliance blog. I was just recently introduced to Chuck Anderson’s work through finding on the nopattern website. Then I saw his work and was totally blown away. Chuck is truly an amazing artist with a designer’s touch. He is putting out great work and making irrelevant brands more in touch with their consumers. (umm, reebok) Anyway, check out his visual madness at nopattern.com, and read the words streaming from his finger tips at thebrilliance.com

 

 

A big selling point…

 

Well, it’s the Kanye West “Back to the Future” version

Complex Magazine just came out this week. Copped it as soon it hit the news stand at my school store. Anyway, the issue is guest edited by Kanye West and I have to say that this is not a bad issue. It’s still the same complex. One side shopping guide, one side entertainment guide. Go subscribe here or go to your local bookstore.

Mario and Brianna. No he is not high. πŸ™‚

I like to hang out with friends, but I also like to go home and have my quiet time. But it’s great to have a laugh once in a while and just find the happiness in life. So, last week some coworkers and I had an improptu birthday party with our good friend, Mario. Mario can be a dick sometimes and I want to bash his head in, but I consider him one of my good friends. So we took him out and had a couple of laughs.

If you’re british, then it self explanatory…

Unlike some people, I like backpacks. Backpacks are a young man’s purse. I buy a new bag every semester, and most of my friends think I am nuts. But like shirts and sneakers, I just need to get the freshest looking bag. Anyway, here are some bags that I may just buy. πŸ™‚

It’s a bag born out of a collabo between Garbstore’s Ian Pailey and Battle Lake Outdoors. I love the designs on this bags. The bags have this cut and paste look, as if someone took a bunch of bags and sew them together.

The Hundreds are one of the brands that represent L.A. street fashion to the fullest. I am a big fan of the crew since I first saw their tees on the net. They have built a great brand around t-shirts with clean graphics, conveying a message on their tees, and just straight guerilla marketing.

You can see a kid in Japan wearing their tees, as well as kids in San Francisco or maybe even Wichita, Kansas. Recently, they have branched out to a female line, a more sophisticated up town line, and finally, a boutique store.

Their fall line has dropped and I like. They are very good brand that consistently puts out great quality clothes.

There comes a point when you just have to say “what the fuck?”. LRG is a great clothing company. Big fan of their stuff. But ever since the Dead Serious Hoody, I thought that they turned to a gimmick to sell a product and mde me think less of their company. Now, I really think they are taking a bit too much with this Friday the 13th hoody. It’s not bad it if weren’t for the big chainsaws on the fucking chest. This industry is really a trend humping industry. Hope they come out with the Terminator hoody one day. πŸ™‚
