…Cup and Saucers can be cool?

Cup And Saucer

ClickforArt.com does ‘original art, limited edition art prints & boxed canvas prints from the world’s most exciting new artists’, and now they’ve branched out into a custom line of unique Cup and Saucers.

Each piece comes in a beautifully designed box, and includes a signed and sequentially numbered mini print along with a certificate of authenticity. Only 250 of each design will ever be produced though, so act fast if you want to get your own piece of Series One.

…Circular Painting is beautiful?

Circular Painting

Fly on the Wall created this amazingly fantastic “Circular Painting” for the Discovery Channel, and it’s awe-inspiring to watch the artists bring the painting to life through movement and motion alone.

Artists include Bryan Devlin, Luis Tolosana, Warren Lewis, Ree Treweek, Daniel Ting Chong, Mike Morocco, Toyah Moon Humphreys, Paul Ressel and Josh Ginsburg, and you can actually see one artist’s style evolve into the next, which just adds another level of awesome onto this already impressive project.

Watch and enjoy:

…It’s Things Thursday: 1333 Minna?

1333 Minna

If you’re looking for a unique fitted hat that combines contemporary urban style and aesthetic with old world craftsmanship and precision, then look no further than 1333 Minna.

1333 Minna is part of the Goorin Brothers hatmakers group, and “is an evolving alliance of artists and designers based in the heart of San Francisco. Each seasonal collection is crafted form fine fabrics adorned with custom patterns and inspired illustrations”.

This spring, the collection is designed by Reyes, Steel, Retna, and The Mac, all members of the world famous seventh letter crew. Each item is designed to challenge the limits of traditional design, while telling the stories of the artists through color, texture, and patterns.

There’s no denying that hats like these take a bold style to pull off right, but if that’s your thing, then 1333 Minna is for you.

…It’s Things Thursday: Modofly?

Modofly Moleskin

Modofly is an artist collaborative that hopes to “inspire artists and users alike with the hope that they themselves will be continually fueled by the feedback loop that happens when people work together”.

Their laser-etched Moleskin notebook line features fantastic covers that have been designed by top artists, and then laser-etched onto the outside to help fuel your creativity.

Since artists mostly fueled the Moleskin revolution anyways, why not just get one that makes the outside look as good as the creativity trapped inside?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Muxtape?


Muxtape is “a simple way to create and share mixtapes”.

It’s goal is to bring back the joy of laboring over a mixtape for hours to get everything just right, and does so by only letting you create one mix per account, and limiting your mix to just 12 songs. (Each no larger than 10 megabytes.)

When you’re done, the music is then streamed through your browser, so it’s not exactly a file sharing service, but since the only way Muxtape prevents copyrighted music from being uploaded is with a meek little warning: “By uploading a song you agree that you have permission to let Muxtape use it.” I’m guessing Muxtape is going to be dealing with a few high priced lawyers in its near future.

Regardless, it’s a nice (and simple) service that has some potential to help undiscovered artists get their start, and it relies on the “sharing is caring” motto, so I hope some sort of agreement is made to keep Muxtape around.
