Messages of the day reflecting what i’m feeling. In addition to “Be disciplined in your life so that you can be violent and original in your art” and “be realistic, demand the impossible”… i just want everyone to remember NOTCOT is all about the imagery, and less about the story and the words. Words are filler. Images are everything. Here anyhow.
The CARGO EyePod contains 14 single use application wands, each filled with CARGO’s signature, long-wearing eye shadow gels, in a rainbow of seven pretty shades, packaged together in a convenient and portable travel case. Each shade provides a sheer wash of color that can be layered for a more dramatic look and layered on top of traditional eye shadow to add gleaming highlights and shimmer where desired
The rumors are true! I’ve been hearing things around that Royal Elastics have been up to some branding makeovers, but i never expected these. Those who think i only shop womens, well usually womens are more interested and have more design variation… it takes a lot more for a men’s shoe to peak my interest.
This Benicarlo takes their line of trainers to a whole new level. It feels more like experimental Prada. Yes the type that can replace flip flops, boat shoes, trainers, etc. with ease. The type that functions as your perfect dress up, dress down shoe… works for airports, or a classy pool party. Need to see it from the top, but liking what i see… now where are the girls’ equivalents?
also check out the one Josh Spear showed me after the jump.
Ok Questionable Content junkies, pintsize is too cute on that hoodie. Nice one, for those in the know, playfully eyecandy-like enough to get you reading the comic if not… and stands alone nicely, no context needed…
But also, today’s QC - in the words of Jermacide… Pintsize spoke “British”! Read it aloud in your head, its more fun that way. Hehehe.
Get Narc’d? I never thought i’d want a shirt that addressed narcosis, or even really considered a punked out tshirt line focusing on diving, but now that i’ve seen it, i can’t get it out of my head. Tropical dive, gorgeous wonders all around, then suddenly feeling a little light headed… and WHAM… coy everywhere? Just feels like a trippy dream… manifested into a simple T-shirt. Cool Hunting found this Singapore group, and it looks like they’ve gotten a lot of press in the asian and diving mags, i admire the group, and feel somewhat inspired to start meshing my passions in new ways. SCUBPUNK!
Refreshing packaging design for home waxing… Parissa seems to have gone with a full on packaging design makeover… another image after the jump. Unique take on a microwavable bottle, roller applicator, with a colorful line of products.
Found it while wandering Whole Foods…
More shirts printed~! Getting the hang of the process more… starting to be fun even. For everyone that placed orders, a batch shipped out today, so they should be in your hands soon. Also got playful, and test printed on a limited edition Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince bag… drop me a line if you’re interested in more shirts (or the bag!)
Too gorgeous not to give its own massive space. “With out a doubt, the Erotokritos masterpiece of the season. With diamante jewel buttons included. ” On LeTrainBleu.
Those who know me well, know the art of McGinness makes me weak in the knees. Krudmart has this new awesome tee by him, commemorating the fatal pulls of that “i love you” mix tape we’ve all partaken in… finally finishing the ability to listen and relisten only to relive the past in a bad bad way =P … ok, ok, or thats what they mention in the description anyhow… you can come up with the teen melodrama story behind this one yourself.
designed by Yorgo Tloupas “The F**K B**H badge is the ultimate airport customs accessory. Its metallic construction makes it sensitive to metal detectors, and its subtle message guarantees you a special treatment by US Customs officials. Revive the free spirit of the sixties today with a bold statement expressed in a flowery style.”
This was one of my favorites of the Stereohype B.I.O Series 1… that whole 60’s stylization makes anything just seem happier… or helps disguise its contents until people actually read what it says.
My first all alone at home screen print! Yes, i’m thrilled, its my little experiment of the day… in the very limited run of well… 4! But was experimenting with sun exposure for emulsion, and doodles with multi colors… and taking a paintbrush to the thing… If you recognize the image, it’s because it was the first notcot post image by Shade Elaine (and yes, i kind of had my way with it, to play with color and experiment).
WANT ONE? for 15$? Details after…
Few things in life approach such topics with such cartooniness… well… ok yea so ShadeElaine and i found this bizarre and tacky/silly and were somewhat horrified yet amused by its existence… but seriously, (or maybe we’ve been out of the loop) do you often see Sanrio-ized sex bangles? Complete with pink trains, minty green backing, and can’t forget those glittery sparkly Austrian Crystal bits! Wow… and if sex doesn’t make you say HURRAY! maybe “mmmm Carbs” or “Yay! …. Sugar” is more your style. [kudos to the Spear for this site]
Relish calls this white backed image a FRIENDSHIP RING It makes me wonder if i don’t have the right types of “friends” for a ring like this. But that tension ring (on black) is pretty sweet… i love things that look so clean, mixing that harsh cold steel with the translucency and strength of a jewel in such a strange juxtaposition… *gush*. Take a look at the rest of the B.Tiff collection, a few interesting rings, the rest i’m not as fond of.
p.s. i’m not shopping for rings for a specific reason, no “friends” to buy me diamonds… but maybe my curiosity for them is that right hand ring marketing schpiel working its way into my brain!
