Are you an artist? Designer? You're going to want to get in on this! Mandee Bence, an incredibly talented artist/designer for New Era (among other dope collaborators) is looking for your help. The idea is that you need to create an 8"x8" black and white drawing, using only a black marker. The collection of drawings from all over the world will be pieced together, and combined for one larger than life piece at New Era's design office.
To participate, get to work on your drawing and share it on Instagram. When you do, be sure to tag @MandeeBence and #MandeeBence, and keep it cool. This will be going up in New Era's corporate offices, so leave any hateful or explicit content out of this one! Have fun!
Time is limited! So get working!
Anser has been leaving the city of Toronto more beautiful than it was found. We're not sure when the lovely face first appeared, but we certainly do remember where we first took notice. A pair of lovely faces adorned a small building on Portland street, looking out at the city. Before long it became apparent that these faces were watching out for us everywhere we went, all over the city.
After sharing a piece on instagram, a friend linked us to Anser's account. So we found the t-shirt collaboration with Eckhart Soul, and information about Anser's first gallery show in years. The Hashtag Gallery at 809 Dundas Street is hosting the show, with the opening taking place at 7pm on Thursday, February 27th. RSVP here for the show, entitled 'Crowded Kingdom'.
The work in this show began as graffiti, but in a far different dimension from the majority of what we see in the city. These faces reach the people of the city in a way that a lot of street art will not. If you aren't sure what we mean check out King Street near Dufferin. While it lasts...
The show will also feature Anser's venture into designer toys with BIG TRUBBLE, pictured below.
These are beautiful, inspired by The Neverending Story, and they are super limited edition. Get yourself one
