The Hundreds x Blue The Great Capsule Collection

The Hundreds teams up with popular artist Blue The Great for a special collaboration on a capsule collection, merging two worlds together.

The Blue The Great x The Hundreds collab has seemingly been in the works for over a year as the artist has been working with The Hundreds design team on incorporating his style and art into pieces that are both stylish and up-to-par with his artistic standards.

Our goal was to bring fans of Blue and The Hundreds right into the studio, ready to create, ready to get messy. Blue’s paint-covered overalls that he wore while making countless pieces of art were cloned and made into an allover print pair of Shorts. We turned his painter’s palette, full of brilliant colors and mixtures and personality, into the most unique ceramic ashtray you’ve ever seen.

Fossils Of Iconic Cartoon Characters By Filip Hodas

Filip Hodas has created a series of skulls that are inspired by some iconic cartoon characters that hold a special place in any kid’s heart. The Prague-based 3D illustrator has merged his interest in skulls with his work in CG and has crafted each skull using 3D programming. Each realistically designed skull is contrasted by a bright and colorful background.

The series features a fossilized Goofy (Canis Goofus), Tweety Bird (Canaria Tweetea), Minnie Mouse (Mus Minnius) and other characters including like SpongeBob, Scrooge McDuck and Popeye.

The main goal of this series was to get better at sculpting and to experiment with Zbrush to Substance Painter workflow, For each skull, I tried to adjust and improve the workflow which resulted in quite visible differences between the first (Canis Goofus) and last in the series (Anas Scroogius). All of the textures were procedurally made in 3D programming.

Documentary | BANKSY & THE RISE OF OUTLAW ART

Check out this trailer for a documentary on the mysterious and elusive street artist Banksy. The doc, called Banksy & The Rise of Outlaw Art, focuses on how Banksy helped to transcend the world of street art.

As the world’s most infamous street artist, Banksy’s political art, criminal stunts and daring invasions have outraged the establishment for over two decades, but despite being one of the most important figures of our times, Banksy has remained an enigma, with little known about the circumstances of his life and work. His rise coincided with the emergence of Street Art, a form of illegal, public art that evolved from the graffiti scene to change the face of cities across the world. Banksy became the leading figure in this revolutionary new movement, assembling a multi-million dollar empire and changing the way that we think about art. Through it all, however, his identity has remained shrouded in mystery…
