WWII Customised bomber jackets

Just come across these WWII bomber jackets over at Fucknfilthy. The jackets were standard issue, however pilots customised the back themselves leading to some really interesting designs, each one telling you a bit about its owner. Interesting to imagine what your design would of looked like. Check out the whole collection here.

Tilt - A room half covered in graffiti

This project has been all over the internet recently, it is by graffiti artist Tilt and is for Marseille based hotel Au Vieux Panier. The hotel has only 5 rooms and they are re conceptualised each year by different artists and creatives.. a really cool idea, tilt has christened his effort Panic room. This project really captures the attention, the busy, layered graffiti half coupled with the opposing stark white section offers a bizarre sight to behold. Love the project however not sure how i would feel about staying in the room for too long.

Keith Haring – 1978 To 1982.

 Since before i even knew who he was or what his deal was i liked looking at the work of Keith Haring. His work's energy and honesty demands the eyes attention and through a very simple and clever use of line Haring created his own illustrative language. Now, over 20 years after his death, the Brooklyn Museum is hosting an exhibition that documents his iconic early work that set the tone for a very colourful career. The show includes drawings, videos, posters, photographs and subway drawings by Haring documenting the Pennsylvania born artist's style, tastes and ethos. Every time i come back to looking at Haring's work i like it a bit more, you get the feeling it came naturally to him and that he did not change or jeopardise his approach for anyone. This is why all these years later his work continues to be at the forefront of 'cool'.
