Right so I'll be the first to admit that the blog has gone to shit a bit recently with my job taking precedence and everything else getting put on the back burner. To be honest I haven't really been all that inspired and that is why I'm also thinking of changing focus and making this more along the way how it was going for a short time earlier this year with the emphasis shifting away being purely about music and more about trying to cover everything from art to music. I'm more comfortable with it being that way in all truth.

So without further ado I'd like to feature an artist who I am slightly obsessed with, KAWS. He's been working on the streets since the mid-90s and has pretty much cornered the market with his designer toys, urban vinyl if you must, some of which he sells through his website Original Fake and you have to be incredibly quick off the mark to buy any of it as it all sells out in a matter of minutes. The best introduction to the man and his philosophy is best said in this video that i-D Magazine did.

I absolutely love his companions and if you want one you'll have to scrape together your Christmas money and be prepared to live off dry bread and water as they cost an absolute fortune.

Here he is working on the streets of New York and Tokyo with commentary by Ron English.

I do enjoy the man's work and you should check his blog for more.
