Go Inside the Muddy World of Swamp Buggy Racing

0 Comments

Former classmate and fellow SCAD alum, Malcolm Lightner, has been working on his Mile O' Mud photography project for several of years. The Florida native recently sat down with American Photo magazine for an interview, which details his investigation of the subcultural phenomenon of swamp buggy racers.

Bandito Brothers Host Luftgekühlt

0 Comments

We recently attended a Luftgekühlt event here in Los Angeles. Hosted at the Bandito Brothers headquarters, it was a celebratory gathering of Porsches that spanned nearly every conceivable year, make and model. Hypebeast TV produced this short which barely captures a few of the incredible, air-cooled monster machines that were on display. If there is ever a Luftgekühlt event in your area, we highly recommend that you attend. You won't be disappointed.

Volvo LifePaint

0 Comments

Here's a fascinating new product that's being promoted by Volvo, LifePaint. Aimed at making city cycling a bit safer, it's an aerosol-based, reflective pigment. The paint is invisible (colorless) under natural light, but at night, reflects headlights brilliantly. Apparently, it's only available in the UK at the moment.

And we can't wait to see what 'alternative' and unintended applications that mischeivious minds will soon be able to realize with this new product.

Rock 'n' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip

0 Comments

Robert Landau has a new exhibit on display at the Skirball Cultural Center. Based on his 2012 book of the same name, Rock 'n' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip, the show documents various music-related billboards from the heart of the entertainment capital of the world.

Advertising and it's ability to target the passing motorist seems to us to be both very American and very Los Angeles. Good stuff.

Field Notes 'Two Rivers' Edition

0 Comments

 

We've been fans of Field Notes since their humble launch a few years back. Besides being a functional, well-crafted and domestically-produced analog product, it's also that magic touch of Aaron Draplin that continues to draw us in. Watch the above short which shows why the latest release, the 'Two Rivers' Edition, is so special.

We've just wrapped up an interesting and unusual project here in Los Angeles, a painted mural for Coco's Variety Shop. Although we are not quite ready to do a full reveal (there are still tons of photos and video footage to edit), we can show this teaser of the now-completed facade.  Or if you live in the area, you can visit the mural in person at 2427 Riverside Drive, Los Angeles

California Inspires Me: Mark Mothersbaugh

0 Comments

Imagine what it musta been like for a seven year old kid to 'see' for the first time...and then to see the Beatles for the first time...and then to be a witness to the Kent State tradgedy. Such are the highlights of Mark Mothersbaugh formative years. Another fantastic installment of the Google Play and California Sunday Magazine series.

Our most recent drop, the 'Mondays' tee by Ornamental Conifer, sold out within 24 hours of it's release, which is easily the fastest selling graphic tee that we've ever produced. We are grateful to everyone who managed to purchase one (or two). All of the orders have been packed and shipped and some of you may have even already received your delivery. If so, post a photo on Instagram and be sure to tag us (@P1Brand) and Conifer (@ornamentalconifer) so we can see 'em too.
