"Black Bunny Blossom" cushion out now!
NEW kozyndan "BLACK bunny blossom" limited edition art cushion is available now from Click For Art.
We have released several cushions with them in the past and I have to say, they make a great product. The cushions are so soft and the print quality so fine.
As we prepared to create the silk screen edition of our "Bunny Blossom" earlier this year, our printer showed us a misprinted version of the print as a color proofing. In it he had printed the bunnies black instead of white. We thought the image rather striking, but it was just a one off misprint and never recreated… until now for this cushion! We dig it!
New Archival print Edition: "Spirit Animal Collective (Tinted)"
Now available in our web shop is a new limited edition COLOR version of our popular "Spirit Animal Collective" image.
"Spirit Animal Collective (Tinted)" is a limited edition of 150 signed and numbered archival digital prints on Somerset watercolor paper with deckled edges. Its 28 x 22 inches plus 3 inch white borders.
The print is based on kozy's 2009 drawing "Spirit Animal Collective". The drawing was the culmination of kozy's 4 year-long "Unknown Portraits" project, which involved Kozy's nearly obsessive search through old photographs in junk shops from Australia to Spain to Northern England to San Francisco to our own backyard in Venice Beach (and more!). Most of the drawings were the size of playing cards, but for the final artwork Kozy create a massive graphite rendering of a 1940's-era New Zealand primary school class photo. In it she imagined the camera to reveal the spirit animal within each of the students. This summer we decided to produce a colorized version reminiscent of old tinted photos (Dan's grandmother used to tint photos as a side job while raising her children) and this is the result.

Proper Business People now!
We haven't had new business cards done up in years since we don't get out much, but recently I thought we should take ourselves more seriously so I had some made up. I have to say these new Luxe business cards by MOO knocked our socks off. They are just amazing in qaulity - the feel of the paper, the weight, the printing quality, even the packaging it comes in - just super nice! It almost makes me want to go out and netowork! So cool.
Notice the layers of different color paper sandwiched in the middle of the card.
I should also say that their website is super easy to use - you can basically design a card from start to finish from it. They are a class act.
Aloha!!! from Maui
Back from an amazing week in Maui, Hawaii. Its the kind of place we are resistant to liking. Its just too easy. Its where everyone wants to go for vacation, and thus filled with stuff we hate in a vacation location: resorts, over priced crappy food, a constant barrage of tour operators, and loads of muggles. Thankfully we had an amazing opportunity to stay on the eastern half of the island, away from the tourist hordes, and another Maui revealed itself to us and we fell in love with it. Damn!
New archival print "Hunters: Charks an' Kittehs" is now available in our web shop
Limited edition of 150 signed and numbered archival digital prints on Somerset watercolor paper with deckled edges.
30 x 24 inches plus 3 inch borders.
We wanted to draw some comparison between two similarly voracious hunter killers - one is loved and the other is currently being senselessly hunted to extinction...
