Food & Drink in the Dordogne Valley

posted by on 06/05/2015

It’s wonderful to see people take pride in something, food and drink are two things that cultures hold very close to their heart and are always excited to put on display for visitors. French cuisine is renowned and discussed all over the world, my experience at French Grill in Vietnam was possibly the best restaurant experience I’ve ever had. So with 4 days in the Dordogne Valley area of South West France, I knew I’d get more than just a taster of genuine French cooking. Prepare to suddenly feel very hungry, after the cut.

Chris B. Murray | Re-Illustrated Classics

posted by on 21/04/2015

Hip hop fans should instantly recognise the re-illustrated artwork for classics by Notorious B.I.G, Wu Tang Clan, Big Pun and Gang Starr. Chris B. Murray has done some dope work, the 36 Chambers illustration being perhaps the most exciting, the prospect of a Wu Tang inspired anime or manga series is too much to handle. Now if I could just get a copy of one of these to hang on my wall… More after the cut.

Fox Grom Photography

posted by on 02/04/2015

Adam and I spent last weekend escaping the city and shooting some visual goodness that you’ll be seeing very soon. It’s photography like this that inspires us to venture out into the wild, armed with our cameras and search for every possible opportunity for a great shot. A photographer going by the name Fox Grom took his huskies out onto a thawing frozen lake and the results are like something you’d expect to see in a fairytale movie, check them out after the cut.

Ray Collins – Seascapes

posted by on 01/04/2015

While travelling I would often watch surfers from the beach in pure amazement as they expressed such a great sense of freedom riding the waves, it seemed to me like the equivalent of flying on water. The ocean is so powerful and for a brief moment a person would channel this power in a spectacular display. For this reason I love the work of Ray Collins, a photographer who has captured the waves in some of their most expressive moments, showing their strength but also their beauty. Check out the beautiful imagery after the cut.

This short film by New Yorker Video looks more closely at her work, the thoughts and the process behind it. In it she explains that everything can be drawn differently by different people, a very simple but important and often overlooked concept. You don’t have to do something like someone else did in order to be successful at it, there are always different approaches. More after the cut.

The Reinvention of Normal

posted by on 28/03/2015

Dominic Wilcox is a designer, artist and inventor who turns everyday items into something out of the ordinary. Stones covered in gold leaf become “Luxury Skimming Stones” for example and the much talked about self driving car gets an upgrade  from Wilcox, who has designed the “Stained Glass Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future.” This short documentary takes a look inside the mind of the man himself and reveals the method behind his madness.

Larsson & Jennings’ New London Store

posted by on 27/03/2015

We’ve been big fans of the minimalist watch brand Larsson & Jennings for quite some time, their watches are affordable while still maintaining their place as an investment piece that will be with you for years to come. Their classic and minimalist design means each piece is, excuse the pun, timeless and made to withstand the follies of fashion trends. The new space on Monmouth Street in Covent Garden is designed just like their watches, clean and minimal. The Swedish brand has also brought a touch of home into the space with a Fika bar so that you can get your caffeine fix while choosing your perfect time piece. Check out the store in more detail after the cut.
