What Would Shula Do??

SHULA-tee-design-pic-WEB

Of course, as Miamians, we’ve always wondered this. What Would Shula Do? So we drew him in all his 70′s hardnosed glory. And printed some tees. And contributed a grey scale version to a local zine “Pegajoso” by the always talented David Iglesias. We hope the Don likes it! Special thanks to David, Jerry Morris, Quake, Abstrk, Crook, & Rage Johnson for all contributing in some way, shape, or form.

Dead N’ Buried Album Artwork

DeadNBuriedFINALweb2

When Joey Scoreseze handed us one of his newest mixes, a strange reconstruction of various 70′s and 80′s zombie movie scores, we knew we had to handle the visual aspect of the album. It spoke to us, from beyond the grave. Our idea was a post apocalyptic Miami, from the vantage point of our very own street, and it just sort of escalated from there. Special shouts to Joey, Jerry Morris, and Quake, for coming together on this appetizing project.

Quick mural painted in 2 days for the Florida Panthers’ post NHL draft party in Fat Village, Fort Lauderdale. The Panther’s requested something graffiti style, but clean, using their team colors, logo, and a fun illustration we created with the palm tree and hockey stick. Special shouts to Quake and Rage for getting it done properly, Jill Weisberg for coordinating, and the good people of Fat Village for being so accommodating under intense Miami Summer conditions.

Cushy Gigs x New Era x Cool J’s – Snapback Project

Also put together a fun gallery show to highlight the hats and the artist’s works, titled “Locals Only” during Art Basel 2014. Thanks Abstrk, Atomik, Pucho and Quake for the amazing designs, Peter Vahan for the photos here, Felix over at Cool J’s for the vision, and Doron and Steven at Midpoint for allowing us the space for the show. We hope to be involved in more projects like this in the future!
