Terry Richardson vs Jackass

Last Friday we went to check out Terry Richardson’s new exhibition opening at Laforet in Harajuku. The theme was “Terry Richardson vs Jackass” and the photos were totally out of control! The collection was made with lots of energy, Terry is crazy and the Jackass guys are insane crazy so you can imagine. The show is until 5.8.2008. Go check it out! We also ran into Terry’s protoge, super rad photograher Keiichi Nitta-san! Thanks for the “AGGHHH” shot!

Natsukashi!!! Its been a few months ago already since we shot in HK for the Kumon 50 world tour. I had a chance to hook up with some of our old friends… Perry Cheng and Helen Yeung from Communion W in Hong Kong. Helen worked with us on Nike Presto 04 Urban Canvas and Perry helped us with the Nike Womens Aura campaign. Here we are feasting on HK dim sum delights. By now, Perry has moved to work in Shanghai. Hope he’s liking it out there. Wherever you both are hope you are rockin it hard! It’s nice to see old friends doing well.

Office Art + Suspicious Red Scooter

Actually, for a few days someone has been parking this awesome red scooter illegally in our parking lot. So thanks to the combined brain power of Davi and Naoki, they decided to display it at the front entrance. Rad!

Finders keepers. Anyone want a red scooter?

22日が最終日です。期間中作成された素晴らしいテーマの数々は、iGoogle Art Cafe Blogでご覧ください!

iGoogle Art Cafe was full again this weekend. There was a line of people waiting to get in! “iGoogle Theme Factory” was running full-blown since there was a non-stop flow of people doing their own drawing and bringing in their original design. On Sunday, we finished creating the 100th iGoogle theme! Big thanks to Johnny who helped out on XML coding, retouching the images and consolidating the workflow for this project.

A Google engineer from Mountain View came in to do his own doodling as well. Seeing all the happy faces made us really glad that we executed this project. The photo above is the adorable children of Davi’s who dropped by to do the shoot at the cafe.

The last day of the Theme Factory is on April 22, starting from 15:00.

Also, please see the gallery of great themes that were created during this event at the iGoogle Art Cafe blog.

Springtime brought back our favorite fine artist-cum-freelance copywriter+dragon-slayer Claudia Cristovao, arriving from China via London via Amsterdam, and originally hailing from Portugal…phew! It’ll be great to have her in person joining on Honda this week. That’s her and +cruz above.
