POW! WOW! x RVCA – RVCAloha

Every winter the advocates and artists of RVCA gather on the shores of Oahu to skate, surf and paint. Dubbed RVCAloha, the 2014 edition had RVCA and POW! WOW! painting a new mural at the Keolu Skatepark in Kailua, Hawaii. Battling intermittent showers and the harsh Hawaiian sun, Dmote and Soul completed a stunning piece of art complete with volcanoes and cosmic dolphins.

Jameson Works x Wild Beasts

The Jameson Works is about sharing the stories behind modern craft, and spreading the knowledge of how great craftsmen work today. For our first project, Wild Beasts get together with Parisian illustrator and animator Mattis Dovier to create a GIF-novel.

Mattis worked on the visuals for the GIF-novel, which will be accompanied by two unreleased Wild Beasts tracks. This is the story behind their making – creating GIFs and remixing the tracks ‘Soft Future’ and ‘Blood Knowledge’, which Wild Beasts have taken apart and reformed into a soundtrack. The guys will show that it’s not just what you make, it’s how you make it.
