I am deeply saddened to pass along the news that a dear friend has passed away. Justin Van Hoy was one of the most motivated and focused designers I’ve ever had the privilege of calling my pal.
I met him when I first started publishing Faesthetic and producing my own artwork. We both starting hustling right around the same time and often shared stories and experiences related to the industry. When he relocated to Los Angeles I would pick his brain about all of the amazing people he was meeting.
Early on he worked for and with Shepard Fairey, and through Shep ended up having fantastic artistic relationships with crazy creatives like Mark the Cobra Snake. He also worked very closely with our mutual friend Roger Gastman.
He worked on several of Roger’s books, and through that experience he caught the publishing bug. Only recently did Justin’s brand new book make it to the shelves… Milk & Honey: Contemporary Art in California.
The publishing of this new book wasn’t Justin’s only proof that LA had accepted him as one of their own. His involvement with THIS gallery proved he was completely dedicated to his adopted city.
My heart goes out to his beautiful wife Holly. I am seriously seriously bummed about this loss. His long battle with cancer inspired many of us. He fought to live, and lived life to the fullest. Take a moment to remind yourself how wonderful it is to be alive, and tell all of your friends you love them.
Our friend Zach Gibson said it best… “so many people will be so sad today.”
I’m normally not one to promote iPhone apps. I don’t spend a lot of time playing on my phone beyond email and instagram, and I never read books on the tiny little screen. But The Silent History is changing things. I downloaded the app yesterday, and after playing around with the format last night I eagerly paid for the additional content.
Released daily, the app tells a story one page at a time. As soon as I woke up this morning, I devoured the first installment. Just released, The Silent History is the first app beyond facebook that I plan on logging into every day. It tells a story of a future where people stop talking. I’d tell you more, but I’m only one page in and I can’t wait to log in tomorrow.
There is so much more to this app, including location based content you can only read / open if you’re nearby. It’s really an incredible experience.
As a side note. The app was designed and developed in a geodesic dome in Cazadero, California. If you’re looking for a new and unique experience, download The Silent History today.
