SIGN PAINTERS the movie!

3:44 pm in art,design,movies,streets,video dustin hostetler

I had the pleasure of watching Sign Painters last night, and I highly recommend you check it out! It’s a graffiti writer, and graphic designer’s wet dream! It’s also a depressing commentary on progress and technology.

From the official press release:

“There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.”

You can watch it online today! Swing by their website, and enter “ghostsigns” for $1 off!

“Anything you can think of, I can paint it” @davidchoe

9:30 pm in art,art events,lifestyle,streets,web,weird dustin hostetler

David Choe is up to some pretty interesting things. You can tell he’s just having as much fun as possible, and enjoying every minute of his life. He is a living, breathing art project. Video above not make any sense? Hit totallynotgay.com for the backstory. It’s pretty odd, and as the videos go on you start to get sucked in. Very strange things happening.

At the time of this blog post, he’s up to episode 88 of his web series DVDSA with an amazing rag tag cast of characters. You can see the entertainment industry slowly creeping into all aspects of his public life as an artist.

Haven’t had enough? Travel back in time to 2012 and visit The World’s Best Ever to read an interesting post about his favorite place to eat.

While he doesn’t update his website much, you can follow him on instagram and twitter for tons of “Choey” stimulus. I’m really enjoying this ride, and hope it never stops.
