It’s All in the Mix!

So we had this idea for the ultimate made-to-order design + silk-screening service… Rather than cutting and sewing two or more patterns together, wouldn’t it be great to come up with prints that incorporate those patterns into one screen? Your final product would be an interesting and unique mix of prints and patterns to create one quirky design…
Collection 2 from head-to-toeQuick-sketching and watercoloring makes “work” fun and is always the initial stage of our evolution of printing…

Then follows the computer rendering…

So were you able to guess what our subject matter is here? The answer is stated on the caption.

Finally printed on canvas, our friends at Bowery were very eager to experiment with our fabric designs and played around with the concept of leather-trimmed tote bags…

The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan, supports CARA and “Save the Laguna Pit Bulls”…

For those who are not familiar with this cause… An estimated 230 pitbulls were rescued from a dog-fighting syndicate in Laguna.

According to CARA, “The 230 rescued Laguna pit bulls presented overwhelming challenges for the rescuers. Many of the animals were found in very poor health. They were cruelly chained to posts buried in filthy mud with nothing more than cut-out steel drums for shelter. They were terribly malnourished with wounds inflicted during dog-fighting. Many were suffering from exposure to the elements.

Despite medical care, many dogs perished or had to be euthanized to end their suffering. Today, 170 remain and we continue to medicate them daily because of their ill health from the poor living conditions in Laguna… “

Riding High with 13 Lucky Monkey

Internalizing… Feeling bad to the bone with 13 Lucky Monkey (a bad-a$s design duo of biker rings and jewelry) in order to produce some sketches for their customized bandannas…

13 Lucky Monkey x Evolution of Printing are forever fans of “Furoshiki”, literally meaning bath spread. A traditional Japanese way of wrapping basically anything, mostly as bundling or transporting things like bento boxes, a bottle of wine, fruits, cookies, or for wrapping presents and purchases as an eco-friendly alternative to paper and plastic and is considered “an indispensable tool in Japanese life”.

Modern ways to use this piece of cloth is as a fashion accessory like a scarf or a bandanna. Tie them onto your bag as an accent or hang them on the wall as décor. The possibilities are endless!

Thank you to the Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan for providing this wonderful, easy-to-follow guide.

Printsperation: Reykjavik, Iceland

Traveling is a tool for creative inspiration and we try our best to see the world.  The change of surroundings can change the way one thinks as we find ways to improve our design and craft. New experiences bring about new ideas.

With an open heart and an open mind, we made our way to the unknown and other-worldly Iceland…

Back to basics. A simple signage of wooden planks and stenciled letters.

Back to basics. A simple signage of wooden planks and stenciled letters.

Signs, murals, maps, graffiti, skulls, owls, vikings, beliefs and superstitions, and politics, this artistic city’s many forms of expressions. No wonder many call Reykjavik as hipster central-
