November 2008 SNEAKHYPE
Sakurako Shimizu has been designing this crazy jewerly called called the Waveform Series. This interesting jewerly is based off of sound waves. Shimizu has connected some sort of sound equipment that translates music or spoken sound into wave form and has it lazer cut into metal rings, bracelets, and necklaces. Pretty dope. [designCorner]
With 2008 coming to an end its time to get ready for next years new kicks. This year was a good year for the shoe game though, especially for nike, they came out with some crazy kicks. This pair of forces is set to release in 2009. It is hard to make a pair of Air Force 1’s that aren’t fly as hell but these were put together right. The Red/Grey looks great and im diggin the croc skin on the heal. [via kicksonfire]
Check out this badass. It’s not too often these days that you find an artist whose illustrations are all hand drawn. Give it up to Si Scott for bringin the heat the ol fashioned way. Pencil to paper.. none of that fancy schmancy electrotechnology computer stuff that doesn’t require any talent. He’s done some commissioned work for Nike as you can see above. Check out his personal site here, but perhaps a better place to check out his work is at this portfolio. And here is his Nike portfolio.
Check out this Fragment Design lighter, its straight dope. The snow white color and simple design help create the best lighter I’ve ever seen. (via Fragment Design)

Graffiti, skating, freshness, money, and beautiful women… that’s the hip new lifestyle all the kids are into these days. Here’s some stuff from Alife that they just shipped out to in4mants. They collabed with Krink for a few that I really like. Alife. And Krink. [in4mants]
Gary Fernandez is a dopetacular freelance artist from Madrid who now works out of Vancouver. He heads this clothing line called VelvetBanana… maybe the name sounds cooler in Spanish. Regardless, good stuff coming from Mr. Fernandez. Check out his personal site hurr. [thecoolhunter]
