Check out this poster design for the Green Peace Design Awards 2009. Director of the Green Peace Awards Gjoko Muratovski says “the design is inspired by one of the most famous posters in the world – Che Guevara’s stencilled image based on Alberto Korda’s photograph. However, while I have kept the posture, I have replaced the face with the one of Dr. Cornelius – chimpanzee archaeologist and historian (and in a way a revolutionary of its own) from the cult movie ‘Planet of the Apes’, as a way of sending a hidden message of a mixed utopian/dystopian post-futuristic apocalypse, or paradise”.

SNEAKHYPE will throw up just about anything that either Eric Haze OR Stussy puts out, so when they get together, it’s a big deal over here at the SNEAKHYPE headquarters. We got pretty crazy last night because of this. We woke up this morning, and on my nightstand, I found the deed to a strip club. Apparently we bought some classy place called “The Snatch” last night. Stussy’s got a store in Las Vegas, and the man the myth and the graffiti legend Eric Haze hooked em up with a pretty dopeshow façade. There’s a cool video of the wall being painted at stussy.com.
