ROOK just released this new video detailing the inspiration behind their 2013 Spring/Summer collection. Judging by the video, ROOK decided to get back to the basics when designing their latest collection. Watercolors, colored pencils, and even crayons were all used throughout the design process. It’s cool to take a look into the inspiration behind a collection. Often times, we only see the finished product.

My gummy replicas would be delicious. However, due to my slender frame, a shrunken gummy replica of me might turn out looking more like a gummy worm than a gummy bear — which is fine because everyone likes the worms better anyways. Regardless, if you’re in Japan on March 2nd or 3rd, you should stop by FabCafe and get some gummy-you’s made. ”They will be holding a 2-part workshop at their Shibuya location where males will use a 3D body scanner to create gummy humans in their own likeness.”
Artist Ebon Heath combines his love for typography and art with his new series of work entitled “Art Speak.” Ebon and his team of designers take different letters and typography’s and erect these sculptures in an attempt to bring the words to life.
