We tried something new. We thought we explore the idea of collaborating with another brand known for making really cool bags. This collab is hopefully an experiment that might be a reflection of what's to come in the future.That said when you get the chance to check out our collab on an anime-inspired backpack with EquilibriumUSG.
"Covering an image with ornament is like turning it to gold, or setting it to music; it glorifies it, revealing the inner nature of the subject on its visible surface. The result is enchanting yet mysterious, for it is a revelation of something originally invisible, like a scent, a mood, or an ideology. Ornament is a metaphor, an essential element of poetry." Allison Stanley's web-page (www.allisonstanleyart.com) opens with this description of her unique style. In many ways, the quote is very similar to her art; beautiful, poetic, mysterious. I first met Allison in the artist alley of Anime Expo 2014...
We've been rather busy. This year, we hope to roll out some new exciting stuff. One part of this initiative is our new sketchbooks! Just like everything else, our sketchbooks will draw inspiration from our love of anime culture. :)In the meantime check out our very first anime sketchbook, Ink.
