Dime Piece x Unkommon Kolor

We here at Unkommon Kolor tend to like cool stuff. From art, to music, to personality. If it’s cool, we like it. Which means we like Laura and Ashley over at Dime Piece clothing. They are trendy and probably the most down to earth cool chicks we’ve ever met in the industry. We decided to do a Dime Piece x Unkommon Kolor hat. While this isn’t officially considered a collabo, we’re hoping that this might be a step in the right direction with those ladies. Only time will tell. Painted by The REAL Jeremy Biggers on a New Era 59/50 Philadelphia Phillies hat.

Feature Friday: King David

Ever so often you meet someone that is a carbon copy of yourself. You listen to the same music. You watch the same movies and TV shows. You have similar tastes in fashion. When you meet these people the familiarity makes you feel like have known them for years. I've known this cat for literally under a couple of months and it feels like we grew up together. Allow me to introduce you to King David a Communications Senior at Prairie View University. If you live in Houston and have been to any party within the last few years, he's probably taken your picture. Unless of course you're wack. In which case you got what was coming to you (no picture, and a personal invitation to get out his face). You've probably seen his facebook videos. You've probably heard him singing around the city. You've probably seen him dancing with his crew "Illovation". If you're a model in the area you've probably shot with him. Clearly, he's "sort of a big deal..."

The REAL Jeremy Biggers: So I'm here with my man King David. Creative genius on all fronts. Where did the name King David originate?

King David: Man, I was actually named after Kind David the goliath slayer lol. My mother is very religous, and she said that was her favorite bible character. Then in high school cats always said, "yo dude you're like the king of creating things!" Light bulb... history ever since.

TRJB: So, it seems that you were destined for this. Lets just hope you aren't killing any husbands to get a Bathsheba.

KD: Ha! Ill try my best.... we all know he was tempted
KD: "Please excuse my hands" - Plies
KD: Lol

TRJB: You do everything from photography, to draw, to paint, to dance, to sing... Which of these is your favorite form of expression?

KD: Hmmm... actually number one, that wasn't listed, is acting. Theater. I let it run my life, so that and being an only child, is my fuel to always have a passion to "be" someone/thing else... I dig being the potrayer

TRJB: I knew I missed something. But that's not difficult when you're dealing with someone that does EVERYTHING.

KD: Its all good... writing too... I used to hate writing papers.. But now the words are too easy not to use
KD: So anything art. I'm down

TRJB: Who are your favorite artists? Who inspires you?

KD: I'm big on finding the origin of things.... so cats like George Seurat, da Vinci, Van Gogh, Ansel Adams and Andy Warhol is were I found inspiration.
KD: I keep it (inspiration)... by admiring Spike Lee, Denzel, Dave la Chappelle, Tony Chu... and a host of friends that just push the artisty to the limits.
KD: So they all are my favorites, and they all inspire me as well

TRJB: You're into the fashion scene as well. In a word, how would you describe your style?

KD: Spontaneous - you just never know

TRJB: Who would win a fight between Will Smith (Chris Gardner) in Pursuit of Happyness and Will Smith (Ben Thomas) in Seven Pounds?

KD: Ben thomas... all day.. Cat swam the ocean daily, gave bone morrow wit no sedatice, and took the jelly fish head on!

TRJB: Yeah, Ben would stomp a mud hole in Chris, but Chris would get up dust him self off and crunch some numbers to figure out how much he was going to sue Ben for. Lets go back to photography. What do you primarily shoot?

KD: I shoot mostly events... nuthing like a good venue or sight to make u say "wth is that?"

TRJB: True. Anything you want to shamelessly plug before we go?

KD: Shout out to my artists, my fans, the people I am fans of and friends.
KD: Shout out to the entire www.com for making this world seem a lil smaller.

Didn't get enough of King David? Check him out on his blog, or add him on facebook. (search "King David")

The UK x Obama Winner!!!

Congratulations to our winner Porsha S., out of Spartanburg, South Carolina! Her name was drawn to win the Barack Obama Munny and the t-shirt of her choice. Way to go Porsha! Not only do you get to see Obama's mug on every media outlet for (at least) the next 4 years you get to see him in Munny form somewhere in your home.  If you didn’t win this time (and if you aren’t Posha, then I’m talking to you) stick around for what we have in store next. We will be releasing our spring line late next week and the quantities are very limited. Be sure to check back early and often because once they are gone, they are gone forever!

Feature Friday: Samantha Mattice-Lowery

Effective immediately there will be a new feature section here on the blog. I like cool stuff AND I like to be in the know before everyone else. Most everyone I know is the exact same way. There’s just something about saying “yeah, I knew about that years ago” once the mainstream gets a hold of it. And I am surrounded by talent in my real life so I’m going to use my blog as an avenue to help them shine a little. So, Fridays will now be known as “Feature Fridays”. Tell your friends, family, the crackhead that takes baths in the bathroom sink at the library downtown, the Arab guy at the kiosk at the mall selling jewelry cleaner, tell EVERYONE. And please don’t ask me to feature you. If I choose to feature you I’ll “have my people call your people”.

Samantha Mattice-Lowery is a student at the University of Texas at Arlington. She’s an artist in every sense of the word. She paints. She draws. She writes. She models. She sings. She can walk and chew gum at the same time. In short, she’s the dream girl you have yet to dream about. But that will change after today…

The REAL Jeremy Biggers: So, Samantha, you're the first person to be featured, how does that feel?

Samantha Mattice-Lowery: freaking amazing!

TRJB: You call yourself the "Jane of all Trades". What would those trades be exactly?

SML: my talents and hobbies things I feel I’m good at, I’m a bit of an artist, singer, writer/poet, model, goofball and just moderately cool chick all rolled into one complete package lol

TRJB: oh, sounds like you're a renaissance woman. Would you say that any one of these was your strong suit?

SML: lol would the goofball part qualify? i wouldn’t really put one above the other, I think I’m pretty good at all of them. They are all a part of me, each piece crucial in the puzzle of Sam lol

TRJB: Ok. How long have you been painting?

SML: just started in December, I never had the patience or knowledge or desire really to do so. I pretty much stuck to drawing, you draw a line in pencil or pen and it stays exactly where you put it lol. The skate decks were the first thing I've ever really painted.

TRJB: WORD?!?!?! Just less than a month? Impressive. I need to watch my back. Those skatedecks were a good look. I hear that you were inspired to do those as well as the hats by Unkommon Kolor!!! (yes that was just a shameless plug)

SML: yes very much so. Unkommon Kolor played a big role in those projects. I got the idea of the decks after seeing the Obama one they did, and of course seeing the hats I couldn’t let them have all the fun I had to try my hand at it.

TRJB: Shout out to Unkommon Kolor!!! It's no secret that you're a babe. Our male readers want to know, are you single?

SML: yes I am

TRJB: If you were in a genetics lab and they bestowed upon you the daunting task of building the perfect man, who or what would you build?

SML: a cross between Travis McCoy and Robin Thicke. Both are ridiculously talented and handsome, Travis is a bit more out there and goofy while Robin is more chill

TRJB: So you like goofy, artsy, heavily tattooed, smooth guys

SML: the tattoos aren’t a must lol but yes that’s accurate

TRJB: no tattoos? *uses pinky and index finger to smooth his eyebrows. That means I have a chance.

SML: lol yes you meet the other requirements so you're good

TRJB: In an ideal world where making money to survive isn't an issue, what would you do with your time?

SML: definitely travel, I’m a Texas girl all the way but I want to see the world, experience new cultures and learn. I would love to do what that guy on No Reservations does, travel to other countries and eat lol maybe not some of the more extreme things but it'd would definitely be an experience

TRJB: Anthony Bourdain. He's a funny dude. He's 5th place on my favorite cable white guy list. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman are tied for first place. Bear Grylls is 3rd. Mike Rowe is 4th.

SML: lol definately a great list

TRJB: you strike me as a bit of a tomboy. What girly things do you like to do?

SML: lol that’s because I am a bit of a tomboy, girl things...well I love WE and Oxygen I watch all those wedding shows that come on those channels lol and I’m a sucker for a good romance novel

TRJB: YUCK! I KNEW you had a flaw!

TRJB: :)

SML: LOL! be quiet you!

TRJB: So, is there anything you would like to leave us with?

SML: some say that first impressions mean a lot but I think its the impression you leave behind that means the most, so I hope I made a good one! Keep an eye out for my upcoming projects and thanks for allowing me the honor of the first to be featured!!

TRJB: Wow, on that note I guess we need to add philosopher to that list of skills.

Walker Texas Ranger Fitted

Walker Texas Ranger on a Texas Ranger fitted, Unkommon Kolor's most redundant hat to date. Painted by the REAL Jeremy Biggers. This hat could literally kick your hat's @$$. This is our tribute to the only man in history that can kill two stones with one bird. Legend has it he's also the only person fast enough to run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head. The one. The only. Chuck Norris.

I Jack. I Rob. I Sin.
I jack I rob I sin. All of professional sports owes a debt of gratitude to Jackie Robinson. Had it not been for him breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball, there would be no Kobe, Lebron, or even Michael Jordan today. This is our tribute to Jackie Robinson.

Unkommon Kolor!!! Joe Beast Fitted

"Joe Beast" album cover painted for Joe Smith of the Oklahoma City Thunder. I guess he's trying to establish a rap career for life after the NBA. I'm not entirely sure why every rapper thinks they can play ball and every ball player thinks they can rap, but either way, it was a commission I would have been a fool to turn down, so I was obligated to knock this one out.

Crackheads + commercials = WEEKEND LAUGHS!
