As the great philosopher Puff Daddy once said, "It's all about the Benjamins...eh eh, take that.... take that". We here at Unkommon Kolor concur with his teachings. It is indeed all about the Benjamins, especially during tough economic times. So, we figured why not make our own money... sort of. The “Leave the Money on the Night Stand” fitted is painted on a Boston Red Sox New Era 59 50 by The REAL Jeremy Biggers aka The Dude with the Beard. Done on commission. We’re really excited about the relaunch of the Unkommon Kolor website. If you still haven’t seen it please please please take out time to do so. We (and by we I mostly mean Arif the Scientist) worked hard to bring you the new look. www.unkommonkolor.com

Shout out to our boy DJ Frosty! He wanted to rep the UK at his upcoming shows... We had to oblige him. You saw this in the UK Leak video earlier this week. Again, I must remind you, we are posting new work everyday this week until the site is posted. Tell your friends. And check back often!

We painted some leggings for some of the models in the show, and promptly packed them away after everything was done. But shortly thereafter decided they needed to be seen by the masses and not simply by the people who attended the show. So here they are. The premier Unkommon Kolor custom hand painted leggings. These puppies were literally so tight we had to paint them while the models were wearing them. Talk about dedication! We're not entirely certain we're ready to sell anything like this just yet, but the moment we figure out a conceivable solution to mass producing them, they will be on the site ready for purchase.

It's been months since we've finished a pair of shoes but as we leaked in yesterday's GSDM video, we got ish done on "Get $#!+ Done Mondays". Here are the 100% custom Unkommon Kolor Space Tiger Nike Dunk Low. Designed by Blue the Great. Painted by Blue the Great and the Dude With the Beard. We're planning to post something new everyday this week in anticipation of the relaunch of the site. We felt it was time to remind you why we are your favorite artist's favorite artists.

It is an old architectural trick used since the invention of mirrored glass: covering buildings with the reflective material and declaring that they blend in with the surroundings. Most architects use it to convince wary citizens that it is OK if their building is tall because it will reflect the sky and nature. The rendering always makes the building disappear, and the reality is always a big clunky mirrored box.
But a mirrored box can be elegant, too, such as this treehouse by Swedish firm Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter. TreeHugger loves treehouses (see ourroundup of them here) when they are designed to minimize impact on the surrounding landscape. And in this case, it looks like the architects have pulled it off successfully.
