Coney Island Art Walls
This June we were invited by Jeffrey Deitch to participate in the Coney Island Art walls in Brooklyn NY, alongside a talented roster of artists including, Futura, Crash, How and Nosm and many more. Taking influence from our surroundings and borrowing a colour palate from the roller coasters and food stands, we made this Banana split hot diggity dog wall.

Corpse Corps is a skateboarding + lifestyle brand that functions as an art collective, cranking out well-designed skateboards and apparel in New York City.

They're currently funding via kickstarter so get onboard and support right here, and you'll be first in line for great Corpse Corps product.

"Our work focuses on graphic design, illustration, typography, and painting... in collaboration with a great network of artists, we incorporate a realistic level of grit in our graphics, with a strong attention to detail in the production of our boards and clothing. Our current line of skateboards have an innovative coffin shape with an old-school feel... like skateboard designs of an earlier era, when skateboarding was less competitive, more individualistic, and was grounded in a culture synonymous with creativity."

We love a hand written font and Marty Routledge is one of those cats that's damn good at it, especially large scale. Check out his mural completed in Brisbane last month with The Hours.
Kingbrown issue 9 will be out mid-year, featuring more of Marty's handy work, so stay tuned.
