Recently, I got to work on a series of illustrations for Toronto-based sportswear label, Muttonhead. Their passion, combined with a commitment to fair trade and ethical practices, is something rarely seen in this day and age. I tried to create my own interpretation of the brand and their clothing through the combination of different mediums, using natural and organic elements as well as neutral colours.
Matej works in a variety of mediums, such as books, magazines, clothing, drawing, painting, and illustration. In his work he is mixing many mediums such as hand-drawn illustration, watercolors and photography. Using natural shapes, abstract illustrations, ornaments, capturing the raw essence of an object, often with a bit of humor and huge importance on the “Message Said”.
See more of his work here.
Spring is in the air, and the Muttonhead S/S’12 collection will be dropping soon!!
Stay tuned as we will soon be releasing a series of stop-motion videos shot by the talented Sammy Rawal, and modelled by the dashing and handsome Craig Stickland and Sarah Miles.
Check out this rad brand from Brooklyn called Fleabags. The ALICE bag is from their Spring/Summer 2012 campaign and was made with recycled fishing net. These bootstrapping ladies were inspired by an NPR story about a fisherman who was affected by the BP oil spill and had a bunch of excess net he couldn’t use, so the girls tracked him down and voila the ALICE bag was born.
MOTTO: Fleabags strives to create products that are as green as possible while maintaining high quality and covetable design. Fleabags are made with organic and vintage materials, vegetable-tanned and re-purposed leathers, and other parts all sourced in the USA. All silkscreens use water-based ink. Fleabags are made in the USA with good old-fashioned sewing.
