Can’t take this one for Grant-ed

I’ve always felt like getting my photo taken in an old school diner or burger joint is (unfortunately) the closest I’ll ever come to time travel. That’s why I’m digging this Drive Thru Social Club series and just about everything else from creative hybrid Grant Spanier.

Peep more of his projects and a manifesto worth reading on his website or Instagram.

These photos will make you want a Power Glove

I was pretty young when the NES Power Glove came out, but thanks to The Wizard (Fred Savage + Jenny Lewis, y’all) I remember it. Well, it turns out that image searching Power Glove can put some magic into your life. Check out some of these rad photos. You might just find yourself impulse buying one on eBay, or at the very least, copping a sweet pin.

Hell, there’s even a documentary on it.

Women who draw ridiculously well

Women Who Code is cool and totally worth supporting, but I’m always going to be a Women Who Draw kinda guy. It’s an open directory of pro female illustrators, artists, and cartoonists who are open for freelance work. The special thing about this site is a focus on increasing the visibility of females of color, LBTQ+, and other minority groups that don’t traditionally get as much recognition.

It’s really cool to see the diversity of styles on here that comes with a global spectrum. Let’s support these amazing artists, and if you are one yourself, pull your portfolio together and get on here.

Hugh Holland makes me nostalgic

His book is a coffee table classic, but I really appreciate that Hugh Holland is still posting his film skate photos from the 70s. That era wasn’t without its problems, but there’s certainly something about it that makes it seems so damn carefree.

Here’s something that never goes out of style

As long as I can remember, black leather jackets have been a staple of edginess for both men and women. Having worn mine to shreds, I recently started browsing for a replacement. While several listicles let me down, I was pumped to find out about The Jacket Maker and their Rocker Biker Jacket. It has a little something going on without going overboard and costs far less than some of the pricey options out there. Let’s rock ‘n’ roll!
