My most recent antics with Art Director Adam Weissman resulted in an online Look-Book. Stussy & Nike teamed up to release their 'S&S' Collection (that's Snow & Street to the less street of us) and commissioned a few silkscreens from me to help peruse their wares. I hadn't envisaged the problematical nature of creating a strong image when the majority of its content was white. Making monotone tests of various photographs allowed us to pick out the stronger ones and ditch a few along the way. A moment of panic saw me tear up a couple of similar prints neither of with were working and swap their respective sections. The resulting collage (shown above) I felt became my strongest piece.

Whilst preparing for future Editions I found myself back in a familiar dilemma with regards to how I sign, initial .. make my mark on them. I've never really been a fan of hand signing & if requested prefer to endorse the back of a print. With this in mind my super assistant Isabel created some innovative designs out of what only appears to me as two tricky consonants, one of which became a rubber stamp. In an ideal world it will appear embossed into the paper as opposed to inked.
