I am a huge fan of recycling everyday objects into art, and Nina Boesch does an amazing job at working with discarded Metrocards. She takes the limited color palette provided by the cards to make some great works of art by cutting and creating a collage of the cards.

Mutiny has edits that are usually like 5 steps ahead of everyone as far as quality go, and this one is no different. I have seen a few people play with the rc helicopters, but nothing has turned out anywhere close to as good as this.

If you have picked up a BMX mag lately chances are you have seen FEDERAL‘S new ad campaign with awesome paintings of their team riders, along with a very layered, street art look featuring layers of torn posters over one another. They have really stepped their game up lately, and its the first time I have been stoked on the brand since kids in South Jersey were riding their dual wishbone frames.
