Nice. I like how they’ve made a pair that’s got the JB flair on the outside for the daring and then another one with doodles on the inside of the frame for folks who delight in having little style secrets. I’m not sure who’s stocking the new shades right now, so Maek advises you drop them a note through their contact page. You can also bug them on Twitter @MAEKeyewear. Which I’m about to do in 1…2…3.
It’s getting difficult to maintain Doodlesplatter on my own, but when I saw these, I knew I’d have to find some time. Somewhat unbelievably, there are no other Jon Burgerman socks in the artkive! Clearly that had to be remedied, so Jon partnered up with Sock It To Me to produce a pair of doodled socks in women’s and men’s styles. Each pair costs an affordable $9. Check out the rest of their funky foot-enhancers here.
Jon provided two designs for sunglasses by Ogee. One is shown here. The rest of the designs in the forthcoming series of sunglasses are by other Nottingham-based designers.
Mystery solved! The metal mystery doodle last pondered here has been revealed to be Metal Niki, a “laser cut stainless steel keyring dongle character.” Metal Niki measures 1.5 x 2.3″ and is yours for £4.00 here.
We know not what this Mystery Metal Doodle is all about. A member of the Dutch Posse received it during a chance encounter in a Vietnamese restaurant. He reports: “The object is around 5 cm x 3 cm, metal, about 2 mm thick and has a small hole in top for a chain or something.” Is it a pendant? A medal? A mark of the Illuminati? A secret Posse initiation rite? For now, it’s simply a metal doodle.
In 2004, Jon had a guest spot on Andrew Bell’s Creatures In My Head blog. While most of the other guest artists took a more “traditional” creature approach, Jon gave us the “You Have No More Money…or Friends” monster.
Andrew An anonymous user (see Andrew’s comment below) tagged it with, among other things, “abstract,” “color,” and “lips”. The original post is here.
Budget blocking you from picking up one of these Pickle Pig Plush Collabs With Felt Mistress? How do you like little, metal and free? These exclusive pickle pig pin badges will be added to any Burgerplex purchase made within the month of June.
Jon’s current Brain Drain solo show features some fresh fabric collaborations. These scarves were done in conjunction with Lin Fashions. You can see a few more of the scarves on Jon’s site (8th picture down) here.
I just stumbled across this image on Flickr. It’s none other than a Kindered Doodler, Mims of Stoodle! Here, she and a friend, have made a Craola commitment to Pinkcess and Gumps. Nice!
Worryknott and Gumps diecast metal pin badges are briefly back in stock at Burgerplex for £3 each. Whereas Jon refers to the method of attachment as a “spikey bit on the back,” we civilized sorts call it a “tie tack.” The Worryknott pin originally accompanied Jon’s resin Worryknott sculpture. These 1-inch Worryknotts are about an inch tall and come in red. On the subject of worry, wise words from the Burgerman:
Worry really does solve nothing. Just think of all the previous times you’ve over worried about something… did it really turn out that bad? It can’t of done too much else you wouldn’t still be here. Focus on the good, not on the possibly bad.
Rock the pin as a reminder.
