DIY Wild Things Megapost

Published November 24, 2009 by Graham

A month after the premiere, people around the globe are still creating amazing homages to Where the Wild Things Are. We’ve received so many great emails in the past few weeks, we had to share a few of our favorites. Check out the parade of adorable costumes and art projects. These smiling wolf-suited kids are so sweet, I can already feel the diabetes setting in.

Spanish street artist Rodriguez Ledesma transformed a crumbling wall into a vision of Carol taking Max for a ride. Max Records sent us that fantastic photo of a jack-o-lantern– carved by his social studies teacher. Stop-motion animator Jessica Bayliss‘ larger than life Carol costume is one of the most brilliantly detailed we’ve seen yet. And cartoonist Steven Weissman’s sketches of the Wild Things playing chess and Rampage (the arcade classic) are positively inspired.

Last but not least, don’t miss this clip of rad pint-sized skater George Karvounis tearing up the skate park in a Max costume!

Kenneth Cappello’s Acid Drop

Published November 4, 2009 by Graham


David LaChapelle cohort and rad fashion photographer Kenneth Cappello wasn’t always entrenched in the glamorous world of Hollywood starlets– once upon a time Cappello was just another punk kid in Houston, Texas, taking pictures of his friends on their boards. In his collection Acid Drop, the sharply observant photographer teleports us to a moment of idealized suburban angst, eye-popping duds and gravity-defying hairstyles. Released through Tiny Vices and the Aperture Foundation, Acid Drop is a photographic marvel and, yes, a nostlgaic love song to a specific era– but it’s also a reflection of a universal adolescent spirit.

Well, as you all may or may not know we have been running a contest with our good buddies at Crailtap called “Where The Wild Things Ought to be.” The idea was for you to put the Wild Things into situations you thought needed “Wilding Up.” The Grand Prize winner was announced today on Crailtap but the response to this idea was so tremendous that we decided to make up a new prize – The Directors Prize – chosen by Spike himself.


Congratulations to Alex Synge for this entry of “Max on Wire.”

Day 19

Published September 15, 2009 by Dallas


Our good friends and photography tag team duo Jeremy and Claire Weiss AKA Day 19 are having a show of photographs in San Francisco. The show includes beautiful pics of what it was like to spend a summer raising kids, hanging out with skateboarders, traveling the world and listening to really loud music… you know… the essentials. You should go to it if you are in the area – and if you aren’t in the area, you should go to their blog and brush up on the aforementioned lifestyle.
