PENNY SWEET

Inspired by a clip from our current obsession: Pretty Sweet, a skateboarding video, Tony and I did the following . . .

Unfortunately, the video of our skate prowess refuses to post…so the above photos will have to suffice. Teamwork makes the dream work.

CLASSIC SESSIONS NYC

Here’s a recap vid from the last CLASSIC SESSIONS NYC featuring the SUPER talented BrandUn DeShay and his band. We teamed them up with the amazing illustration crew The Collabros on the art tip.
What’s CLASSIC SESSIONS? Reed Space and Reebok came together to create a physical public space where the Music and the Art can literally meet. Each session is a pairing of an artist and a musician. They meet, chat, rap and just build off each other. Then they go off and create based off that meeting.
We’ve converted a classic LES, NYC storefront to become a recording studio and gallery space. The art is done right on the walls of the gallery space. The music is actually recorded inside the same space. And everything plays out for the public to see and interact with. After a few weeks, it all comes down and we do it all over again with a new pairing. That’s it. It’s not a store. We don’t need your Facebook account and you don’t have to sign in with Foursquare. It’s just a space to BUILD.
The results? CLASSIC.

CLASSIC SESSIONS ROUND 2

This weekend NYC! We’re proud to present the next installment of The Classic Sessions at Reed Space. The space explores the inter-relation between ART and MUSIC. It’s crazy how visual artists always say they are inspired by music. And our musician friends are always influenced by designers. That conversation kept snowballing…and it finally culminated into this: CLASSIC SESSIONS NYC.

CLASSIC SESSIONS NYC

A while ago, my friends at Reebok Classic and I were chatting about music and art…and how they are so interrelated. It’s crazy how visual artists always say they are inspired by music. And our musician friends are always influenced by designers. That conversation kept snowballing…and it finally it culminated into this: CLASSIC SESSIONS NYC.

Check out how our first pairing with up & coming MC, T.Shirt and the dynamic duo of graf, URNewYork.
