Water, water, everywhere…

So, I bought a Banksy book today (and Freakonomics, geeky! ), and thought that I might try and theme my post around graffiti, so I started hunting down a hoodie with some kind of graffiti style to it, but most of them blew harder than Glitter, luckily I found this really cool hoodie from Palis whilst on my e-travels and thought “who needs a theme, the people want quality and dammit, that’s what they’re gonna get!”

And so that was how I came to post a hoodie with a big tsunami and sneakers on it. The detail looks absolutely superb, although having such a large image, especially on a white hoodie, might not be to some people’s taste. If you look at the detailed pics on the Karmaloop page you’ll see that there’s some cool red crosses stitched in on the top right seam, which doesn’t really fit with the design, but is a nice touch on its own.

P.S. Could an arty type tell me which artist was the inspiration for the big wave in the design?

    it’s based off of a famous print by Hokusai, “Behind the Great Wave at Kanagawa”

    @Mads: I haven’t really got too far through it, but I like the photos so far (even if the image resolution isn’t great on the full page shots), though I would like a few more words in it, a back story to some of the images.

    Just in case you do want to buy it, you should be aware that it was published in part as three smaller books, so it’s not all new material.

    I’d say it’s worth the £13 I paid, but I don’t really know much about street art, so my judgement is based upon it looking cool.

    @David: Thanks a lot for the info, I remember the Hokusai print being in the art block at school, so I recognised it, but I had no clue who it was.
