Guest Artist: Grotesk
This season's guest glider collaboration comes from one of my favorite artist / designer's, Kimou Meyer aka Grotesk. He is known for his work with Zoo York, Nike and even Spike Lee! This is the first time that our glider plane gets realized as a 3d model – It's really cool!
Below is a mini interview we did with Grotesk to give you a little background on his design process and what inspires him.
His glider plane shirt is available in our online store here.
