OBEY (Me)

I will start off by saying, I think Shepard Fairey’s work is good, and of course top of the tops in that genre he is in. Ironically, I am wearing an scraggly old Obey shirt right now, more so because I like the shirts fit. We have also sold his book releases on our site and sold a lot of them […]

Guilloche & Moire

Our newest lineup of 2009 stock vectors, images and videos; Guilloche & Moire. Guilloche is an engraving technique in which a very precise intricate repetitive patterns or design is mechanically etched into an underlying material with very fine detail. Specifically, it involves a technique of engine turning, called guilloché in French after the French engineer “Guillot”, who invented a machine “that could scratch fine patterns and designs on metallic surfaces”. The machine improved upon the more time-consuming practice of making similar designs by hand, allowing for greater delicacy, precision, and closeness of the line, as well as greater speed.
