So I ‘m excited to finally introduce the upcoming rudytees brand project titled, CITY SERIES.
A vision that I have had for a while now, brings together my love of traveling and the people/
culture that represent each city. Each shirt will consist of a collage print, compiled of different
textures found in particular cities I have traveled too, along with the name to accompany
the image.
 
The basic concept behind this series of shirts is the idea of how a city is actually viewed and
represented. While many people see a city for the classic silhouettes and iconic or historic
buildings, I view a city for the people that live in it. Each shirt will have a photo of different
cities including New York, Paris, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, depicting the people of that
particular city. Then using textures of sidewalks, concrete, trees, water, buildings, wood and
other elements, the textures will be collaged together to represent the photo.
 
It’s a very loose and abstract idea, but I have already started the shirt for New York, and I must
say I’m pretty excited. So take a look at what I have started so far. Enjoy.

If you haven’t noticed Google’s homepage today, you might want to check it out. On the bottom,
Google just released their new Google Art Project, which literally takes you inside some of the
world’s greatest art museums, similar to using their Street View on Maps. Now, from a person
that has been to the best museums across the US and Europe, there is still nothing like being in
front of the actual artwork, but this is absolutely the next best thing. Check out the video and
link below.

This past week I was on a little vacation and happened to stop in France and Belgium. This is the town of Brugge, located in northern Belgium. Often called the “Venice of the North,” for its canals and old architecture, the small town was pretty awesome I must say. Although the weather was a little dreary, Belgium has awesome beer.

The Hills Clubhouse located in Arrowtown, New Zealand, is a contemporary golf clubhouse dedicated to bringing the game and landscape together. Designed by Andrew Patterson of  Patterson Associates, the roof is topped with native tussock and the large floor to ceiling windows and covered deck provide a grandstand view of the 18th green.
