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.

Nintendo unveiled it’s newest console today the Wii U, at the E3 Gaming Expo in Los Angeles.
Wii U shocked me, I wasn’t expecting to write anything about a Nintendo console any time
soon but this gaming system deserves some serious credit. The controllers buttons are
surrounded by a 6.2 inch touch screen that can be used as either a second screen for the
television or an entirely different perspective for in-game play. Buttons include: dual analog
sticks, d-pad, a front facing camera as well as four shoulder buttons. Another great feature
is that Wii U has backward compatibility. This means that original Wii games as well as Wii
accessories (like Wii Fit) can be used on the new console. To learn about the Wii U’s other
innovative features check out the video below and/or visit Gizmodo.

As I finally got a chance to watch one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films, Black Swan,
I couldn’t help but notice the elegant typography used within the credits. Movie credits are an
essential to a good film and must fuse the visuals with the actual minds behind the film. Here
director, Darren Aronofsky, uses the dramatic Didot typeface to describe his dark, disturbing
ballet movie. Notice the opening credits use a black background, while the end credits use white.
