It's always fun to do a parody of something from Disney, or Star Wars, which is now one in the same if you really think about it. I also enjoy the fact of making something other than digital so it was time to annoy my friend over at Karvt.com to make me a couple iphone skins for the hell of it. We might do a small number of each for the core die hard Hydro / The Wars fan, but nothing we are going to go nuts with. These are some samples and currently one offs.
Alright, so once in a short while I'll throw up a little something for you to use and abuse. This piece was a exploration piece and haven't found a use for it thus you now can have a shot at trying to abuse this file.

So the Apocalypse didn't happen, but on Instagram, there was one fatality, it was my Instagram account. The @hydro74 is no more. There was no warning, no hint, no email and left are 15k followers going 'Where did that motherfucker go..?
Here is the story. Today (12-21-12) I started with a little font sale pic to trade fonts for beer money. In my standard, not so saint like fashion a image was sent to me that I laughed at and posted. The image was simple, a My LIttle Pony with a Fleshlight 'hooha'. (preview here) After 20 comments in a few minutes of 'LOL', 'oh shit', 'I call seconds'... I went for a smoke break to check again and found that my Instagram account was shut down. I post funny shit all the time along with booze i'm drinking, trips I'm on and some of my bad ass art I mouse click. Very unexpected.
Doesn't look like there is much I can do except start a new Instagram @hydrosevenfour which sucks. So, rule of thumb IG users.. show no fake pussy's!!!
Coming up this weekend (December 15th - 16th) Be Street Magazine is putting on a mega event in Paris featuring the best in Music, Brands and Art. I was truely flattered to be asked to be involved and to work along with some of the best out there as well as artist I admire such as: Jason Edmiston, Buff Monster, Iain Macarther & McBess. Obviously I'll fuck it up all proper but I'll have a great time doing it with Benny & Shu from Be Street Magazine.
If you are in Paris, come to this event. A epic list of Artist, Brands and Musical talent. Details here: THE BE STREET WEEKND!
I was recently flattered by a request from the Custom Sticker Printing Crew over at Stickerobot to do a mini interview for their site. Over the last 5 years I've been dedicated and obsessed with their product. Their vinyl custom stickers are the best in the industry and the fact they are silk screened just adds that little touch of perfection. I won't lie, they are my favorite vendor and one of the nicest group of people I've ever had the chance to work with.
So in true Hydro74 fashion, I took advantage of this interview to drop some knowledge on who I would give free stickers too, who I would love to beat up, granted it would be vice versa and show off a few favorite artist that have influenced me over the years.

I was invited to be part of the new Kidrobot Dunny Series called Apocalypse which features amazing artist such as Ron English, Jesse Hernandez, Huck Gee, Mishka & many others. During this process Kidrobot asked me to develop the packaging for this series as well which was a absolute honor. If you are into Dunny's check out this collection!
I have a great weekend coming up in NYC. During this time I get to work with Joshua Davis (Praystation) as well as meet up with Psyops. During my planning I contacted Kid Robot to let them know I was in town and instantly we decided to throw a mini art show & signing. Going to show off a few over sized prints and couple older prints. Pretty small but will also be signing and giving out free silk screen prints to the first 50-60 that stop by.
