Hawaiian-bred musician and ukelele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro stopped by our office while in New York on his tour for a brief performance that was amazing and impressive for its musicianship, range and energy. Shimabukuro has pushed the boundaries of how the ukelele can be played and what it can play.
Some pix below of the exterior and entrance to the hip, environmentally-conscious and well-designed Casa Camper Hotel in Barcelona. The hotel is an aesthetic offshoot of the famous Mallorca-based global footwear brand Camper.
A large sticker of Japanese icon Hello Kitty adorns a wall like the graffiti next to it on a Shibuya, Tokyo side street.
We found this skateboard parked in the corner of a high-designed, glass-walled conference room in the offices of a major New York City advertising agency, where we were spending part of an afternoon watching presentations of TV-commercial reels by various directors and visual effects companies. We love the panda bear
We came across this really cool piece by artist Kelcey Fisher near Windward Circle in Venice, in Los Angeles. The Indian headdress motif has been a recurring image this summer, notably on this season’s Stussy T-Shirts. We like the contrasting iconography. This is the first piece we’ve encountered by Kelcey
A modern-art classic and an example of the ready-made genre in extreme, French artist Bertrand Lavier’s 1993 “Giulietta (-vue-de-dos)” is a crashed red Alpha Romeo car rescued from a scrapyard.

We travel often here at Global Graphica, and even when we’re in New York City we’re often on the move and often carrying several devices with us. Having small, lightweight, portable gear is important, as we need to be prepared to work wherever we are, whether at a cafe in
Pix below of fresh street artwork by the Brooklyn-based artist Rae BK. The wheat-paste (or “wheatie”) artwork is above a warehouse doorway on Orchard Street, in New York’s Lower East Side (and literally a stone’s throw from Global Graphica HQ). This is the best, most recent work we’ve seen by
In the minimalist courtyard adjacent to MACBA, Barcelona’s centerpiece modern and contemporary art museum, there’s large sign — itself a work of art — that displays the made-up word “Ravalejar,” a neologism in the Catalan language. The sign explains the part of speech and usage of “Ravalejar,” which alludes to
We’re fans of Apartamento, the international indie shelter and interiors magazine that bills itself as “an everyday lifestyle magazine.” Some readers may recall we’ve posted about previous issues of Apartamento in the past. It’s edited and published with love and a finely woven aesthetic that’s both minimal and warm. The
Here’s a nice piece of photo-based stencil street art by the artist TONA in Amsterdam’s Centrum neighborhood. The artwork is wheat-pasted and shows a small, blonde child holding an aluminum can (perhaps a can of beer?)
Our friend H.I., who lives in Tokyo, has “Imelda Marcos” syndrome when it comes to shoes. He owns more than 300 pairs and has even had custom footwear made for him. When a shoe-designer friend of his offered to make a pair of shoes for him and asked him what
We can see the Ink 148 hotel penthouse from the rooftop deck of our agency’s offices in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen. The penthouse has been aptly dubbed the “Heaven Over Hell’s Kitchen Suite.” From this perch, there’s a stunning view of Midtown Manhattan’s dense mass of skyscrapers. We were thinking
