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. His instrumental cover of Queen’s rock classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” is
nothing short of jaw-dropping.

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 graphic on the board.
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 in L.A. -RB
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. The artwork has a home at the Pompidou Center Museum, the powerhouse modern and contemporary art museum in the Beaubourg neighborhood of Paris.
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.

Here’s what our mobile set-up looks like at our HQ in the Lower East Side.
