Richard Phillips calls Punks & Poets team member Kassia Meador a "21st century renaissance artist who brings a mastery to everything she does, and whose contagious energy simply changes everything around her in a positive way." We feel similarly, which is why you shouldn't miss her new gallery show Cloud Hunters at AR4T (Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow, 210 North Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, California).
Kassia will be debuting new work alongside fellow artist Gomez Bueno from May 2 (the opening reception kicks off tomorrow, May 2, 2013 at 6pm) through May 26, 2013. Be there, or miss out.continue reading
Because we like to keep it real-life, we recently invited our finest friends and a good chunk of our Punks & Poets team to hang out at Smog Shoppe in Los Angeles to eat, drink, celebrate socks (and drink some more). Our crew put on the gathering to show off a respectable collection of collaborations from Tyler Warren, Cycle Zombies, Mark Oblow, Brian Bent, Kassia Meador, Kid Creature, Keep A Breast and Imogene Barron. Because each collection is as different as it is covetable, we let the socks shine in their own way—from a gallery of artist-designed breast casts from Keep A Breast to a cat-themed photobooth from Imogene Barron. To top it off, we all got a little bent out of shape (in the best way) while watching a contortionist do her thing in some of our favorite women's sock styles—good ol' fashioned fun. Check out more snaps from the soirée at gabeone.com/stance.

In July of 2012, 30-plus friends came together, bu way of motorcyles, and gathered around a campfire outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A conversation arose and some loose, foolish ideas were thrown out... 5 of those friends committed and ran with those ideas.
5 friends. 3 States. 7 countries. 6,000+ miles.
From their front porches in SLC to the Panama Canal. Follow and support their journey on instagram at @cr_2013.continue reading
