OMG! What A Genius Idea! Not Marriage, I’ll Pass. I’m still on some “Love Stories Suck” type ish… But the idea of marrying technology with something that you can wear that is difficult to lose, peep this design/relationship innovation GENIUS. Cellphone? Ipod? The possibilities are the reason why I lOVE technology…and art…I DO, now and forever more. – TMNK
We saw the post-it note tributes being left for Steve Jobs, but let’s face it, what this man did during the course of his lifetime was BIG. He, and the products he created and inspired changed the game from the streets to the corporate streets, even to protesters #occupyingwallstreet! I son’t carry post-it notes around , so, I pulled out my sketchbook and left a quick tribute. But later the same night a group of us stumbled on a large piece of plywood/particle board being thrown away. And interestingly none us claimed it as our own, almost instinctively we all agreed that it would make a great tribute piece to leave to honor Steve Jobs. We respect both his genius, his hustle, and even his corporate gangsta aka what we call “Street Smarts.” So from AVONE, Leghead, Photographer Jay Gittens, and this NOBODY who cares… Thank you for creating a product, a company, and a culture that forced the world to THINK DIFFERENT. - From The Streets to the Corporate Suites, RESPECT. – TMNK

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
