“Knitta Please”

A new art form called "Yarn Bombing" or "Knit Graffiti" is a new and creative trend on the art scene. Magda Sayeg, founder of "Knitta Please", is a Austin, Texas based artist who uses the craft of knitting to express her creativity in urban areas, her art has transformed into a form of street art.  In a way, she is able to create free publicity with her artwork just like graffiti on the exteriors of subways and bridges. When her art is strategically placed in urban areas, it creates a spark, a sense of urgency to create, accept, and to be influenced. She has covered buses, cars, trees, and streets with yarn, and she takes the traditional role of knitting to other modern levels of creativity. Yes, your great grandmother may have knitted a pair of mittens for you, but did she ever knit a tree or a bus in Mexico?
Yarn to Magda is the spray paint to graffitti artist. I assume the White House may be the next project on her list to "change." She even makes yarn Iphone covers.  Here at Junkprints, we have been caught by the knitting bug as well. We have been making scarves as tall as trees, as thick as tires, and as warm as (...), well lets just say the sun. There called "Eff Winter" scarves, the title speaks for itself and others too, and they come in different colors like Eat Your Oatmeal, Everybody Loves The Sunshine, and Dooky Brown.

JUNKPRINTS RADIO EP

The promotional campaign is officially on!!! I Love music....no, I really love music. In a time like this, when hipsterism and the fear of being a hater have tainted our judgment on the music we like, I have decided to make ya'll a lil mix tape. I swear if I hear one more person say "I love all kinds of music and have 8 terabytes of everything including songs that don't even exist yet" or something along those lines I'm going to puke! C'mon son, we all know you have like 10 songs that you play on repeat...don't be ashamed, it's okay to have a preference. I have preferences and want to share them with you (like I always do ;). So here's the story of the EP, some of the tracks I kinda begged for, and some were inspired by a retarded long list of songs I was really feeling that month. I distributed the list to my super talented musician pals, kinda made them work together under the direction of Mr. Tough Dumplin and they returned with this.  This project was filled with many late nights on the roof of an undisclosed Red Hook building, a stuffy Kensington Bedroom Room, coast to coast chit chats,  jokes, tears, new friendships and old ones. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do and tons of love and thx to all the musicians on Junkyard Radio! Junkprints Radio Vol. 17

The following is the track listing and here's a link to the whole thing! Now ya'll know that this project wouldn't be complete with nifty packaging and a collection of merchandise including apparel, skate decks accessories and shoes inspired by the ep.

LAPTOP BAGS AND DC

Tomorrow we will be hitting the road and heading to DC. This is the very first out of town market for Junkprints. I'm super duper and excited and scrambling to get everything in order.  So far things are going pretty smooth. In the last 2 weeks I've released over 20 new items, now that the space is all in order. I've been making like crazies. The Junkyard EP is still in the works. Along with it a slew of tees, hoodies, keds and skate decks (even some iphone cases) The tracks are arranged , mixed and the new items have been designed. This collab effort has been great but has taken forevers to get going. Guess I'm learning how to work with people. Once someone told me 'one travels faster alone, and further with companions' So I've tried to keep this in mind during this process and give the project the patience it requires. More on that later! DC is calling. This saturday if you're near the nations capital, stop by and say hi and buy more junk 😉 Crafty Bastards Arts and Craft Sale! WHEN: OCTOBER 2nd 10-5p WHERE:Marie Reed Learning Center at 18th & Wyoming in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC New laptop sleeves available in 2 flavors and multiple sizes!
