Event Recap SF to SJ

Here is just a few pictures from our weekend with Ojisun. The event was held at D-Structure on Lower Haight and if you have never been there before, you should check out their selection in fashion as well as their art pieces.

Believe it or not, this is the first time I've seen Gem paint live! Here is the start to two paintings that would be raffled to a couple of lucky winners!

Just for the kids, "I am the future."

Thank you to everyone who made it out!

You can't mistaken Gems style with the brush.

On Saturday we went to Black & Brown in San Jose to have another night of art, music and fashion. B&B has a dope set up, half the shop is new and vintage clothes and the back is an art gallery/studio.

This is the start of a collaboration canvas between Gem, Dee Jae and Satomi (Ojisun/Punk Drunkers).


These are only a few pictures of both events. To check out all of the 500+ photos click here. Literally, 500 photos..

I'd like to thank Gem for spending the weekend doing what he does best, making people laugh. Satomi and Showta for giving us the chance to work together, Takeshi of D-Structure/Punk Drunkers for setting up the event and translating, Dee Jae for linking everyone together and to everyone that made it out!

Ojisun x Gems Collab & Event

We are happy to annouce our toddler colab with Ojisun of Tokyo, Japan! We have both designed a kids t-shirt each and is based around the theme "I AM THE FUTURE."

Ojisun is coming to America! And i'm not talking about your Japanese uncle or dad's foreign friends. From the creators of the Punk Drunkers brand out of Tokyo,Japan comes Ojisun, which is a very cute and unique clothing collection for kids who have style and a sense of humor.

The name Ojisun is derived from the Japanese word for Middle Aged Man, (Ojisan)
So to think of kids as little middle aged people, it's quite hilarious. The clothing borrows from many trendy fashion ideas, yet fitting those ideas to a kids fashion sense. From a Houndstooth jacket with actual puppy dog tail, ears, and face scarf to match, to a collab with the Hello Kitty brand where she has traded her signature hair bow with a salary man for his work tie. Ojisun is a brand for children, where getting dressed for the day meets playing dress up.

Blurring the lines between fashion and play time is something that the brand has achieved wonderfully. So be sure to keep your kids looking fresh and fun in Ojisun!!

Starts 8pm @ D-Structure SF (Lower Haight & Fillmore)

Free Entrance

$2 Beer, $7 Cocktails

Live MC set from Kensho Kuma with DJ DnZ

Livepainting by Gem from INVS & Gems
