We at ILYSM are SO excited to announce our doodle-licious, Saturday morning cartoons, and VHS ready Tabi Sock collaboration with the magical Brianna Miller! (now available on VHS). Drawing inspiration from the Smurfs, vintage 70s puffy stickers, and Care Bears, you can kick up your sock game with two adorable colorways "Foot Friends" and "Eyeballs."
As part of our ILYSM4Artists commission, we partnered with multi-disciplinary artist Grace Insogna @disssgrace for our first Tabi Sock collaboration! We were super excited to add some of Grace's signature vibrant colors and patterns to our tabi socks!!
Gordon Parks was the first artist but the first specific picture was Blue Black Boy by Carrie Mae Weems. It was the first time I looked at a photograph of a black person that wasn’t solely based on their skin color. The picture and series make race obsolete for the viewer and I think that’s empowering for young black creatives. Making art for people's personal experience instead of art solely based on race based experiences.
