The graffiti world recently lost one of its greatest pioneers with the unfortunate passing of Mike Martin, also known as Iz The Wiz. From his beginnings at the start of the 1970s, Iz The Wiz would make his way to the top of New York’s graffiti subway ladder and effectively cement himself as a legend. Through his efforts, he also made graffiti a more acceptable artform helping create public painting spaces among other contributions and for this, a legion of writers around the world will miss his presence. Alan Ket gives a detailed insight into his relationship with Iz The Wiz over at his 12ozProphet blog.

DC is getting ready to release the Fall 2009 Double Label™ Project with Sixpack France. Featuring men’s premium footwear and apparel, the DC x Sixpack Double Label™ collection marks the most extensive collaborative project to date for the DC brand, and is slated as the first of many that will run over several seasons. Dubbed “Non Merci”, the Sixpack collection draws from inspirations that cross political borders, embrace impossible love and yet harbor deep feelings. Meaning “no thanks” in French, the translation of “Non Merci” can also be interpreted as “I’m over it.” For the project, the symbol of this mindset is a beautiful blonde model that exudes “Non Merci”, placing her on an untouchable pedestal as an object of desire. Her image is displayed across the collection’s footwear and apparel.
