Yesterday, we wrapped up our Gimme The Look contest, where we challenged you all to envision and illustrate a Notorious BIG FADER cover. A couple months back, we asked the same thing of Seymour Chwast, an art/illustration/design/everything hero of epic proportions. Few things have intimidated us more in our lives than going to his Greenwich Village studio to pick up the woodblock print that he hand-carved for FADER 73. He showed us how the cover print was made, some of his vintage work, and told us why he loves motorcycles but doesn't ride them. Watch the video of our visit for a bit of insight into the mind of a man who has dedicated his life to creating exactly the way he wants to create.
