APC Denim Ocean Wash after 12 months of wear. Results to come.
I’ve never been a fan of iPhone cases, or any cases in general. I don’t like upsetting the form factor that the designers worked so hard to create. And I’ve always thought that dents, cuts and marks add character. Unless you plan on reselling the thing at the end of whatever contract you’re on I just don’t see the point.
Having had my iPhone just this week replaced due to a faulty camera, the ‘character’ I had created was gone, and I thought with only one year left maybe I should protect the back so it looks better when I plan to sell it. So I bought a Gelaskin skin because it maintains that delicious design while adding a bit of artistic flair. The sticker quality is quite thick and it allowed me a few tries to align it properly so don’t worry if you have shaky hands.
The hardest decision was choosing which design as the site features art from Audrey Kawasaki, Nanami Cowdroy and Stella Im Hultberg to name a few. I settled on the understated abstract colors of Melanie Mikecz and I’m pretty happy.

Issue zero of SRC783, a new collaborative magazine by fashion editor Christina Dietze and artist Nick Thomm is an inspired project. That’s all I really need to say about this 160 page book publishing some absurd artistic and alternative editorial photography and design.
Jacob Sadrak, Emma Mulholland, Chet Faker and Mike Perry are just some of the artists who lend their input in the inaugural edition. It will run quarterly and the editors state that it isn’t focused on seasonal trends but instead the art, style and personalities of the subjects.
Personally I find this book just at the right moment when I’m struggling with my creative craft. The urgency of my zeal is becoming apparent and surrounding myself with creative and inspirational material such as what’s offered in this book is what I need to be doing. For anyone with a love of editorial photography I highly recommend picking it up.
SRC783 is avaliable from Mag Nation in Melbourne, CBD or from their website for $15 plus $9.95 postage.
