Doktor A's H.R. Giger-inspired Glasses

Here’s an awesome blast from the past. It seems that last month at DesignerCon, Doktor A got to talking about H.R. Giger with Shinji Nakako (owner of Tomenosuke Gallery in Japan and producer of this excellent exhibition). Flash forward to now and Doktor A has gifted Shinji-san a pair of his own hand-crafted, spectacular (adjective and noun) safety pin glasses inspired by Giger’s late 70s Illuminatus II painting. (And yes, that IS a young Dok A modeling the specs above right!)

I haven’t yet personally connected with Giger’s art, but my buddy Skinner tells me that Giger (one of his favorite artists) and I share a predisposition for long periods of solitude with paper and pen. In addition, I’ll always blog exceptional eyewear (for example…). Dok A: If you think these can accommodate my Semitic nose, I can rock these!

Humphrey Mooncalfs by Doktor A

While parsing the Tomenosuke blog, I noticed a lovely, verdant mosaic blur. Looks like Humphrey Mooncalf is going green! Somebody give me a head’s up when this is available! NICE.
