Check out the final product of my custom Munny project in the video below!!! I think it looks great and had a lot of fun making this come to life! Munny was purchased from http://beanpottoiz.com and I used paints from http://solejunkie.com. I think I may be hooked!!!
For all of you that have followed us since day 1, you know how instrumental Sole Junkie has been to the Million Monkey Family!!! He has been a mentor to me and has done some artwork for our brand. His shoe art is some of the most amazing ART I have seen!!! His Premium Sneaker Paint Set includes the following(taken directly from solejunkie.com): Sole Junkie Leather Paints are brilliant in color and are ideal for sneakers, belts, purses, jackets, and any other smooth leather product and vinyl. If properly applied, will not peel, crack, or rub-off. It is the highest quality brand available, and recommended by the most respected custom shoe painters and artisans in the country. Sole Junkie Leather Paint is a water based acrylic, which allows for easy clean up. All of the colors can be custom mixed to achieve countless color combination’s. Airbrush artists can thin the paint with a bit of Airbrush medium to help achieve optimum flow. We strongly recommend preparing the leather with our finish remover. NO FINISHERS NEEDED!!! 5 Colors that will come in kit: Yellow, Red, Blue, Black and White The Kit also includes: Finish Remover, 2 paint brushes and wipes. Everything you need to start your first custom sneakers. *pics and info taken directly from solejunkie.com
Ever since I took possession of my girlfriend’s FLIP camera I have been on a filming spree. I know I have a story to tell with Million Monkey, but more important than that is the GREAT advice I can give to new brands. I wish I would have met people like Steven Cedre aka SoleJunkie, Ryan Johnson of Pur3ly Root3d Clothing, and Daniel James of QBS Graphics earlier! These guys all taught and shared knowledge with me, so I want to pass it on
A few years back I met this young kid, who worked at a bank and claimed he was a good DJ. As time went on we became good friends and I came to find out he was actually a very good DJ. He goes by the name of DJ Dnyce and represents the Black Gorilla DJs. Dnyce has supported both of my clothing lines Ethnology and now Million Monkey. We most recently met up with Dnyce after the Jamboree III Pool Party to catch up with him and find out what was new. MMC: Hey Dnyce, thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us! DN: no problem thanks for taking time to talk to me MMC: First and foremost, I have seen you all over the place lately, what’s your next project? DN: I have a few projects in the works like The Manhattan Project, Texas Flood Season II, R&B in This Club II, Jamboree pool party series, Front Street Magazine, and a few other projects that I cant discuss yet MMC: I did the very first Jamboree Pool Party with you a few years ago, and it has grown into a big event. What are your future plans for the Jamboree and why do you host them? DN: That very first Jamboree in 2008 was great LOL! Hopefully we can turn the Jamboree into
