The folks over at Hypebeast TV have been doing a wonderful job of creating some original video content, and this behind-the-scenes look at Andrew Groves’ new side-project Miscellaneous Adventures is a great example. We’ve been fans of Andrew forever now, he even did one of the very first desktop wallpapers for us, so it was rather exciting to see him being profiled in this way.
The idea behind Miscellaneous Adventures is to showcase some of the physical objects he creates, separated out from his illustration and design work. He creates simple objects like spoons, key toggles and drinking scoops out of locally sourced wood (from his backyard, essentially) and then decorates them with lovely colors and subtle patterns. My personal favorite is the key toggle, which I like because of the shape and the interplay between the leather and wood. Definitely worth taking a look at all the interesting things he’s creating, which you can see here.
