Cartoon Network News Release Verb Adventure Time

Cartoon Network News Release Verb Adventure Time

Let Cartoon Network take you on another exhilarating adventure with brand new episodes of Adventure Time!

An awesome CN party for your friends, Adventure Time Verb skateboards and prizes up for grabs.

Cartoon Network has announced that brand new episodes of the 5th season of pop culture sensation, Adventure Time – which follows two unlikely heroes in Finn, a quirky kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a friendly dog with a big heart – will be on South African television screens soon.

South Africans will be able to join the world’s most beloved human and dog pals, who are up for some more truly mathematical adventures across the Land of Ooo. Finn and Jake will be commencing their new adventures from Monday 15 September 2014 until Friday 31 October 2014. The show will air every Monday to Friday at 16h35 with repeats on weekends at 08h20 and 12h05 on Cartoon Network, DStv channel 301.

These two buddies, Finn and Jake, traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colourful inhabitants. From the mind of creator Pendleton Ward (Cartoon Network Studios, LA), Ooo is a land built for adventure. Teeming with imposing mountains, lush green plains, vibrant forests, endless prairies and winding rivers, the cities and towns are filled with bizarre characters in need of unique assistance. Whether it’s saving Princess Bubblegum, defeating zombie candy, mocking the “oxy-moronic” Ice King or skateboarding with BMO, for Finn & Jake it’s always Adventure Time.

“The strength of the Emmy Award winning Adventure Time franchise has always been our unwavering commitment to investing in engaging content that grows with our consumers. Adventure Time with its visuals, characters and engaging storylines marks another exciting chapter in the shows evolution and continuing success”, said Pierre Branco, Vice President Southern Europe and Africa for Turner Broadcasting System.

To kick-start the excitement before the launch date, Cartoon Network – in partnership with Verb and DStv – hosted an amazing Adventure Time party at the Johannesburg Zoo on Saturday 23 August 2014. To win a ticket to this fantastic event, fans had to enter a competition through the DStv website and lucky winners got a chance to experience the new season for the first time. There was also a special opportunity for kids to interact with a giant BMO and hidden cameras captured their gleeful faces.

All interactions with BMO built up a special party meter which set off streamers and balloons in true party style as soon as it reached the “It’s Party Time” level. Guests received a bunch of treats, merchandise and a photo with their favourite character before the party was over. Cartoon Network also hosted 40 kids from Reach for a Dream Foundation and fulfilled a special dream for one of the children who wanted to meet some of his favourite Cartoon Network characters. This brought smiles to all their little faces and they enjoyed having fun on their own exhilarating adventures.

For all of those fans who could not attend the Adventure Time party, the adventure is not over yet. All they need to do is visit the Adventure Time “It’s Party Time” microsite at www.cartoonnetworkafrica.com/partytime from 23 August 2014 where they can play the specially created Adventure Time game and fill in a competition form to stand a chance to win an exclusive party for themselves and their friends, including a viewing of one of the new episodes with Finn “in person”. Second prize will be a limited edition of Adventure Time skateboards designed by Verb available in-store from October, and third prize is a Cartoon Network goodie bag with great Adventure Time merchandise.

The show has already had great success both on TV and online with over 17 million Facebook fans, and in Q1 of 2014 the show was watched by an enormous 132 million kids globally. Adventure Time is also very active when it comes to gaming, with four new web games and six new applications launching during 2014. One of these applications is the newest collaboration between Cartoon Network and TwinSky Games, Time Travel which features original voiceovers from Finn and Jake now available on iOs, Android and Amazon.

NINJABREADBOY INTERVIEW

Ninjabreadboy

Who are you? What do you do? What is life? What is behind the name Ninjabreadboy?

I am an illustrator and aspiring artist based in Cape Town. I currently work as a freelance illustrator but did work in the advertising world for a while and decided to go freelance at the beginning of last year for obvious reasons. I don’t use any preferred mediums for the stuff that I do, I really just enjoy trying to make cool shit with whatever is available or required on certain projects. I’m all about putting my work onto whatever I can. The name is just a personal joke; I’ve always wanted to work under an alias, and it just stuck and felt right so I just went with it.

What first got you interested in art?

I’ve always been interested in art; since I learnt how to write my name as a child. I started skating when I was very young and all the visual aspects of skateboarding were the things I really found interesting; tattoos, board graphics, graffiti, clothing, were all things I really liked looking at in skate mags. When I was 13 I remember reading an article in Blunt magazine on graffiti and there was one pic in particular that really caught my eye. It was of Wealz 130 standing on a bridge with his hands in the air, above a piece he had painted. I cut that pic out and stuck it on the wall next to my bed and remember thinking “I want to do that one day.

Mind mentioning some of your favourite projects that you’ve worked on, and why?

Last year I got to tick some things of my list that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. I did a small range collab with 2BOP that I really enjoyed doing. We did a 5panel, tee, and bandana together and the response to it was really really good. Also I’ve been wanting to do a skateboard graphic since I started skating and I was super happy with how the board graphic came out that I did with Verb at the end of last year.

Ninjabreadboy x Verb

Where do you draw inspiration from?

I’m very inspired by Cape Town and my surroundings; the people, cultures, sub-cultures, and everything that goes along with it. I’ve also always been inspired by letterforms and various artforms that deal with letters. I’m always trying to find inspiration in different ways to keep my work fresh for myself. Lately I’ve really enjoyed looking at signage. Anything from old American funeral signage to more modern African street signage has all been really appealing to me lately.

You also delve into some other creative avenues e.g. tattooing and graffiti. What else do you get up to when you aren’t drawing?

When I’m not making something I’m normally skating. Lately I’ve also really enjoyed getting back into surfing, on weekends I try get to the beach as much as possible. I used to surf a lot in high school and only recently realized again how important it is for me. Skating and surfing are some of the only things that really help me to clear my mind.

Best and worst things about living in Cape Town?

I can’t think of any bad things to be honest. Maybe the City Council, and some ridiculous bylaws that have been implemented, that’s the only shit thing about Cape Town. And there are too many good things to mention. I really have mad love for this city.

NinjabreadboyFor iJusi #28

Got any exciting future projects you can talk about?

I’m busy with some really nice projects at the moment, one of which is some signage for a local photographer that I’m really enjoying. Also been working on some illustrated label designs. Also have some exhibitions that I’ve been producing some work for. Other than that there’s a few other things in the pipeline.

Your work is often quite dark in the way it references violence or substance abuse. A lot of it seems very Cape Town inspired. What draws you to that subject matter? Are you attempting to offer a commentary on certain things?

I’ve always been interested in quite dark subject matter. I don’t know why, it’s just kind of always been that way. I really enjoy making images that have a sense of humour but at the same time have a darker twist to them. I think this is a good way of getting people to think about what they looking at. Like I said, I’m very influenced by my surroundings and feel that there is so much interesting stuff going on around me that I don’t like looking too much at what illustrators or artist are imitating or representing outside of South Africa when there is so much cool shit here that has potential to become great subject matter. I think the stuff I draw is a mash up of what I see and experience in my surroundings, and because I’ve always been attracted to the “darker” things, those are the things that catch my attention in my surroundings.

Is there life after death?

I honestly don’t know, and to my knowledge no one on earth knows, and probably will never know, so no stress.

LOST/FOUND EXHIBITION PHOTO GALLERY

lost found Exhibition

The lost/found Exhibition took place at Revolution Woodstock last week Thursday. It was a huge success. Not only were there some incredible artworks exhibited, but it was also the launch of the Verb Artist Series decks by artists Daniel Ting Chong, Justin Southey, Hanno van Zyl, Jade Klara, Jaco Haasbroek and Gerhard Human. The Kraken Rum kept the social juices flowing, and Roastin’ Records kept everyone stoked with their DJing. Milkshed, the non-profit that a portion of proceeds from the exhibition will go to, were there as well, and displayed some beautiful furniture made from reclaimed wood; a children’s bicycle, a small set of table and chairs, a lamp, and some rad stationary holders for your desk. We also put out one of the new Verb DIY decks and let people draw on it. The exhibition was packed, art was appreciated and sold, and everyone had a good time.

Thanks so much to everyone who came to the exhibition opening last night! A special thanks to Simon and Candice for curating, The Kraken Rum, Roastin’ Records, Milkshed, the artists that exhibited their work, and the artists who collaborated with Verb for the Artists Series skateboard decks. We are really proud of the series.

The exhibition is still running for another week, so feel free to drop by anytime (when we’re open obviously) and browse the art.

JUSTIN SOUTHEY INTERVIEW

Justin Southey Day Dreamer

Justin Southey is an artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. He is also one of the artists who did a deck graphic for the new Verb Artists Series 2013 range, which will be here soon. We caught up with him to chat about his graphic and what went into it…

What made you decide to take on this project?

I have always been secretly envious of the fact that Bruce Mackay got to do one in your last release, so I was very stocked when Verb approached me to do a board of my own.

Name 1 thing you’ve lost and 1 thing you’ve found, worth mentioning.

I found a wife, and lost my spare time.

Tell us more about your artwork. Why did you decide to do what you did? What is the story behind it?

I happened to be overseas when I was asked to design a board, so it felt right to make a board about ocean adventures, the discovering of new lands and strange creatures, and of course the illusive search for hidden treasure.

You do understand that, through the execution of your artwork onto the bottom of a skateboard deck, most of the replicas of your artwork will be thrown around, and get scratched and broken in the street right? How does that make you feel?

Great, I do the occasional drop of street art, so I am used to people trashing, stealing, and adding to my artwork.

Doing a graphic to be applied onto a skateboard deck is essentially just creating an artwork for a different size and shape canvas than normal. What excites you about the idea that your artwork is going to feature on a deck as opposed to doing a regular print?

I love doing work on different mediums and for different applications, so I am stoked to get the opportunity to try doing it for a skateboard.

Name 5 verbs that describe your process when you were creating your graphic.

Think. Draw. Erase. Redraw. Save (& send).

Come see Justin’s deck first hand at the lost/found exhibition on 28 November…

Hanno van Zyl Interview

Hanno van Zyl

For The AssemblyFor The Assembly. Brush and Ink.

Hanno van Zyl is an artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. He is also one of the artists who did a deck graphic for the new Verb Artists Series 2013 range, which will be here soon. We caught up with him to chat about his graphic and what went into it…

What made you decide to take on this project?

I grew up skateboarding; I have always been surrounded by skateboarders and I have always been influenced by skate culture. I think it has helped me to understand what the value of counter culture is and instilled me with a more questioning nature. It has always been a personal goal to design my own board graphic.

Name 1 thing you’ve lost and 1 thing you’ve found, worth mentioning.

Hope.

Tell us more about your artwork. Why did you decide to do what you did? What is the story behind it?

I wanted to design something that specifically acknowledges the fact that it is on a skateboard. That would mean that it will get completely trashed after about two days of use. I wanted to take this into account and implicate the skater as part of the artwork. ‘Hot chicks’ were a stock-standard graphic option for skateboarding brands (think of the iconic Hook-ups brand) and was hugely popular when I was a teenage skater. I offer a slightly more honest and sinister look at this stylistic trademark and how it interacts with the idea of female objectification and the male gaze.

You do understand that, through the execution of your artwork onto the bottom of a skateboard deck, most of the replicas of your artwork will be thrown around, and get scratched and broken in the street right? How does that make you feel?

I tried to work that fact into the concept and made it an intrinsic part of the piece.

Doing a graphic to be applied onto a skateboard deck is essentially just creating an artwork for a different size and shape canvas than normal. What excites you about the idea that your artwork is going to feature on a deck as opposed to doing a regular print?

I don’t believe that a “normal canvas” exists. The medium is part of the message and I feel that every piece an artist does should be self-aware and critical of the space that it inhabits. The fact that I will essentially collaborate with a whole bunch of skaters to create unexpected new results is what excites me the most about this specific piece.

Name 5 verbs that describe your process when you were creating your graphic.

Search. Select. Interrogate. Adjust. Draw.

DANIEL TING CHONG INTERVIEW

Daniel Ting ChongNew York Mag Icons

Daniel Ting Chong is an artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. He is also one of the artists who did a deck graphic for the new Verb Artists Series 2013 range, which will be here soon. We caught up with him to chat about his graphic and what went into it…

What made you decide to take on this project?

Doing a skateboard graphic has always been a “holy grail” project for me. When I was a little kid, I loved looking at the Birdhouse and Blind skateboard graphics. The colours were always saturated and clean; it really inspired me when I was younger to test out styles and linework. Since then I’ve always wanted to do a skateboard graphic that was officially printed by a skate brand. So when I was asked by Verb to take this project on, I grabbed it with both hands.

Name 1 thing you’ve lost and 1 thing you’ve found, worth mentioning.

I lost this amazing Ninja Turtles watch that had nunchucks for clock hands. One thing I did find worth mentioning was a stack of old Letraset packs.

Tell us more about your artwork. Why did you decide to do what you did? What is the story behind it?

I initially started with a completely different design to the one that is printed. I sketched out an idea of a boy and girl hugging each other on the edge of a mountain cliff. The pose was meant to be very dramatic with the boy holding the girl with her legs curled up behind her. The twist was that in each of their hands they had a knife pierced into each others back. Dramatic right? I liked it because it had the basic idea of lost & found, but with a dark undermining layer. On the morning of the deadline, I decided to change my design completely. I didn’t connect with the characters anymore and just didn’t like it. I then had a more graphic approach of creating intricate twists and curls out of ribbons which represent intersecting pathways. When you have a glance at it, your eye follows certain paths but gets confused by overlapping sections. You almost have to stop, look and navigate where you are again.

You do understand that, through the execution of your artwork onto the bottom of a skateboard deck, most of the replicas of your artwork will be thrown around, and get scratched and broken in the street right? How does that make you feel?

I really like that idea. It’s probably the most embracing thing that can happen to a design, where something totally out of your control changes your design in a organic way. Most of us nowadays design on a computer or sketch something out the way we want it to stay, but I think it is great that something created in a framed purpose can be totally broken and given a tangible path. It’s so boring when work only lives on the Internet, but now it has a chance to never be finished in a sense and always evolving.

Doing a graphic to be applied onto a skateboard deck is essentially just creating an artwork for a different size and shape canvas than normal. What excites you about the idea that your artwork is going to feature on a deck as opposed to doing a regular print?

To reiterate some of my answers, I’ve always wanted to do a skateboard graphic and this is my first attempt so it’s always exciting and fun. More importantly, I’m excited that my artwork will be traveling the streets, kissing curbs, rails and spinning around a lot. I think it’s probably the most fun any of my artwork will go through.

Name 5 verbs that describe your process when you were creating your graphic.

Thinking. Stressed. Creating. Re-Thinking. Happy.

As a kid I once picked up R20 at a fair and was really happy about it, thinking that I now had R40 to spend, only to realise that I had lost my R20.

Tell us more about your artwork. Why did you decide to do what you did? What is the story behind it?

I was thinking about the word ‘nowhere’ and how, when broken into two, it becomes ‘now’ & ‘here’. So it represents both being lost and found. I then applied this to the old saying “I’m in the middle of nowhere” which, when stated, is both a declaration of being lost, but also establishes a specific location – if that makes any sense. I then just turned the ‘H’ into a character, seeing as he is literally in the middle of nowhere.

You do understand that, through the execution of your artwork onto the bottom of a skateboard deck, most of the replicas of your artwork will be thrown around, and get scratched and broken in the street right? How does that make you feel?

I don’t mind. If people want to keep the artwork in tact they can hang it on a wall. It is, after all, a functional object and there’s something great about the artwork changing as it gets used.

Doing a graphic to be applied onto a skateboard deck is essentially just creating an artwork for a different size and shape canvas than normal. What excites you about the idea that your artwork is going to feature on a deck as opposed to doing a regular print?

It lends itself well to being a flat surface to print on, but also has some slight curves and this makes it sculptural. It seems to become an art object, as apposed to just another print.

Name 5 verbs that describe your process when you were creating your graphic.

Think. Sketch. Trace. Colour. Save.

GERHARD HUMAN INTERVIEW

Gerhard Human Click Click Bang Bang

Gerhard Human is an artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. He is also one of the artists who did a deck graphic for the new Verb Artists Series 2013 range, which will be here soon. We caught up with him to chat about his graphic and what went into it…

What made you decide to take on this project?

Why not? Get my own personal deck AND exhibit with some rad people!

Name 1 thing you’ve lost and 1 thing you’ve found, worth mentioning.

I lost a Traser watch in Montagu 3 years ago. It was black and had orange bits on the numbers, in case if anyone finds it… I found R20 in my back pocket a while ago! That was great.

Tell us more about your artwork. Why did you decide to do what you did? What is the story behind it?

I wanted to do a design that you can spend time looking at; something that takes you away from the surroundings you’re used to and add a sense of adventure.

You do understand that, through the execution of your artwork onto the bottom of a skateboard deck, most of the replicas of your artwork will be thrown around, and get scratched and broken in the street right? How does that make you feel?

Well, nothing stays beautiful forever. That’s the nature of life. Things deteriorate and from that comes new ideas. There’s a Buddhist practice of crafting an intricate mandala out of coloured sand, which takes hours, even days to complete. After it’s finished they destroy it and start all over again. It’s supposed to teach you about the impermanence of material things… I guess in that same way letting go of precious material things is therapeutic.

Doing a graphic to be applied onto a skateboard deck is essentially just creating an artwork for a different size and shape canvas than normal. What excites you about the idea that your artwork is going to feature on a deck as opposed to doing a regular print?

The exciting thing is the audience it will be exposed to. Doing a painting that hangs in a gallery is great but is often only seen by upperclass people who’re in the habit of buying art. Whereas, a skateboard will be used by people like me. People who LIVE a creative life.

Name 5 verbs that describe your process when you were creating your graphic.

Explore. Trance. Capture. Fixate. Trust.

JADE KLARA INTERVIEW

Coral Girl - Jade Klara

Jade Klara is an artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. She is also one of the artists who did a deck graphic for the new Verb Artists Series 2013 range, which will be here soon. We caught up with her to chat about her graphic and what went into it…

What made you decide to take on this project?

I had a board when I was 8; an old 80’s shape with a bright pink mutant rat graphic. I was in love. I have always wanted to do a skate graphic.

Name 1 thing you’ve lost and 1 thing you’ve found, worth mentioning.

I once found a 5 leaf clover, but I was very young and bad at maths so you never know. I lose my brushes all the time but I find them holding my hair up.

Tell us more about your artwork. Why did you decide to do what you did? What is the story behind it?

When I thought of lost & found I thought of ancient treasure, of heaps of gold and rubies hiding in an undiscovered cave. I was then really intrigued by a genie’s lamp, but instead of a typical genie I wanted something more animalistic, so the wolf genie was born. I kept the scene quite dark and ghostly and then used metallic gold as a reference to lost treasure and magic.

You do understand that, through the execution of your artwork onto the bottom of a skateboard deck, most of the replicas of your artwork will be thrown around, and get scratched and broken in the street right? How does that make you feel?

I like that it has a lifespan. Ephemeral things are more poetic.

Doing a graphic to be applied onto a skateboard deck is essentially just creating an artwork for a different size and shape canvas than normal. What excites you about the idea that your artwork is going to feature on a deck as opposed to doing a regular print?

It’s great that this canvas has a purpose. It gets to move and break and see the world.

Name 5 verbs that describe your process when you were creating your graphic.

Growl, draw, make-a-wolf-face-for-reference, draw, exhale.

GO SKATE DAY SOUTH AFRICA

IMG_2312

On Saturday the 22nd of June, the Joburg skate fraternity had their turn to celebrate go skate day with an event at an empty factory in Commissioner Street, downtown Joburg. A chilly morning made for a slow start to the day, but gave the guys a chance to put finishing touches on a skate photography exhibition which included works from Dwayne, Lingo, Werner, Jonathan and Rudi. As the day warmed up, skaters poured in from Soweto, Pretoria, Jhb, Vereeniging, and even GVB and Dave made it all the way from Durban. By lunchtime there were at least 100 guys skating with just as many spectators. Samsung sponsored hotdogs for everyone at the event and after lunch it was time to get to the fun underway with the highest ollie, highest hippie jump and furthest ollie contest, all sponsored by Baseline. Jonathan won the hippie jump with a well over hip high jump and Stuart cleared over 3 meters to win the longest ollie contest. The product toss always makes for good spectator value and this event was no different thanks to donations from Volcom and Vans. The most popular of the obstacles for the day, was the wall ride sponsored by Verb, so we decided to run 2 events, the first was the highest wall ride which was won by Evan who impressed all by getting at least 2m above the top of the ramp and then coming in fakie. The second was a best trick contest on the wall ride, which was won by TK who went wall ride to flat. The final event for the day was the KFD box jam which was won by Mitchell with an impressive front blunt slide to backside flip out. The day was finished off with a performance by Jet Black Camaro. The best part of the day was getting all the inner city kids on boards. Many of these kids had never been on skateboard before and everyone was keen to give them a try and some helpful tips. Everyone was so taken by the enthusiasm of the kids that they donated any extra boards or hardgoods that they could. Verb donated 3 completes to a few of the inner city guys that showed the most potential. Special thanks to Lingo for organising an amazing event as well as the companies that contributed towards the day: Verb, KFD, Revolution, Baseline, Volcom, Vans, Samsung and to all the skaters who came out to make this a great day!
