New Release! No. 125: Sport Blue III Gas Mask

“Each mask I create reflects its own heroes and demons – because within each of us, and therefore as a society as a whole, we constantly search for our humanity between our hopes and fears.

The Freehand Files: No.84 Ewing 33 HI Gas Mask

Originally released August 1, 2014, the Ewing 33 HI Gas Mask was created for @Figgs8and9 of 8 & 9 Clothing.

One of the last shoes I camped out for, and one of the very few I’d probably camp for again. I’m consistantly asked if I feel any regret towards cutting up shoes, the answer is a resoundig no. How can I feel regret towards something that has brought so much good into my life? Through…
