i recently met a girl w/ the raddest patch on her sweatshirt, and as i usually do, i stopped her and asked her to tell me about it. it was made by brooklyn based artist leslie martinez and her twin sister under the name the martinez design project. although no patches are left in their shop, nor the amazing bags (just look at the sold items, they're the best!), it didn't stop me from checking out leslie's AMAZING work. seriously, i was floored by her drawings. leslie has been gearing up for her thesis show which took place at cooper union on april 20th, now that the show is over she will be dedicating more time to her work and the martinez design project. she's one artist i am beyond excited to see more from.
