During college I spent part of my time as a not-very-good intern at The Director’s Bureau. Despite my efforts to the contrary, they managed to create some of the coolest music videos/commercials of the last decade for artists like The Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age and others. Now home-grown talent like Cayce Cole, Mike Mills, Geoff McFetridge and non-alumni like Will Oldham and Dave Eggers are coming together for a slew of cool, new projects.
One of the highlights of my Wednesdays-during-spring-semester internship days involved cataloguing press coverage for Geoff McFetridge and learning his work by being surrounded by it. At the time this was truly inspirational stuff for a 20-year-old. So when I saw that the artiste extraordinaire was launching his own wallpaper line, Pottok, I knew that I’d have to give the man a little bit of blog love so that the 2008 version of me could fulfill his destiny and bring the circle to completion. Seriously though, McFetridge’s signature playfulness shines in these prints and anyone would love to have them brightening up their home.
But that ain’t all that the Director’s Bureau is cookin’ up. According to their website:
“TDB Executive Producer Cayce Cole, Directors Geoff McFetridge and Mike Mills will be exhibiting work at “Thank You”, the one-year anniversary show at Family Bookstore at 8PM on February 28. Other artists participating in the show are Will Oldham, Dave Eggers, Paper Rad, Ian Svenonius, Trinie Dalton and Cherly Dunn among many more.“
