For our latest creative project, Patrick Liberty had the vision to bring together iconic photographer Ricky Powell and famed street artist David Flores. Both artists are close friends and past collaborators. The concept was to meld together their disparate but complimentary artistic styles. Starting with an iconic bedrock of Ricky Powell portraits featuring luminaries in the arts, music and sports world, the photos were then adapted by David Flores in his signature stained glass style. The outcome is an innovative collection featuring creative illustration and photography expressed across multiple mediums including made in the USA skate decks, custom fit organic cotton t-shirts, as well as limited edition artist prints and Akomplice team favorite, the West Coast Mean Mug.
Be sure to follow the hilarious Ricky Powell @thelazyhustler and the nonstop muralist David Flores @davidfloresart on instagram.
Check out more photos and the entire collection after the jump.

We caught up with our homie Kirk Knight of Pro Era to chop it up about life, music, and his Late Knight Special Album. Kirk has been a strong Akomplice supporter from the first time he was introduced to the brand years back by our mutual friend and photographer Jessica Lehrman. After that, he was featured in our Beastcoast Magic Plant Lookbook. We saw a special talent in him early on and we are happy to see him blowing up now. Read on to get an inside look into the mind of one of the beast Coast Movement Leaders after the jump.
Here at Akomplice we love seeing people do it themselves. That’s how akomplice was created, with the mentality that we can do anything if we just went for it. This is our fam out in Wisconsin that really has that same mentality. Here’s a little production they made showing a late night skate session in the mall in La Crosse Wisconsin
Major props to Jason Blanchard, David Hoffmann, Christian Cockrum, James Munro, and Josh Kenworthy for putting this project together.
