One of the hottest items at the NYCC this year were the DIY Water Towers, Lifeguard Towers and Billboards made by Boundless Brooklyn. There were a few booths at the event where artist displayed their artwork on the DIY models. WE think these are so cool and it’s a much safer and more profitable way to get your art out there instead of, lets say…tagging a real water tower 😉
So more coll things about the Boundless Brooklyn products is all their packaging is made in NYC from chipboard and they use 100% recycled material. But what’s really cool is they come complete with everything you need meaning you don’t need to use any scissors or extra glue……NICE!!!
About Boundless Brooklyn
“Boundless Brooklyn started with a simple idea: to create a DIY water tower model kit that would be fast and easy to assemble. When our first kit debuted in December 2013, we could never have imagined how far that little one would take us.”

Young Heroes: Unlimited “Black Lightning” Illustration
Super talented artist/illustrator Marcus Williams is non stop with his creative pieces. In the middle of his busy schedule he managed to craft this awesome illustration of a young Black Lightning for his Young Heroes Unlimited series. He did this one in celebration of the new Black Lightning TV series which recently premiered on the CW Network
Young Heroes Unlimited was created by Marcus as a way to showcase “strong young melanated heroes” In a world where representation of them is non-existent. This particular Young Hero is one of those rare occasions where they actually are showcasing one of the few older existing melanated hero 😉 .
Marcus’s work on this Young Heroes: Unlimited “Black Lightning” is ridiculously awesome and we can’t wait to see more from this series.
