CINDY SHERMAN FOR SUPREME 

Cindy Sherman is an American artist born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey in 1954. Known for her cinematically composed self-portraits as invented characters, Sherman’s work explores the stereotypes of female iconography in popular culture and female identity in society. Though her work does not adhere to any particular aesthetic, it is unified in the common theme of the fictionalized portrayals of women through the lenses of mass media.

Supreme will release a series of two limited edition skateboard decks featuring original artwork by Cindy Sherman.

Available in-store NY, Brooklyn, LA, London, Paris and online November 9th.

Available in Japan on November 11th.

Picture Books Can Be a Starting Point for Diversity - NYTimes.com
Many of the frequently challenged books deal with diversity and are written by authors of color; we must pay attention to that. By Darragh Martin.

“I hope the children’s book industry continues to become an increasingly diverse space, with a cast of vibrant and varied characters. It is commendable that J.K. Rowling announced that Hogwarts was a safe space for L.B.G.T.Q. students, but it would be nice to see a more diverse cast of characters stroll the corridors of children’s literature in practice as well as theory. This process starts with picture books.”
