Sabzi's "Ph? Life" Kickstarter Kicking Into High Gear

Sabzi, Blue Scholars' ever creative producer/foodie/fashion pioneer has a long-running side project called Townfolk, which is "a brand/label/something...a workshop to play around with experimental ideas." (Check out his mass of neighborhood-based productions.) Under this banner, he's recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, which aims to fund a new, ph?-centric art project, potentially including large-sized ph? ingredient prints, custom Townfolk chopsticks, stickers, and ph?-related buttons. He's already put together a highly enjoyable promo/tribute song/video (above), and the prototype images on the Kickstarter page look fantastic. Hungry for some novelty ph? gear (who isn't?)? Donate here.

Reppin That Ph? Life

Hello.

My name is Saba (and Alexei) and a few people call me Sabzi. I've been working in Seattle (sometimes NYC and LA) as a DJ and music producer for a little over a decade.

Along the way, I created a brand/label/something called TOWNFOLK as a workshop to play around with experimental ideas. What you're seeing here is our first full project.

Like many of you, my friends and I eat ph?. Hella.

During a conversation over lunch at the Ph? B?c one day, an idea came up for an iconic poster displaying the ingredients of this soup. One thing led to another and eventually this conversation evolved into a complete project involving some rapping, a music video, and a mini line of goods all revolving around contemporary ph? culture.

This Kickstarter was created to raise the funds required to manufacture some of the design work from this project in order to make it available so that you too can rep ph? life.

TOWNFOLK presents

PH? LIFE

We aim to produce

1) Two runs of premium quality offset prints with a spot-gloss varnish on silk cover paper for two different ph? poster designs,

2) illustrated 8-button set,

3) illustrated sticker sheet, and

4) custom chopsticks

If you're reppin this ph? life, then don't hesitate to pledge, plair.
