Drawings by Van Neistat

Here at The Standard, Hollywood we love a good artist (maybe even more so when they’re an East Coast transplant making their way in the City of Angels). Enter Van Neistat, one-part of the legendary NY art duo, The Neistat Brothers. On Saturday night we spotted him showing support for Ryan McGinness at our poolside Drawing Salon and felt compelled to give him a special shout-out after he dedicated this illustration to us and handed it over as he left the building at the end of the night. Grazie Mille Van, we love you longtime buddy!!

Mind Games, by Casey Neistat

Mind Games - directed by Casey Neistat from Nike Sportswear on Vimeo.

Casey Neistat is a runner. He’s also a filmmaker. But he’s not the type that went to film school. He’s more the type of guy that just bought a camera and iMac and figured it out. This little piece is a creative short film that Casey created over a few weeks as he trained for the New York Marathon. Casey slapped his alarm clock every morning, booted up his Nike sneakers, and pounded the pavement with a video camera while facing the demons that aimed to distract his mission. After 3 weeks of documenting, and scoring with his friend Jordan Galland, Mind Games was birthed. 

Check out Casey and his brother’s video on our StandART Channel too and on HBO with his show, The Neistat Brothers.
