Discovered my new favorite shop in my own backyard of Seal Beach.
Vintage + skate + art = fabulousness

Cheap Monday, Obey, Brixton, Jeffrey Campbell...just a few brands you can find on I recommend clicking on the link only if you have several hours to devote to shopping and adding items to your cart, cuz I DID! One of the dangers of being bored and jetlagged...
I love that they have a vintage section, it's so hard to find interesting pieces at low prices. Love it!

Andras Bartos

While in Berlin we stumbled across a tiny little gallery with the work of Hungarian artist Andras Bartos... Totally cute and totally hilarious little characters. Check out the shop here and his personal site here

So I'm off on a market trip for work tomorrow, hitting Rome, Copenhagen and Berlin all in 8 days! I'm so excited because I've never been to Italy before and I'm sooo looking forward to the architecture, food and SHOPPING. I'm sure there will be no lack of inspiration to bring back for FA11 season...and perhaps a few Italian designer additions to my personal wardrobe :-)

Ali Alisir

I came across artist Ali Alisir from Istanbul who does fashion photography in Italy and Turkey. His amazing photoshop work is evident below...

painting collaboration :: part 1

So I meant to document the various stages of this project, but got carried away before I could bust the camera out. I'm about 3/4 of the way through, and have mixed feelings about the result. Originally our intentions were to take Taryn's photos as a starting point and have it show through in my final painting...unfortunately our first attempt pretty much obliterated any sign that there actually was any photography underneath all of this. Oh well live and learn! I'm excited for collab #2, and I think for my first stab back at painting (in like a year) I'm relatively pleased. Not my usual palette, either, which is kinda exciting....
Hope to finish up in the next few then!

daily dose of inspiration

embarked on a new project today, collab-style and thoroughly rough around the edges, but the potential is totally there. to get the creative juices flowing I turned to some of my "comfort artists"...
audrey kawasaki - raw, beautiful, ethereal
egon schiele - edgy, provocative and controversial

i love the way the figures float on the page as the focal point and are emphasized by heavy outlines...also totally didn't mean this but they both are almost uncomfortably erotic (as I was image searching there were a few I had to *ahem* leave out)
ahh gotta love controversy!

Going through some old art i found these little treasures... the two paintings are from college and the skate deck was done last year. Embarassing but at least proof that yes, I do actually paint. More to come later (hopefully)
