"My presence speaks volumes before I say a word."

Just some inspirations for the week.

Inspired by the latest trends and menswear pieces currently being launched, (Fashion Week) I find it imperative that we should pay respect to the craft. Back in November I discovered this film and although it has not been released for mass distribution, the trailer is truly captivating. As a lover of all things fashion, the importance of master tailors is at times under appreciated. Next time you get a custom suit, over-thank your tailor for his service. The sub text of the film says it all “Vanishing Craft”

Week # 2 of 2014 and I’ve found myself to be selfishly in-tune with Art; various types of course. No disrespect to the music, (I’m still heavily listening to the London Grammar album) but lately art is my stimulation, providing outlets for creativity and inspiration. So much that I found two old canvases in a dumpster and repainted them hoping to create pieces of work at some stage in year.
That being said, I discovered Etam Cru from the 2013 Richmond Mural Project which my homie Shane Pomajambo curated. Can’t get enough of the Moonshine piece these guys installed. The detail is impeccable and I find myself asking the same question “How the hell are the strawberries so perfect?”
This piece bleeds freshness! Hope I’ve added some inspiration to your work week.

Empire of the Sun - Ice on the Dune

Rhye - Woman

Reflecting on 2013, realized the efforts to update my blog…struggled. To end 2013 on a great note, I thought I would highlight one of my favorite songs of the year. Not only is Kings of Leon one the greatest bands of my generation but they are legendary…everyday. Super Soaker was an instant classic when those guitar riffs hit my ears. If this song isn’t in your playlist, do yourself a favor and change that immediately.

2014 Goal - Weekly Blog Update!

I’ve been overdue for a blog post. So here’s to getting back on track. 

Went to Church earlier this week on Edgewood. Cool concept, somewhat sacrilegious…but I’m no priest. However the case, it was all about #moments that night.
