Artist Profile: Audrey Louise Reynolds

audreylouisereynolds

Audrey Louise Reynolds studied painting, photography, and film, while working as a cook, and her interests in all those areas sort of meshed together as she started to hand dye fabrics. New York Times called her “the fashion world’s artisanal fabric dyer” and The Selby recently followed her around as she created some of her work. Watch the video below.

Paintings by Landon Metz. He shares a little story of the inspiration for the series:

“A few years ago I was in the elevator of a loft building somewhere on the west side with some people and we took it to the penthouse by accident and the doors opened to this giant apartment filled with nothing but the same painting of Michael Jackson over and over and over again.”

An Inspiring Visit to Dublin, Ireland

jameson-ireland_06

Last week I was invited out to Dublin, Ireland, by Jameson to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (aka drink lots of whiskey) and more importantly meet some of the local designers out there.

Thanks to Greg and Russell from This Greedy Pig for taking us around the city and introducing us to illustrator Dermot Flynn, as well as designers Ronan and Peter of me&him&you. Thank you also to Jarrod from The Social House, and Jenny from Google, for taking us out of the city to see a bit more of Ireland!

More photos from me and my friend Jennifer Latour below!

Music Video: DJ Snake & Lil Jon “Turn Down for What” Directed by DANIELS

liljon-turndownforwhat

My talented friends Dan Scheinert and Dan Kwan (director duo DANIELS) have just released an obscene masterpiece. It is over the top in the best way and a perfect fit for Dj Snake and Lil Jon’s song “Turn Down For What”.

Dan Kwan co-directs and stars in this video (both Daniels danced in that Pharrell video), and having partied with them at Kirsten Lepore’s house on Halloween I can tell you this video is pretty much a documentary, they dance like this in real life.

Enjoy the video in all its glory below. PS – I was on my way to Ireland when this video came out so I’m a little late on it (it’s been like a week, chill).
