I meant to post about this earlier, I got my Cheetah print from Ryan Berkley! Now I just gotta go out and get a frame for it! “After cataract surgery ten years ago, this cheetah realized that an eyepatch can be a real conversation starter with the ladies. His eye has long since healed but his social calendar remains quite full.” Can’t say enough about this stuff – make sure you swing by the Berkley Illustration Etsy page!
I noticed some new prints went up this month as well! Take a look at them below!
I never took a camera with me to Hawaii because I am an idiot a light packer – so I have been creepin’ on Facebook stealing photos from friends’ albums. The place really does live up to the hype. If I can figure out how to fully waterproof my Macbook I might move back to Maui and just live underwater. Someone told me they didn’t think that would be possible but I am pretty sure they are wrong. Alternate titles for this post: “Sayonara golden tan” and “Seasonal depression starts now”.
Back to work…
Back when I was blogging on Hypebeast I used to post live Beastie Boys concerts in mp3 every now and then. Since then I have recieved many requests from people to start doing so again. Today is your lucky day. First up is the Sydney Australia show from 1999. This bootleg is direct from soundboard I believe so the sound quality is A+.
Better be quick to grab this while it’s up and stay tuned for more, I have about 5 data discs full of concerts. The photo is courtesy of Maya Hayuk and has nothing to do with the concert but I love her work and this series of photos especially. Click “more” for the link.
I have never met William Lamson but I feel like we would really get along. He takes pictures and makes wonderful little videos, and really seems to enjoy what he does. He has had solo exhibitions all over the world and currently resides in NY. What I like about his work is that there is as much humor to it as there is beauty. Some of them made me laugh and others were surreal to the point they became almost meditative. William was kind enough to upload a few of them to youtube just so I could post about them!
This first video is called Tundra. There is something really beautiful about this piece. It’s so quiet and simple. It’s like haiku poetry for your eyes.
From 2004 to 2006 Riitta Ikonen mailed around 100 postcards to Margaret Huber from Japan, Spain, Finland, Russia, and England. “Hair, fish, a sachet of white powder, a piece of broken record etc. were sent to test the postal system. Only three cards never reached their destination.” This is another portfolio that deserves your full attention.
