Animation: California Inspires Mark Mothersbaugh

california-Mark-Mothersbaugh-

Really enjoying this series called, California Inspires Me, a collaboration between Google Play and California Sunday. A creative person is interviewed for each episode and then an animator creates visuals to go with the person’s voice. Last time I posted about this series it was Jack Black talking about growing up in California; this time it’s Mark Mothersbaugh animated by Barcelona-based studio, Manson. Watch the animation below.

Photographer Spotlight: Joyce Kim

We recently teamed up with Encinitas-based watch and accessories brand, Nixon, to spotlight a unique, California artist producing innovative work. We asked Los Angeles-based photographer Joyce Kim to capture some snapshots of her life that represent the Nixon theme “Wake Up And Live”. She channeled this mantra into her life and art, creating a shot-by-shot video to convey her own understanding of seizing the moment and living life to the fullest.

Joyce is part of a really talented crew of friends that are all on the cusp of big things in L.A. (you may recognize some of them in the video below). We thought it would be fun to skip the typical interview and just show you life through her eyes. Allow us to introduce, Joyce Kim.
