Funny. Beautiful. Talented.
She is an illustrator and fashion photgrapher.
You can see her work here garancedore.fr/en
And you can also read her funny stories.
I would loooove to have my portrait done by Garance but thats a total long shot - I can dream tho!!!
While I have yet to have the privilege of seeing Kanye live I always enjoy his performances and admire his ability to put on a show. The energy and artistic direction always leave a lasting impression on me. He knows how to effectively manipulate your senses so that you are completely engaged in him and nothing else. He's a visionary....who else starts a song with "Close ur eyes and imagine, feel the magic, Vegas on acid seen thru Yves Saint Laurent glasses" (That gets me every fkn time!)Bold, clean, dynamic, convicted are all words I would use to express what I see when he gets on the stage. I have to say I also love how these pics look like fashion editorials - all the subtle elements layered perfectly. Sure he gets a little full of himself sometimes, "...I love it tho!" Lol

Im obsessed with colored hair!!! =)
Turq is one of my favorite colors for summer. Its cooling on a steamy day, its sexy against bronzed skin, and its absolutely eye catching. I especially love it paired with orange, coral, or hot pink.
Strange Wilderness was really really funny - you should definitely check it out!!
Above anything I find Lady Gaga undeniably intresting and talented. Am I pumping "Born This Way" while riding a shimmering unicorn, beating my chest like Celine Dion, and crying happy tears during a sunset? No.
This kinda stuff - this is just ridiculous and unoriginal.
And when I get home today Im gonna try it Lmao. =) HAPPY MONDAY!!

I'm obviously having a moment with abstract expressionism. And maybe its because I'm looking for an awesome piece of art for my living room. Or simply because I am a fan of color and one of the most beautiful aspects of street art and fine art alike can be color.
JMR is an artist whose work I've seen on a regular basis on Johnson Ave in the Williamsburg/Bushwick section of Brooklyn for a while now. I mostly passed his mural in a car so I could never actually make a signature out but I knew that if I ever bought a piece of artwork I would love a piece by THAT artist. After passing the mural on Father's Day I made is a point to try to make out any signature if any at all and find out WHHHOOOO DID THIS!?!?!. Mission accomplished!
Here is a quick bio from JMR's tumblr, jmrizzi.tumblr.com
The Artwork of JMR–
JM Rizzi, or better known as JMR, has adapted a unique mixture of neo-abstract expressionism with hints of contemporary pop to create a style all is own. Originally hailing from Brooklyn, New York, JMR has grown up with the influences of street art and the established art world constantly around him. Through his own individual, hybrid street style, he has dedicated himself to helping art fit into the outside world.
