The thing about creativity...

A friend just said to me, "artist are usually the most off people I know". At first, didn't know how to take that. But then I thought...hey, the most creative people I know...are...a little off. For the sake of this post, let's just say...people are gifted in a normal state...unbeknownst to regular folks (wink). And for an environment saturated with images that call for other upcoming artist to challenge and push the envelope, in order to get notice--- hell, it doesn't pay to be "normal". So here's to the gifted people in a normal state--unbeknownst to regular folks...push the envelope, make a statement....better yet, MAKE PEOPLE LOOK AND SAY...OMG...WTF :)

The Lost Boys

The teams latest photo shoot involved three men, for our piece inspired off of "The lord of the flies". If you haven't read it, saw it, then .....ugh, I guess you weren't part of the gifted and talented bunch in grade school :) I kid, I kid. Anywho, like always we look to work cohesively as a team to convey a themed shoot. This one, was right up there in terms of level of difficulty: rocks, weather, sewage, bugs, etc. But one thing was for sure, these guys DELIVERED!!.....

WHATSTHECOVER - ART-O-MATIC 2008

I went to Art-o-Matic 2008, in it's final month long weekend. If you never been, or had reservations of going because you were unsure of what to expect...you MISSED OUT! This was such an incredible experience, especially for someone like me, who continuously looks for inspiration. There were ten floors of ART ART ART...And I am not talking about that humdrum boring, sit pretty and smile type art. But more so, art that comes right outta the azz of some crazy creative folks. At the last weekends showcase, there was a presentation of Art in fashion--photographers, designers, models, etc. showcasing their collections for the public. I am not going to lie, I arrived a little late--but I HEARD IT WAS AMAZING (smile). But what I did see, were the music acts, dance acts, brazilian band act, FIRE show act, spoken word acts, etc.... Plus, the best thing about this...IS IT IS ABSOLUTELY FREE. Now, think about that the next time you're throwing $10-20 dollars to an event that doesn't even reach the levels of mental stimulization as this event does/did. Here are a couple of pics I snapped with my camera phone (sorry for the poor quality). But after a while, i put it away...and just enjoyed my visit.







I aint wanna a close-up of this one...they were NEKID MEN...FULL OUT, (soooo...landscape and pull out shot is good here :)
a piece that caught my eye...what do you think? Clearly after lookin thru my camera, i realized i took more pics of NEKID ppl...than art, HMMMMM (time's are hard, lol). Anywho, hope you enjoyed the post...and i'll keep you posted when it comes back to town.

PHOTOSHOOT: Evicted

The latest photo shoot by the P.I.C. team was entitled, Evicted. With all the foreclosures and whatnot going on, WHY NOT MAKE IT FASHIONABLE!!. Anywho, we decided to showcase a series of shots where the theme was...fashionable girls who were torn between the responsibilities of paying for their house AND staying fly. We used a run down house that came with its very own decoration: trash, rodents, ripped wallpaper, graffiti, etc. The shoot in itself was sooo much fun, we were laughing and posing from start to finish. Check the results below...

WHATSTHECOVER


I was invited last weekend, to go a launch party…A Christian Clothing Line Launch Party to be exact. The name, Andonai Branded Eternal is, “a fashion statement crafted to reach the ‘People of the Public’ via competitive high fashion that is driven by a spiritual message.” The location for this event was set at Mayorga Coffee Shop, in Washington, DC. I must admit, I was a little thrown by the choice of venue, especially given the subject matter of the line. However, my doubts were set aside as I walked in and heard the booming (Christian Rap…music), fashionista’s walking around with trendy bottoms and Jesus Symbol shirts on, Lights, Camera people, and a packed house. Very cool! Now, being caught off guard, I sauntered in there is just a polo shirt, comfy denim jeans, and some vintage brown dress boots. I was not READY…because clearly DC’s finest Christian Soldiers” were in the plizace tonight. OKAY—let’s talk about the clothes. As stated in their testimony, “conscious streetwear”. What exactly is that, well from what I observed were a simple color pallet, heavy use of white imaging, and the use of bold graffiti like words. They were eye-catching, and the models def. worked for their hourly rate—because I was buying! The only drawback for me, is that I would’ve liked to more pieces being presented, in different forms…wrist wear, socks, bags, etc., something more versatile than just t-shirts…giving you flexibility to couple with other pieces. I am not a big t-shirt guy, but I love accessories. I could see myself wearing a single button, black single breasted suit; with a BIG Jesus imprint on the socks dancing between some polished black cap toe dress shoes…in a word, “avantehauteNESS”. But sadly, that’s not an option-yet? So, final thoughts on Andonia…pretty good product, damn good message, and an excellent start to their future in the clothing industry.
