Coconut Chai Tea

I was about to relax with some Zhena's Coconut Chai Tea from World Market when the usual scenario began playing out... I started photographing it instead. Clicking away behind the lens, I found myself ruminating over the (made from scratch) projects I'm so eager to share with everyone, that is, once all the particulars are ironed out. 
Between new drawings, writing about other artist's drawings, conceptualizing paintings & the medical qualms a wee bit cumbersome for this simple blog post, I received an incredible package from India. It took all of a minute to settle on using it as a momentary prop. With a distinct combination of burnt orange mud-wax emerging from the pale, hand-woven textile & the mess of postal stickers endorsing its long journey, it was almost too beautiful to open. Almost.

Working in an industrial neighborhood in Brooklyn has led to the development of the CINDER BLOCK collection." And the results are flawlessly executed. Not only does he incorporate an organic wearability through his architectural jewelry, but the fact that he does so with such an influential voice of his everyday surroundings, adds an extraordinary amount of intimacy that's hard to come by. Thank you, Max for my rad new cinder block necklace. I sorta refuse to tak…

The Leather Satchel

When Gail from The Leather Satchel Company contacted me with the amazing opportunity to choose a satchel of my choice to review, keep, and love forever I practically fell out of the chair. I'd been lusting after one of these gorgeous bags for the longest time, because while it may sound a bit unconventional, I thought it perfect for gallivanting about the sculpture park with my trusty writing supplies  swinging idly at my side. So like a springboard into the sea of opportunity, I leapt at the idea of writing about how much I adore the vintage aesthetic and sinuously detailed structure that creates an effortlessly downtown sophistication.
A family company since the late 1960s, The Leather Satchel Company strives for high-quality standards that are evident down to the stitch by their meticulously crafted leathers. What's even more amazing about these "quintessentially British" satchels is the assortment of available colors (dying over neon pink) and the 5-year artisan …
