“Photographic Portraits of Famous Artists’ Paint Palettes” taken by Matthias Schaller.
from top to bottom:
Pablo Picasso/ Henri Matisse
Vincent Van Gogh
Eugene Declacroix/ Georges Seurat
Claude Monet/ Edouard Manet
This is so interesting to me because you can slightly see their personalities and painting styles through their palettes. Some insanely messy, some neatly organized with little dabs of paint. Some only used dark color schemes (Degas) and some used nature and ocean colors (Chagall). Makes me wish I could meet them all in person :)
The idea to ask musician Annie Clark (more commonly known by her stage name, St. Vincent) to be a part of our ad campaign had been discussed long before the Fall 2016 season began. It was Katie Grand who originally brought Annie to my attention and suggested we consider extending an invitation to join this campaign.
I was really taken by comments Annie made in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine where she described queerness as a transcendence of sexuality and as a “banner” for being “other.” It was thoughtful, relevant and poignant. There’s a certain maturity that’s inherent in Annie that transcends her age and while her music is a direct reflection of her intellectual curiosities and musical prowess, it was when I had the privilege of meeting Annie in person that I experienced her magnetism. She operates with such genuine grace, poise and sincerity.
I am in complete awe of the beauty of this photograph by David Sims for our Fall 2016 ad campaign. It so perfectly captures the inherent contemplativeness of Annie, her humility and mystery.
Last night’s new episode of SpongeBob Squarepants was “Food Con Castaways.” (½)
It’s possible that I’ve said this numerous times before but this was one of my favorite episodes to work on! So much opportunity for acting and such a fun story.
Although what was particularly special to me about this episode was that our supervising executives (Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller) were kind enough to allow me to play a quick little Bill & Ted-esque air guitar riff. I know I shouldn’t brag about something that’s only 2 seconds long but it’s a dream come true for me to have something I played broadcasted on my favorite childhood TV show alongside my own drawings!…I am eternally grateful for that opportunity.
