Look what just came in the mail. I can’t contain my excitement! Going to be sharing a lot of beautiful MJ pictures.


“Photographer Todd Gray worked with Michael Jackson for several years before Michael requested that he become his personal photographer, a relationship that would encompass Michael’s performances with the Jackson’s through the release of his smash solo albums Off The Wall and Thriller.

This collection of unseen, intimate, and joyful pictures of Michael taken over a span of 10 years reveal him at home, with his family and fans, in career-making performances, and on the Beat It video shoot. A young black man not much older than Jackson at the time they met, Gray brings unique insight to his time with Michael, contributing stories and context to the images, and presenting a rare, intimate portrait of Michael at a creative peak as he grew from a brilliantly talented young man to a pop icon.”

On The Wall: Alexandra Cervantes

Take one look at Alex’s art and you’ll feel as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole to Wonderland. This Southern Californian babe attends art school in San Francisco, and her thoughts and dreams are clearly depicted in her art. Her style is equally captivating: a mix of 80’s and 90’s (think 16 Candles, Bowie, and Clueless) with hair that seems to change with her mood from bright colors to faint pastels. This gal’s awesome style and wicked cool paintings definitely make her a presence on your Tumblr dashboard.
