Rp from @wild_moon who were one of the winners of the 2014 ArtReach Pitch Contest!!” CREW GO SO HAWD #wildmoonjewelry #winning#toronto #youthartspitch2014”
@geinwong & I were so honored to have our artists wear the incredible new collection for our photoshoot and I am so honored to wear this art. And as someone with roots in Dominica & #Trinidad, I love the history and power that is embedded in each piece. Congrats to the whole team! #supportlocalart #islandtings

I like the idea of sharing an image of what I’m currently (or recently) working on. And specifically, on a Sunday. It’s the first day of the week (in a sense, a new beginning). A new vision of what my life is/can be/will be…
My first try with doing a linocut in my printmaking class. I will do my first inked print when I get back from Spring Break. These stairs are from a photo that I took of a hotel in Monterey, CA on Cannery Row right on the beach.

Sidewalk Art and Local Shops

I read this Did you Know fact on instagram the other day:

   “If each of us spent $100 a year on local businesses instead of chain stores, it would put an extra $3 million a year into our economy, not only that but it would create thousands more jobs every year.”

I have been shopping at local shops for the past two weeks, and I have loved every single one of them and the creative items they have to offer.

This is a blurred image of a cute and large dressing room at a local boutique and spa called The Beauty Spot. 

I purchased these cards from Rifle Paper and Co. I’m excited to send these out.

I also didn’t have to look too hard to find a great annual sidewalk art festival going on.

I was very impressed that this was a live statue.

These reminded me of my time at the Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building.

This was my favorite artwork at the festival.  If you look carefully, you can see newspaper articles.

I hope you find a local shop and/or art festival that you fall in love with.

The production of this album is sublime, the lyrical delivery is arrogant and humble at the same time. From the very start with the first track— “The Beginning” (produced by Jacob Levan), the angelic harmony is dreamy and memorizing as if you’re entering a sonic journey;

“I only f*ck with common sense like Badu, so if it don’t make change it don’t make sense/cents, so in that same comma it all make sense. Bow your head talking to a Prince…”

The double entendre in that quatrain is sleek, the simile and metaphor dances together effortless and the fact that @StidePrince used that “comma” reference shows that he’s dedicated to the craft of poetry/rap. The Incorporating of poetic/grammatical device(s) in a verse reminded me of the @KendrickLamar triplet in Poetic Justice:

“Every time I write these words they become a taboo
Making sure my punctuation curve, every letter is true
Living my life in the margin and that metaphor was proof…”

“The Journey Continues” is an album that you have to listen to a few times over to fully digest the word play and the reason for.
As a fellow lyricist/poet I can appreciate this album for it’s dedication to the subtle intricacies of the craft,
as a lover of music I can appreciate the musical production, and as a young Black Southern male who’s trying climb a latter and stay true to self in these days in time, I can appreciate the overall tenacity and honesty.

The Journey Continues is quality work, I wouldn’t fuck with it if it wasn’t…

Maybe you didn’t know, but Kylie (@poodle_monkey) has an obsession with snails. This is just one of her 4 snail paintings we have in the shop. All paintings in the shop are by the artists of L.A.T. and are for sale…if you’re wondering. #supportlocalart #vancouverartist #buyart #vancouverart #supportlocalvancouver #gastownart #gastown #Vancouver
