Everyday I am growing closer and more in love with me. This love affair with my being is important, fruitful, and fulfilling. I am proud of where I am and excited about where I am headed. I have so much inspiration around me and all I can do is just sit and process it all. In my free time, my friends and I create and capture dopeness. Enjoy these recent shots and check out the music video of the shoot by my talented friend Ike Slimster.

Digitally Assembled Paintings by Russ Mills
Abstract, Gothic and full of emotion, Russ Mills’ artwork is absolutely stunning. A fashion illustrator and graphic designer, Mills is purely fascinated with the human form, particularly the face as it can be seen in his latest portfolio, ‘Recent Excursions.’

Photographer’s Girlfriend Continues to Lead Him Around the World - Murad Osmann
Like so many creative projects, Follow me / #followmeto began rather serendipitously. Photographer Murad Osmann and his partner Nataly Zakharova are passionate travellers but Nataly was growing frustrated with Murad always being preoccupied with his camera wherever they went. She literally resorted to dragging him by hand from place to place to keep them moving.
Soundsuits’ of Artist & Fashion Designer Nick Cave
"Nick Cave (born 1959 in central Missouri, USA) is an American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist. He is best known for his Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly."
“Cave’s first Soundsuit was made of twigs. Other typical materials include dyed human hair, sisal, plastic buttons, beads, sequins, and feathers. His work is a crazy mix of media—these bunny suits are made of human hair, and others are montages of vintage finds, beads, buttons and old style needle crafts like crocheting and macrame. The finished pieces bear some resemblance to African ceremonial costumes and masks. His suits are presented for public viewing as static sculptures, but also through live performance, video, and photograph
I love his references to so many different cultures and crafts in these pieces.

Realistic Portraits Ironed And Folded From Tulle Fabric by Benjamin Shine
British artist Benjamin Shine creates large stunning portraits from a rather unusual material – tulle.
The artist carefully irons and folds the fabric, pleating it into amazing pictures, ranging from portraits of iconic stars to beautiful abstractions. The works are entirely single-coloured, but Shine’s precise technique helps him create multiple layers and shades that turn his tulles into vivid portraits with rich texture and depth.
