Artist Crush // Liesl Pfeffer

Currently crushing hard on Liesl Pfeffer‘s Garden Study series for a multitude of reasons, the first being that she actually uses the scientific name for each!!! Then you get to the art. Liesl has completely mastered the skill of complex minimalism. Her shapes are simplified while the textures of the images she uses in her collages […]

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. // CELEBRATING THE MAN WHO HAD A DREAM

May we all take a moment today to honor and appreciate a brilliant mind that believed in justice and equality above all. As a society, we still have a long way to go to abolish discrimination based on the fear of the other, but thanks in much part to Martin Luther King Jr., we are […]

ISSUE 7 // Artist Sarah Sitkin

Issue 7 is very close to being finished for you (and for us). Sarah Sitkin will be featured as one of the many amazing artists we have to share with you.

If this isn’t a movie, then please explain why you are sitting on the plush blue couch in our room at the Hampton Inn in Oxnard of all places quietly playing your guitar and singing “Be My Baby” while I lay face down on the lumpy white comforter on the bed (at least one of […]
