Business cards make everything official. And the more America Psycho that shit looks, the better. I guess it just depends what you're selling!Thanks to some speciality printers in Greenpoint and a great creative agency ( High Tide NYC ), I've ended up with some beautifully crafted cards with gold foil stamping and edging. Quality is King. At least it should be.  

Who would have known 7 years ago when I started my blog to complain about assholes, I would end up on this post unveiling my new company cards. It's a funny feeling to know you legally  "own" something. That you are completely accountable and responsible for every failure or success of something. At this point I may have started out as an artist or a designer, but integrating becoming a business owner is the next challenge.  A passion for making shoes by hand more than six years ago that evolved to landing a (chance) corporate job to this is pretty much why living in New York City for this long has been ultimately worth it. Never get it twisted; living out in NYC thousands of miles from home for almost nine years never gets easier. But the choice to make things worthwhile has always been paramount.

I don't know where this beginning will take me but I know this is where I need to be and what I need to be doing. It's a blessing to wake up and know what you want to do. I thank the universe for that.


If you haven't seen 12 years a slave.. well then you haven't. Lupita Nyong'o's speech on Black Beauty.. and just beauty in general is another great reminder on what it means to be beautiful. Sometimes it's hard to separate the celebrity from their "causes" or their agendas. With Lupita being a virtual overnight Oscar nominee from her role in 12 years a slave, I think it's fair to say that given the sudden spotlight from relative obscurity, her speech is touching in the most genuine way possible. 

HUVRBOARDZ. A hoverboard would have done but I guess Back To The Future never predicted everything had to be spelled so funky these days.

Thanks to my dad for forwarding this to me. This dude is out in Bean town repping hard. With the realness.
