i usually try to avoid posting any album art. And frankly, because I feel as if it gets too complicated. overwhelming. at moments.

you might ask.

Well. because there is so00- many creative, exceptional, and brilliant album art out there now-a-days (and not to mention, old record album art....THAT's a whole different story, I stopped collecting record art because it became a space-issue in our place)

It is all so-super exciting to me. but at the same time, we all see repetitiveness and when that does happen that's when I get overwhelmed, but now giving more thought, I think I should be posting more since I do occasionally look at it and am always in awe when I do see those albums that I love to just grab and look at.

In relation, stylists (like me) tend to do that exact thing. they tend to not necessarily as the saying goes, "judge a book by it's cover", but more importantly, just pick it up as it is for the appealing and self-fulfilling aspect of it. and keep it. listen to it. read it. do whatever our heart desires to do with it.
More recently, Pitchfork wrote a great article on album art describing the musician's intention and the controversy of album art.
You know how we always think and want to be a million things when we grow up?
Well, one of those million careers would have to be this: An Album Art Specialist. Does that even exist? I would sure hope so. ...Art Theory of Album Art?

so. toast. to a new beginning. let's begin with some of my latest loves & their contributing artists:

1.) Four Tet. -Rounds. Album art by photographer, Jason Evans, who has worked on all of Four Tet's albums. His website kind of makes me dizzy.

2.) Wolf Parade. -Expo 86. An original image of a young Dante DeCaro and his two cousins.

3.) The National. -High Violet. Amazing sculpture art by Mark Fox. Check out some of his other pieces, you will be in shock how awesome this artist is.

4.) Sunset Rubdown. -Dragonslayer. Feather font...need I say more?




See what I mean? It's a continuous battle.

Never ending. But I can't stop, but loving it.


i've been kind of addicted to gq. no shame at all. it's great. recently, the style for men has been blowing my mind away. it's fantastic. like these slip-ons taken during fashion week of London. they aren't quite espadrilles, but the detail is impressive and the sole gives it a more of a classy look.
