yah so i haven’t really had so much energy to blahg these last couple of days, what with the blizzards and my web series being delayed and all the hullabaloo over our not-so-new president and whatnot. plus on top of that i took this job re-designing and building Gusto Ristorante’s new website, which i had to complete in like a day and a half.
but i think it looks pretty dope if i do say so myself.

# 14 | 2007 | 16″ x 14″ | oil pastel and acrylic paint on DKNY packaging
Neomi | 2007 | 10″ x 8′ | oil pastel and acrylic paint on Jo Malone packaging
i sold this one to a fellow artist, those are the ones that make me the happiest. he said he had to have it cuz his girlfriend’s body “is exactly like that” and on top of that she’s a huuuge fan of Jo Malone’s Gardenia. then later he came back and invited me to his paintings exhibit in SoHo, and i actually got to meet his girlfriend, she was very sweet. his artwork was neat, it was all big gigantic “paintings” that were actually not paintings at all, but massive sheets of some kind of metal that had undergone some sort of manipulated oxidation / rusting technique. they were beautiful. and super expensive. ugh, i can’t remember his name.

i sold this one (and another just like it) to a gallerist from Paris. i wonder if she kept them or sold them for like a profit or something.
she was nice. she told me i should give up fashion and concentrate on fine art. ha ha ha ahaa can you imagine. oh well, i used to think the creative field was particularly heinous, but at this point i don’t think there’s a single occupation in the world that isn’t tainted by some kind of crazy politics or exploitation. so now i don’t feel that regretful anymore about not having gone to med school.
