Staying party

Our buddy, Pascale, was supposed to move back to Barcelona this week and had planned a going away party. Then she decided BK is getting under her skin and since we all still wanted a reason to party at Smooch with DJs Jtram, Leb Laze and Epstein, the party was renamed to a staying party and we got going. 

Thursday night drinking, catching up with neighborhood buddies and animal petting is always a winner in my book.



Life beckons and im going to give it my undivided.

I'll also be taking a hiatus from Courtesy Of for a while......i know i know - you'll be just fine.



Kareem invited me to speak about custom/handmade typography in his graphic design class @ PRATT Institute.

Damn, did i fit 4 of my favorite things into a single sentence?

Oroma Therapy

The other night we got a visit from Oroma. She just got back from West Africa and came through to chill for a meal, technical mac support, and creative political banter.
Oroma's the brain [ she'll completely deny this fact, though ] of POP'AFRICANA:

POP'AFRICANA is the pioneering voice redirecting continental thinking and global opinion of the African. A robust and educative guide, re-introducing, re-defining and inspiring all aspects of Art Africano. Serving as more than a cultural report, our all-inclusive perspective aims to educate the globe on African ideas of beauty and style.


Below are some grabs from the Introductory Issue:
Oh yeah - and she's a great photographer & stylist. Below's a sneak peek of the upcoming issue [ i designed the logo ]:
And check out her heavy blog [ Oroma's Therapy ].
