Awhile back a family friend and her sisters decided they wanted to publish a book about dogs. They opened an account on Kickstarter and soon after got the funds to create their book. I got the final product in the mail the other day and I’m happy to see the amazing work they did! Keep in mind, this was a side project for them. They continued with their full time jobs, took care of their children and worked on this book. It’s a fictional book with stories of the canine companions of famous people throughout history. The dogs are featured in clothes in relation to their owners.
Congratulations to the Au sisters!
If you know me or have read my blog in the past you would know that I’m a fan of JGL. Earlier this year my friend sent me a link for a show that was happening in SF that he was going to be at. That was the first time I heard of hitRECord. If you haven’t heard of JGL’s production company, hitRECord, you’re missing out. It brings together a pool of creativity from writers, photographers, artists, etc and helps collaborate the different ideas. For example, if a writer wrote a short story and posted it on the website, an artist can take the story and make illustrations to it. If any of the productions make money, the money gets split 50/50, half to hitRECord and half to the artists that contributed to that production. Aside from that, it’s a great way to get your projects out there. They also host live shows that include poets, story readings, performances, and more. I’d say it’s a great community for creativity.
Btw, I want the Tiny Book of Tiny Stories. If you’re wondering what it is, it’s a tiny book, with tiny stories. JGL makes me want to buy it (*swoooon*). Haha Jk, well…half truth. Seems like a great book for a stalking stuffer or Secret Santa. Maybe it’ll be on my list this year. That’s if I don’t buy it first.
This past weekend I made a trip down to LA for Tello’s graduation. He graduated from Otis College of Art and Design. Friday was the senior showcase and it was AMAZING. Each floor had different things from concept art to product design and motion graphics. Tello does motion graphics and had his work on display. His video reel was awesome.
Check out his video reel on his website. HELLOTELLO.COM
The next day was his grad.
We had his graduation lunch at The Grove where we hit up Pampas Grill…DELICIOUS. It was my first time @ Pinkberry! It was pretty damn good and probably the best froyo I’ve ever had.
I heard R.Patz was in LA this past weekend! If only I ran into him. Lol My trip to LA was too short. I never want to come home when I’m down there. Until next time LA!
Congrats again Tello!
I’ve been living in my apartment for about 5 months and I still haven’t completely settled in. I have a corner full of shoe boxes and a big bin full of sweaters and sweatshirts. So I finally made an Ikea run and got a new dresser. Heeze came with me so he could help me lift the boxes. Haha
After we stopped by Ikea we headed to Oakland to visit our friend Evan @ the Adapt Clothing office.
