Magazine you always buy
Someone you admire
There are many people I admire. Many of my peers are artists or work within the arts and have strong determination and intense work ethics all motivated by what they love. I am constantly in awe of them and encourage by there actions and presence.
I guess if I had to choose someone not around me I'd say writer and poet Fernando Pessoa. He just kept writing bitterly wonderful texts. He was a bit of a loner, an intense observer and wrote under many heteronyms. Pessoa although while he was alive published a few books, he was a prolific writer and majority of his 10000's of pages of writings was discovered in a trunk when he passed.
I encourage anyone to pick up The Book of Disquiet. What a guy!
Doing absolutely nothing. All just sleeping. Sleep.
Gosh damn sleep is wonderful.
Sufjan Stevens & Teebs = MAGIC
Favorite place in the world
I had just come back from a brief trip to South Korea.
I have never been. I want to go back. Take me back.
...editing people's Cargo Collective...
Most precious object
A silver ring with a tiny diamond my grandfather handed
down to me when he passed.
Becoming represented by Artereal Gallery - Rhianna rocks. I love her.
Everyone should write artsy love letters to her.
