My Summer has been extremely full. Among the weddings I am booking with Sage & Swan, preparing for the installation Tiffany and I are installing at Burning Man, and trying to fit in healing sessions I said yes when the the Parliament gallery in York asked me to do a show on tattoos. In the true state of YES I worked my ass of in the time that I had to make that happen. I wish I was better at reflecting on my process and sharing it because there was so much beauty in making the show real and the body of work that is forming as a result of it. It is hanging now until the end of August. If you are interested in the bodies progress go check it out.
One of my current goals is to get better at making this blog a consistent and honest place. I would like to actually keep track of what is happening for me. There are so many thoughts and processes occurring for me all of the time and I hope to be able to witness and reflect on them here...for whatever or whoever it will serve. To be honest, I don't even know if people look at blogs so maybe it will be for me alone, and well, that will be totally fine too. I need a place to organize myself.
So, the Summer Look book was super late as a result of poor time management. I have a tendency to get lost in chaos. I will say yes to a million things at once and do it with all of my heart but without any real organization in the process. It can be really frustrating and I recognize it as something I must embrace about myself and also refine as to prevent future stress. I am grateful for graceful collaborators and those that understand what it means to be both an artist and a boss ass bitch. Every day, I am getting better at the game. YOGA HELPS.
I am really happy with the way this look book came together as there was a last minute model cancellation and it changed the direction, totally. These two came through in a flash. A lot of the jewelry in these looks was provided by Hell Hound Jewelry and if you aren't currently following the cool shit that she is doing, I suggest you check it out. All of the clothing was provided by the amazing vendors of Redeux Market in York. One of the most amazing collections of vintage items around. I am also so grateful for Missy Jones, who owns the magical goats featured in this look book and granted us access to this incredible location. If you are looking for a designer that has her shit together and knows how to run it, you just found her. If you want to see the rest of the looks or the goats in this lookbook , check out Redeux's blog!
Anyway, thank you for looking and like I said, here is to hoping that I get better at being consistent here..and well, everywhere! I am really practicing. xoxoxo
