Cool Gifts|Young in the Mountains

young in the mountains

With the holidays approaching, we thought it would be cool to celebrate some cool people who make cool things, that would make, duh, really cool gifts. Nothing like handmade, artist crafted products! Mariele Ivy, daughter of a wooden boat builder, was born in the mountains of western Montana. She spent her early life exploring the rivers and woods and creating art based on her beautiful … [Read more...]

Nothing like a good ritual animal murder before dinner? Amarite? All kidding aside, these photorealistic paintings of bullfighters by French painter Christian Gaillard are exquisite, aren't they?

The material, location and size are set but other than that they work intuitively. Anyone of … [Read more...]

The last thing I ever want to do is talk about Kim Kardashian's ass. Well, that's a lie, I have a secret obsession with plastic surgery before and afters. I spend an embarrassing amount of time googling Lindsey Lohan, the entire Kardashian clan, and most recently Renee Zelwegger. A guilty love of the low brow, for sure. But Kim certainly broke the internet this week with her shoot for Paper … [Read more...]

Tim Swallow | Nights Of Our Lives.

The_Nights_of_Our_Lives_-TSP009

So begins my new obsession with Australian photographer Tim Swallow. Photography is not just his job, it's his life. His “Peter Pan Syndrome” fuels his ongoing excitement for anything involving surfing, skating and music. His photos are both refined and filled with spontaneous energy.  He has shot for bands such as Mastodon and Empire of the Sun, and worked alongside Surf & Skate companies … [Read more...]
