i once heard yo can never spread yourself too thin and that saying is not making much sense to me. i am literally running on fumes. real life is no joke. this clothing line launch is more than one would think. again its missed deadlines. unexpected drawbacks. other various projects, and relying on other people. if one thing i learned in this proccess/life is you can never depend on anyone for your fate. you must manifest your fate. you cant wait on te ball to land in your hands. you need to have your hands out and anicipate and approach the mf. failing to prepare is preparing to fail. i actually heard some good advice from my pops today he told me the 6 p’s poor preperation produces piss poor pain. actually i think it was something else and i just made that up. i cant think of it right now. actually i think it was prior preperation produces perfect performance. or something to that efct. im gettin side tracked. well anyway. i am not good at this blog shit. because i dont take enough pictures. well i know i ont take pictures and when i do i usually dont post them. i should probably get better at that. hopefully i will do that once i move. wishful thinking.  the design stuff and other fashion stuff i posted have all been stuff i a m really admiring right now. tese are just several of my inspirations at the moment. before i stop this post i want to shout out all my people at blvckscvale they opening up their pop-up store in the city this weekend. and i also want to shout out some of the folks over there at skinnyboughtem.blogspot.com they have the illest blog on the net right now. check their shit

hajime sorayama kaws figure Hajime Sorayama x KAWS

Here’s a preview of an upcoming collaboration between KAWS and Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama. According to the arts collector,

We just caught wind of this upcoming figure collaboration between KAWS and Hajimie Sorayama. Based off the signature on the sketch, its clear this conceptual design was illustrated by Sorayama, however KAWS hinted to the project on his Dec. 2 blog post, noting the two had started working on the project a few years ago. The sculpture will be cast in metal and is a hybrid of the KAWS Companion with Sorayama’s Future Mickey Mouse (pictured below), which was also released by Medicom Toys. We can only guess this guy will be called Future Companion, continuing the ongoing progression of the character that KAWS has already developed, from the Original, through the Five Year Later versions. No news yet on a release date, but price is rumored to be around $1,100.

This is a project we definitely look towards. Stay tuned for more info!

With a complex and fascinating personality, Picasso had, however, bouts of prolongued bad humour, be it on account of his family problems or dissatisfaction with his work. During those times, he was unbearable – nothing was ever good enough! – which could explain his short-lasting relashionships, especially with women. However, he also showed a generous and tolerant side towards other artists and creative people, in general; he respected their work and tried not to intrude upon them.

So, when someone wanted to photograph him, he would obediently follow every instruction, as if he was amazed at the frenzy of tripods, cameras and projectors that surrounded him. Numerous pictures of the Spanish painter were taken using this method, by photographers such as Robert Capa, Cartier-Bresson, Yosuf Karsh, David Seymour, Robert Doisneau and Man-Ray, and, although they’re very good, they show more of the photographer’s personality than Picasso’s. This, however, was not Edward Quinn’s approach.

Edward Quinn started out as a musician. During WWII he became a RAF pilot and, once the war was over, he continued to fly civil airplanes. During the 1950s, he lived in Côte d’Azur, which, at the time, was already the place of leisure of countless international celebrities. So, he decided that it might be a good idea to become a photographer… In 1951, during one of his assignments, he met Picasso. In the first photographs he took of the painter, he let him work freely, with no artificial poses.

Picasso felt at ease with the photographer and focused on his work, forgetting he was being photographed. And thus, for over 20 years, Quinn entered the painter’s private sphere, capturing the man behind the artist – his house, women, children, friends, pets. He was one of the few privileged enough to do so and he was able to gather the most amazing set of pictures of the painter known to date. Picasso, on the other hand, never asked him to see his portraits; he knew that, inspite of the journalist’s interest in him as an “object”, there was a code of etics taken into account. That’s why they became friends.
