I’ve been admiring the French illustrator and style blogger, Garance Dore‘s site for a few years and thought I’d share a little of its goodness.  For those of you who are still discovering the lovely photos and documentation of her global travels with boyfriend Scott Schuman (better known as The Sartorialist), enjoy.

Gideon Chase via the US

The work of American painter Gideon Chase is all over the interweb, but there is very little info about him.

A ditty about Chase via LifeLounge: Apparently coming from a pretty creative family, American artist Gideon Chase...

South Carolina-based multimedia artist Hollis Brown Thornton blends tactile artistic methods with digital ones to create his multi-layered and dynamic work. His advice for young artists: Work. Work.

Cultural Intimacy

Manjari Sharma‘s series of shower images are intimate, voyeuristic and eerily beautiful. For the past few months, the Indian-born, New York-based photographer has been inviting men and women who are essentially strangers into her bathroom-turned-studio to create portraits.

Rough Edges in Mexico City

A few years ago I had the pleasure of working with designer Ron Garkey at an apparel company in Los Angeles. Not only is he a super sweet human being, but he has a fantastic eye for texture and beauty within the urban landscape. He just got back from a trip to the electric Mexico...

My dear friends Steve and Joycie are getting married! And aside from being one of the most fun + inspiring couples I know, they’re darn photogenic. Check out the results of an engagement shoot in Los Angeles by talented (and super sweet, according to Joycie) wedding photographer Sarah Yates.

Twenty Years Later

In honor of our friend Time, I’m posting the above shots. It’s my birthday today, so I thought it fitting to post a shot of the fourteen-year-old me next to the current version, twenty years later. Back then thirty-four was ancient. And now? So far, so good.
