Friends Helping Friends!! New York Open Mic Podcast!

Hey guys!! My amazing, insightful and talented friend BrokeMC has started a great podcast series called the New York Open Mic Podcast, where he shares the talents and magic of open mic performers around New York and interviews open mic hosts. One of the many great things about this podcast is how complexly varied the performances are. So many genres of audial expression-  freestyles, impromptu poetry, folk, punk, rock, beat boxing, just to name a few- are presented by first timers and veterans, sometimes side by side, that you can almost feel yourself in the room sometimes. ALSO! Broke does a great job of sharing information on the venues and musicians in the podcast, so finding a new favorite musician is easy! His Open Mic directory is also a huge help to aspiring musicians and performers who are looking for places to express their truth. There are only a few episodes so far, but I’m excited to hear what the future has in store for this podcast.

Vector Thursday!

A little late but still in there for vector thursday!

This handcuff is vector of a piece of jewelry that one of my collaborators owns. It’s an iconic piece of branding that he uses on a t shirt on livetees.store, a next level tshirt company that makes enhanced t shirts that react to your phone, for his long running urban magazine Felon Magazine.

This piece was something i came up with when i was first getting into the design of sacred geometry, metatrons cube, hexagons and circles mating and mixing. I love playing with these elements in my everyday design play still. i really dig the weird moire pattern between the circles.


These designs were going to be for memorial t shirts for a really good friend of mine, my first best friend after i moved to california, who passed away. he was practically an icon in the town where we met and the people who knew him usually had a crazy story about him. He had a great sense of fashion and creativity and an eye for imagery. he could help you find the magic in your work before you knew it was there.

And remember- if you draw, paint, sculpt, shoot photos, dance, dj, rap, make beats, tell jokes, write stories, make clothes, grow food, make jewelry, shoot movies, crochet, make toys, build stages, play instruments or do anything else creative, please hit us up and we’ll figure out how to best show off your art!

See ya next time!!
