Why share one @fnnch piece when you can share...every single one you find?😬
Meanwhile on the blog, October’s post is up! One River, Two Countries, and a Thousand Islands is all about exploring the region of more than 1,800 islands dotting the St. Lawrence River as it passes between Ontario, Canada and New York State.🚢 Link in bio!
There is a child in all of us that still wishes we could follow our dreams to be an astronaut👩🏼🚀, a rockstar👩🏼🎤, a chef👩🏾🍳, etc. We’re just grown up children who have let fear and “reality” stop us from going for it. Well, the reality is that there are kids who have grown up and made it to the moon, kids who played gigs in their parents garage and now are rockstars selling out arenas globally and kids who started by burning cookies in the oven and are now world renowned chefs. So this Halloween instead of just dressing up as something you wish you were, take the first step in making it a reality💫 👊🏽
Honey, I’m home 🍯🐻 This year, I wanted a costume that symbolized both my move to SF and my newly-rekindled appreciation of art. @fnnch is my favorite San Francisco street artist; his iconic pop art-inspired honey bears can be seen all over the city. His mission is to bring art to “the other 95 percent”, those who don’t have the time or money to see beautiful works in museums. This cheery little bear has made me smile every time I’ve seen it, and I thought I’d pay homage to it this Halloween. I made this costume from a headband, the cardboard box my @toboxusa toaster came in, paint, and hot glue. The process I used to make the headband, from start to finish, is on Fake and Basic today at http://bit.ly/hey-there-honey [link also in bio]
Here is a 2 minute clip (in two parts) about my contribution to the #StreetCreative project by @creativefuture1. You can find the full 13 minute documentary at StreetCreative.org.
The other amazing artists involved were @wrdsmth, @megzany, @imalexinc, @jazzguetta and @unfukyourself.
I am honored to be part of this project and hope you check it out in person if you’re in the Arts District of LA.
