This week started pretty sucky and disappointing, but it picked up and is ending on a great note with lots of hopeful and new opportunities being talked about. On another note, I got these cheese fries today @ ConeyIsland, and they were like 700 calories, but I don’t care because they were amazing.
Xanadu and White Gorilla. Long lost siblings????
We got a new community garden in the neighborhood (931-33 Bedford Av) and it’s so nice! I want to say thank you to Target because they bought it for us! I’ll definitely be spending some time here…
Shredded art piece by Xanadu Pluto Reed-Rader. Eeeek.
Out now in Flux Magazine. The story was largely inspired by Vernor Vinge’s "Rainbows End" (hence the title).
This is a new story we’ve been trying to finish for the last month, but it seemed every time we started to work on it, something else with a deadline would appear. You can see the whole story at R+R.
Coming to a store near you soon, Xanadu in a box!
One of my favorite outfits we’ve ever shot from today. I had an urge to play Simon. I wish I could dress like this everyday. It’s amazing.
The next month is pretty hectic with shoots scheduled and deadlines. It always is slow for a few weeks where you wonder "Why isn’t my email ringing" and then suddenly it all hits and you have to tell some clients that you just can’t do it this issue. All the shoots this month are very heavily "us" in the sense of alot of creative freedom and being able to experiment more. Most excited shoots in the works: Mr. Wubba, Cousin Itt, Future. Stay tuned!
Pink Bunny is amazed. "An enormous pink bunny has been erected on an Italian mountainside where it will stay for the next 20 years. The 200-foot-long toy rabbit lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Viennese art group Gelatin designed the giant soft toy and say it was "knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool". And Gelatin members say the bunny is not just for walking around -
they are expecting hikers to climb its 20 foot sides and relax on its
belly.The giant rabbit is expected to remain on the mountain side until 2025."
